In 2008, i was Palin, and Craig was "Joe Six-Pack"<--which was a political caricature of that year, meaning the average voter kinda thing.
We nailed it. I spent a week studying photos of Palin, and i did some tricks with makeup, and i painted gold nailpolish in my hair here and there for highlights, i got an oversize pair of glasses, which didn't reeeeally look like hers, but, DID 'work', and i wore a blazer and skirt, and an Obama button on my lapel, as well as several liberal theme buttons.
And i stayed "in character" all night, too...i could totally imitate her!! Much as i loathe her, i did nail this character.
and back then, she had several quotes she was known for, this was when she was running as VP. We all ended up going pub-hoppin later, to pubs having a Halloween parties, and ppl stared at me as if i *was* really Palin, lol, and a few wanted my autograph, lol. One of the bands at one of the pubs mentioned we had Sarah Palin in the house.
Craig wore a plaid vest, (borrowed) and a brown shirt, which i did a great job of drawing of 'six pack abs' onto. He had a hat that he could drink beers off of each side, either that, or a baseball cap with a beer logo on it. I attached plastic six-pack rings all over him. Probably some other stuff, too, can't remember, but, Craig mostly wants only very minimal costumes some years..
ONe of my favorite costumes i ever did, completely homemade, was i a Brick House, and Craig was a brick layer.
I took a fairly long red blazer, and painted white 'mortar' stripes across it, and also, several going vertically, to make the shapes of "bricks" all over me. I added in some lil globs as if the mortar was oozing a bit here or there, to soften the stripes, looked VERY realistic. I also added in some darker red and brownish dabs here or there on the bricks.
I made a roof (paper 'shingles', glued onto cardboard) and ended up wearing my roofs on my shoulders, not my head, so i could get into the car. I took a plastic headband, and made a cardboard chimney, to wear on my head.
I took two matching smaller rectangle boxes, and made windows, with curtains and all, and sewed/glued these on my chest, and made a front door, also out of fairly flat box, and attached it down low in front, and made grass all around the hem.
I was a brick house...
Craig wore bricklayer clothes, like painter's pants, work shirt, and his hat read "Best Lay in Town" with a trowel logo, and he had trowels on his tool belt, and he had bricklayer logos on shirt, which i made and glued on.
these were fun costumes to wear.
Obviously I don't have the same talent Jean Marie has and most people don't...
The most hilarious costume (or was it a costume ?) I saw, was a girl I knew , but no one could recognize her... She came has a fully decorated Xmas tree with everything even the lights; we were in a bar so what was too funny is that she had to check where the plugs were to light herself... The Xmas tree even managed to dance, strangely, but fully alighted !!!!
WoW - Wee, this is wild!

Dia de los Muertos (Day of The Dead) is a Mexican Holiday that takes place on November 2nd. This tradition is not affiliated with Halloween. I just thought this would be a great look to start off my halloween series.
I JUST *LOVE* HER! Gotta dig her voice and gestures...

How? Read this description. It's a regular zipper bought from a sewing store... Glued the fabric edging to my face with liquid latex, as flush as possible with my head tilted slightly back, and when I tilt forward it naturally wants to open up.
Red "Blood Effects Gel" used for the inside; heat it up to flow and when it cools it gets hard again and stays put, but still looks wet and goopy.
Zipper fabric was coloured by rubbing/soaking fake blood into it near the metal, and flesh-coloured cream makeup on the outside to make it blend with my skin somewhat. Could have blended it with my skin with better tools and effort.
Done to myself in about an hour. Made it up as I went, there might be better ways.

For this collaboration both of us did a look inspired by a butterfly, this is an interpretation of how we would translate that to makeup :)
This is an improved version of my last butterfly look. I prefer this one because it dose not go anywhere near the crease so you could wear something like this for 24 hours and it will not budge :)
For the paper wing I first drew it on black paper and then cut it out using a craft knife (if you do this be CAREFUL) I then painted it with nail varnish :)
