Re "face like a kite."

Kites were traditionally white, as well as vaguely face-shaped, with the points of the cross-strut suggesting cheekbones.(Conjecture: some may even have had humorous faces on them).

So "face just like kite" would also mean "deathly white" and possibly also like a caricature.

That's the sense I make of it.
