    What kind of cigar is that? If I smoke (which is rare and usually only if I’ve been drinking….which is rare)…it is swisher sweets.

    Just love the creativity make-up allows! Very cool looking! Hope you have a great time. What exactly is this event – I am not familiar.

    Ok, so this make up job ended up getting last minute embelishments, I added a spiderweb around the outside edge of my right eye, and 2 lines going to a point (about a half an inch to an inch long) from the inner corner of my eyes down, lol. I also gothed out my friend Scott for it as well. I’ll have pictures soon. The event was Prog Power USA, the main band I went to see was Kamelot. OMG!!! I was front and center, it was AWESOME!!! I am SO so sore from headbanging and arm thrusting, but OMG! So worth it!!!

  20. Vampire Chickie Ravin
    Vampire Chickie Ravin says:

    wow, just realized I didn’t get a picture where you can see the spiderwed, meh…I was all wacked out hot and sweaty from head banging in these pictures, the one of just me was during an intermission, and the 2 of my friend Scott and I were after the concert, heh, I was more than ready to crash and burn, lol

    Vampire Chickie Ravin says:

    Oh in answer to the cigar question, it’s a Cheyenne, full flavor, 100′s. Here in Anderson S.C. they run about $11 or $12 a carton. They have cherry, regular, grape, vanilla, exotic berry (another fave of mine) and extreme menthol.

    Vampire Chickie Ravin says:

    oh…and peach…the cigar in the picture is a peach…duh…lol

    JulzJewlz says:

    LOL!! thanks! I’ll have to see if I can find some. I have a couple of times a year that I celebrate my son’s life. (He passed away 8 years ago) And that celebration usually includes cigars.
    Looks like you had a great time. Your makeup was perfect! Thanks for sharing your pics!
