Well, Friday the 13th is here…time to go to spooky themed parties and clubs. Sadly, not for this little black duck – I’ll be working – but I thought I’d drop in a little bit of Friday the 13th inspo, for those who might be gothically inclined….
Back in 2010 I did this Spooky Halloween Make-up tutorial (back when I was still on Blogger!) Here are some in-process shots:
If you want to read how I did it, the ‘how-to’ is in the tutorial. Go have a look!
For a little something MORE extreme, how about going as a character from Buffy and the Vampire Slayer?
If you can’t guess, I went as a female version of the Gentlemen in the episode Hush – remember them? They were eerily quiet and floated along with evil menace, grinning all the while. See my version here, in my post about the Spooky Ghouls at the Undead themed Cobweb Club. (And yes, those boots above are the spine-heeled ones from my recent photoshoot).
I didn’t actually do a How To on that occasion, but I explain a little bit in the Undead blog post about it, as well as posting a lot more piccies if you’re interested. If you’d like me to do a How To in detail, drop me a line and let me know! (Here’s a facebook album that shows the whole process as it happened).
On the subject of make-up how-to’s, Amelia Arsenic has done a fab tutorial for the L’Oreal competition, very much in the same vein as my Halloween tutorial above – but obviously with more definition and superior blending skills! Take a look at Amelia’s Color Clash Makeup Tutorial, and then vote for her!
So that’s a bit of ghoulish inspiration for Friday the 13th – are you going to any parties, dressed as anything spooktacular?
