purr. meow.

Halloween is a big deal in NYC...and just a bit overwhelming. People are everywhere, draped in bloody gore and cleopatra makeup--or sometimes just a loin cloth--and you constantly have to doubletake to figure out if they're in costume or just their every-day freak-o-nature garb. You get my drift. Best costume of the night would have to be the home-made robots--you had to be there. Runners up include Bjork (in swan dress), the bee and the flower (they were a couple..awww), and the American Werewolf in Paris (an almost-perfect likeness).

Me on the other hand...I'm quite boring when it comes to dressing up. Every year I say "I'm gonna do something COOL...and every year, I'm either "a better version of myself" or a cat. so, here I am. ...i'm a cat. meow, purr. of course, i forgot to take pics before the party, and this was taken at about 2am...after a little too much catnip. So, I suppose I'm an alley cat. A forlorn, goth, alley cat. Smudged as it may be, I really think I could get used to the black lipstick... p.s. oooh, i forgot to plug Black Opal eye liner pencil in Licorice. It's seriously black! good stuff, and so much cheaper than that name-brand stuff. go buy it and report back.

fun. it wasn't so much a party, as it was a show...bands and creepy videos...but people were partying it up, nonetheless.

hot! and you're right...the black lipstick is flattering :)

question about the eyeliner, does it streak? i put mine on and about an hour later it has started running. i don't understand. lol

I feel so lame for having not dressed up for Halloween. . . especially when everyone else looks so darn cool!

Hmmm...Lex, I can't promise that it won't streak. I don't know the fix for that...I think they all end up streaking after a while. But, I prefer pencils...at least that way you can just wipe it off and you won't look like you've been cast in a Tim Burton movie.
