a couple of friends and I are going as heads on a platter. We thought it would be easy but we just spent a couple of hours on a mission to find fake fruit, it was so hard to find!

my friend is going as a day of the dead pin-up, too! she did test makeup last night and it turned out soooo well. you had better post pictures!

Soooooo. Our party was last night. I had makeup issues. I didn't test the makeup I bought before last night, and I only bought one kind, so I didn't know how well it would work. It didn't cover very well and kept rubbing off when I would try to add more. I only managed to get some white on before it started drying out my skin and flaking everywhere. Plus it was tingling and burning a little and I got scared I would have a reaction. I took it off before it got too bad. I didn't have a backup costume, so I just stuck with the outfit threw on a bunch of eye makeup and called myself a señorita, since my hair was already done.

I was totally bummed at first. But there was another girl at the party who had the same idea, so then I didn't mind too much. She had the makeup and everything done. Her costume was better than mine in the first place.

Fun! I love group costumes. I'm not going out or dressing up this year but might pull something together for answering the door.

The boyfriend and I are going as Dead Antony and Zombiepatra. I'm going to have a snake hanging out of my boobs and everything.

The costume company we ordered from stupidly sent us a child-sized werewolf costume instead of a toga (WTFORK), so we almost went as Werewolf Antony and Zombiepatra, which would have been funny in it's own way. But we managed to find a toga at a local shop after much scrambling.

I kind of just want tonight to be over and done with so I can stop worrying about costumes.

I'm being Hermione Granger. It's a super-lazy, closet-raiding costume. . . red plaid skirt, red knee socks, black sweater with Gryffindor logo attached (made from cardboard and a safety pin), and a pencil "wand." If I'm feeling ambitious, I might make a time-turner out of cardboard or make a "Hogwarts, a History" cover for one of my textbooks.

My coworkers and I were roller ghouls. I'm the one in plaid. And I'm incapable of making a tough face. I'm reusing the skates for a different costume tonight.

I had to bail on the Mrs. Peacock idea as I couldn't get anything for it and my friends decided to be other things anyway.

My partner and I are going as the number G and the letter 4. Inspired by the old sesame street spoof where Kermit and Big Bird are smoking pot. :P

In what context, if I may ask? This girl I know wanted to be Michelle Obama last year and she was worried about offending people if she put brown makeup on her face, but didn't think anyone would know who she was if she was white. I don't think it's rude if you're just trying to make your costume look real.

I cant speak for the rest of the world, but in the southern US which is the birth place of Jim Crow, black face is not okay. My mom, uncles, and aunts grew up in the middle of segregation and the Jim Crow Laws. Stuff like black face, even when it's not meant to be offensive, is like salt in a wound for them, you know. It's the same for most people that grew up in the south during that era. It's probably not like that everywhere, though.
