Costume Information

I kept saying I'd never do a zombie but then I read Warm Bodies and saw the trailers and thought why the hell not.

Having now seen the movie properly I really wanna redo this costume at some point with better coloured lenses and more scars and wear and tear to the costume. I think now I have the dvd I can totally get this done. Trying to persuade my other half to be M.

Wow, that make-up completely changes your face, I wouldn't have guessed it was you!

Thanks Sephirayne.

It really does Amy though I need to find a different colour to do my cheek bones. The tutorial I followed said to use the same black or dark grey used on the eyes but I was using black and I think its a wee bit too dark if I'm honest. Gonna trying it with some different colours when I get my hands on them

Yeah I think I might have done the make up slightly different this time. I think I used brown eye shadow instead of black, or did I use both. I can't actually remember lol. I still need to add all the rips and stuff to my tshirt but I wanna do the knife mark but need to do it when I'm bound so I can try and get the placement right lol.

Definitely go with black/grey eyeshadow, I think the brown's a little too warm. You definitely want to be more grey/blue/white than brown. Just observations from when I saw the movie haha. And don't forget the black on your lips! ;)

My first make up trial was black eye shadow but when I used it on my cheek bones made me look silly so the brown definitely looked better there. I might try mixing the two as I ended up like a reverse panda with the black lol.

You did a fantastic job on this. While the costume is basic in design you have made it as accurate as possible and it really makes for an excellent result. I love the make-up work and you look so different. That shows that you have done a fantastic make-up job. Well done hun ♥

Thanks hun not bad for someone who isn't very good with make up. Now I just need to find some decent make up to use for my female Sub Zero. I have some ideas but getting hold of the actual items is proving difficult
