I love this painting. Such a sense of longing.

I left the trademark that says “for personal purposes only,” because I imagine all of us have ultra-cute kitten purposes.

On the other hand, I see no earthly purpose for this:

So…extra crotch room for Chuck Norris style kicks was a selling point?

A turtle skeleton, just because.

Gore and shock value can be great for Halloween, but illusions are quite impressive in their own unique way.

Halloween Countdown: Body Electric

Posted in body decoration, halloween, makeup, undead with tags , , , on October 13, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

Believe it or not, Body Electric is the work of an “amateur bodypaintress.”

11873801_1605325673049873_9068940216483984676_n

These neon zombie vixens are some of the most eye catching body paint work I’ve ever seen.

Seriously, imagine showing up to a Halloween party painted Body Electric style. Who could look away?

This girl definitely has a bright (*groan* pun intended) future in body art, if she chooses! And I hope she does.

Halloween Countdown: Creepy Makeup

Posted in body decoration, halloween, horror, macabre, makeup, monsters, skulls and skeletons, undead with tags , , , , , , , on October 5, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

This is not your average Halloween makeup. Are you ready to see some stellar skills and masterful makeup illusions?

Creepy-Monster

The effect itself is great, and I imagine it must be extra surreal to see the human mouth talking within this design.
Screaming-Demon

Screaming-Harlequin-Girl

Brilliant use of an add-on prosthetic chin!
Terrifying-Zombie

Wow…

Posted in body decoration, day of the dead, halloween, makeup with tags , , , on October 25, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

Here is a different twist on traditional sugar skull makeup; a well done explosion of pink and plastic.

Anyone remember those plastic charm necklaces in the 80’s? Those were great. Just sayin’.

The handmade wig really makes this look.

Halloween Countdown: Extraordinary Face Painting

Posted in body decoration, halloween, makeup with tags , , on October 24, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

There is face painting, and there is total face transformation. Some artists are so skilled with costume makeup that they create elaborate optical illusions on the canvas of the human face.

Pumpkin-Zombie

Alice-Wonderland

It must take a great deal of patience (for the artist and model) to make these masterpieces happen.
Voodoo-Doll

Seashell-Cool

Cracked-Statue

Have you come across any incredible makeup this season? Have you painted your own face?
