All Hallows Eve is just around the corner, and it’s no secret that we are big fans of this costumed, candy-laden holiday. Ideas for costumes abound, but I have chosen a few makeup tutorials to help you put the finishing touches on your ensemble. Whether you’re a zombie enthusiast, or you squeal every time you see a cute fuzzy animal, you can find something that matches your personality.
For the zombiphile:
For the sci-fi nerd:
For the animal lover:
For the artistically inclined (this one looks difficult!!):
And last but not least, for the traditionalist:
There are countless Halloween makeup tutorial videos, so if you don’t see what you’re looking for, YouTube is a goldmine. It’s time to get creative!
Check out our video of the making of Schipul zombies!
For the second year in a row, I am on the Host Committee for DiverseWorks’ Luck of the Draw Summer Auction. This is one of DW’s biggest events of the year, and one of the quirkier and memorable events in Houston each year. The concept is simple. DW asks artists from around the country to donate small works of art that are sold throughout the evening. Numbers are then drawn to determine who gets first crack at the 200+ pieces. As this is a DiverseWorks event, you can expect a great crowd, food and libations. And, to get you properly Gleeful, they’ve invited the choir from Houston School for the Performing and Visual Arts to perform at the event.
Art Change tickets start $100 (the price goes to $125 if you purchase after June 1.), but you can guarantee a Top 20 position for $250 (NOTE: Top 5 tickets costing $500 have sold out.) Regardless of what ticket you purchase, you’re getting a piece of art at a great price. Luck of the Draw is great because it introduces you to art collection in a fun and exciting way. Not interested in owning a unique piece of art? No problem, you can still be part of the fun for $25.
