|This cosplay was worn at a Zombiestuck meet in London in June 2013.|
I ran several blood/effects tests before the actual day, and practised with wax, theatre and gel blood. However, it turned out that the hard part was not creating the wounds, it was keeping them there. I had to retouch the one on the back of my hand several times due to accidentally scratching it or squishing it.
I also got sunburned on the day and really should have put suncream on before bloodying up. I overheated wearing the jacket but unfortunately could not take it off unless I had removed all the make-up - which I did after a few hours.
