I hope that everybody – children and adults alike – enjoyed last nights’ spooky shenanigans.
I don’t generally take part, but this year I decided to jump in with both feet and dress up. Here’s how I did it:
Hair full of flour to create dusty effect
A paste made from flour and water to create pallour and flaking dead “skin”
Shoe polish to create a hollow look to the cheeks, make hands look as though they’d clawed through soil
Mascara around the eyes and mouth
A slash of bright lipstick to create “split” mouth
One pirate costume from Asda
The result: One Zombie Pirate Lass!
Tonight we shall have our seasonal Samhain meal and I shall spend some time contemplating on my ancestors and missed loved ones.
