WW: Fall Festival {Linky}

Since I work at an art school, I decided to be the artist Frida Kahlo.

If you do not follow art here's what the real Frida looks like:

Since I'm mainly German and Swedish, I had to darken my skin somewhat. I think on Halloween I need to darken my eyebrows more, add more blush, and darken my skin a little less.

Mica was Super Man. He wanted me to add his kiss curl.


Isaak was Spider-Man last year, and wanted to be Spider-Man again. He flat out wore the old one so much that it got holes in it. We needed to go up a size.
 

The boys together. We were well protected with two super heroes.


Craziness happened when they won some prizes. 


You can tell Spidy was a bit tired! All was good until Spidy realized as we got home that his mask was left at school. I told him to put it in his treat bag. I said, "Spider-Man doesn't leave his mask behind." He had a melt down. Daddy went to retrieve it. There it was on the gym floor. Lucky for a little boy that dreams about one day being Spider-Man.

You sure nailed the look :)

Great job on your costume. I love it! The boys look awesome too. Yup. You will be well protected from any ghosts or goblins! :)

Carla WorkingMommyJournal said...

Lovely Photos!! Love the kiss curl :)

Harry Flashman said...

You really go the whole hog for Halloween, don't you!

I had to laugh when I saw Spider Man. I don't know what that hand sign means in America, but in Italy it is called "the cornuto" which means "the horns." It means "your wife is having an affair with someone" and making it at another man instantly leads to flying fists.

Kristin Aquariann said...

Cool costume choice! Definitely darken the eyebrows and curve down in middle, but you look amazing as is.

Theresa said...

Wonderful costumes Alissa! You really pull of Freda very, very well!

Renae of Simple Sequins said...

Oh great costumes all the way around Alissa! I don't know the artist you are but I love your adaptation/duplication is spot on.

I think those yellow teeth are awesome. Monsters don't have white teeth, huh?

Missed you this week cuz I was way too sick to even be out of bed = nasty cold that slammed every muscle I didn't know I had. Ya, that sick. lol
