Konnichi wa, shalom, hello hello~!

Post by TailGunner on Tue Jul 23, 2013 6:40 pm

Hi there! My name's Meg. I live in Southern California currently, but I was raised in New Mexico. It's definitely different here from what I'm used to!

A few months ago I stumbled across LisaJoyYoung's Youtube videos and I was reminded of how much I freakin' love painting faces. My mom's really the whole reason I ever tried - She is a Halloween nut. Aside from the standard costume face paint she'd do for my brother and I, she also ran a small haunted house for charity for several years, and so I got my face painted a lot while she honed her skills for that. I've always been an artist at heart, so when I was old enough (and had a steady enough hand), I took over helping paint up the monsters, too! Unfortunately her health declined and the haunted house had to end, and so the days of having faces to paint also came to an end.

I guess it never occurred to me that this might be something I could do... outside of the haunt? Haha! I'm an artist (with a day job Wink ) and I make and wear costumes as a hobby, so it seems natural, but I guess I hadn't thought of finding a reason to start painting faces again until recently! I've been lurking here off and on for a while now, and I figured I ought to finally introduce myself. So... Hi! Thanks so much for having me. Smile I hope I can contribute to this lovely community in a positive way.

Welcome to the Forum!
There is a thread called Show and Tell where you can post and share your art with a kind, warm, non-judgemental audience.
There is a thread called TAG! You're it where we play face painting tag.  (I will rejoin in the fall when my life is not so crazy busy).

We totally should! Cool, Riverside's not too too far. Very Happy I'm in Santa Monica. (I'm the onsite manager for a small apartment building, otherwise I could never live here. This place is crazy! :O)
