Halloween 2017 : Medusa
My first time sleeping with foam rollers in my hair thanks to Mindy Lee's genius idea for my Halloween costume – Medusa. Because looking Greekish was subpar to Mindy. She even made me the snake head piece. Oh what would I do without my fashion consultant? Greekish. Right.
I was hysterical when I tried on the head piece - I looked like I was wearing a hat. Tears followed, realizing I would have to curl my hair so the snakes could blend in. Something nagged at me when the medusa creator sent me reference pictures for the makeup. The mesh. I have something similar. What is it? Then it dawned on me - the lemon bag from farmers market! Oh yes, I wore it over my face to paint the scales.
I wished I could give the crown for best costume to my genius stylist, but the prize went to our cosplay expert Enzo, who dressed up as Dr. Strange. Professionals no joke.
Halloween 2016 : Black Swan
Mindy challenged my eye makeup skills with Black Swan. And the costume - in HR violation. I have never wore a tutu in my life until then. Won the prize for the scariest costume... didn't need the costume to be scary. Our technical director Angelo dressed up as one of the characters from Games of Thrones.
