Happy Halloween 2020! Continuing on from our Halloween 2019 tradition, I wanted to share some of my favorite make up and cosplay artists from Instagram. Each person has given permission to use their photo and I included a link to each of their profiles. Please feel free to support all of them with a follow or some likes, and these are in no particular order. I love the varying hair styles, colors, and techniques that each person used, they all make for vastly different variations, but they are all beautiful and unique.
A big irayo (thank you) to everyone for sharing their talented pictures with me. Something that is awesome about the Na’vi in Avatar is they are all blue, they don’t have to deal with some of the things we do. With that said the ladies who’ve created these amazing makeup designs aren’t blue, they have all different colors of skin and come from all around the globe, and some have personally dealt with racism. There was a post on @diane.mi Instagram that really hit me. The caption was this, “Growing up in predominately white schools, I was always mocked for everything linked to my korean heritage.” That’s heart breaking to read as a white person. I don’t know Diane personally but from the tiny bit I’ve spoken to her I can tell she’s a lovely person. Take a moment and think about what you say, how it potentially impacts others for years after you said it. Let’s be positive, lift each other up, love one another. That also can help impact peoples lives in a positive way for years to come. You never know what people are dealing with behind the scenes. I hope everyone has a fun and safe Halloween 2020 and you get to enjoy it with friends and family.
