Remi & Josh have kindly had me over to bodypaint them before their Halloween party for the last 2 years.
This year Josh went for a Fallen Angel look – I made wings on his back using freehand body glitter tattoos, and glued a range of types and sizes of feathers (peacock with no eyes, black-gold cockerel feathers, maribu fluff etc). I then made his face look a little hollowed out, added some quick tribal tattoos and sprayed him all over with a misting of metallics.
Remi had a rather snazzy ‘mummy’ suit, a stretchy ribbed looking bandage affair.
So I created a rotted flesh/ aged bandage look for his face using my usual face/ body paints.
This year Josh’s partner Michelle also joined in the fun. She had a cute ‘Doll’ outfit, sort of Bride of Chucky or Death Dolly or something (possible manga or gaming??). She wanted a stitched together look so I played with my favourite Grimas burgundy to make a slashed mouth and chest with crude stitches surrounded by sore-looking skin/ bruises.
She had some black contact lenses that I finished off with majorly OTT /cried-in mascara dripping down her cheeks.Their guests all make a real effort, from these photos they have kindly sent me.
Looks like a great welcome & a fab event!
And not a bad DIY look by the zombies Remi mummy is glaring at here:)
