The Daidogei or Shizuoka Daidogei World Cup, that is Street performers festival is taking place this year Friday October 31st~October 1st.
On Friday i wasn’t in Shizuoka City and the rain ruined Saturday completely but I could finally meet again some famous face painting artists yesterday!
Lucie Brouillard of Calgary, Canada, Body Painting World Champion 2010 and Face Painting World Champion 2009!
What is that little boy going to look like?
Here you are!
Halloween is just gone past!
Lucie had some interesting comments on Japan and face painting in Japan.
Notwithstanding the safety and top-class hygiene of the country, the Japanese people show enormous respect to artists and try to communicate with them, whereas in her country they are ignored.
The Japanese kids are probably the easiest to work on in the World as they do ot move at all when beiing painted.
They also have a thick and smooth skin easy to work on.
Lucie’s favorite of the day!
Liz Mortlock is the other a super-talented, also from Calgary, Canada, who has become the main feature in the streets of Shizuoka Ciy with Lucie!
Always laughing and constantly complimenting her charges!
That kid is thinking about a second mother!
Or maybe a new grandmother!
Sister and brother!
I don’t have to tell that rain or shine , the two artists have already been working like mad for two days, and today, Monday 3rd, promising to be shiny and hot, they’ll be exhausted at the end of the day!
Will check on them today again!
