"Girl with the Parasol" & New Make-Up Palette!

Over the last few weeks I've been working in cooperation with the danish National Museum on their new exhibition "The Girl with the Parasol", where I've been asked to administrate the 'living picture' part, which is - if you haven't already guessed - cosplay.
We launched the exhibition friday and opened to the public today, and I've been hostessing with a few other cosplayers, which was a very new experience, but very exciting and I enjoyed it a lot.

If you live in Denmark, or are visiting over the next 5 months, you should definitely have a look at the amazing art that is displayed, and I personally and other costume makers will be there hostessing and creating events during some weekends!

Friday after we got off, me and Mie went to get some dinner and then had a quick look-see around town, and since I really wanted to oogle some Urban Decay we went to look at make-up.
Passing through Sephora, which I've done a few times, always just rushed before, because I couldn't deal with the prices, but yesterday we took our time and I found a palette that I really really liked.

I've been itching to get some shiny eye shadows, since most of the once I own are matte, and shimmer just gives a much more alive effect when you do costume make-up (and party make-up for that matter!)

I found this "Front Cover" Hot Shades Cool Colours, and I just knew I had to take it home after I'd tried some. All the colors I could use and with just the right amount of shine to them, yeeesss.

My two favorite colors are definitely Flash and Spark, I can't wait to play with this!

The packaging itself is definitely theme based, and something I think Front Cover does a lot, I'm not really for or against it, but I do feel that the bottom layer could easily break off when opened D:

Also as you can see my hair is now a nice shade of pastel blue and I'm really really satisfied with it at the moment, it'll be hell to keep, but I do actually feel a little more mature with this - the lipstick helps too of course :P
