I am a stickler for accuracy, so I found Sally pictures and painstakingly painted fabric, sewed, weaved yarn into a crocheted hat, and tried to make everything as close to the actual Sally as possible. (more pics to come once people send them to me!)


My costume


inspiration


my job actually paid off...makeup by me. Lashes glowed in the dark

Enjoy!

From the little thumbnail pic on the front page I immediately knew you were Sally. You really do look just like her! Very accurate.

Wow, thanks for the kudos everyone! Glad you guys like it!

As for the makeup, I use professional theater makeup (I'm a hairstylist/makeup artist by trade) by Ben Nye. It's a smidgen more expensive, but totally worth it, it's a nice creme/grease mix and you can really do almost anything with their stuff. Also, when I put the white on, I mixed a little black with it to make it a little grayish. Besides being more movie-accurate, it makes the color more opaque and blends and covers better.

If you do get Ben Nye makeup, make sure you invest in some powder (to set the makeup) and cold cream (to remove it). It's meant to stay in place under hot theater lights and not melt off, so it takes some scrubbing!
