So fortunate to be hired to do a live body painting demo for Drama Queen Makeup Academy and Town of Lashes this past weekend! I had a blast! Wanted to leave a little information about products and techniques in case anyone might be curious 😉
Here is how it turned out! I had a superrrr cute model to begin with so my job was easy as pie.
I did hair and makeup for this one. Very Rita Repulsa meets Dark Sea Witch…

Costume Designer, Genevieve Gantney made the black shell top that I adhered to the model using Spirit Gum. On top of that, I adhered some faux metallic pieces to make it more dramatic.
I watched these two videos and was super inspired to make the “jewelry” for the Merwitch. The first video is from Aodhamair. She makes some really cool costume jewelry from hot glue… AAND she has a free template download which is what I used 🙂
This video is from NsomniaksDream and she inspired the ear/fin jewelry! I used the hot glue technique from Aodhamair instead of wire and it worked!
