    Putting On Makeup

    It's no big secret that I color my wife's hair for her, so this morning, I tried my hand at helping her with her makeup. I think I might have a gift for this stuff...it seems to have really brought out her inner beauty:

    Her office had their costume contest today, so I got to play makeup artist. Instead of using the typical greasepaint from the Halloween stores, she went to a place in Burbank that sells true theatrical makeup and prosthetics to the pros. I know some things I'd do differently with the latex next time, but overall we were happy with how it all came out. She topped it off by hunting down some good clothing and the perfect pair of pointy shoes.

    And she won First Prize in the contest, too.

    wonderful. I wish I had an outfit like that. Unfortunately I only wear make-up about 2x per year or I'd surely let you do mine. That's exactly the look I love.

    You have used your many talents, for evil, not for good

    (Where did you get that picture of me to use as your model? )

    Wow... those stockings are cool. They really help the outfit.

    The hands look a bit disgustingly healthy, but I suppose you had to draw the line somewhere.

    Soooo, did you turn a magic wand for her?

    Interesting. I couldn't help thinking how couples tend to look more an more like each other over the years.

    Some 80 Grit on a Belt sander will smooth that right out!
