NOW WITH EVEN MORE DESCRIPTIONS,
SATISFYING YOUR DAILY REQUIREMENTS OF VITAMIN BS!! JK...please read
all self-taught application...questions? just ask!!
on to the pics
got this prosthetic from "the scream team" along with the ears, look them up, they're probably the best quality and variety
on the market for general consumers. attached with an adhesive called "spirit gum" it's been used for years, although
it releases with alcohol (drinking will make this fall off sooner...see bite pic mouth) the adhesive will naturally loosen with sweat,
i'd recommend carrying extra for touch ups...or for the brave, there is a product called prosaide, it's a former medical adhesive,
now used widely in special effects, but remeber the solvent to remove it!!! this will take your skin with it if not...
stage 2 blending
coarse bristled sponge/liquid latex...when purchasing makeup kits you'll see a small black wire-like sponge, thats it! lightly blend
a thin layer, then hairdryer!! then another layer, etc...till the edges are gone. i then apply a pat of baby powder to see if
it really blended well, it takes the sheen off the latex and dries the top layer further for makeup application. if not blended continue
process, but make sure to dry between layers COMPLETELY, as it will pull up all the work you've done.
stage 3 paint
this is a multi layered process, with many options
my choice was "cinema secrets" has a palette of creme colors, make sure though, when using foam latex appliances tat you
do not use petroleum bases makeups, they will deteriorate the foam. also you can google "makeup color wheels" they should
come up with results like injury wheel, monster wheel, pain wheel, clown wheel, etc...
here we are with wig and costume...i think i got the coat from lip service or slash n burn
me and the devil with a blue dress, pretty creative
this one won me first place...twice!
2003 costume didn't enter anywhere, should have i think
prosthetic purchased from www.makeupmania.com great company...ask for eva!!! she's the best, and so helpful. she did some makeup on the movie se7en as well as suicide kings, star trek, and other fantastic projects.
same application but with the addition of hair laying...(very complex instruction pm me for those) costume was hand
constructed purchasing various plastic halloween pieces, painting, cutting, sewing, etc
example: the shoulder guards were cut from two plastic roman helmets, then spraypainted.
what do you think???
this year i think i'm going to go to fantasyfest in key west and compete
