This Is How I Know It’s Spring

My very first face-painting gig of the year.  It was outdoors and sunny.  It was a multi-birthday party Easter celebration in Kankakee, and I was very impressed with the level of the enthusiasm I encountered.  I always fully expect to be bombarded by the under-10-year-olds.  And I was, up until a certain point of the evening, when confetti filled eggs took precedence.  Then, I was bombarded by the 13-16 year olds who fell in love with the novelty of face and body painting, realizing how long it had been since they let themselves indulge in such a “childish” activity.




The usual designs like tigers and fairy makeup were about, and then two of the older girls wanted cheetah faces and that was the trend of the day.  I find it amusing how these trends take form, and what they are each time.  Butterfly faces or tigers or dragons.




The eyes on the eyelids is also a popular trick, which can be amusing and startling all at once.



I have begun putting together a completely new fairy outfit.  The wings are not the ones I want to use – I’m still deciding on a set for myself.


And my personal favorite of the day:


Now, I look forward at the upcoming season, wondering what adventures await me with the warm weather.
