52 Weeks of Disney: Week #1: Pinocchio Make Up Look
Hey everyone! If you're a follower of my Instagram you will know this year I have set myself a new challenge. I have to admit, I was feeling a bit like my make up looks were becoming samey and I was finding it hard to get inspired especially after hurting my wrist. But then an idea came to me which I thought would be brilliant to challenge me as an artist as well as being able to carry on posting one of the series' that you all seem to really enjoy.
So, the idea is that there are currently 52 Disney Animated Classic movies available to buy and 52 weeks in a year.
My challenge is that I would watch one movie a week and then do a look based on the film for the rest of the year.
This means I would be able to finish off my DVD collection (of which I only have a few left!) and do a look which should hopefully challenge me, inspire me and encourage me to use different colour palettes as Disney has some very colourful characters indeed! I'm pretty excited and for the first week of the year I started with one of the oldest Disney movies and the second Disney Animated Classic (while I wait for the first to arrive!) and that is Pinocchio!
As you can probably tell I was mostly inspired by Pinocchios colour scheme of red, yellow and blue but the red went a bit too orange for my liking. The result of too much blending I think but I asked a few people and they all said it still looked very representative of Pinocchio and I agree! I don't know if anyone else feels like this, but Pinocchio scared me senseless as a child! I used to hate the Pleasure Island bit when the little boys get turned into donkeys and "Monstro" is just the scariest whale!
Will anyone else be joining me for this challenge? I'd love it if some more people got involved! Its gonna be a lot of work but also very rewarding and fun! I hope you enjoy my posts as much as I enjoy creating them!
