1  Zombie Costume. Grarrrgggh! in Halloween Costumes by MyFireElf on: October 31, 2007 01:05:37 PM
I posted a picture of my makeup test run here last week, and here's the finished product:

Closeup of the face:

(The chest scratches are my favorite part)

And an action shot!

The clothes are old ones I don't wear anymore as they're just a little too small. I tore them up distressed them, stomped them into the dirt, and soaked them in fake blood. The face makeup is liquid latex and tissue paper, with a green base covered over in purple, brown, and black, with gel blood for effect. (Looks like some of the neck and arm stuff is rubbing off. Poo.)

I'm really happy with the way it came out - I even won the office costume contest. Whee! Except the latex is very stiff and starting to peel around the edges - I'm dying to pull it all off, and I still have four more hours of work to go!

2  Zombie Makeup - test run in Halloween Costumes by MyFireElf on: October 27, 2007 04:08:01 PM
I wanted to do a makeup test for my halloween costume, since I never wear makeup and I'm no great shakes at it. I'm really pleased with the results!

(Please excuse my sucky camera phone)

I did a layer of liquid latex, then laid on some tissue paper over my cheeks and forehead (I later pulled the forehead one open for the wound), and another layer of latex. Then I put makeup over it, of course...

3  Gorgeous yarn! ...Now what? in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by MyFireElf on: June 05, 2006 10:55:06 PM
I've been lurking for a while, but this is my first post, so I apologize if it's in the wrong place.

My mother went to Alaska recently and brought me back this beautiful yarn. I'm in love with it and can't wait to see how it works up. The only problem is, I'm still relatively new to crochet (only a sc scarf and two hats finished so far), and I've got no idea what sort of project will best showcase it. It's like a solid acrylic (I think) yarn with a stringy eylash/ribbon sort of yarn twisted around it. What can I make? Any suggestions?
