You are beautiful

A mask for all seasons

Are you addicted to Foto Decadent? If you aren’t you should be… I don’t have a live journal acct to comment, but I do get a great deal of inspiration from that blog… This time, was a thread on Vogue Japan’s Beauty magazine, these masks, although a little late for Halloween, are really quite lovely. The painted face, in particular I loved. Which I did for Halloween, using my Chanel compact from 1998, and still haven’t used half of it yet….

This fashion spread inspires me, perhaps to try to use masks beyond a yearly costume, where else can you wear one without getting to many looks? I guess it’s time to start thinking of a Holiday Masquerade party? Perhaps we should have one right here? Oh, come on, I know you want to come! :)

  1. Love the royal purple in the last feathery one. Did you catch the article in the LA Times this weekend that had a tutorial on making feather headpiece/headbands? Check it out! :) http://www.latimes.com/features/lifestyle/la-ig-diy11nov11,1,7039004.story?ctrack=2&cset=true

  4. Interesting that Vogue Japan is featuring exclusively Caucasian models (at least in this piece).

  5. Recently some friends hosted an SCA event, themed “Inferno,” with a masquerade ball. How fun! Perhaps events like that are a good way to start with the masking?

  8. Some friends threw a Fellini themed birthday/costume party recently. Very fun. I dressed as Gloria, who was part of Guido’s harem in 8 1/2.

  13. I made a half-face mask in this art week thing, but it’s really simple and I’ve tought about gluing feathers to it.

    There was also a mask store in Helsinki but I guess it closed down. They had all these amazing masks from Italy.
