So I decided I want to be Little Red Riding Hood for Halloween. Only, you know, not fortunate enough to get away from the Big Bad Wolf! So I'm gonna have scratch marks on my arms and chest, maybe neck. The husband and I decided to play around with the makeup today to see what we could come up with. We used liquid latax, toliet paper, makeup (my regular, every day makeup!) and, of course some blood!









Oh, we also used Lippsstix 's awesome tutorial. After I showed the husband that post, he knew he wanted to be a zombie!

They look real! Although, just one tip- I would make the blood/scabs a little darker. I have nothing planned for halloween yet...how long did it take you to do those?

hehe. i like fake blood.

the look real, but like fresh marks. maybe you could add some "dirt" or something and smudged blood. you know from running away in the forrest and falling

It looks really great. People have mentioned making it darker; here's a trick from stage makeup: the makeup should be darkest in the center of the scratch, as that is the deepest part. Black eyeliner works great for this. Apply it first, then go over it with the blood to give it a red tint so it's not just a line of black down the gash.

Eeek, so graphic!! How long did it take to do this? I know last Halloween my friends and I got a little carried away doing a sorta shotgun wound on my friends arm, took us forever!!

Looking forward to seeing your completed outfit - great idea btw!

Ooohhh, pretty! (I know, I am strange). In another topic, some one suggested using coffee grinds as a way to darken the wound and make it look more clotted. I haven't tried it yet, but it seems like it will work.

Thanks everyone! And thanks for the great tips! I super like the idea of rubbing dirt in/around the wounds, I'm definitely going to do that. And thanks for the tips on the blood. Looking back at the pics, it does look a bit too bright. In the wounds we put some red cream makeup and mixed some black in it to give it a darker, burgundy look, then put some fake blood on top of that. Maybe that's what made it look so bright. I'll definitely make it darker though. And thanks, astrisked, for the tip on making it darkest in the middle!

It took about an hour and a half, but most of it was due to letting it air dry. It took about almost an hour alone, just to let it dry. We'll definitely be buying a hair dryer before Halloween to speed up the process. I need one anyone, haha!

Great job! I skipped school today to play around with my sfx makeup and LL! Still haven't perfected anything as good as this though! Can you post the link to the tutorial that you used?

Thanks ZoeZombie! It was fun to play around with. Here's the tutorial I used:

I'm terrible at putting in links, so if it didn't work, it's by craftster member, Lippsstix. It's in this category and it's a tutorial on zombie makeup. Totally helpful =). Have fun!
