Happy Halloween!

I decided to dress up for my last Halloween in school.  I decided to be Margot Tenenbaum (from the movie The Royal Tenenbaums) because I had all of the elements I needed.  It would have been even better if the striped dress was a polo dress instead of a v-neck.  It's Halloween, not rocket science.
 Margot is the surley looking one in the fur coat.

And me:
I was just really glad that I inherited my great grandma's fur coat, it was the PERFECT color.
Fun fact: the striped dress was also from my great-grandma.  I have a picture of me as a baby and she's wearing the dress.

Margot has a fake finger and I wanted to pay homage to it:
I covered my finger in make-up primer then waterproof eye-liner followed by a dusting of eye shadow.  I washed it off after I took this picture during design studies.  It was smearing on things, I was just nervous.  And distracted.

I learned something this Halloween:
You should be something readily recognizable because otherwise you're just the weird girl wearing too much eyeliner, over heating in a fur coat.

James didn't dress up but next year he wants to go as a one armed guy riding a velociraptor.  The only problem is that the character in Jurassic Park that fits that description was played by Samuel L. Jackson.  Maybe we can figure out another, less questionable option.

I turned in my paperwork for my defense on the 16th.  I can't believe it's in two weeks!  I have just a few more tables and things to add in addition to the re-writes.  It's almost ready!

Good luck on your last school project. Love to you both.
