Step 3: Add Some Red

Put some deep red on the ends of the strings to make them look like holes.. then pull some of that red up and out to give the look of irritation.

Step 4: Details

add some red on the inside of your lip, then take some blue and put it on the inside of the string and a little on your lip, then get some blood and have some fun!

I have been struck by the depth and breadth of your creativity across so many instructables. The looks are visually very powerful. Have you thought about developing looks that make a political statement ? My reaction to the stitched lips was this is the look of the voiceless victims of domestic violence, political repression,child abuse etc. Have you been able to monetize your work by developing makeup looks for photoshoots? Tshirts etc? I believe you aspire to theatrical sfx makeup. Im wondering if the other suggestions might be a viable means to that end. Cheers.

MsMaoMaoz (author)NeilRG2015-08-18

I have thought about many things along the lines of political statements. I just never was sure where to start. I'm sure some day soon I'll come up with something.

SOO awesome! Did not know what my next costume was going to be. Now I am stuck with this or 2 of the other alternatives you posted!

MsMaoMaoz (author)FOXXfilms2015-07-17

I'm glad you like them! =D

*shudders* This project is creepily awesome

hehe. =P

So many jokes one could offer about a woman having her mouth all stitched up... Hahaaa. But seriously, it is so interesting to see the transformation of your beautiful face into something that is scary, sci-fi or horrifying!

Don't listen to the negative comments... Your dreams are yours to make real. No matter what they may be... And you are right... A great part of Hollywood was built on talent like yours. Follow your dream, be creative... and someday you'll be bigger than you imagined!

MsMaoMaoz (author)Omarsibles2015-06-21

that was seriously very nice of you. =)

Omarsibles (author)MsMaoMaoz2015-06-22


MsMaoMaoz (author)Omarsibles2015-06-21

thank you very much!

diy_bloke (author)2015-06-21

well done.

on ModelMayhem i came across a shoot with a model who fo the shoot actually hadher lips stitched for real. That's carrying it a bit far for my taste, but your version looks great for Halloween or any spooky occasion :-)

MsMaoMaoz (author)diy_bloke2015-06-22

wow really? Now that's scary,

diy_bloke (author)MsMaoMaoz2015-06-22

yes it was

gravityisweak (author)2015-06-22

That looks incredible! I was wondering by looking at the main picture, how you made the string look so realistic. Until I saw that it was real string! It looks excellent. I would imagine it makes talking difficult though.

MsMaoMaoz (author)gravityisweak2015-06-22

haha that it does. thank you!

For someone as attractive and apparently intelligent as yourself you could contribute more to society if you left the macabre and took up something more wholesome. You have so much potential.

MsMaoMaoz (author)TomV42015-06-21

why? I enjoy what I do, as well as many others around me. sfx makeup is used in movies and shows, there is nothing wrong with that. I'm sorry if YOU don't like it, but I do. =)

TomV4 (author)MsMaoMaoz2015-06-22

I'll ask your forgiveness now, MsMaoMaoz. Maybe I'm just projecting my own regret for not contributing more to society. Everyone has acquired their own values, virtues and priorities. As long as only special effects blood is shed, I cannot fault you for pursuing something with passion. I'll still say, you have more potential influence than many due to your beauty and talent. Best regards.

MsMaoMaoz (author)TomV42015-06-22

There is no need to apologize. I personally respect everyone's opinion, but I believe everyone should also respect mine.

diy_bloke (author)TomV42015-06-21

and you TomV4 setting the standard of what is wholesome and what is not?
Nothing wrong with what she is doing. It is stuff like this that is used in movies.
I see a lot of potential too... and she is using it right here.
You are going to criticize other make-up instructables as well??

kode1303 (author)2015-06-20

Sorry, but there must be something wrong with you. Do you live in some sort of nightmare?

diy_bloke (author)kode13032015-06-21

There are plenty of Halloween instructables on this site with people making ghoulsih costumes or applying scare make up.
So why you suddenly have a problem with this instructable.
Sorry, but if there is anything wrong with someone, it is with you for criticising

MsMaoMaoz (author)kode13032015-06-21

No need to be rude, sir.

jdonato (author)2015-06-21

I couldn't agree more with Omarsibles. Instructables is full of all kinds of things that strike the fancy (or not) of so many. That is what makes it so interesting. You are clearly talented and should chase that talent wherever you would like.

It is really spooky.

MsMaoMaoz (author)jdonato2015-06-21

I agree! thank you!

MsMaoMaoz (author)2015-06-21

haha thank you!

fwonkas (author)2015-06-20

That is terrifying and awesome.

MsMaoMaoz (author)fwonkas2015-06-21

thank you!

mtairymd (author)2015-06-20

Wow! As with your other projects, this is amazing. Well done!

MsMaoMaoz (author)mtairymd2015-06-21

thank you!

jdonato (author)2015-06-20

This is a well done effect. So very realistic and a bit unsettling to see such a lovely person looking so tortured. Again, very well done.

MsMaoMaoz (author)jdonato2015-06-21

thank you!
