1  Re: True Blood Round 2 Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by erinmarieZ on: August 06, 2009 03:10:38 PM
Everything is awesome!!!! ehinders should be expecting my package any day now.  And I finally remembered to dig out the DC# to send her!  Yay....Everyone double check the first page of this thread and let me know if your status is up to date, so I can change it if it is not...and now....the lovely wonderful package ehinders sent me!

Two t-shirts that she made for me.  The Merlotte's collared shirt makes me feel like I'm Sam's girlfriend and I am running the bar for the day.  And The "Bubba has not left the building" shirt with Bubba hair...from the books..awesome I love it!  And they fit me great

A close up of the pillow she made me.  It's got lyrics to the opening song, and it's based on a Labyrinth pillow that I wisted...so cool.  Ignore the other things, I'll explain later...Oh except the true blood piece of paper.  She wrote my note explaining how everything was done on the other side of that...cute idea...now Ifeel bad though because I forgot to put her note in her package!

A little true blood keepsake box, and an awesome book mark.  So I can use it for reading all the Southern Vampire Mystery books.  It's got awesome red beads that look like blood drops on it.

And the whole lot...my mom took these pictures for me because I can never get good pics of this kind of stuff...I feel like she made it look so pretty as if she's going to sell it on ebay...but I love everything!

2  Re: zombies, zombies, and zombies, oh my!...ideas needed in Halloween Costumes by erinmarieZ on: August 04, 2009 04:35:52 PM

From Left to Right -

Pic 1:  Good view of a bruise on the Forehead
Pic 2:  Side view of mouth slit with my hair up
Pic 3:  View of the full face with my hair down and eyes closed
Pic 4:  Close up of my mouth
Pic 5:  Bruise on my arm I tried to get to look like a bite mark.
Pic 6:  Side view of bruise and mouth slit with hair down.
Pic 7:  View of my mouth with my hair down...I think because of the lighting in this picture I just look like a drug addict not a zombie
Pic 8:  Neck bruises, I was "strangled" this is actually the second pic, I started to wipe it off and I think I liked it better this way then what I origionally did.
Pic 9:  First neck bruise strangle pic.  I think this looks less like a real bruise then the previous picture.

All the makeup was done in a matter of 5 minutes.  I used liquid foundation in my true blend color, a little bit of white pancake makeup(from my face painting stash), little bit of green, purple, and yellow from face painting stash.  And a bruise wheel that I bought a few halloweens ago. 

Any tips or suggestions on how to make it look more realistic, or things to add or take away? Does it look enough like a zombie, or do I just look sick and like I got beat up?

3  zombies, zombies, and zombies, oh my!...ideas needed in Halloween Costumes by erinmarieZ on: August 03, 2009 07:12:51 AM
Okay so here's the story...
I'm going to Salem, MA this year with my mom, my best friend, her sister, their mom, and their cousin.  We are planning on going to the "Retro Zombie Ball"...awesome right?

So I'm thinking of a costume ideas...there is a cash prize for most creative/best zombie.  And let's face the facts, I love Halloween so I at least want to be considered.

Supplies I already have include a bruise wheel and liquid latex(may need to buy some more).  I'm a professional face painter so I have some paints and supplies that can make my body look all green or blue or purple or yellow or gray...

Here is what I need help with:

1.  Awesome zombie costume ideas.  Group zombie ideas.  Maybe different decades of zombies(the further back the decade the more decay she will have).  Or disney princess zombies?  Anything for just me...that isn't a group idea.
2.  In case I'm zombie-fying myself the idea my mommy and I came up with is...she can be the survivor who hasn't been changed yet!  I have a copy of the "zombie survival guide" that I think would be cute to have her carry around.  This way she doesn't have to have too much make up or fx on her face.  What are your suggestions for a suvivor of a zombie attack?
3.  Best zombie make up tutes you know of?  Or ideas?

<Edit-talked to friend...her and her family are planning on dressing in red dresses with black heels and just trying to stand out, she is recently divorced and wants to pick up dudes, I get that...however I have a dude already, and I love zombie and horror and halloween makeup so just ideas for me as a zombie, and my mom as a zombie survivor>

(Edit Number 2 - Zombie Makeup Practice...scroll down a few posts to see more)

There's my teaser pic...I still don't have the DC# as my momma has to get it for me, she helps me send out all my packages as I'm horrible at that stuff.  She went to CVS like 4 hours ago and I haven't heard from her since...but I hope gothcics likes everything when she gets it!!

I received my package from VinceNoir today!

First up is a needlepoint of the True Blood poster/DVD cover

Next we have an apron.  I love the fabric used, VinceNoir put my favorite quote on the bottom..."I wanna do bad things with you" from the opening credits song.  Sorry if you can't see that well in the pictures.  I had to use my cell phone, my camera won't upload to this computer for some reason.

Lastly, we have two wrist warmers, and a choker.  I believe all were crocheted...correct me if I'm wrong.

P.S. Please ignore any weird items in he background, such as choclate bars, recipes, purses, or coat hoods...these were taken on my kitchen table...which tends to be very messy!
