i was thinking, what if you took some blue nailpolish and put it on your fingernails, and let it dry just a bit, before you wiped it off. you'd end up with a little bluish tint in the centre, and it'd be darker near the cuticles n whatnot... it might look kinda drownedish.. i have no idea... i just wanted to post and say that i like your idea, because like the previous poster, i too love hamlet. now all i need is an excuse to dress up on halloween...

Ask not what your rest home can do for you, but what you can do for your rest home.

Laura Palmer from 'Twin Peaks' is a great example of how to look drowned:

Also keep in mind there's a purple undertone around your eyes. Some light yellow, with an overall bluish cast, works for the rest of the skin. I quite recommend http://www.fxsupply.com/bn_catalog/bn_effects.htmlBen Nye's Death Wheel, as it has all the colors you need, and perhaps their cream base of Ghoul Grey. You can pick their stuff up in any costume or movie supply house.

Definitely do the blue cast to your skin and especially lips. You could also make some "beads" of water on your clothes/accessories with glue gun (I think that is how they put that fake "dew" on silk flowers, right?), that might look cool.  Maybe do natural coloured press on nails that you have made ragged-looking and dirty from floating around in the water.

www.mehron.com is an amazing supplier of costume/theatrical makeup. Check it out.

The easiest way would be to cover your whole face/neck/visible chest with one flat shade of blue. Make sure you get your lips, ears, and the skin around your nostrils as well (often-overlooked areas). Then go in with the detail coluor, yellow/purple tints on your eyes, different values of blue depending on the most sensitive areas. (maybe look that up on a medical website, which body parts freeze first or something.)

If you're really adventurous, buy an airbrush. That provides the BEST effects for makeup, period. However, it can get a bit pricey, and if you're not too good with costume makeup, that makes it more difficult. Get a friend to help out.

Opaque contact lenses woul give you that really dead, glazed look.

Never try to teach a pig to sing; it wastes your time and it annoys the pig.
