Talk Science to Me!

This year, for Denver's zombie crawl, I played make-up artist for my own little horde.

I'm kind of proud of myself.  We're all rather fresh zombies- lots of wounding, not a lot of rot.

Let's talk makeup.  I have a relatively simple supply list:

-toilet paper
-food coloring
-a master bruise palette
-scar wax
-thick blood
-liquid laytex

I started by darkening my cheekbones, jaw line, and under my eyes with the bruise palette. Wounds were created either with toilet paper or scar wax, and affixed with the liquid laytex. I filled the wounds in with thick blood, then attacked them with the bruise palette to make them properly mortal looking.

The food coloring, I actually swished around in my mouth to make my teeth nasty (it only lasts ten or twenty minutes, though), then kind of drooled down my chin.  Very attractive, that trick.

And then it's brains for everyone!

I blogged this year's crawl here.
