My first instinct when I saw these Red Cat Eye Contacts was to do a vampire look, but I immediately shot that down feeling it was a little too overdone. I very quickly jumped to an idea I would be much more passionate about - pirates! Although having recently seen a book with the subject matter, I think doing a "vampirate" would have been awesome. haha Maybe someday?? lol
The contacts are Spooky Red Cat Eye Contacts from SpookyEyes. This is my fourth pair from SpookyEyes and I love these just as much as the others! I would happily own every single pair of their contacts if I could. haha They have the best designs!
The SpookyEyes contacts really bring the look together. I love the red color and how evil they look. :)
The hair was fun to do. I added lots of little braids and twists, beads, twine, and feathers!
These last photos were taken indoors so I wouldn't have the sun glaring out the details. I had a cut over one eye, across one cheek, and a fun "X" cut on my chest which started to peel a bit in the photos, grr. But I liked it nonetheless. Then I had bruising on my chest, shoulders, and one of my cheeks. I was pleased with the results considering they were done with really basic materials. :)
Phew, this little project has been a hassle in the making! I am a month late getting this up. I was so excited, spent the night researching pirate ideas and practicing cuts and bruises on my arm, preparing for this look. Then the next morning I came down with a terrible flu which left me in bed the majority of July. It was the worst I've ever been sick. Of course I felt like the worst person in the world for missing my deadline, but the people at etailPR were so patient and understanding, which I am beyond grateful for! When I was finally well again, I did rush a bit to make up for lost time. I think that just ended up putting me further behind, because I had poor lighting which caused a lot of glares and was unable to get out to any fitting location, so I ended up having a lot of not-so-good photos and a lot of editing to do. Gah.
But all the struggles aside, this was a really fun look to do and I was especially excited to learn to do bruises and cuts, play around with the contacts, and do a pirate look. :)
