    It takes theatrical make-up
    Hi everyone,

    Happy October. Halloween is a favorite holiday of mine and to celebrate you can see my current avatar.

    The avatar is not Marilyn Manson, it's me
    Here I am in all my glory:


    So that you can appreciate the effort that goes into the Halloween costume photo, check me out in a picture from last year's ad:tech with Loxly in contrast:

    I'd like to give big thanks to Loxly for hosting that picture because I was able to send the url to a long-lost, long-distant friend of mine [his computer is set not to accept attachments in e-mail] and we've become closer together thanks to the picture -- plus we're already bickering so it seems like old times

    Why is Halloween your fav holiday?

    I remember the pic and was wondering when you'd make the avatar switch.
    Continued Success,

    Haiko

    Rhia7 Happy Halloween. It has always been a favorite of mine and family, but if my wife dressed like that, I'd run.............kidding, looks nice you would be fun to visit.

    Note to myself: Never try to meet Rhia in person, during any Halloween.

    I have multiple pics of me in different vampy looks/not just that one.
    That one is a particular favorite because not only did I achieve a total almost "reconstruction" of my face just with theatrical make-up (I'm not wearing a mask) I also achieved a somewhat androgynous look.

    I think I always loved the creativity of Halloween -- it's the one time I can really let my imagination roam.
    I loved dressing up to become someone I usually was not plus I always admired the way my Father could carve a pumpkin/Jack-O-Lantern.
    The carving of the pumpkin was a scary yet fun holiday ritual I had with my Father (he'd carved the pumpkin and then would make ghoulish noises that would scare me).

    I was always diminutive and never had the ability to scare anyone but my ghoulish looks gave me a power I didn't ordinarily have and suddenly I become the cynosure of all eyes. I wanted people to notice me in costume when I used to go trick-or-treating, the candy was secondary.

    At a very basic subconscious primeval level, I think television influenced the way I would start to view of female sexual attractiveness.
    Carolyn Jones as Morticia, Yvonne De Carlo as Lilly Munster, Elizabeth Montgomery in Bewitched, and Barbara Eden in I Dream of Jeannie were all "sexual icons" whose sexuality had a mystical element. I could identify with blonds like Montgomery and Eden because I was a natural blond and many women in my family were blond but I had a fascination with jet black hair and every wig I have ever owned (regardless of quality or lack of quality) has been jet black.
    I'm actually a bit squeamish, I don't like blood, I am neither sadistic nor masochistic but the Goth style of dressing turns me on.

    Ever since I was a little girl I wanted to dress as a female vampire; the only times I didn't dress this way on Halloween were the times when my parents were too busy to take me to Woolworths on time to get a decent Halloween costume

    Once neighbors sold black diaphanous cloth remnants at a yard sale -- buying that cloth so that I could incorporate that into a costume was a highlight of my early pre-teen/teen years.

    I guess the next logical question would be: How well have you learned to play your Fender DG8 and when can we expect a YouTube vid with you in full costume playing Crazy Train?

    I also have a fairly good sense of humor and I try not to take myself too seriously

    Thanks for the nice words, Boomers
