Two Faced!

Na-na-na-na, na-na-na-na BAT MAN! Okay, it's Two Face:


Actually here's a better expression, since Harvey Dent was kind of a conflicted dude:


I'm not going to lie, the blue freaked me out at first. I tried to avoid doing the whole side of my face, because anything that hinders my eating and drinking is a no-go, but doing anything less looked like Phantom of the Opera gone wrong. So whole hog it was! And it was actually okay because I used regular lipstick for all of the red, and I know how to eat while wearing that.

For those of you wondering where the heck my grotesque zombie wounds are, I decided to go the cartoon route instead:

I kind of worried about the fake wound glue causing an allergic reaction (I didn't REALLY want to be Harvey Dent), plus, you know, the whole eating and drinking thing. Can't have any fake skin flaps falling onto my hummus.

Here's the whole getup:


The dress that started it all is from F21, the snazzy white gun and makeup are from a Halloween store, and everything else I already owned. I shelled out around $35 for this, but I feel like some of that shouldn't count because the dress is totally cute enough to wear again for something normal. I'll keep you posted.

Hubsey was a Batman character, too, though not one that really "went" with my costume. He was suit-wearing, drink-holding, hair-gelling Bruce Wayne. I tried to talk him into being Bane so we could run around and be evil together, but he didn't want to wear the mask. SIGH.

Did you dress up this weekend? Who were you? Anybody else rock some face paint? Amazingly, I never smeared it!

  8. That is an awesome costume. No dressing up this weekend. It was actually a very chill weekend after being mega-busy over the past few weeks. I did go see Pitch Perfect.
