Trial: Snake Bite

Some squirrely asked me to do her make up for a jungle themed party this Sunday. She’s looking for sort of a sexy snake!
Did a quick trial run – had to improvise for the scales though.
So that created sort of a leprous snake then.. D’:

Celeb Halloween Costumes

Checking out cheesy dance shows and celeb outfits make me all warm and fuzzy. There – I said it. But it gets too good when crazy stuff is involved!
Enter my favorites this yearrr!

Double, double, toll and trouble,
Fire burn and cauldron bubble.
Eye of newt, toe of frog,
Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
Adder’s fork and blind worm’s sting,
Lizard’s leg and howlet’s wing.
Halloween Skeleton
Halloween Skeleton
Halloween Skeleton
So the skeleton did end up with a more ghoulish jaw!
This totally innocent puppet pretty much lives right around the corner and games! PC, card and board games to be exact. Not to mention she’s a warlock in WoW as well!
Seems like we share a taste for dark spells and minions.
All this time i’d been thinking there were no people in this part of the country with the same interests – this just made my year.
Positively glowing!
Stabbing, jabbing and ready to party.
And the wound turned out to be an unzipped face!
This is the best make up practice i’ve had in a long time, but the most exciting part was that I actually got to meet two people that are so freaking similar to me and Hippo!
Mister skeleton’s a blacksmith and actually makes his own, operating, plate (!) gear – I got to fiddle around with some of it. Very cool.
Argh doing this makes me want to take a special effects course so bad – but the moolah, darn moolah!
Have an otherwordly Halloween and a great November first!

Halloween Playtime: Skeleton Attempt

Instant heart attack when someone asked me to turn them into a skeleton for Halloween – I hadn’t tried that yet! Ever!
(Read: too scared)
So um since it’s almost the 31th I figured I should practice! Got home, had lunch and attempted this thing.
Kudos to Hippo for picking me out of the bathroom and throwing me into this fabulously creepy environment.
Think i’ll try a different jaw tomorrow, right now it looks like i’m a skeleton holding a doggy bone.
(Aw wouldn’t that be a fun Tokidoki look though!)
Hardest make up situation i’ve ever attempted.

Easy Bullet Wound

Greetings Earthling!
Everyone’s sick around here and apparently those pro stealth moves from last week didn’t enable me to avoid them either. Nevertheless I really wanted to film a small video on how to do an easy bullet wound for Halloween – or you know, any other day you feel the need to scare the crap out of someone.
I bet you have a perfectly good reason for it!

Playtime: Alice Madness Returns

“You’re sufficiently qualified to kick some a- to boot these creatures’ nether regions”
Yesterday the most loving guinea pig mom in the world Amy said she’s going to a “pawty” this weekend.
But not just a pawty, she’ll be wearing a sweet (but little bit wacky) Alice costume, which made my imagination go into overdrive, hnnnngg!!
She instantly freed me by saying “go on and make a tutorial!”, I flew right over to my make-up stash!!!
Creative recharge mode activated!
The first thing that creeped to mind was the Alice Madness Returns game, one of the most bizar and imaginative games i’ve played so far this year.
The story is based on the original Alice In Wonderland when it comes to characters and.. well Wonderland.

Poison lips: (anti) Valentine look

Before I start off, let me just say I don’t hate Valentine at all!
I think it’s sugary sweet goodness.
However I don’t think it needs to be mainstream either. Or big and expensive for that matter.
If you’re alone, go pamper yourself! Go! Bathtub, candles, chocolates, nom nom. ;)
If you’re together, do a picknick maybe or play Twister?
There’s so much fun stuff to do!
Right so back to the look.
Because Valentine’s makes me feel sugary inside, I wanted to combine cotton candy colors with some poison.
A “cure” for the sugar rush so to speak!
For my eyes I wanted sort of a doll effect, and for my lips I wanted a permanent smile with lipstick drooping off like on the picture.
The blue is supposed to make it look poisonous.. I hope that worked.. ;D
