Entered another Contest... Gearing up for Saturday!

Another Halloween Contest in the Face Painters' Forum.  That place is so talented, but I like the creative challenge, so here's another entry.  I have to say I enjoy putting the photoshop together as much as painting the entry.  Wish
me luck!

Saturday will be here before we know it, and I'm hoping for a big turnout at the Irvington Halloween Festival. Lana and I will be there before the sun arrives, but the festival is from 9-5.  I hope I get the opportunity to walk around a little and see what all they have to offer, but I'll be just as happy if I am too busy!  So, everyone needs to come by!  It's an excellent opportuntiy to get your costume completed or just a little extra bling for your night of haunting the clubs.  On East Washington between Emerson and Arlington... look for the Big Red Tent!

See ya'll there!

Halloween is the New Christmas!


No need to guess why.  The costumes, the make-up, the playful fantasy.  Perfectly normal adults giving into imagination.  It should happen more often, if you ask me!

Lots of happenings going on.  Parties, balls, movies, Zombie Walks.  Lots of reasons to need a painter!  It's a very busy season for us, but all is not lost!

There may yet still be time to book a personal painting session.  Need to be a Zombie?  the Scarecrow or TinMan?  a Sparkly Fairy?  A Ventriliquist's Doll?  going to a psychedelic club and want to glow?  Paint is lightweight, comfortable, easy to wash off, and hypoallergenic.  FDA approved ingredients, so it's really make-up, not paint.

Send us an email to partigras@gmail.com to learn more and book an appointment!

I Won! I Won! I Won!

So exciting.  Won my first contest.  Whoopee!  I also entered my second contest, but the competition was fierce, so I was happy to not take the title on this one.  I really like the contests because they are really sparking my creativity.  I am patiently awaiting my winnings.  Okay, not so patiently, because I'm pretty aincy, but I'm very excited to be trying another maker of professional face paint, and to have more UV reactive paint.  (Rollerskating parties anyone?)

So, here's the winning photo, and the non-winning photo.  Enjoy.

Irvington Rocks!!!!!

It's official!  PartiGras is going to be at Irvington Halloween festival!  I'm so excited because I hear they do Halloween up right, and the festivities have already began!

We'll be offering up our usual menu of butterflies and supermen, but I've also been working on some special Halloweeny ideas special for the occasion.  Plus, some fantastic colored hair clips to add to your costume.

Come by and let us gussy up your costume for trick-or-treating!
It should be great, I hear Akasha is already drumming some business up for us!  But there may be another painter there, so look for the red tent!
