I’ve never been a fan of face painting until I had a go myself. I love it now – it’s such a satisfying thing to do. Who would have ever thought! Have you tried it? But I’m still not in to the versions where the whole face is painted or designs with lots of glitter and swirls – you know the kind I mean. Keeping it simple with one or two colours is my favourite way.
So with Halloween coming up I’ve been asking Anya what she would like to go as. Her latest obsession is pandas possibly because she has recently been given a panda soft toy. So this week the choice was panda and I quite liked that it was something other than witches, ghouls and ghosts. With Halloween costumes again, the simpler the better for me and I prefer the homemade kind rather than shop bought. So armed with my face painting set, I thought I’d have a quick trial run at transforming her in to a panda. She was really happy with the look and may go as that to her Halloween party on Friday. It’s far from perfect but that’s what I like about it and I think it’s pretty panda-ish don’t you? Although Richard’s first comment as he walked through the door was ‘who’s that? Alice Cooper?!’
Have a great weekend full of silly fun!
P.S. Have you seen our all new shop? It’s full of adorable clothes for girls and boys that you won’t find anywhere else in the UK.
