Ghostly preparations

First step of face paint
Adding blood, because blood always helps
Finally reaching the Bon-Odori costume competition area
On the day of the Bon-Odori costume competition, I rushed to a nearby sewing store and bought some white cloth to make a Japanese ghost head wear. I also ended up tying a piece of cloth into a bag using some traditional Japanese furoshiki techniques that I did not know were so easy!

Then I started painting my face even whiter than it normally is, and adding some black lines to look ghostly or sick. I also added blood, because every time I add blood the impact is much stronger on people I meet.
