For tomorrow's skating competition I have to transform myself into a green faced witch.
It's not as easy as you think.
I bought expensive theatrical makeup and watched lots of Elphaba tutorials but it took a great deal of patience to get the color I wanted in all the places I needed to be green. I have to be green for 4 minutes and then an hour later be an old librarian for 4 more so I have to get the green off as fast as I put it on. Gulp.
The green really makes your wrinkles pop. I won't have any trouble convincing anyone that I am a wicked old witch. The red wig was just for fun. I probably will just go with my own witchy hair but I couldn't resist trying on all the costume pieces I have leftover from last year.
As for the burned foot. I babied it all week. The neighbors must think I'm nuts.
Not bad. With enough salve and a big bandage I should be good to go.
So....when was the last time you put on a costume?
