I posted some shots of Rhowan back in November when she first tried sugar skull makeup (here, here and here) but we thought we'd try it again today: a) because I think it makes for a good portrait, and b) because I wanted to shoot some more images using the 56mm lens on the XT-1. We shot a whole bunch of stuff and ended up with two that we both like: this one, and a colour version that I'll post tomorrow. We both prefer tomorrow's shot.
