Na, only about an hour. I have a pretty huge arsenal of makeup- it’s kind of my hobby, love to play with it- so I just dug through my stuff and used it in different ways.
In honor of the new series, I give you V
Can’t see it. It’s probably set so that anyone who is not your FaceBook friend can’t see it.
Fun costume!!! Great job
Here I am as a zombie.
Needs more glitter.
Split-panel with inspiration: Harry Crane from Mad Men.
Yikes! Nice zombie.
The scary part is my brother-in-law dresses like that all the time.
Looks cool, but makes me glad I didn’t wear makeup with my costume.

Holy hell Shot From Guns!
Bah! Once again I curse my lack of a digital camera!
Once the transit strike is over, I’ll have to get a friend over to take some shots.
Me. The hardest part was remembering how to tie a necktie.
You don’t look mean or old, but certainly a lady!
I’m not sure how to take this.
I’m a witch fer cryin’ out loud! How much meaner does it get?
Not since Samantha have I thought so highly of a witch Meanoldlady!
Much to my surprise the (hilariously bad) magic show I attended had a costume contest, and this won second place.
Unfortunately I didn’t get a pic that included the skirt, and you can only kinda see the gloves, but you get the idea. (I think the pirate was my best accessory, though. )
It seemed like zombies were really big this year. We had two pair of dead newlyweds, one dead bride without a dead groom, and a zombie pirate (who took first place).
Take it well. That was my reaction too!
I typically say wow when something fairly screwed up happens. Well, thanks then.
I demand full length photos. Build a time machine and take more if you must!
