So, Halloween is approaching fast, and I thought this would be good time to share my “realistic zombie” -look I did for Finnish roleplay convention called Ropecon.
Warning, images might be disturbing!
First some photos of the look:

How did I do it?
The idea for the zombie mask came when I found the website called Nimba Creations:
Then came The Day of Ropecon (:D) and I applied the jaw for the first time (they aren’t really re-usable, so there’s no testing them unless you buy more than one).
Turns out my facial features didn’t quite match the prosthetic. I guess my lower lip was a bit too plumpy and there was too much space left between prosthetic and jaw, so I couldn’t get the prosthetic to stick firmly.
Another huge problem was the gelatin blender that came with my order. I couldn’t get it to work at all so I was getting really desperate.
Finally I gave up with trying the blend the jaw, so I moved on to the sunken eyes.
I took Mehron’s 3D-gel (gelatin), and started to apply it around my eyes (first I added a ton of wax to my eyebrows):
And then the actual makeup. Grimas Crème makeup color 0A is a perfect color for dead zombie skin, so I used that on skin and various set of different eyeshadows to add depth and shadows:
Here’s a picture of my fingernails, because
devil zombie is still in the details:
Some if you may know that I collect Monster High dolls, and I started (mostly) a picture blog of MH dolls. You can find it here if you’re interested: http://mhjangsara.blogspot.fi/
