Viva Mexico!

I painted at what was probably one of the cooler events of my career on Wednesday, together with my friend, Emilie, who I hired for the event.  It was the Mexican National Team vs. Ivory Coast soccer game at the Meadowlands in East Rutherford, NJ.  We were representing Doritos & Cheetos, and painting in their area while they handed out free samples of their new flavors to the patrons for four hours before the game.

Speaking of which, if you like spicy - really spicy - be sure to try the new flavors when they come out.  My mouth was on fire!

Anyway, four hours of nonstop face painting, and it was a mad scene!  We had awesome line managers, which helped immensely, and the patrons were really great, but wow, that was a lot of fast painting.  We had to move very quickly to get as many people as possible done, but one of the line managers was kind enough to take a few photos.

My most requested design was probably a full face Mexican flag.

Second most popular was probably cheek art flags in rectangle or heart shapes.

And of course, there were the flaming soccer balls.  Can't go wrong with a flaming soccer ball.

Especially since I'd done a freehand flaming soccer ball glitter tat on my arm for the occasion!

Now next time they have to hire me to do temp tattoos!
