454: Happy Halloween from the Painted Lady

Happy Halloween!

I went to a Circus-Sideshow-themed ball and I went as 'The Painted Lady, Literally.'

More detail pics to come, once my dang camera battery is charged!

That is awesome! That is you? At first glance I thought it was a painting - but then on closer inspection: Wow!

Sorry to hear of your decision to close your shop (temporarily) come the new year :( Hope that this time leading up to the close of the year will give you the pause you need to regroup and figure out an awesome way forward. Will be watching...
