Do we have your attention?

Last weekend I had the crazy (or not so crazy, depending on where you're from) idea of making my friends put on outlandish makeup for a fun night out dancing. I say crazy because we live in Vancouver and, aside from goth nights (Sanctuary at Club 23 if you're interested), you don't see anyone embracing theatrics for the everyday. We started small, but still had a lot of fun. My friend Ratha suggests we rent Bowie's Labrynth the next time we do this. I can't wait!

I lost count of how many times someone asked "what's up with the makeup?"

All of these photos were taken by my boy Kevin on his beloved Leica M2. I think he looked the best, personally.

The makeup is fantastic. No way would any of my guy-friends participate in something like that. I love the pictures, particularly the last one.

The Kitten: I forgot to mention why we are all wearing the same color! We didn't plan very well and most of the eyeshadow we dug up wasn't saturated enough. That was the richest color of the lot.
