Burton Baby!

I didn’t lose my mind and permanently change into a giant oddly morbid stick figure … or did I?! Complete inspiration goes to the Burtonesque Photo Competition.  I have to admit at first I wasn’t really “into” doing this competition.

Well, that was until my partner (in crime and otherwise) Express had created the shape for me. I’m a huge Burton fan – love the movies and secretly fangurl the slightly insane genius that is Tim Burton.

May 7So why wasn’t into the competition? To be completely honest, I have no *insert curse here* clue. Maybe I needed a nudge to get started. The shape was exactly that stating point.  Thinking back on some of my fav Burton films like Edward Scissorhands and Beetle Juice, the makeup nearly leaped out of my inventory.

Keeping in theme of Beetle Juice, striped pants were in order to accentuate the long Nightmare Before Christmas legs. Everything else really just fell into place.  Really, all the textures, tones, jewelry all help tell the story.

Just like his movies, its all the little elements when added together make such an unforgettable impact.  The outfit in its entirety flows well … and eventho it is for the Buronesque Competition, its still pretty darn good.

If you see me out in this shape and look, please don’t stare. I’m self conscious … but really like the outfit! Now I know how all those “giant” shaped folks feel … perhaps we all are just little?!

Check out the competition – see the flickr group for the complete rules. the pics so far are very cool … I can’t wait to see the others. The contest ends later this month, but don’t wait – enter today! I should get crackin’ on my entry.

This is my take on Burton … now if I can only find a giant peach.
