I took a workshop on horror makeup and special effects last week, which was great fun. I learned how to make some pretty creepy and gross stuff! Now, I still feel like I have a ton to learn in this department, but I did learn some sweet new tricks and how to use some cool special effects products. Check out some of what I created… and don’t worry… it’s only paint!
And this guy is a prosthetic foam latex mask. Once he is painted and prepped, you take out the mouth and eyes and adhere the mask to your face using special body adhesives. The soft foam then moves with you, so the mouth and jaw and eyebrows all work along with your real face. It is a REALLY cool effect if you’re looking for a truly unique costume.
