Zombie Makeup (cause there aren't enough out there)

*I bought a zombie kit, but he wasn't a fan of it*

*zombie makeup TAKE 2*

What you need:
2 ply toilet paper (separate the layers and rip into smaller pieces)
Elmer's Glue
Makeup (regular girlie makeup)


Figure out where you want the booboo/scar/tissue damage/wound?

Using your finger, dip into glue and then onto skin (not too much not too little).

Place tissue (piece by piece)
*it will wrinkle, it will roll, it will build up = NO Worries*
Let air Dry or use a blow dryer (on cold)

I used:
Browns/Yellows/Black/Red or Rust/Green (dark and light)

Browns/Yellows and Black around eyes. 

On / Around the wound: 
Black/Brown and Red
The rest of the face, add color where you think they belong. 

I used the Green as an accent (along hairline, corner of mouth/nose)

I did use the 'blood' that came with the makeup. 
 It was Green, it was gross...but in the end it was very cool looking.

*his costume was fun to do too*

*The Headpiece* rather heavy.
I used 3 wire hangers to make up the base. 
Then I used 5+ rubber snakes and 4 smaller snakes, and wired them onto the base. 
Spray painted everything black (had previously painted the snakes black),
Used my Medusa dread falls (that I made) and wrapped those into the headpiece.
I read somewhere that Medusa liked shinny, I hit up many yard sales and my own stash to find pieces. 

*The Makeup*
Fishnet stocking over forehead.
I used Halloween black to dab on and then used glitter black powder to set it.
*The Eyes*
White upper lids.
Elmers glue + White glitter.
Dark purple in the crease and a lighter for under the brow. 
Light pink lipstick + purple eye shadow to set and color lips.

Put hair in pigtails. 
Put on 2 dread falls per side. 
Then used the other dread falls to balance the headpiece in place.
*Medusa dread falls - I braided the wavy yarn together in sections.  Then added any lil shiny bits to it.  THEN dropped into boiling water for a few seconds. Pulled out and let air dry for a few hours (days really, only cause I hadn't felt like messing with them sooner). Then strung onto another piece of yarn (like you do putting together dread falls normally).

*Black dress*

Last Minute Makeup

Had a Halloween Harvest Festival to take the boys to, but I didn't want to use my costume for this year. 
I took the wire crown I made.
DreadFalls from a couple years ago...
I don't know what I was? 
A Clown?
Goth Clown?
I don't know.

Water down liquid liner in my palm using a makeup brush (cheap one).
Lined the lower lids -
adding more water in the spots where I wanted it to run.

It was reading Dark and Moody and since the event was a kids thing, I wanted it to be more playful.

I went back over the runs w/ purple eyeshadow and then went ahead and did the rest of the makeup. 

Still not *playful* enough...
I took Elmer's Glue and painted on over the runs and lower part of the lid.
Then using a Qtip, I dipped that into PINK Glitter and put on the glued spots.
I did the same technique to my upper lid, but with -
White eyeshadow and White glitter.

It was so much fun! 
I didn't want to take it off.
