Not, unfortunately, of the Gaiman variety.

I'm co-president of my university's anime club, and we have a Halloween costume contest every year with reasonably fabulous prizes. That was today! I always dress up for our Halloween costume contest, especially now that I need to lead by example Wink The only problem was that my Halloween costume is still pretty far from finished. What was I to do?

I was brainstorming quick, cheap (!), and easy costumes during my class today, and I decided I could be a skeleton/Death. I figured I could just buy white greasepaint from Student Stores (one of our colors is white) and do the rest with either black greasepaint, if they had it, or my own black eyeshadow and eyeliner if they didn't. I ended up using eyeshadow and all of my black & grey eyeliners, because, of course, there was no black greasepaint.I borrowed a long-sleeved black shirt from my roommate, because I wanted to draw bones for all of my exposed skin and did not want to deal with arm bones. I wouldn't have had enough supplies!

My hands wore off over the evening, unfortunately, but you get the idea!

This is amazing. The detail is exquisite. Are you a professional makeup artist or something?

thanks! I had a lot of fun doing it, although all that detail took more time than I expected. And no, I'm not a makeup artist. I love crazy eyeshadow, but I don't wear any makeup at all on a normal day. We drew a lot of skeletons in a drawing class I took last year, though, and I used references.
