Last weekend I celebrated Halloween with AREKU and SaSa, and we decided to have a half improvised photoshoot in our costumes. Since it was dark outside the lightning was pretty bad, so I decided to run with it and edit them in an old-fashioned manner.
I added some colour to the last one, since I felt like I did the picture more justice.
The idea to my costume was quite a process; At first I thought I just wanted to dress up like a noble, gothic lady. But then I played with the idea of having half of my face done perfectly, and the other one with open wounds and bruises. That made me think of a song by the band Ghost – Ghuleh / Zombie Queen, and that’s what I named my costume. Here’s a slightly clearer picture of my make up:
It was actually pretty easy to create – the clean side took longer than the zombie parts! I used liquid latex and face paint in red, purple, green and black to create different shades of the wounds. You should try it out yourselves, its a lot of fun! The necklace is from AREKU’s brand Sophistigance and the hat is handmade by me.
