You can dress up using makeup to put you in fun fantasy character without altering your client's facial features using Halloween face paint to the point they’re no longer recognizable. Try a typical costume or folk outfit from a foreign country. Don a pair of lederhosen, a feathered hat and shorts along with a fancy beer mug and you’re set with a fanciful Halloween holiday costume you can use in a number of other applications until next “All Hallow’s Eve.”
Be a bullfighter, a cowboy, a geisha, a fireman, a wizard, a good witch, a clown, a comic book character or super-hero, or try other fantasy character ideas to spruce up your Halloween holiday portrait. Trust me, if you (or your client) dress up as Spiderman, Superman, a Power Puff Girl or Superwoman (don’t forget the cape) with a pot belly, runaway hips or a sagging double chin, your portrait photo will never be forgotten. Gasp! I shudder to think of it even now!
Ever thought of being the Tin Man, a scarecrow or an Irish Leprechaun? Well then, a few animal makeup costume ideas might strike your fancy. How about making up yourself or a Halloween holiday portrait client, as a cat, puppy dog, squirrel, owl, panther or lion? What do you mean, you want to be a werewolf again. Grow up, Tiny Tim.
