Step 6: Finishing Touches: Hands and Makeup
Vinyl hands (we used ghoul hands)
Black witches nails
Silver cream makeup
Black glitter makeup
Green makeup crayon
Prosthetic nose and chin (we used a witch’s chin and werewolf nose)
Spirit gum and remover
For the hands, we purchased ghoul hands. We painted them with the stone paint. We wore black gloves underneath, with the hands just laying over the top of them, so we could still use our real hands. We glued the black witches nails on the hands as well, to match the feet.
Finally, we completed the costume with a fancy make-up job. We purchased prosthetic noses and chins, which we glued on with spirit gum. We painted our whole faces silver, and used special makeup stone paint to create patches of stone here and there on our faces. We added some black glitter over the stone makeup, to give it even more of a stone look. We drew green crayon circles around our eyes, and used black lipstick. And our gargoyle costumes were complete!
