I'm declaring this the halloween of face paint. I maybe got a little obsessive.
I was a lion. Really easy. Some felt and a headband for ears. Some time looking at face painting tips online. Sam, especially, was very impressed.
Ellery was a witch. A purchased hat, a cape we already had, a big t-shirt turned into a peasant style dress, the perfect red stripey socks and some spooky spidery face paint.
Anna was a flower fairy. I bought the wings. We already had the tutu. I made the crown and the wand. It was the perfect costume for her. Really, she would be perfectly comfortable wearing something like this everyday.
Sam was a super guy. I made a felt mask, but it kept getting in the way. So, I painted on a mask. Which he smeared. The cape came out of the dress up bag.
Brendan was Rincewind. He's a wizard from Terry Pratchett's books. I made the hat from a Simplicity pattern. The robe is actually a Snuggie from the thrift store. I added lots of trim and embellishment. The staff is one of his martial arts staffs with a Christmas tree ornament attached.
There will be more face paint in the future. There is, after all, a while lot of good face paint left and a whole lot of fun ideas online for using it up.
