It Only Hurts When I Type...

It's only two days until Halloween.  I haven't done prop makeup in a long time... I decided that I needed to do a bit of practicing before Wednesday.

I think that I remember it.  These are the tools I used.  Not the best, but I was too cheap and too lazy to go find a costume store. 

I got the "stage" makeup from K mart... I can't say that I am impressed, but it does work.  It only has to last through lunch. 

I am not worried about myself, but the other witches may lose their appetites with what I have planned. 

You saw the shirt and wig yesterday.  Now I am amassing wounds and trying to figure out how to have fingers fall off without losing any for real.

See the eyelash glue in the first photo.  That works, in a pinch, if you don't have any liquid latex for raising the edges of wounds.  It does take a while to dry, however.

I made little circles and smoothed out the outer edges to blend with my skin. 

Then when that was dry, I started with the makeup, blending as I went.

It must look OK so far.  George was somewhat surprised when I showed it to him....

He requested that I remove his glasses, so he wouldn't have to look at it.

I am going to leave it on for a couple of hours and see how it holds up.

Then bright and early, Wednesday morning, I am going to get up and do my face and both arms.  It may take a while....

Sorry about the lapse of minis.  I am going to go do something of that sort as soon as the wounds heal a bit...

See you tomorrow.

I thought the wounds were real at first! OUCH! That will really give the witches something to think about!

that's great stuff you can even use it for a "The Walking Dead" costume.

not that I'm going to wear that..I plan on being a Klingon (I have the wig and everything....well except clevage (Klingon women show a lot and I just dont want that type of attention)

Love

Hi Casey. Gross! But great job making those "wounds" look real! They convinced me!Looking forward to seeing more photos of your arms and face.
Thanks for taking the time to reply to my question yesterday.
Have a GREAT HALLOWEEN PARTY. I don't do costumes either! Love your shirt.

Oh my.... Casey, they look far too real.
Scary, that's what they are. And meant to be I suppose.
Have fun on Wednesday, Rosanna

At first, I thought you had hurt yourself! Very realistic! Are you doing that to your face also? If so, scary!
