Woman uses makeup to make herself into spooky creatures all October long
Halloween doesn’t have to only be on Oct. 31.
Lorelei Baroldy (@fallenlore) decided to transform herself into different creatures everyday for the whole month of October, because in her mind, Halloween is just a state of mind.
She started her mythical creatures theme by sharing her first look on Facebook. The theme stemmed from a suggestion from a friend and so far she’s been creatures like Medusa, a sea-mermaid and a minotaur.
But, makeup isn’t her full time job. The artist is actually a pastry chef by day. As a kid, she had an interest in makeup, but the passion grew after taking a course in college.
“I do it because I think it’s a lot of fun,” she told Mashable. “I like the creativity of it, and it gives me something to do outside of the norm.”
However, this isn’t the first time she’s done a challenge like this. In 2013, she decided to do Disney villains like Scar, Queen of Hearts, and Hades.
It only takes Baroldy one to two hours, but the end result looks difficult to emulate. However, the inspiration for her creature choice remains unpredictable.
“I pick the creature the day of. Usually right as I’m pulling out my make-up,” she told Mashable. “I’ll use photos from online of the creatures as references.”
While Baroldy continues to surprise us with a different look everyday, it’ll leave us wondering what’s her big plan for Halloween.
