How to Do Face Painting - Hulk and Pirate

Yesterday, my sons had their Halloween party in school. They went as a pirate and as the Incredible Hulk.

I am not really a professional face painter. So, what I just do is look for face painted images online and try to imitate them.

For face painting the simple pirate look,

  • I put the scar on the lower left cheek.
  • I put a thick eyebrow over the right eye.
  • Lastly, I added the mustache (You could add a beard too).
Then, I just looked for a big handkerchief and tied it over his head. He wore a white tops/satin polo and satin (gold, any color would do) pants then I tied a sash around the waist.

For face painting the hulk look,

  • I put green face paint on the left side of the face. (It was actually much easier to put green eye shadow all over the face than using the face paint)
  • I drew a dividing stitch on the center of the face.
  • I drew the mouth with big white teeth.
  • I put thick eye brows over the left eye. Then added some black lines. 
  • (Initially, I was going to leave the other half of the face unpainted to emphasize that the Hulk has two identities but then I also put light green face paint on the other half.)
  • I also put some green paint on the neck and hands.

For the costume,
I looked for green long sleeves. Then, I looked for an old shirt and cut off triangles on the sleeves and the bottom of the shirt. He also wore green (should have been purple) 3/4 pants. I didn't put tears on the pants, (sayang kasi) it's still brand new.

Here are some other face paints I took pictures of during the Halloween party in my kids school.

Which Brand of Electric Fan Do You Recommend?

It’s really hot now and it’s so untimely that one of our fans gave up on us. We only have 2 working. Actually, since we came here in the Philippines 2 years ago, we’ve already bought 6 fans and I’m not satisfied with how they worked for only a short time. We bought 2 Standard industrial stand fans, one broke in less than a year while the other one is still working. We bought 1 Union desk fan and this one lasted 2 years. Then, we bought 1 Dowell stand fan because of a sale but then it was defective within one month. We brought it to their service center, they got it fixed but then the entire head (with the fan blade) of the fan flew off (nasira ang hinang).

What's the Best Shampoo For Getting Rid of Head Lice?

When my family was staying in the Middle East, my daughters had no problems with head lice or “kuto.” A head louse (lice, plural) is a six-legged parasite that feeds on blood in the human head. Lice do not jump or fly, but crawl only. They do not carry any disease, but they suck blood and cause itchiness. Here’s a photo showing the life cycle of head lice. The life cycle of head lice.

Sisa Monologue Script in English

Last second quarter, my Grade 8 daughter's English class teacher asked them to present a Monologue in class. The teacher asked the students to choose a character on whom they want to base their monologue. My daughter chose Sisa of Noli Me Tangere. The problem is that most of the Sisa monologue Script that can be found on the internet are in Filipino or Tagalog. You can't find one in English. Well, there's one but it was very, very short, just one paragraph, I think. And so, we had no choice but to make a Sisa monologue script in English. It's not required for the students to make their own script and so I helped my daughter produce one. I just looked up a good Sisa script in Tagalog online and translated it. Thank God for Google Translate as it helped me do 50% of the work. The Google translation was not 100% accurate, so I still had to edit it. Here's the final script (515 words), which I want to share with you (and other people looking for Sisa monologue
