FOTD: Cthulhu Cultist (12/31/11)

New Year’s Eve was FUCKING AWESOME!

First, we went to Jay and Laura’s for “pre-gaming,” and I got to hold their newest cat (kind of still a kitten), Decker, who hasn’t let me hold her yet. She’s fierce, and adorable, and we half-snuggled/half-rough-housed. Adorable!! There was also a piñata, and fire crackers! (And now I kind of totally want fire crackers to set off in our driveway every night. Ahem.)

Then we went to Efrain’s and Alex’s, which was Cthulhu-themed, so I went as a Cultist. Pretty much inspired by the HP Lovecraft Historical Society’s Call of Cthulhu, even though it’s in black and white. As to why I went with green and purple, I don’t know. I’ve just always imagined Cthulhu as kind of green with an oily purple sheen. Whether that translated into the makeup…..well….. And I probably should’ve used some orange around my eyes to help make them look sleepless and sunken in, but I kind of like the blue, too. (I don’t think I would have replaced the blue with orange, just augmented it. Maybe some really sallow, sickly yellow, too. Or maybe that would go even more “bruise-y” than I wanted. I was aiming for “deranged, manic, sleepless,” more than “bruised.”)

  1. Badass. I love the super pale skin with the dark purple lips, very deranged-hypothermic-chic.
    For the bruised/sleepless look I find warm matte browns/red-purples to be indispensable. A little under the eyes and along the inner corners really makes a difference.
