Halloween 2015: the party guests makeup

Today I’d like to show you some of the photos that were taken during the party last weekend! These are photos of most of the people I painted, either in progress or as a result. Some people also added more paint, more blood, more whatever, because everyone was supercreative and enthousiastic! I really enjoyed myself here and I am looking forward to doing more makeup now, as I am finding a balance between working life and freetime πŸ™‚

For today, this is it. The footage of Nebula and my own makeup in progress has yet to be edited. My computer here is not very good at that, because it’s very old, and as you know, my laptop which I used to edit with, has gone to computerheaven hell. I’m working on things though!

This shows my claws! I showed you these with one of the previews, when it was inside out.

13 nights until Halloween

Practising the makeup for a Team Evil member. This needs contouring, more blood and a better job on the black on the eyelids.

Making prosthetic ‘sticker’ wounds for the party attendees that don’t zombiefy themselves. I plan to paint them and add blood when placing them onto someone, not in advance.

Work in progress – 23 nights ’till Halloween

*Insert evil mhuahaha dr. Frankenstein sound*

Let it be clear that I am after this post on completely ignoring the fact that I was MIA on this blog for 3 months. I was going to do a post like: hey, I’m back! But screw that. No one reads it anyway πŸ˜› This is not a travel blog people!
Though if you must know more about where the heck I’ve been, feel free to let me know and I might show of some awesome photos…

The best time of the year has arrived!! It’s October and that means HALLOWEEN!!!!!!

Seriously, this is the best Halloween EVER.
I am working on so many things right now, you have to see this once I have it all wrapped up. I’m so, supersuperstoked and happy about it and I can’t find the right words to describe how much I LOVE this.. πŸ˜€ Big shoutout to Tereza (Hi Tereza!) for her trust in me and her courage to be my model!

I know I had the best time last year, but this year is so much better.Β I have so much to do for Halloween, that when my ‘clients’ from last year called to ‘hire’ me again, I had to cancel..
I have at least 2 other people I’m doing makeup for on Halloween itself besides my own makeup.
I am probably also going to do the makeup of the party host.
Besides that I will be the on site MUA for party poopers that didn’t dress up so I can turn them into Halloween-worthy wonders.

All of that is so fantastic!
And of the people that I will be doing makeup for, I have done lots of research and homework, and we started preparing weeks ago. I invented something that is so cool! I filmed everything, won’t be able to edit but we’ll get there!

So above, that is something for my own look.
I decided to create my own latex glove so I can simply wear that over my hand at the party, while when I have to do makeup on site I can throw it off and work without worries about the paint or whatever on my hand.

I used some sculpting wax first to create longer fingertips, and I pressed some really weird fake nails into that (not visible in picture because it’s inside out). Then I created about 5 layers of liquid latex all over the hand and BAM, done!
Basically it’s just the regular process of using latex, except I did it on my own hand instead of a mall.

This is some homemade fake blood! Whooohoo!
I’m really doing research into the DIY material like gelatine, this is just one of the things I have been playing with. So yeah, gelatine is pretty awesome.
I discovered that it is not OK to save some prepared gelatine outside of the freezer for over 2 weeks, because you’ll get a nasty side effect food generally tends to get, other than that, it’s brilliant!

On a non Halloween related note: I have been painting at the wall, but no pictures because I didn’t take my camera with me when I visited my parents, so, that will have to wait.

My life right now? Aside from all listed above, I’m good. I love living in this city, on my own. It took me a while to get the whole household thing down but it’s ok now. Cooking for myself really is paying off now, combine the portion control with cycling an hour everyday + going to the gym thrice a week and you’ll get a healthier lifestyle. Work is also pretty good!
Everything’s a little hectic because after a full-time job I push myself to the limit to work on Halloween stuff, work out and have a social life, so that’s also why it took me pretty long to get back to TSAR.

Anyways, I hope you’re still around, reading my blog! I really appreciate it and I wanted to show you this little something, and let you know that I am still alive and well, and also still really into doing makeup.

Love,

-M.

Just tried something…

Messed around this morning… it’s called rigid collodion πŸ˜€

I just got this stuff last week and tested it out, just to see what would happen.. Only afterwards I read somewhere that I should probably not use to many layers at the same day. But then, who would leave this on for longer than a day???
Anyways, I removed it with a special potion that is not a remover but makes it thinner, no problem at all. No weird reactions from my skin, so, I’d say let’s find a new project to use this!!

Love,

-M.
