I’m so excited about today’s tutorial!! JEM! There’s a reason why Jem and the Holograms is so enduring despite being sort of lo-fi cheesy kids show: it was geared toward girls, everyone had cool hair and makeup, and cute boyfriends with cool names like Rio. Sure, the songs were really cheesy, But it’s for that reason that we still treasure it. It’s a classic 80′s Icon, and it makes a fab costume. But before I go on let’s get real- the Misfits songs really were better. Continue reading →
It’s pretty easy to guess the inspiration behind this tutorial: Pop Art & Comics! This was a lot of fun to do and to wear- it’s visually striking and if you forget you’re wearing it and pass by a mirror you’ll get a ”whoa” moment! The makeup is so iconic and recognizable that it makes a perfect cheap Halloween costume. There are so many options with this: Dots or no dots, You can wear clothes you already own, use makeup you already have, and you don’t even have to wear the wig, I just thought it was fun!

Hi Ghouls and Dolls. Or Guys and Ghouls. Or Ladies and Germs( what is this, a choose-your-own adventure greeting?) Here’s my final Halloween look for 2009, and It’s my personal favorite. I know I didn’t do much this Halloween, but I think everyone else about had it covered. I a HUGE zombie freak, as well as a HUGE Pin-Up freak, so this was combining two loves for me, which is nearly always a good time (chocolate and peanut butter anyone?)
I hope you guys enjoy this video, it was quite a labor of love. I edited for the first time in Sony Vegas (ok, that’s not entirely true. I made a makeup removal video for my Ghettoccino channel using Sony Vegas but all I did was crop like, 2 things and add a watermark. Big whoop). I also did video that was nearly all voice-over, another first. I think the end result turned out great, even if it took forever (a lot of that was just learning).
I’ve included a TON of pictures, I really love the way this turned out.
I forgot to mention this in the video, but I have yo give a shout-out to Candy, she’s the one who showed me I could use eyelash glue instead of Liquid Latex (and I could not find my Liquid Latex, so that advice came in handy!)
Next Halloween I will start taking requests early so I can do tons more Halloween videos for you guys!
