Look: AVATAR [Halloween Costume]

Posted: October 30, 2010 in Dramatic, Looks

I understand that my costume was somewhat distracting in class today.  Some middle school kids at Starbucks asked to take a picture with me.  I thought that was pretty ballin’.

The makeup I used was a combination of cheap creme costume makeup from Walgreens and my normal cosmetics.  I’ve listed steps after the cut, so that may clarify things a bit

I made the ears out of blue Model Magic and foil and colored them with black Sharpie and pink blush.  I glued them to my temples/cheekbones with facial adhesive, which held up like magic!  The ears themselves are a little big, I know :]  It is also fairly more difficult to brush my hair with ears like that.

How long did it take you?
I woke up at about 6 and the whole getting ready process took me a little over an hour.  However, I did practice on Wednesday so that I would be prepared and not waste time this morning.

Outfit? Nails?
Shirt and pants both from Target.  Earrings from ICING, necklace from my grandma.  I painted my nails with Zoya Tallulah.

(from my trial run)

  1. Cover eyebrows with glue stick
  2. Apply your Na’vi ears to cheekbones/temples with facial adhesive
  3. Draw in guidelines with blue pencil eyeliner (Nose guidelines from eyebrow straight down to beginning of nostril flare; both sides, Forehead stripe markings extending from these lines; more forehead, cheekbone and chin stripe markings)
  4. Paint in carefully with blue crème makeup; leave out lips and eyelids
  5. Add highlights (Turquoise shimmer eye shadow and blush brush (top of cheekbones, nose bridge to forehead), White shimmer eye shadow with finger (sides of nose, brow bone, chin)
  6. Face and nose contour (Black eye shadow to blend out the boxy shape created for the nose (extend up to eyebrow)
  7. Copper lip liner to draw in underside of nose
  8. Add pink blush to cheeks and under nose.
  9. Yellow eyeshadow on the upper eye lid; paint lips as you choose
  10. Paint in dark stripes with navy blue liquid liner (incorporate eyebrows and eyeliner)
  11. Add white dots with champagne liquid liner
  12. Add false lashes
  13. Finish with green sparkles.

*note: my lips and hands/arms are kind of worn off since I took these photos after school and XC practice (about 12 hrs of wear, not bad eh?)*

Look! I’m Giant! Like the Na’vi!!!
