I am going to let you in on a little secret, I have a thing for witches, especially green faced witches like the Wicked Witch of the West from my all time favorite movie the Wizard of Oz, and more recently, Elphaba the misunderstood witch from the Broadway Musical Wicked. Why you ask? Well, they stand out in a crowd, make a statement, have a little edge and controversy, and they are often unexpected–just like me 😉 

So this year for Halloween, I decided to enlist the help of a fabulous professional make-up artist, Sara (@Superkitty),  who was happy to oblige. She did an utterly fantastic job turning me into Elphaba, complete with green ears and hands to match (thanks to MAC Pro Make-Up, which was very comfortable and super long wearing). I looked so authentic that children were scared, adults were intrigued and casino pokie game everyone was stopping to take photos with me like I was a character at Disneyland–I looked that good! I had such a blast embracing this playful witchy persona, and must admit I felt pretty comfortable and beautiful in my green skin. It made me think a bit more deeply about how we define beauty–What is beautiful to you? How do you define beauty? Here is a glimpse of my green witch alter ego, Hee Hee Hee!

    Honestly Romy, transforming you into Elphaba made me think hard about how we define beauty because once we were completely done, you looked amazing! To some degree, it’s because you had confidence and were constantly smiling. Of course, you did rock the green – you can’t have emerald colored skin and be a shrinking violet!

    On a practical level as a makeup artist, I have to say that you having such great skin made a big difference. Makeup and skincare are indivisible, because if people don’t take care of the skin they’re in, makeup becomes a mask to hide their imperfections. What good makeup should do is enhance the natural beauty that’s there, and as radical as the Elphaba look was, that’s what it did. 🙂
