Well as I was inspired by Baron Samedi, which is a sort of diety/spirit in voodoo culture, that sounds plausible! :D
Thank you!

My only concern is the Baron isn't really evil - he's a Loa of the dead, but not of the evil-dead.

I'd like to claim "evil" is just a word, as much as "normal", neither of which has much basis in this world.

So Baron Samedi is a voodoo guy? I couldn't quite understand from the previous comments. :/
How much time did it take for you to do the makeup?! I give up after doing something for more than 5 minutes .__. Did you use normal face makeup, or did you use something special?
Everything about this is just awesomely awesome! The makeup (obviously ;) ), your expression (priceless and wonderful), the pose, the clothes. Seriously, stop being so crazeh awesomeh! >D

Yes, he's part of the Loa, the saturday lord. I'm a bit unsure on if he's restricted to like, new orleans voodoo or if he's in other places too though, I'm looking it up.
Like, ten-fifteen minutes I think, just some like, old theatre make up I stole from my step dad. Never use old ones by the way, I noticed they get a lot harder to get away with time XD
I think I'm mostly crazy, and need to work on the awesome, really XD Thanks though :D

You are very welcome :); "La Catrina" is very special for us; she like the jokes...eat,smokes, drink and play cards...she puts our lifes in a funny rhyme and when the time is near, she dance with you until you fall sleep and awake in the reign of Aztlan :blackrose:
