Bloody masquerade

I apparently can't stop making stuff if I see an awesome idea. And the other day when I was browsing pinterest I found this interesting makup concept. This must be tried, and for you I documented the process. 
 Make up by Sandra Holmbom

And I was going to Kultcon and needed something to wear on the first day ;)

So the entire outfit with makeup was put together in just a couple of hours. 

You need a mask, and I didn't bother to make one to I bought a pre-made from Panduro.

After trimming it to my liking, I added a layer of glue to the front and several layers of tape and glue on the backside to get that "uneven flesh look". 

The inside was painted with red and dark brown acryllic paint, with a layer of glue over to get a more shiny effect efter it dried. 





For the front I used the same foundation I was going to use on my skin and sealed it with fixing spray. 

Then I added a few details as staple stitched along the rim. And a rod covered in a satin ribbon with feathers and a few single earrings I had laying around.  

A little fake blood was added in the end to make it look "freshly torn off". 



The mask
Build up with latex and tissue.


Then color the latex with dark brown and red acrylic paint. 


When it has dried you peel it off and use the mask as a template to cut it into shape. I wanted it to completely follow the shape of the mask. 




On the day of application use either liquid latex of skin glue to attach it to you face. Use Liquid latex to seal the edges. 

Touch up the paint and add fake blood with a stipple sponge around the edges. And droplets of blood down your face. 

I also applied a smoky eye beauty makeup with false lashes. And white contacts for max effect.

    1. Latex that is to be used on your skin is bought from a makeup store, in Oslo that would be Visage or Festmagasinet. You can buy it online also. (e.g search Liquid Latex on ebay)

      I also use latex to cast costumes (Lieara head, human heart purse) For this I use a cheaper latex, which you should NOT use on your skin, bought at Panduro.

      Read the labels, if it has a warning against skin contact then you don't wat to use it in your face ;)

    1. And the effect it has on people is awesome. You just stare, and they don't know if they should keep looking or slowly walk away...

  4. will this pull my eyebrows out when I go to remove the latex?

    1. It might. Either don't cover your eyebrows with latex. Or cover them with glue from a gluestick and then powder it before applying latex. I also got a tip to apply skin lotion before applying latex, but I haven't tried this :)

  5. Did you use a plastic or a paper mache mask?

    SvarSlett
    Svar
    1. It was a cardboard mask (pressed paper mache I guess) easier to paint and glue stuff too ;)

  6. Very nice design. Did you choose to use latex on the face instead of just makeup for a more realistic effect?

    SvarSlett
    Svar
    1. Yes, The latex and tissue build up texture really well, and that often makes people stop and look an extra time.

  8. One more question...what type of glue do you use?

    SvarSlett
    Svar
    1. That depends. To glue something to my face I use Spirit Gum (mastix)
      To glue on the rod I hold mask with I used a glue gun
      To get a smooth "flesh" look inside the mask I could use wood Glue (But I only used acrylic paint here)

  9. Do I just put liquid latex on the back of the piece that goes on your face when I'm going out on Halloween? How long does it take for the face piece to dry?

    SvarSlett
    Svar
    1. Hi, it dries pretty fast, I think I used less than 30 min to make the entire thing the (the part that goes on my face) use either more latex og skin glue to attach it the day you want to use it. But make sure you have enough time ti put it on, especially if you have not done anything like this before.
