Can you guess what was my Halloween costume this year?
Miss Mafia Véronique and me
Geneviève the bunny and me
That's right... I was Pikachu!
Of course, I was working before the party and when I came home (one hour later than what I was planning), I was in a rush and I didn't have the time to do anything over the top makeup-wise, hence why I don't have any proper picture to show you. I have cropped some semi-decent pictures though, and I hope you will be able to get the idea.
I didn't really have a sepcific idea in mind and I didn't find lots of inspiration on the net so I decided to do something simple but still a little more dramatic than my everyday makeup. I wanted something yellow but of course, I didn't have anything yellow in my stash! I rumaged through my mother's makeup and found the Annabelle Studio 4Show Eyeshadow in Eye-Candy that I gave her some times ago and even though I had to really dig the eyeshadow and even wet my brush for it to properly show on my lid, it still appeared more gold than yellow but, oh well! Then I added some black eyeshadow and eyeliner for definition and ta-dah!
For the cheeks, I used a GOSH lipstick which was a really bad idea because even though I applied loose powder on top to set it, it was a sticky mess and it eventually melted and rubbed off. For the nose, I used the same Maybelline eyliner that I used on my eyes, and it wasn't a great idea either because it rubbed off on everything - and everyone - I touched. Oh well!

My costume was quite simple too - it didn't cost me a thing! I simply used things I already had and I cut the ears and tails in cereal boxes.
This is NOT a camel toe, it's a crease!

It wasn't a big party but it was fun! We ate, drank, danced and played Twister... have you tried playing Twister with drunk people?
A vegetarian plate for me - bread with melted Brie, vegetable mashed potatoes and salad, yum!
Fred the Jedi, Véro and me dancing... LOL
