Voodoo 2016 Day 2

Name: Michael and Abigail
Costume: Scarecrow Couple
Blurb: “Honestly, my girlfriend tried to search for costumes that my dreadlocks would look good with. We though a scarecrow would be pretty simple and we could have some fun with it. So, we just spent some time at home and did some DIY. We’re just excited to be here and we’re having fun.”

Voodoo 2016 Day 2

Name: Kara
Costume: Deer Makeup
Blurb: “I just really love makeup, and I wanted to experiment with it for my Halloween costume. I used some of my new MAC and NYX products. I also wanted to just do something simple and fun. I student teach, so I can’t wear anything on actual Halloween, so wanted to make a point to do something for Voodoo

Voodoo 2016 Day 2

Name: “The Bride”
Costume: Beatrix Kiddo/The Bride
Blurb: “I just love Kill Bill and I love Quentin Tarantino. I actually recently rewatched the film after getting this inspiration. And she’s a really strong female figure so I feel like I should come here and represent.”

Name: Lauren and Mick
Costume: Voodoo Priest and Priestess
Blurb: HIM: “Well, we just picked a Voodoo theme for the Voodoo festival. It’s kind of a thing we always do and this is the first time we’ve been to the festival.” HER: “Yeah, and this is my first time in New Orleans. I’m from Jacksonville Florida. Plus, we just love Halloween. It’s our favorite holiday, so we like to go all out.”
