    Glamglow facial mask beneath makeup??

    I was wondering how difficult it was to remove a whole face of makeup for my son... It sounds like a lot of washing and rubbing. So I see these peel off facial masks like glam glow and I wonder if one could apply makeup for Halloween over that and simply peel it off at the end of the day. Thanks

    Halloween latex/makeup questions

    Those are some great ideas to work from, thanks. The painters mask might not be allowed since the kids "can't wear anything covering their face." I'm not sure if they need to have a positive ID for these junior high kids while in the building....or if it for safety and being able to...

    Halloween latex/makeup questions

    Well my avatar picture shows his helmet that was disallowed. It is an elite alien from the video game Halo.....so this is what the makeup should look like....thanks I'm waiting to hear back if it was a safety/vision rule....or so that the student was easily identifiable.

    Halloween latex/makeup questions

    Hi, So my son's school changed the rules this year...nothing covering up the face "no masks." Wel he was going to wear a helmet that goes with the eva foam armor on his suit. So if we were to use makeup...and or latex (another skill I need to learn....yeee!) Is there a good place to buy latex...

    Thanks! I appreciate it. Yeah it was a bummer that I just finished the thigh pieces and then he broke his ankle in gym class, so I had to do some extra work putting clips on instead of just slipping on the piece. I had to leave off the knife too (school rules and all) and luckily the shotgun...

    Re: "Masternewbie's 2015 Halloween Costume Contest Entry" Rainy Halloween :-( I wanted outdoor "action" pictures but this was the best the weather would allow. My daughter was nice enough to stand in as an alien Elite (my son's costume last year) for the pictures... she...

    In summary: This was the last year for my son to have a halloween costume at school so I wanted to put forth the effort. The techniques I used were eva foam, some pep files for reference, vacu-forming PETg. heated eva foam, bondo filler and epsilon epoxy. I had wanted to do a vacu-formed...

    Lights....kids love lights, right? This is the ONLY benefit of using a vacuform table for me. At $10 a pop, this gauntlet was $20 and cleat PETg. I used .06 which was a bit too thick. I had "dollar store" lights inside the gauntlets that I had to remove from their casing to fit, then I...

    Finished down to the wire AGAIN! I was really nervous I would not have the costume finished. At about 4am, I decided everything else could be left out, except for the helmet. So the helmet had the last layer of bondo.....so sand, paint some filler and ....paint....starting at 4am! I was...
