We are Grounders

Last week on Netflix I finished Season two of "The 100", a show that takes place 97 years after the apocalypse where everyone that they know of lives in space. The 100 kids over the age of 18, who have committed some sort of crime, are sent down to Earth to find out it if is inhabitable since they are unsure if they can withstand the radiation levels. A few episodes in, the kids find out they are not alone and meet the Grounders, who are people who have made this land their home.
They wear war paint like this and parts of their outfits are salvaged, such as shoulder pads made from tires. I did my own hair and make up (which is an attempt to mirror Commander Lexa's) to surprise Michael when he got home from his friend's house, but he took the pictures for me. His reaction to my make up was "Wowsers!" He likes dark make up like this. I think it looks pretty awesome too! Plus it was fun to do and only took a few minutes. It would have been more accurate if I had some cuts and dirt on my face since they are always fighting to stay alive. And having two other Grounders in the pictures with me would have been even more fun.
I didn't have much else in my wardrobe that seemed like something they would wear, so as usual, Blood Window costume to the rescue (vest and arm piece)! My favorite part is the red cape, which is actually my long pioneer skirt that Michael hooked onto the back! I wanted to go for a walk today since neither of us had to work, but alas, Orlando is still a humid 92 degrees in November.
We found a path along one of the paved trails we walk and were out there for about 10 minutes until Michael could no longer stand the mosquitoes. At one point he even ripped his button down shirt open because he could feel one biting him. That was amusing to watch. This last picture of mushrooms on the tree was taken by me since I miss my macro photos. I need to take more, even if it's just around our complex.
