Holiday Face Painting Designs

Fa la la la Facepaint…

You have to love the holidays…. any holiday really, because they give me a reason to paint festive things that are only popular a short time of the year.  It keeps my painty fingers from getting bored with the same ol’ thing.  And the kids at all the holiday parties I paint at love them too!

Here are a few new Christmas designs on my board this year…

Ginger Bread Man

Elf Hat

Puffy the Penguin

Rudolph Nose

Sassy Santa Hat

Jack Skellington

Do you have a Christmas party planned in the next few weeks you’d like to add some extra fun to?  Give me a call… I’d love to paint for you!!

Happy Holiday Designs

Christmas is definitely the second most magical time of year (after Halloween of course), and since it’s so special the season deserves some of it’s own face painting designs!  I spent 5 hours yesterday painting these fun and festive choices at a company holiday party and they were a hit!  Maybe you have a fun event planned in the next few weeks that you’d like to add some magic to?  Give me a call!

First up, a new design called Snowball Fight!  This was super popular yesterday, and a personal favorite of mine.

And here’s a little outtake from my self painting session… Had a little trouble with my glitter bottle and dumped it all over myself!  I think a good caption for this photo is “My Snowman pooped on me!”

Happy Holidays everyone!

Painting a Model

Yesterday I painted my first collaboration with a photographer for a photo shoot.  It was alot of fun, and the photos turned out amazing!  Photographer Mark Wearsch had a fun vision and our model did a great job!  I can’t wait to do more fun shoots like this, and I really should hire Mark to follow me around to all of my gigs to get photos like this more often!

Sugar Skulls

Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, s a Mexican holiday celebrated every year on November 1st and 2nd.  Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars honoring the deceased using sugar skulls, marigolds, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed and visiting graves with these as gifts.  Artisans have been making beautifully decorated sugar skulls for generations, and now the artform has turned into very popular face painting designs!

Happy Día de los Muertos!

Halloween 2011 – Part 2

Well it is the day after the saturday before Halloween…. or in other words “Adult Halloween”!  Yet again I had some awesome clients and fun makeup requests throughout the day.  We had fun making magic and I hope everyone had a blast last night!   Check out my creations…

First up, this lovely feline which was my first head to toe body painting!  She was a sexy tiger, and looked AMAZING when I was done.  I can’t post all the pics, since this is a family friendly page, but yes, the stripes go all the way down.  😉

Next up: Zombie #1.  You may recognize him as my skull from last week.  This time he was rockin the rotting and lovin the gore.  I love guys that are into paint!

A lovely Masquerade mask…

A cool Mime… wish I had gotten a pic with her fun hat on.

Frankenstien’s Monster #1 (what a great idea!)

A cute elderly Zombie couple… (they even had a walker!!)

And last but not least, my personal favorite… Frankenstein and his Bride!
(I wish I had thought to get a side shot of my hair… it was standing about 8″ off the back of my head!)

HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE!  I can’t wait to see what challenges you come up with for me next year!!

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!!

Masquerade Time!

I had a great time last night painting masks on the super cool guests of Party Erotique’ at the House of Blues downtown.  Check out these pics of a few happy customers that got their unique masks painted on, which is SO much more comfortable than wearing the real thing!

Horror Makeup

I took a workshop on horror makeup and special effects last week, which was great fun.  I learned how to make some pretty creepy and gross stuff!  Now, I still feel like I have a ton to learn in this department, but I did learn some sweet new tricks and how to use some cool special effects products.  Check out some of what I created… and don’t worry… it’s only paint!

And this guy is a prosthetic foam latex mask.  Once he is painted and prepped, you take out the mouth and eyes and adhere the mask to your face using special body adhesives.  The soft foam then moves with you, so the mouth and jaw and eyebrows all work along with your real face.  It is a REALLY cool effect if you’re looking  for a truly unique costume.
