masquerade ball! i wore a leopard print mask (of course) n_n
originally i was very much against the idea of buying a pre-made mask, because with 1100 people attending the same event there are bound to be others with the same one. i thought about making my own before realizing i could draw one on with makeup! i was inspired while reading another blog, though the name completely escapes me. (i think it's written by a pair of women, and they're very high profile.)
anyways, in the end i ran out of time so i went to diddam's and picked this out of the mardi gras section for $13. there were about 3 or 4 other girls with my same mask, and many more with it in other colors. oooooh well. i did see a few go the makeup route and it looked awesome! i wish i had taken pictures.
i volunteered for the first hour selling tickets. they sold 1000 online and i sold the last 100 tickets in 24 minutes. o_o so, after that i played customer service and had to tell new people over and over that were totally sold out and couldn't let anyone else in. ):
i don't have dress photos, but i had leopard print nails! they were fake glue-ons. why? because i know i would really go nuts if i tried putting this design on with my awkward left hand:
i made them! c:

Asami just did a review on the sally hansen nail art pen in white, and i agree that the texture and payout leave a lot to be desired. you might be able to see that the leopard spots aren't solid black in some places, but for this look it worked out perfectly.
i actually own these pens in seven colors, as a birthday present from a very generous (guy!) friend:
top to bottom: black, light pink, hot pink, blue, red, silver, gold
the bottom three are metallic, and i believe are more pigmented than the others. i know these are old but i can't seem to find any blogger swatches of them, besides Asami's. o_O if you want swatches or a more thorough review, let me know.
finally, i want to share the song love story by jewelry:
they're crying because this is their last stage performance before the group breaks up. T_T it's such a pretty song though, right?
