This afternoon I helped my mum get ready for a costume party she’s attending for a friend’s birthday. The theme of the party is to go dressed as anything starting with the letter B.
Initially my dad was going to dress as Bob the Builder, but changed to a Bikie since he owns a motorcycle and has all the clothing. I convinced my mum to dress as my dad’s Bikie Bitch.
I’m not very skilled at doing makeup on other people, however I think I achieved a half decent smokey eye look on my mum. She rarely wears makeup, let alone black eyeshadow so it was quite a shock once her makeup was finished.
The temporary tattoos were next. I wanted to do two whole sleeves of them, but with today’s heat neither of us had the patience to mess around with them for that long. I took a selection of dragons, pirate and Ed Hardy tattoos and applied them to her forearms, hands and neck.
To complete her look she wore a black shirt, black vest, black jeans and stole my biker-looking boots.
Somehow I don’t think my mum will be rocking this look for longer than tonight. Although I still like to feel I’m slightly a bad influence on her.
