|Makeup by Yours Truly|
On October 27, 2021, I joined the Trick or Treat Showcase on Sessions Live. As everyone was excitedly preparing for their own showcases, I was my usual last-minute self. I ordered a black cape online which only cancelled a day before the showcase. So I had to think fast and conceptualize differently from what I had originally thought.
At 8PM at night, I found myself cramming of what I could do or be for the showcase. But I know myself a little too well. Managed to get everything I needed for the new "zombified pumpkin look" I'm aiming for, except for the outfit. I remember I used to have an orange and black outfit back in the day so I dug up old suitcases of clothes and yessss, I found it! And it was only at midnight when I started lining up potential songs for the 20-minute performance. Oh yes, I always love the adrenalin rush!
Showcase day arrived and I did my Halloween look in less than an hour - surprisingly! Everything was makeup-based anyway, no prothetic makeup needed. Thanks to my adrenalized pulse, everything was created with no erasures!
Didn't have much liberty to study new songs, however I just picked out songs from my repertoire which I might be able to pull off spookily. And one of them is a Betty Hutton classic "It's Oh So Quiet", which was later popularized by Björk. Enjoy my spooky version!
