Makeup and helping with Stamen for the Campus Film Festival!

I figured this would be a good time to post since it's nearing Halloween =] Actually, around now, I'll be helping other friends with makeup, and I'm taking an advanced theatre makeup class, so there will be a few more theatre-makeup related posts coming up! 

My friend Josh entered the Campus Film Festival, and asked me to be one of his makeup artists for his short film called Stamen!  Here's a few behind the scenes pictures from shooting, and pictures of the makeups I did.  The first day of shooting, I was a bit rusty, since I hadn't really done any kind of theatrical makeup since more than a year before, so don't judge too hard >_<, but the second day's turned out a lot better! I even had to step in as an actor! Luckily I didn't have to do any talking or anything XD

 First up, pix of the super creepy location! An abandoned elementary school...






And here's what I did on the first day....




And from the last day. A lot better than the first, right? I think so XD




I had an amazing time helping out with Stamen! We had such a great, talented, dedicated, fun group of people.

Hehe, I took a really good selfie XD




 
Here's our lovely director/film...er? Josh Davis!!
 

We had a few technical difficulties when entering, so it wasn't actually entered in to win the big prize, though it did appear on the website, so we still do have a chance to win something if you would take a second to watch and vote for us please!! =] He worked very hard on this, and put it before everything, even food and sleep, so please help us out!

久しぶりです!♡ I finally had a bit of free time during fall break! Last weekend, me and some friends had a photo shoot with the amazing photographer Yenra, who I first shot with around the end of the summer last year before I went to Japan. We were both excited to finally get to do a shoot together, especially with all the amazing new additions to my wardrobe! =D

I'll start with a few close-up outfit pix from my first outfit! We forgot to get any for the other outfits though =P
