Oh and as a ps to that last post. I also got a perm. And I held 80's day at my school. I went as a sort of Pat Benatar/ Joan Jett person, no neon for me. Not that's I'm against it, I just didn't have any.
Today I had the AMAZING experience of going to the Castle of Chaos, a haunted house in SLC, and interning with their make-up guy, Chris. He was awesome and I had a blast learning how to air-brush.
So for my first one we did a vampire. The pics are of me, but I got to do my friend. First you do cake foundation as a base. Then air brush on the purple.
Then you get to put the black on. It goes not completely over the purple but more like in the middle of it. Then you highlight with white and you're done. This is me and Sara.
Then I got to do a skull face all by myself! I forgot to get one when I was done though.
Meanwhile this is the work of some of the actual professionals.
This was just one layer of color. He did like 3.
Here's a finished one by that same guy.
And here's a latex mask Chris made. Sweet!
It was great and I'm really glad I went. I should be going back tomorrow and two times next week. Then hopefully I can use my knowledge for our spook alley here at the Square. And of course I could not resist going home and putting my teeth in from dad =D

I've hit 1700 hours out of my 2000 I need to finish school. Things are going by so fast! And I still have so much to do. The next two months are going to be nuts.
In October- I'm on Production Team and Take-Home Team which don't sound like a lot but it is. I'm taking an extensions class. I have a haunted house to plan, set up, and STAR in for work ;) And all the birthdays on top of that! Shout to daddy, ryan, emmy, Trevor's grandpa and sister and ME!
In November- I want to be in Phase 2, which is our mini salon. I have to take Final Phase, where we learn everything for state boards, I have to take State Boards (and pass), Be on the Be Nice (Or Else!) Team, and be in AZ for a fabulous week!
Then Dec 4th is my last day. That's it. So I hope I can find a job by then. I will most likely be staying in the Provo/Orem area. With a very slim chance of SLC. Not sure I even wanna drive that far. I guess on the plus side, if I do get another job I'll quit working nights. And it'll be fun to actually get to see Trevor for once.
Graduation is the 12th of December and I should probably start thinking about what I want to do for my model. Oh and there's most likely a photo shoot this month too that I so desperately want to do. Just need some inspiration. I can't decide between the creepy where it would still be good-looking and sort of fashionable or just going with regular creepy and giving a shot at prosthetic pieces and making a creepy zombie thing.
