I'd really like a "ripped apart and hastily stitched back together" type look for Hallowe'en, and stitches drawn on with eyeliner leave me less than impressed. Does anyone have any good tips for making more realistic-looking stitches?? They would be much appreciated!

Thanks!!! Smiley

I don't know how viable it is, but if you have a recipe for something that looks like skin, I'd say try painting it on and letting it dry, then peeling it off carefully and actually hand-stitching it with black thread.  Then paint on more wherever it was and press it in, hopefully the fresh fake skin will act as an adhesive.  I'll let you know if I find a recipe, all I could find in the one book I looked in was melting skin.

i used this black tattoo pen when i was sally from NMBC a few years ago.  i was in the dorm cafeteria and this kid came up and was like, "oh man!  when i first saw you from over there, i was like, 'shit!  what happened to that girl's face?!?!?'" 

but i'm thinking you're wanting something kind of 3D-ish.  ummm...stumped.

I recommend Superglueing or nail glue, etc really thick thread in the shape of stiches. Last time I had stitches they were blue. Maybe a lipliner puncture wounds where the stitches would go in?

Ok, so the idea for the fake skin is aweXome, but even easier (that stuff is next to impossible to stay on once it's peeled off) is prosthetics.  This company called Woochie makes really great ones, you could sew on it then attatch it!!!

There are many sites and stores that carry them, but here is a website that has tons of them...

They are kinda pricey, but they are reusable...if thier are still intact, I don't know if stitching them would hurt...

try this one especially...

Oh, if you are near Chicago, there is a store in Willowbrook

Murray's Partytime Supplies
6300 Kingery Hwy Ste 310
Willowbrook, IL 60527-2267 
(630) 789-8463

They have them there, no shipping to pay, but they don't have all of them.

AND, they have a pair of tights that look like Sally's legs, still kicking myself for not buying them...
