|This years Halloween look: a ghost, not a zombie|
I keep being told to not be a zombie, since I have done that several times. I decided to try something similar, though, since most of the people I would meet had never seen me as a zombie and the zombie look is the only one I have done so far that actually looks pretty good.
I was thinking I should be a ghost instead. Then you could still use blood, and I have lots of blood left over (I make my own blood from syrup and food coloring) that it would be nice to get some use out of.

The neck was more difficult, since you cannot see large parts of your neck, and you also have a bad angle when painting. The result was so-so, but I was already 1 hour late for the party my friend invited me to, so I figured it would have to do.

The Halloween party at Attic (as the place is called) was nice. We then went to the Bottom Cafe Halloween party too, which was also nice. I also stopped by in our magic bar to say hello. Late at night when I was going home, I passed by very close to the bar where one of my friends work, so I dropped in for a quick drink there too. Then I went home.
The ghost look was quite popular, and people kept taking photos of or with me. Everyone thought I was still a zombie, though.
Once I got home, I had to wash off the blood and the paint (otherwise the bed turns into a sticky bloodbath and you get paint everywhere). Getting rid of the toilet paper was surprisingly difficult. Last year I glued a zipper on my face using the same make-up glue, and that came of very easily. The toilet paper did not. I spent about an hour in the early morning trying to loosen the paper up with water and trying to loosen the glue up with some glue remover I had bought at the same time.
