After the costume was finished the hard part began. The makeup. I had never done full body paint before but I was not going to let that deter me. After multiple paint tests and hours of mixing colors, we finally got the mint green hue of Frankie's skin.
On the day of the party, I was so excited. It took about 3.5 hours to get into full costume and makeup, but it was so worth it. When Ariel and her friends opened the door they were awestruck. They were so excited they keep me from closing the door behind me with all kinds of questions about school and my friends! After giving Ariel her certificate and gift, I told them all about my friends and classes and family. We then played a game and had a fabulous fashion show. It was absolutely wonderful! I don't think I wanted to leave! After spending a half hour I had to go and visit some more friends but I am so happy that I got the opportunity to make another exciting character come to life!
