I love being able to create something out of the ordinary. And this time of the year gives me a great excuse to do so which is of course, Halloween. Even though I've never gone trick-o-treating or celebrated Halloween it's always been (and still is) my dream to dress up in costumes and go knocking on doors for candy. I think I'm a little too old for that now :( But to celebrate it in my own way, I decided to beautify myself by slitting the side of my mouth ;) What do you think? Do I look pretty enough? You better answer wisely...
This creation was inspired by the "Red Mask" story that used to haunt me in high school.
*WARNING* This is not for the faint hearted. I do not take responsibility for any subsequent nightmares.
The story goes a little like this...
A long time ago in Japan a plastic surgery went horribly wrong and the female patient ended up with slits on both sides of her mouth. After the incident, every time she goes out she wears a white mask to cover up her mouth. But because of the blood the mask is always red. Whenever someone approaches her she takes off her mask and asks the question: "Am I pretty? Do you think I'm pretty?" If you say no, she gets mad and kills you by slitting your mouth. And if you say yes, she says she'll also make you pretty like her by slitting your mouth and then kills you by doing so. So basically, you're screwed either way.
Well I didn't want to scare myself in the process of creating this look so I did a milder version.
This is an easy Halloween costume idea if you don't have anything to wear or have no inspiration. All you need to do is draw extended lips, some teeth, and perhaps even some fake blood.
So....you still haven't answered my question... But don't worry, I will find you tonight in person to hear your answer.
Until then, happy Halloween >:)
