I know I would never have the skill to try this so I will just admire. About two years ago for Halloween I tried to paint my face like a skull and it was not pretty. I never did a test run so I looked more like some sort of sick clown since I ran out of time to even wash it off before the start of trick or treating. However I have rather perfected a good "dead ghost" look which I did for my daughter when she was a "Dead Ballerina". I will just stick to that.
