Local stylist Darcy Camden pulled all of our outfits from Seattle Goodwill stores, and Tiffany Lowry was giving live demos for makeup during the event. Here’s the aftermath of our looks:

Before going into detail for the transformation from princess to zombie, wanted to point out that all of the bloggers that participated in this event went in blindly without knowing what we would be dressed up as. This couldn’t have worked out more perfectly for me because Snow White has always been my favourite Disney Princess (ok, I might be a teeny bit biased because it was hard to find a princess with black hair to dress up as when growing up). As proof, here’s a photo from my recent visit to Disneyland with Ms Snow White in the flesh, teaching me how to “princess pose”!
It was so awesome to see Tiffany work her magic! I was originally done up with dramatic princess makeup– bright pink cheeks, glittery eye shadow, and beautiful false lashes. She did a live demo to the crowd where she brushed white powder on my face and neckline, added black eye shadow to my lids, sides of my temples, and mouth, before splattering fake blood everywhere. She also took a full sheet of temporary scar tattoos and put them right on my chest, which looked so real when combined with the fake blood! I absolutely loved her creativity for showcasing a 2-in-1 costume idea.
