so far I showed you two photoshop tutorials for Halloween inspired profile pictures. (Demon and Skeleton) But today I tried out my Halloween Makeup for the Halloween Party I’m throwing next friday. I’m so excited! This year I will dress up as cat basically due to my tight student budget.
So I bought this set of ears, collar and tail a few years back but never whore them. A good trick that I learned while living in the states is to buy Halloween costumes in advance for the upcoming year just when Halloween is over. The stores will reduce prices by up tp 70%. I bought a really cute Alice in Wonderland costume once right after Halloween and instead of spending over 140$ on it I paid about 45$ including stockings and a petticoat.
The rest of the costume will be made by things I have at home. I’m going to wear a black fake leather dress and of course I need a matching Makeup. I didn’t want to spend money on extra Makeup utensils so I tried to create the whole look with what I had on hand. And it worked very well actually!
So let’s start with the Halloween Cat Makeup tutorial!
I change my profil picture every year for my favorite holiday Halloween. This year I turned myself into a Skeleton. But a few years back I did demon. I really like the demon selfie and wanted to show you how I created it. There’s still a couple of days left before Halloween arrives and this step by step tutorial only takes like 30 minutes from start to finish.
as promised I made a little rug out of my t-shirt yarn. I created a tutorial on how to make t-shirt yarn earlier this month if you need to make some first.
I’m kinda out of the loop when it comes to crochet. I haven’t done it in quiet a while that’s why my rug looks a little…, well let’s call it “edgy”. It’s a fun looking rag rug. I do like all the knots and messiness of it though. It’s going to be our rug for the bathroom. I hope my roomates like it as much as I do :)
So as you may have noticed I’m getting all excited for Halloween. Unfortunately we don’t really celebrate it here in Germany. (As we also don’t do Pumpkin Spice flavoured anything, which is making me super sad)
Every year for Halloween I change my profile picture on social media. This year I turned into a Skeleton. Two years ago I used Photoshop to turn myself into a demon for Halloween. If you want a tutorial for that I’m happy to create one. Just comment below :)
Here comes my absolutely favorite recipe of all time. If anyone asks me whats my favorite food is, I’ll always say it’s Königsberger Klopse. Outside of Germany almost nobody knows this dish. It’s a very traditonal and old German recipe.It’s definitely comfort food and goes perfectly with the fall and winter seasons. We usually eat it with boiled and salted potatoes or rice.
The meal is named for the Prussian city of Königsberg. The meatballs in this recipe can be made from minced veal, though we often substitute it for less expensive beef or pork.
So it’s the 1st of october and that means it’s time for my annual Halloween Selfie. I’ve been a vampire, a daemon and a zombie before. This year I’m a skeleton bohoooo. You could have done a skeleton make-up but I’m not really talented at that so I used Photoshop to create this spooky Halloween self portrait. If you want to know how I made this, leave me a comment and I will whip up a tutorial.
