Halloween 2011 – Part 1

The great thing about Halloween, is that people celebrate it over not just one day or one weekend, but almost the whole month of October!  This weekend I painted my first round of awesome faces for some cool party goers, and got some great photos to share with you.  First… check out this fun family!  What happened after Beauty and the Beast got married?  They had a Son of a Beast!

Mr. Beast won the Best Male Costume prize at their party!

And my first Avatar face… pretty excited with how well she turned out!  She also won a costume contest!!!

A creepy Skeleton is a classic Halloween costume…

And last but not least… my flesh rotting zombie face that I wore to the Cleveland Zombie Crawl.  The Old Angle bar voted me best zombie costume!

So what is your idea for next weekend?  I still have appointment times open for Saturday the 29th, and am available on Monday the 31st to get your kids all ready for their trick-or-treating!  Contact me for details!

Pretty Painted Things…

Here are a few of my recent paintings, a little more pretty this time.  Not everyone wants blood and guts at halloween time!

Ok… and one more that’s not as much pretty as pretty darn cute!!!

TERMINATOR

Check out this awesome Terminator face I painted! At a dance for 1200 kids, he won the top prize in the “Best Makeup” category! Good idea for a costume and I was happy to help him bring it to life. It was super fun!

I’ll be back….

Lets talk about HALLOWEEN!

While I’m sad to see summer go, I am always excited for the most magical time of the year to begin…

The only time of year when everyone plays dress up and pretend all together!  It is also the absolute BEST holiday for picture taking!!  So why not take this years costume a step further and REALLY get into character… with paint!

I am happy to announce that this year I will be taking appointments to paint people into character for the main party night, Saturday October 29th.  I will be booking by the 1/2 hour beginning at 10 am and taking my last appointment at 5:30pm.  Each 30 minute spot will be $50.  Longer periods of time may be available, and can be determined by the type of design you are looking for.

What can be done in 30 minutes?  For instance: a full zombie face with 3D FX like torn flesh.  A full character face, plus hands and shoulders (like the hulk or other comic book character).  Elaborate masks for a masquerade ball, or monster faces and hands.

Is your vision bigger than just the face?  NO PROBLEM!  We can discuss your idea and determine how much time will be needed.

BOOK SOON before my time runs out!  Last year I had dozens of calls the last 3 days before Halloween and had to turn them all away.  Don’t be left out this year!

I am also available on Friday the 28th for a private booking or appointments, and also on Monday October 31st to get the kiddies ready for trick or treating, or to help entertain at a community Halloween event.

Contact me for more information!!

College Craziness

Ahh the College years… when you’re old enough to do whatever you want, and still too young to think you’re too old to do things!  It’s a magical time.  Check out some of the fun ideas these college elite came up with for their face paintings.  They get huge points for creativity!

Making a Mermaid Princess

Hello art lovers!  I know my site has been boring for a while, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been out painting up a storm!  Typically at a gig I am too busy to actually take pictures of my work, so when someone takes them for me it is a rare treat.  Especially these amazing pics by photographer Brian Palmer, who captured his daughters experience really beautifully.  I can’t wait to paint for his company again this winter so he can take some more awesome photos of my work!  Take a look…

Happy Birthday Ethan!

I had a great time last week painting for lucky birthday boy Ethan, who requested to be a zombie!  It was  super fun party with great kids who were all smiles.  :)
