A real Halloween nightmare! Mother is left mortified after jet black eyebrows she drew on her baby son for Addams Family fancy dress won’t come off a WEEK later

  • Chloe Sullivan, 30, from Snodland, drew eyebrows with eyeliner on her baby  
  • Whole family dressed up as the Addams Family for a Halloween party last week
  • Chloe as Morticia, partner as Gomez and children as Pugsey and Wednedday 
  • Put eyebrows on Vinnie, six-months, with magnetic eyeliner so wouldn’t smudge
  • But she was horrified when the makeup would budge for a week after the party 

A mum was left mortified after scrawling jet-black eyebrows on her baby’s face for a fancy dress party – only for him to be still sporting one a week later as it refuses to scrub off.

Chloe Sullivan, 30, from Snodland, Kent, proudly rocked up to her brother’s Halloween party last Friday with her entire household dressed as the Addams Family.

She covered herself in white face paint and donned a black wig to transform herself into Morticia, her partner Liam Dowd, 26, dressed as Gomez and their oldest daughter Esme Hamilton, seven, went as Wednesday.

The office and laboratory manager then dressed up two-year-old Aida Dowd as Pugsley and whipped out her magnetic eyeliner to draw eyebrows on six-month-old Vinnie – safe in the knowledge he wouldn’t be able to rub them off that night.

But the next day as she was trying to scrub the hilarious-looking eyebrows off the tot, she was horrified to find they wouldn’t budge, with the eyeliner clinging to his ‘delicate, fine’ baby hair.  

In a hilarious TikTok video, which has racked up more than 70,000 likes and 524,000 views, Chloe explains she is still trying to free little Vinnie of his striking new look.

Chloe Sullivan, 30, from Snodland, Kent, drew eyebrows and a mustache on her six-month-old son Vinne’s face for Addam’s family fancy dress, but discovered that the brows wouldn’t budge 

Chloe Sullivan, 30, from Snodland, Kent, proudly rocked up to her brother’s Halloween party last Friday with her entire household dressed as the Addams Family. But she was mortified to find out the eyebrows she drew on her son’s face with eyeliner couldn’t be erased for a week

Chloe said: ‘I just can’t believe it. In my head I really thought I was doing something clever by putting it on with something he couldn’t rub off.

‘A week on, we’ve still got half an eyebrow.

‘My brother and his wife had a Halloween party on Friday. On the Saturday morning, half of his ‘tache had come off in his sleep. I wiped his moustache off and then tried an eyebrow but it wasn’t budging. It was like glue all stuck in his eyebrow.

‘I thought I’d give him a bath and it’d be off by that evening but it wasn’t. Then on the Sunday it still wasn’t coming off.

Despite numerous baths and scrubbing, Vinnie’s eyebrows are still refusing to budge, but he doesn’t look to upset about his new look

‘I covered him in baby oil, baby lotion. I took so many pictures.

‘Luckily, he doesn’t go to childcare and I would have had to go do the school run, but because I unfortunately caught covid, the school are picking Esme up.

‘I’d have definitely got funny looks if I’d have taken him to school with his eyebrows like that.’

Chloe had already been around the family with her magnetic eyeliner, which she uses to stick on false lashes, when she finally got to Vinnie.

Plant operator Liam had used it to draw on a moustache while Esme had some on her eyes as eyeliner.

While their faces were easily cleaned, little Vinnie is still branded with them as Chloe frantically works through her bathroom cabinet to find things to restore his blond brows.

Chloe said: ‘My brother said ‘if you come, you have to dress up’. We wondered what we could go as as a whole family and decided on the Addams Family.

‘Not a lot of people seem to know but the Addams Family have the little baby Pubert in the second film.

‘We had Pugsley, my eldest daughter went as Wednesday then we dressed Vinnie, my youngest, as Pubert.

The mother shared the story on TikTok where she revealed she tried everything to scrub off the eyebrows, to no avail 

‘Esme just had white face paint and the black eyeliner on, but it was just on her eyelids so it came off.

‘I then sprayed her hair black. I didn’t put any makeup on Aida because she can’t sit still for a second.

‘I didn’t want to use my eyebrow pencil because Vinnie could just rub it off and it could go all over his baby grow.

‘I used my magnetic eyeliner because I use it all the time and it comes off really easily off my eyelids.

‘Magnetic eyeliner is put on like an eyeliner then the eyelashes have tiny magnetics. You stick the eyelash on and it goes on straight away.

After all of Chloe’s efforts, she was able to scrub off one of the eyebrows, but the other remained  

After the party, half Vinnie’s mustache was gone without a problem, and Chloe decided to wait until the morning to take it off 

The motther said she tried to get the eyebrows, pictured, off for days by using water, oils and other techniques, but without any luck 

‘For days I was trying to get it off and he still has half of one on now. It’s stuck to his hair – I feel awful.

‘I tried a cradle cap exfoliator and absolutely nothing has budged it.

‘Liam was like ‘what the hell have you done?’ He’d put it on his moustache and had to really scrub it to get it off.

‘Where his stubble was coarser, it just came off, whereas Vinnie’s hair is so delicate and fine.

‘In the end, I managed to get one off. I soaked him in baby oil while he was asleep and picked it.

‘It was bright red so I thought “oh gosh, I can’t do the other one yet”.

‘I left it overnight and now he’s got half of one left so I’ll finish that when he goes to sleep.’

Despite the outfit malfunction, Chloe claims everyone commented on their creative outfits on the night while TikTok users all laughed at her video showing Vinnie’s new look.

Chloe said: ‘When we went to the party, everyone commented and said we looked really good in it.

‘We were the only ones to go as a family. Some people went with their little ones as vampires and they dressed as Day of the Dead and things.

‘It’s abnormal for me to be very white because I tan all the time. My sister-in-law said she couldn’t wait to see me as Morticia because I don’t think I’ve been as pale in my life.

‘Online, everyone thinks it’s hilarious and love it. They all see the funny side to it.

‘Next year it’s bin bags all round, no make-up and just masks.’
