    Default Sith makeup

    I don't know how familiar you are with SFX makeup but majority of this is prosthetics. You can buy these at Halloween stores or online. You can also make your own with either silicone or latex.

    I agree, prosthetics are the way to go for this one. Probably a combination of different pieces since you're unlikely to find a single piece that matches.



    I'd suggest starting with a zombie prosthetic and bald cap, then add some horns and scars.

    I"m not big on making prosthetics so maybe IM can jump in on this.

    Can you take modeling clay to make the form, cover it in liquid latex. Remove the modeling clay, fill latex with soft cotton balls or something to help fill it out then apply to face as a make-shift prosthetic.

    Think that would work or just easier to piece together a face???
    Just a thought.

    You could do that, but the latex mask wouldn't carry much detail. If you sculpt the form, then mold it with plaster, you can brush in latex to make a mask. It will look like your sculpt, but it won't move like a prosthetic. You'd be stuck with one expression.
