I'm not fond of 3-digit temperatures. If I was, I'd go live in Arizona.
Even in the dark of night, at 1 a.m., it was near 90 degrees. So you get the idea. And where was I from 5:30 - 830 p.m.? With 4 fellow crazy face painters, at the Bergen County Zoo in Van Saun Park in Paramus. Face painting. Outdoors. In that heat.
Crazier than we were may have been the people who got painted. More power to 'em! Because of them, I got to do some fun stuff. Like these butterflies.
Mike Tyson's tribal... which is probably a tad easier with a shaved head.
And yeah, I looked it up. All hail the smartphone! Speaking of the smartphone and finding images, I got my first toucan request and decided to give it a go once I found one online.
Good job, if I do say so myself!
I was surprised at the people who wanted full face designs in the heat, but if they were willing, I was willing. Hence the crocodile and ladybug.
It was kind of fun to make the ladybug smile when she smiled, and it was a surprising popular design. Another face painting "trick" is to make parts disappear. This boy was really happy at the snake apparently slithering through his hair.
Unsurprisingly, we did get a lot of arm art.
The best design of the day, though? Or at least the funniest... check out these guys.
