25th April 2011: Sci fi London Easter Parade First time wearing this costume. I did a makeup test at home first, and found that I made the scars too thick - needed thinning out a lot more at the edges so that there wasn't a huge "step" between latex and skin after I glued them on. I did what I could to fix that. The end result was okay, they were still messy around the edges. It would've been fine if I was going for a "realistic" effect actually, but Black Jack's scars are supposed to be very clean-cut and artificial looking. XD;
I think the outcome was good for a first attempt at casting latex prosthetics, but I'm going to make some new scars for the next time I wear this.
So yeah, to make it a bit smoother looking I went and touched up the scars on photoshop a little.
Oh yeah also - Snazaroo's spirit gum is kind of crap. I had to buy it last minute though so it was whatever the local art supplies shop had! I've got some pros-aide coming my way so next time this will be better. :)
