At work each year we have contests by dept for best decorating and/or best costumes. Our group did a haunted cemetery scene in the office. I had a limited time, budget and supplies in order to participate. It also had to be something I could easily put together at while I was at work. I decided to do Day of the Dead makeup. I did a little research and was inspired by some artwork I found on Pinterest. Here’s the a pic of the artwork that knocked my socks off! The image I found wasn’t tagged when I initially did my search.
So between the Halloween makeup kit, the green eyelashes and the flowers for my hair, I think I spent about $10. Not bad for a quick costume!
At the time I didn’t know the artist was Big Gus. He’s an amazing tattoo artist! I happened to be watching an episode of Tattoo Nightmares recently and saw the artwork on the wall of the shop in one scene. I did a quick search on Big Gus, found the image on his website and was blown away by his artwork. http://www.biggusink.com/
I’ll have to think about what to do this year for Halloween and come up with some new ideas. I recently accepted a promotion into a different dept at work and my new coworkers are a little more sedate. Hopefully I can talk them into doing something fun!
