This is my Makeup / FX created from scratch for the character of Angelique from the movie Hellraiser Bloodline.
I made this using stuff I had laying around at home and some supplies I collected whilst doing (or trying to do) basic special FX. I used materials such as cotton, toilet paper, latex and paint cause I also enjoy doing crafts at home to relax and I thought this would be an easier way to create something without having to invest a ton of money.
- liquid latex
- a clear glass to work on
- toilet paper
- cold porcelain
- acrylic paint in red, beige, brown and black
- clear minwax
- cotton and latex paste (equal parts of both)
- rubber elastics
- silver nailpolish
- glue stick
- flesh coloured powder
- black eyeshadow makeup
- contour palette makeup
- water activated paint for bodypainting
- fake eyelashes
- crimson lipstick
- pros aide
Step 1: Make the Shoulder Pieces
Using cotton and latex I made the desired shapes for the shoulders. Then painted them with acrylic paint.
Step 2: Make the Fake Wire
Since movility is a big issue with this costume, I decided to use rubber elastics so I could move my head freely.
I coated each string of rubber elastic with silver nailpolish so they would look like wire and let it dry overnight.
Step 3: Do Your Makeup and Be Sure to Block Out Your Eyebrows
I blocked mine using glue stick and coats of flesh coloured powder. If your eyebrows are way to dark or thick you should try using a orange based concealer after your apply the first coat of glue stick. It will block the color off.
Add as many layers as you need by repeating the process.
I used water activated body paint to make the top. It will look shiny as if you wore latex. I also wore a black top to cover my boobs obviously cause I´m a prude (gotta cover them girls).
Finished off my face with dark eyeshadow, a bit of contour , fake eyelashes and crimson lips.
Step 4: Attach the Pieces to Yourself and You Are Done!
I wore the bald cap, attached the head piece to the bald cap using a special fx glue called pros aide and attached the shoulder pieces to my shoulders. To attach the fake wires to the latex pieces I made I previously punched some holes on them and just connected them with little knots.
You can paint the rest of the gory details with the same water activated fx paint.
Now you are ready to spook everyone!
