Hey everybody!! I am finally finishing up this tutorial and just in time for Halloween!! Tomorrow I will post pictures from our Halloween party last Friday, because everyone’s costumes were so adorable! But for today I have the tutorial for the wolf vest and a makeup tutorial for Little Red! Let’s get started on the vest! When I went to JoAnn’s I looked in the fabric section for fur that I felt most resembled werewolf fur. I was lucky enough to get the fur for 50% off! So the vest cost me $7! I got a yard and a half of fabric.
First thing I did was lay the fabric out length-wise. I took the fabric and centered it around my shoulders. I decided that I really didn’t want to have to sew the vest, so I took a pen and made marks on the inside of the fabric where my arms would come through. Once I marked the spot on each side, I cut a 10ish inch line down the fabric to fit my arms though. Then I tried it on!
Now onto the makeup! I started by applying a smoky eye. I wanted something harsh and heavy feeling. For a full tutorial on a smoky eye you can check out the link here.
Next thing after your makeup is applied, we will do the scratches! There are 2 products you need for this tutorial: Rigid Collodion and Bloody Scab. Both products you can find in the makeup and prosthetics section at your local Halloween store! And they are like $5 for both!
Rigid collodion is the first thing you are going to apply. This stuff is so cool. It’s perfect for making fake scars because it sucks your skin in and makes actual indentations in your face. BEFORE YOU APPLY it’s important for you to know that it’s going to sting a little and it has a very strong smell. Your face is literally going to feel like it’s stuck. But don’t worry after it dries you can move around and that stuff isn’t going anywhere!
So what you do is paint it on your face like you would paint your nails. I did 4 long lines down my face to look like claw marks. The key to using the rigid collodion properly is to wait for it to dry then add more layers on top of the previously dried section. After 2 or 3 layers your face should really look sunken in. Next I took a purple-rose color eyeshadow and put some color around the scar to make it look bruised.
Next, take a paintbrush and your bloody scab gel and start putting that in the creases over the rigid collodion. I like to bunch it up in some places and thin it out in others.
Once that’s all done apply your lipstick and your makeup is complete!
After that put your costume on and bask in the glory!!
I wore a belt from Fossil with some hunting knives looped in. My boots are from Fossil as well, and I love them. So much.
I wore all black underneath just to keep things simple, because I have a lot going on with the vest, cape and scars.
Well this is it for Fashion Friday Halloween edition! I hope you all had as much fun as I did! I hope you all have a fabulous Halloween tomorrow!!
