I think this is completely off topic because it doesn't relate to cosplay in the least (unless fixing masks and making monsters of regular people counts?) but actually a job I really
My friend works for a giant haunted house in our area. I freaking love makeup, though its more editorial than wearable (I bleed confidence in terms of my makeup). Knowing this, she's offered to talk to the head of the haunt's makeup team and he's asked to see my work I've done at home. I don't really know what counts and what doesn't though!
A Google search did nothing but bring up schools (meh...) and SFX brands. Not that helpful. I need to know, what is special effects makeup considered? More accurately, what would be in that field? I haven't done prosthetics (I'm too poor for Pros-Aide, Rigid Collodion, etc) but I did make a nasty wound with lash adhesive, liquid lipstick and gloss.
That was during class in school, so obviously not appropriate.
I'm going to try out bruises soon enough, so I have more to show and try to use lash adhesive & tissue paper (a pretty well known trick) to make a scar/wound.
