Happy Halloween! Did you have a good one?
I’m afraid I completely avoided the glow in the dark fangs and plastic pumpkin buckets this year, as I was, for once in my life, not babysitting – readers, I was ditched by a 9 year old. She had other plans.
That said, who needs a snotty, nit-infested brat to have fun on ghoul night anyway? (bitter? moi?).
Here is the look I did on Halloween which did not quite turn out as cattish as I wanted, but hey, the cat liked it:
I’m on the right.

*About the contacts – I ordered some from a company from Four Eyez a week ago but they haven’t arrived due to the UK postal strike, so I went out to buy some super dodgy looking ones from a strange shop that had UV paint on the walls and bars that go through nipples.
I chickened out of wearing them because I have never worn contacts before, ever, and I have quite a few eye problems as it is (as the eye Dr said “I think you should stop wearing make up“).
So the cat eyes have been added with Photoshop, but I haven’t done any other editing on my face or make up so you have a fairly accurate interpretation of the colours/finishes.

What I learned from Halloween this year:
1. Children ditch you once they reach the age of 9 and they no longer need you to buy them wobbly plastic witches fingers
2. Cats don’t like fireworks
3. It is possible to get to Halloween and not see a single pumpkin
4. Cats don’t like to be in photographs
5. Contact lenses are scary, but not as scary as the places you have to buy them from
Hopefully you enjoyed the look anyway – what did you do for Halloween? What make up did you do? Did you get ditched by a child?
