Orly Faya

Last week we spent Halloween in North Carolina where almost everybody, kids and adults alike, enjoy getting into the spirit of the night.

Our little family went out as the characters/emotions from Inside Out, the movie in which Pixar shows us the emotions that live within each person, driving our speech, actions and decisions. Here's the trailer:

These are the five emotions from the movie: 

Joy  Joy  Disgust Disgust Fear Fear

Anger anger  Sadness Sadness

Perfect! One for each of us to be for Halloween. There might have been a little face painting involved!

Don't worry, it all washed off easily. 

When I came across something on social media about Orly Faya, an Australian body painter/photographer, I knew I had to share it here. This takes face and body painting to a completely different level.

Inspired by nature, Faya paints people into landscapes and lighting, with astonishing results. Here's her intro for her Gaia Project which is being crowd-funded.
