circuses and face paint


I'm not that into Hallowe'en... ever since the candy part vanished when I was a teenager, it's just that annoying holiday that always requires you to have a costume when you can't be bothered. Although looking at these pictures from a circus party night I went to, I'm not sure what my problem is with costumes exactly... Face paint forever! There was a woman moving through the crowd and I think I was the last one she did... clearly she was saving the best for last!

I want to be a trapeze artist now

Amandine has her arm painted... maybe a wiser move for taking the metro home at the end of the night!

Anyway, Hallowe'en or not, tonight is the first day of a four day weekend round these parts, so I'm off to let the celebration find me. Trick or Treat to the rest of you!

I love facepianting....a little too much :)

Just want to let you know I went back and read your post on Homesickness. I had remembered it from reading it about 2 years ago. ha! Now is rings very true for me, and I still love it.

The fact that I still remembered that post shows that you're an excellent writer :)
