Last fall I had the pleasure of modeling a Day of the Dead costume and teamed up with stylist Erick Skarownski and makeup artist Ashlee Bullinger-Nabua to create the look.
Ashlee and I researched different sugar skull designs on Pinterest that we liked and then printed out our favorites to reference. We took different aspects of each sugar skull to create our very own design, integrating sparkles and press-on gems into the final product.
My friend Patrick Vong was my vampire cohort for the photo shoot.
Do you remember watching the Carmen Sandiego cartoon in the 90s? While I barely remember a thing about the show, her red getup is unforgettable and makes for an easy Halloween costume for women on the fly. Bonus points if your date goes as Where’s Waldo!
Red hat (this one I ordered from Spain for a flamenco performance and worked great!)
