happy halloween

Sunday, October 31, 2010 |
I’m not really a Halloween person. I don’t do scary, and I’m not a huge fan of dressing up, so it makes sense. Now Christmas – give me Christmas any day (yes, even in July). BUT! Over the last year and a half my tolerance for zombies has grown into something fairly substantial. And some of my friends have dubbed me the ‘zombie girl.’ What better night to actually try out my zombie face than Halloween? So, for your viewing pleasure, a step-by-step transformation…


The blank page. I usually don't wear my hear pulled back like this, but the YouTube 'how to' videos strongly suggested it. LOVE that there are tutorials on how to do zombie makeup. I mean, seriously awesome.


The tools (thank you, generic party store).


After applying the white base coat. I already look pretty crazy, but there's plenty of ground to cover. Err...brains to eat!


The finished product. I smudged black and grey around my eyes, and used the 'vampire blood' to create a realistic look on my shirt. Because I didn't really want blood on my face.

Pretty freaky, huh? It was FUN. And kind of perfect. Because when we went out, everyone thought it was cool, but no one got too close. Just the way I like it…

Ooh, definitely a creepy zombie! I totally attribute Zombies vs Unicorns to my higher tolerance for zombies. Hope you had an awesome Halloween :)

That looks like fun. I never do that with the colours on face but it's freaky fun!

Hey, pretty good. The hair's a bit clean and not-matted for a zombie, but it was just a make-up demo after all. Hope ya had a good Halloween.
