EDITED: I've added a tutorial for the cracked-porcelain make-up on the second page. Fun times!

(This costume is modified from one I created earlier this year; you can see the original version and details of the dress and bloomers in this thread.)

Close-up of makeup. This was my first time using derma wax, and I couldn't get the edges as crisp as I wanted, so the final effect was more torn skin than the cracked porcelain I had intended.


The other (more elaborate) side.


The whole costume. Joints were drawn on with sharpie; make-up SFX are derma wax and greasepaint; dress and bloomers recon'd from a Gunne Sax wedding dress and a bunch of antique handkerchiefs and buttons:


Label. Spencerian script FTW!

This is super awesome and inspiring! My husband and I are being a mad scientist and a robot doll.  I love the crack detail.

I love it! Even though this freaks me out a little.  Shocked
It reminds me of the creepy doll my mom had from when she was a kid. This is a very cool costume, you nailed the details.

It's eerie and beautiful, all at once! I'm in awe of your makeup work and calligraphy skills and have to tell you, those socks would be swiped so fast if they were in the same room as me... Wink

Thank you, so much!

I've had mine for six or seven years--they last for-freakin'-ever.
