It sucks that it fell during the week this year, but I also happen to find it kind of perfect because it coincides with my new blog schedule (Tuesdays are for MOTDs).
And while this is no ordinary MOTD, it IS* Halloween, so I thought I should venture out into face paint this year. I had planned to do a series of Halloween looks but I was unable to because I was ill-prepared.. Maybe next year?
It took me so long to decide what I wanted to be this year, even though it was staring me right in the face. If you read my WUW last week, I mentioned that I’ve been reading Tokyo Ghoul this month. I read the ENTIRE original series (14 volumes) in about one week, #noshame. I’ve actually already started reading the sequel and I’m about to catch up to the weekly releases, lol.
So, what look have I done?
Ken Kaneki is the main protagonist of the manga series, Tokyo Ghoul, for those who don’t know. If you’re into dark fantasy manga, I definitely recommend it!
I really like him as a character and I admire his persistence to protect what’s important to him. I’ve become so immersed in the manga, and I love what he stands for and what he believes in, so this Halloween look is me paying homage, if you will.
Ready for the Halloween Look?
This is my first [official] face paint makeup look for Halloween using liquid and cream paint. I’ve done a few “face-paint” looks in the past for #BeautiesOnFire (Superheroes & Villains), but that was using my regular makeup and they weren’t that good. This one was a game changer, and I was very satisfied with the outcome.
Note: I recreated Glam & Gore’s look, which was easy for me to follow.
I purposefully shot these photos in low-light. My original plan was to do a mini photoshoot during twilight at the park to make it appear as though I was in a remote place, but we couldn’t make it happen, which really bummed me out. Again, I was ill-prepared and perhaps I could try again another time.
What do you guys think?!
Since this look took forever to create, I may end up cosplaying as Ken Kaneki tonight.
My back-up look is a vampire since it’s way easier to put together.
What will you be for Halloween this year?
