So I decided to be an elf for Halloween. Not any particular elf... just an elf. I made the cloak and did my own makeup. All other items I had or borrowed.


Not sure why an elf would do the Captain Morgan pose but whatever :p




This makeup is what I wore to the party. And the ears? plain old scotch tape.




The eye paint in this pic is gouache... that stuff was so uncomfortable and a PITA to get off.

Oh and this one just because it's fun.... There is a broken mirror leaning up against the back of my house haha

Super awesome cape! Did you use a pattern?

Thanks yall:)

As for the ears... all I did was pinch the tips together and wrap a piece of clear scotch tape around it . if you do this, make sure all your hair is pinned back!! It's not the most comfortable thing in the world but I can stand it for a night. beats shelling out $50+ dollars for some fake elf ears!!
