Ready for some Old Hollywood makeup? I’ve been into the style ever since I dressed as Marilyn Monroe for Halloween (admittedly I did not pull it off as well as Debby Ryan did Marilyn).
This year, I went as Dottie Hinson (the spitfire girl ballplayer played by Geena Davis from A League of Their Own) since I was determined to stay a redhead for Halloween. Dottie’s makeup is Old Hollywood, but a little rougher and dirtier since she likes to play in the clay. I kicked her simpler look up a notch cause, well, I’m not playing baseball outside.
Here’s the video with my usual touch of humor and complete lack of class:
I’m a redhead, and I like it that way. I’m not going to don a fake, cheap, sweaty wig for a Halloween costume when I like my hair underneath better anyway. (“But Cailin, Halloween costumes aren’t about your identity, they’re about losing yourself!” Blah blah blah, shut up. I like being a redhead, dammit.)
Star of the Disney Channel’s uber-successful “Jessie”, Debby Ryan is near and dear to my heart as a fellow redhead (as is her Disney cohort Bella Thorne!). She dressed up as a rather funny version of Marilyn Monroe in a Halloween episode of Jessie entitled “Ghost Bummers”, but the Instagram selfie she posted (right) was much more beautiful than funny.
