People: What are couples without kids doing during this quarantine?
Like everyone else on the planet, we binged watched the Netflix's docu-series, "Tiger King" the day it was released. We finished it in one sitting. It was a train wreck we couldn't turn away from, and to be honest, didn't really want to. We were introduced in to a world and to people we didn't know existed.
If this was a scripted series I would've said, "Wow. They really jumped the shark," so many times. It's already enough that it's a dude with a mullet that owns 227 tigers, but no, he's also gay... and a polygamist... and a country "singer"... and runs for president, and then runs for governor, and then one of his husbands accidentally kills himself (which is really sad), and then he's arrested for hiring someone to murder his arch nemesis, Carole (f word) Baskins, who only wears bohemian cat print clothing- Oh ya, and SHE is being accused of feeding her 2nd husband to tigers... THIS IS REAL LIFE! I can't. And to think, all this came about when a man, Rick started investigating illegal snake sales.
Still trying to process what we watched gave me an idea. "What if we dress up like Tiger King and take some photos in our backyard?" I mean, Cody just found his leather pants in the attic... I think my great aunt's leather fringe coat would fit him... My "Atomic Blonde" wig can be converted in to a mullet... We have cat costumes for the dogs from past Halloweens... I bet I can do tiger makeup...
I was able to achieve my tiger makeup by using Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour kit, some leftover black eyeliner, a dash of gold glitter eye shadow, and old white face paint from a costume years ago. I started with my nose, outlining the tip in black and the contouring the shadow to make it appear wider. I laid down the white base using a thick bristle paint brush to achieve the look of fur. After that dried, I started dashing on that black fur with a smaller paint brush. My pink nose is thanks to lipstick & lip gloss! I literally through this together in under 30 minutes.
I posted our lovely photos on our Instagram that night and woke up to a text from my mom alerting me that it was on the Daily Mail. After a few quick Google searches I found our photo on 4 more sites... My mom is so proud. (Yes, I woke up at 11 am).
Have you seen Tiger King? What are your thoughts? Do you think Carole killed her husband (the only acceptable answer is yes)? Who should Cody & I portray next? Tell us EVERYTHING!
*NOTE: We do NOT in any way condone the mistreatment of animals. Our enjoyment for this series is purely from how stark contrast to our life it is (i.e. old Walmart meat).
