Halloween has become one of my favorite holidays over the past few years. It's a chance for me to get a little creative and try something new. While some people like to dress up more provocatively, I like to be as scary as possible. Three years ago, I was a dead/zombie ballerina and scaring the crap out of everybody was amazing. Imagine that skull pictured above painted on my face, eyes and nose completely black and hollowed out, in a dark ballerina costume. Creepy!
This year I was inspired by Lady Gaga's latest video, Applause, to be a Jester. I love how she smeared bright colored makeup against her white face to add some artistic vibrance. I knew that I wanted to try this look for a video while still incorporating a food/drink element. The Brain Hemorrhage cocktail shooter was one of the first ideas to come to mind. It was so perfect! And this is what we came up with. I had the greatest time creating this video and it was really refreshing to try something experimental rather than make another recipe video. Feeling refreshed and excited!
