Avatar makeup

It’s a while ago now! But before Christmas, I had a request of a friend, asking me to help him with his costume. It was for a party, and he was willing to go all out. I suppose he came to the right person! 😊

He wanted to be like a character from James Cameron’s Avatar. We discussed the details and decided to try and make the nose shape and do full upper body makeup. 

I started with the nose, because I had to make it in advance. The technique I chose was latex, mixed with flour, applied on my foam head, Charlie. 

We had a fitting session, because Charlie didn’t have the same nose as my friend. After some adjustments we had our nose! 

I finished the edges with some nose putty where needed, the rest is latex. The edges are something I really want to learn more about! 

Then I added pointed ears, painted him blue, added contouring, stripes, eyemakeup, and he had gotten a wig, contacts and accessories. 

We had a lot of fun and his party was a success!
Love,
