  11. Some recent make-up attempts...

    I'm pretty new at doing major make-ups with special affects, but here are two of my attempts on my boyfriend. Chucky and Billy the Puppet, with Annabelle. I used mostly eye shadows, with Halloween face paint. I did use rigid collodion for the scars on Chucky.

    This is my Halloween makeup from 1991. This was for a Halloween party in Encino at the home of a makeup artist friend that I worked with on TV shows and things. This is mostly a prosthetic face, of foam latex appliances, including a rubber mouth and lips. If you look closely, you can see my...
