**Dead Cosmetic Workshop: Violet Powder — Sunday, July 8th at 6pm at GEARCon**


I’m so happy to be running a workshop this Sunday evening (6pm) at this year’s GEARCon!! Thanks to all the event runners and organizers who let me sign up at the last minute.¬†Here is some copy:
Resurrect another Dead Cosmetic with Kim Damio of Portland Black Lipstick Company. This year, we’ll be re-creating a mid-Victorian era violet-scented powder and (as usual) attendees will be able to take a small quantity home free of charge. Learn why violet powder contains noactual violets!! Let the story of the violet powder poisonings of 1878 chill your blood!! Hear the melancholy story of Violet Powder’s descent into modern day obscurity!! Join us and smell fabulous!!
Here is a link to the event for all the particulars:

Portlandia is full of *Weirdos*…and we love it <3 <3

If you’ve been watching season 7 of Portlandia, then you might have seen some of our makeup!! Here is a picture of Carrie and Fred during the filming of episode 1, “The Storytellers.” I’ve always wanted the Weirdo characters to wear my Vegan Corpse Paint and Black Lipstick, so thanks so much to makeup artists Terrie Lodge and Jessica Needham for making my dreams come true!!! To watch the scene they are prepping in the photo, just click on the picture and you’ll be directed to IFC’s youtube clip of “Weirdos Go Shopping.”
