I saw a lot of
idiots people dressing in Black Swan gear this past Halloween.
Just to let you know, I was doing this before the movie. Not in the pretty, tutu and tiara clad way. But the makeup is pretty similar.
Check out 7 year old Jess with older headless brother Dan. He is the horseman from the Legend of Sleepy Hallow.
I had a horrible fever and barely needed the white face makeup, but nothing would stand in the way of my relentless desire for sugar (this was pre-diabetes in case you were wondering). I wonder what was more concerning to my parents; the fact that I chose candy over wellness (probably not uncommon) or that as a 7 year old girl, I wanted to dress up as the Grim Reaper. In fact, with all the limitless possibilities of cosutmes, we both zeroed in on swift bringers-of-death. Please note the kick @ss duct-tape sythe I’m wielding.
In other costume news, here are some illustrations I did for my Product Placement Nutcraker, as well as caricature illustrations of some of the dancers from MBT last season.
I am particularly proud of my renditions of Wyclef in the Party scene, the rally squirrel in the Battle who looks poised for a home run (Go Cards!), Wilford Brimley’s mustache and trainer Bob Harper’s calf muslces in the Kingdom of the sugar-free sweets. Enjoy!
