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!
