HALLOWEEN!!!! Ideas for Next Year’s Gig Line-Up!
How was your Halloween? Did you have time to relax and enjoy it, or were you running around like a crazy person slapping paint on everyone in sight?
I started the week painting Zombies at a college to help them advertise their scary movie night. Check with your campuses CAB offices, and the student center to see if they might be interested in your services for their events! Also check in with the colleges sports directors to see if they have a Kids Club for the little fans, or a crazy night they might need you.
After the Zombie makeovers I taught face painting to an after school program called Proud to be Me. It is a Derek Jeter Foundation (he is a baseball player for the Yankees, that grew up in my town). Check out if there are any foundations out there that might like you to be a part of their service to the community!
I spent Friday morning painting the faces of three middle school teachers for their Day of the Dead parties. Before 7:30am I had three freaky faces in my living room. Contact schools to see if teachers in your area would use your face painting talent to spice up a day in the classroom!
Santi and I were hired by our local mall for three hours during their Halloween Trick-o-Treat fiesta and costume contests. Wow, the lines were incredible, but we handed out our END of THE LINE signs and kept rooting on the parents that were holding the signs for us, and we promised them the best balloons and face paint if they warned the newcomers that the line was closed. We had to stay firm, but we got out on time to head to a Halloween Birthday Party.
After one last private Halloween party in a mansion, I came home totally exhausted. Luckily I kept Sunday free to relax in the morning, do a couple of makeovers in the afternoon and then go out to a Drag show with friends. I opted for the easiest costume, a cheetah, and Santi was this super weird funky mime.
What kind of gigs did you have this year?
Have you thought of a perfect way to run personal makeovers?
Did you make time to get out and dress up?
in the basement!
