Encounters Beyond the Grave by gillykins Encounters Beyond the Grave by gillykins
You'd look slightly upset if you got bitten by your dead son :/

I managed to get this costume done in time for the Toronto Zombie walk 2010, the black lanterns we're out in force for Halloween. I wanted to play with a bit more 'gore' zombie makeup so I decided to do Robert's bite, which turns Donna into a Black Lantern. I'm actually really happy with how my makeup turned out. Eventually you'll get to see a full shot of this costume, I'll do real photos in this costume eventually. The costume and makeup are done entierly by me, once I get a full shot I'll load on the costruction info.

Sweet! How do you do that pale makeup effect? I'm doing a Mr. Freeze eventually and need some makeup pointers, being a dude and all. Thanks.

I used a Ben Nye MagiCake Aqua Paint which is a water activated face paint. I found that it was the best way to get a translucent coverage. I also used a white setting powder to set the makeup.

I saw this on another website and was simply amazed. Love those colored contacts! Was it a bit weird seeing through those? You did an awesome job on that bite too! I can only imagine the reactions you got from walking down the street :giggle:

I took this pic. :) Daily it gets hits on flickr from google searches of "Donna Troy" and "Sexy Zombie." It also gets stolen a lot. Great costume and execution.

Myself and a couple other photographers are looking to do a high concept cosplay/zombie/pinup shoot. Shoot me a PM either here or on my flickr if you're interested in more details. [link]

Great job on making your skin pale. What'd you use and how did you apply it? I'm going to a con as a black lantern this weekend and am trying to find out how to get the pale skin down right.

I used Ben Nye colour cake foundation in white, its a water activated face and body paint. I applied a light coat with makeup sponges and then set it with Ben Nye Natural set colourless face powder. Your going to want to add black/grey for contouring around your eyes, jaw and nose otherwise you look sort of funny and monotone. I just used black eyeshadow I had lying around.

Another option is what my friends did for their makeup, they used Ben Nye creme stick foundation in grey and set it with face powder as well.

Good luck with you Black Lantern costume ^_^

Thanks for the info. I ended up picking up some Ben Nye cream and set powder at a costume shop. I'll link an image of the finished costume after the weekend.

Your make-up looks great! It's not too overdone or too subtle... it has just the right amount of impact.
