I’m starting a new feature, oh-so-cleverly titled “Vintage Ad of the Week”, where I will highlight a vintage advertisement that I either love, hate…or am just flat-out confused by. For this week’s pick, I am highlighting a Revlon Cosmetics ad. I love the classic shades of vintage makeup, and this ad caught my eye.
I like the simplicity of the ad, with the open-space being a soft shade of pink, and the placement of the man and the woman drawing your eyes directly to the brand. And the tagline? “Not a prissy pink…not a sissy pink…” along with the pink goblet, nail polish, lipstick, jewelry, and gown. Normally I would find such usage of color to be overkill, but I thought this was a lovely ad.
I also am adding a special treat for you: Ashleeta at PinUpGirlStyle posted this handy little chart of classic Revlon shades that are still made today.
I think my favorite is “Cherries in the Snow” – I remember that my mommy used to wear that when I was little, and yes, there were several times that I got into her purse and tried to apply it, unsuccessfully. One of those times was right before a dentist appointment. No one was amused, nor impressed, haha! I also am a fan of “Certainly Red”. The “Blase Apricot” is also nice, but I don’t think that it would compliment my complexion well.
What do you think about these classic shades? Would you wear any of them? Do you own any of them!

I was delighted when KSEE 24′s “We Are Fresno” asked me to come by the studio last week, on October 18th, to talk about last Friday’s showing of “Dead Alive” at “B-Movies & Brews!” in Fresno!

I was super excited when CBS47 asked me to return to their morning show earlier this month to talk about my event, the Visalia Zombie Ball & Crawl, that took place on October 6th, 2012. Always a fun time with Zara and the rest of the CBS47 crew! Be sure to watch for me on the show next Thursday, October 25th, where I will be demonstrating how to make some of my most popular ghoulish creations, live on the show!Past Events & Appearances
From Visalia Times-Delta, October 4, 2012 Written by Juan Villa It always seems to be Halloween at the home of Kaci Hansen, and she wouldn’t have it any other way. The Visalia resident with a love for all things horror admits she tries to integrate that love in as many ways as possible into her daily life. The life-size Frankenstein and zombie always on display inside her home should be enough to prove that. Read the rest of this entry »Past Events & Appearances
