My life, cooking, make-up, travel, the joy of home ownership and the occasional rant!

It’s alive (kinda sorta…)

I love my regulars!

Chris is always something dead… or something that probably makes things dead.

This year he wanted to the grossest zombie to ever walk the streets of Grande Prairie.  So I did a sketch of what I though would be good for this year – here is my sketch.

He liked it, so he bought a lot of prosthetics and I made a bunch of things (including the eye ball to hang out.)  Then I spent time building, painting and prepping everything ready to apply on Halloween morning.

Chris lives for Halloween.  This year he walked all over town dragging a blood and body part filled wagon behind him.  Dedicated I tell you.

I borrowed lighting from a photographer friend and she showed me how my new (I bought it almost four years ago!) camera worked and we got it set-up on a tripod.  I took photos all through the process and once I find out HOW, I will have a video of Chris’ transformation to share!  We are both really excited – but I need to learn how to do it first.  So for now here are photos of what we did today.

A before and after application photo comparison – Looks pretty darn disgusting if I do say so myself.

The rest below I took after Chris got into costume.

Studio shots to start with.  See the dangling eyeball?

This one I’m considering submitting to a modelling agency.  Decent head shot don’t you think?

Then it was time to hit the road for the day!

First, he had to pour three gallons of blood into his wagon… which really was disturbing.

And… this is what people were seeing on the streets of Grande Prairie today (and the mall, and BMO, and I have no idea how many other places he got to!)

Another modelling head shot!  I think I like my new camera.

We are already planning next year’s “look”… I love my job!
