Halloween is around the corner!! :D

I love Halloween. Its my favorite holiday!
if you wanna call it that.

I have been working on a few ideas for this coming trick-or-treating session.

My oldest son is 15 and one of his friends wants to be the character Harvey Dent/Two-Face played by Aaron Eckhart in The Dark Knight.

So I figured I would share my first installment of images from our trial run this weekend. After sharing these images with a friend about our dilemma with adding more texture to his face, she shared a great link with me:

Homemade Scars

Its given my some great ideas. So I have decided that we are going to use Elmers Glue to create a 'skin' for him with texture and depth. I will probably put food coloring in the glue itself and then make homemade blood and such. Should be so much fun.

On this look I used the following:
  1. Applied a dark foundation as a base for the eyeshadow to adhere to and use as a barrier from his skin.
  2. I set the foundation with a medium gray eyeshadow from Sally's Beauty supply, but in the end it wasn't dark enough and I used a Revlon Slate Gray eyeshadow instead.
  3. The teeth were drawn on with a L'Oreal HiP Cream liner in black using a Sonia Kashuk bent liner brush from Target. I filled the teeth in with white clown makeup that can be found at any local drug store or Walmart.
  4. The red areas are actually Wet n Wild lipstick and then drawn over with the liner again.
Here comes the crazy part... He is actually considering shaving HALF his head off. YES OMG!!! I suggested getting a cheap wig from the local Halloween store and just removing half the hair off. And then we will just add the glue and texture afterwards. I will keep you posted. :D
