Scenes from a Halloween

Today's definitely going to be a nice lazy Sunday chock full of guilt-free snacking and scary movies. After hitting up a screening of The Rocky Horror Picture Show Friday night and going out again last night in full-on 80s cartoon glory I'm definitely ready to get vegetative.

If you're as geriatric as I am or simply an 80s maniac you should know who this is. It's Jem, from Jem and the Holograms! I even found some truly outrageous red rhinestone star earrings as a kiosk in the metro. A huge thank you to my amazing friend Nadia and my incredible Mom for whipping up this costume for me.

My make-up in progress...
 Friday night on my way to RHPS. Those beams of light are some sort of art installation at Place des Arts that had 95% of the Montreal population convinced that we were under alien attack.
Dueling Magentas
 Not-so-great shot of the costume contest. Check out Black Spy from Spy vs. Spy! So cool!
My RHPS make-up look. I was supposed to be one of the Transylvanians

My low-key Halloween decorations: a raven on my bookshelf and a hearty bowl of glittery skulls on my dining table.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend, loves!xx

  7. I used primer, then lipstick applied with a brush and blush and eyeshadow over that but it was a little worse for wear by 3am pizza time. I used this tutorial: http://www.kandeej.com/2009/09/jem-80s-rocker-power.html
