Christmas Competition: Shopping Zombie

For my college Christmas competition I created a “Christmas Shopping Zombie” character and wanted to share the finished make-up with you here.

Christmas Shopping ZombieI used a few different techniques including prosthetics to complete the make-up.

It was really quite stressful but so worth it in the end. I didn’t get to finish everything I had wanted to add to the character in the allotted time but it came out pretty good nonetheless.

My completed zombie creation finished in second place in the competition with the help of my brilliant model Beth!

Second Prize!

Here we are with my tutor receiving my certificate and prize. Unfortunately you can’t quite see all my props here but inside her shopping bags are a brain I made from latex and similarly created severed hand!

 

I hope all of you are having a great holiday season and enjoying any time off work/school you have. Fingers crossed for 2017 huh?

Don’t worry if you don’t have either of those stores though as all three are available online via the Sleek website.

All of the palettes feature 12 pans in a range of seasonal shades. I have two of them here to show you and full swatches of both, I didn’t order the third (‘Nordic Skies’) as I didn’t think I would wear the paler more wintery shades in that one personally and I didn’t need them for my kit. Sorry!  Continue reading
