Hunter Make-up Tutorial

Since Halloween is rapidly approaching, I think it's about time to reveal the secrets of my Hunter-make-up to you, my fellow zombies.

So, first things first:

What do you need/what did I use?

  1. Prepare your anus face by washing it. If you want the plastic part of the make-up to hold reallyreally well, you can clean the area it's applied to with some spirit gum remover but don't go too close to the eyes and be careful. Seriously, there are things that might be worth getting blind for but this is not one of them.
  2. Apply some mastix around the eye-socket. Spare the eyebrows. Put some cotton wool onto the mastix. Congrats, you now look super-retarded. But this is the base for our soft putty. As soon as it sticks, rip off most parts of the wool so there are only some few fibres.
  3. Now this is the part where things get dirteeh. Make sure you're locked away in the bathroom with no parents or roommates noticing the mess you're about to make. They might get angry.
  4. Take some of the soft putty and knead it thoroughly so it fits its name. SOFT putty. Apply it to those areas of your face that look retarded- whoops no not all over your face I meant where you put the wool. Around the eye-area, but not touching the eyelids. As I said yet, this is messy and it's no fun and it sucks. But it's a neccessary evil.
  5. Wondered why you can't apply it smoothly? This is what we got our dear sweet baby oil for. Seriously that stuff's the best thing that yould have happened to you in this situation. I hope you really got it here. I TOLD YOU DAWG. So, you take a bit baby oil and rub it over the putty on your face. Oooooh miracles, that stuff is really getting somewhere close to smooth! Smoothen everything out with baby oil, so there is a soft gradation from your skin to the soft putty.
  6. Now you can destroy your new face. Take the spatula and poke around in your newly gained skin, starting in the middle of the applied putty, so the edges remain smooth and need. It should look like it's your skin torn open, remember??
  7. If you have this finished, you take some transparent powder and powder the fuck out of the putty. Poof Poof bitches. Powder everywhere. Another reason why to lock everyone out of the bathroom.
  8. Now we get down to business. Put some skin cream on your face and let your skin absorb it so the grease paint can be applied smoothly.
  9. Take your corpse-skintone and a sponge, put some water on the sponge and paint your face, neck and the smooth part of the putty corpse (that's a color now). It works the best if you only dap the sponge to your skin and don't smear it all over.
  10. You think you look really unhealthy now? Nope, you don't. You just look like a person with an eyedisease and a bad skintone. I'll tell you how to look really unhealthy. Mix a shadow-color. I normally use the corpse-tone as a base and then put in small amounts of green, blue and black.
  11. Put these on as shadows, like under your nose, under your lips, under your cheekbones on the sides of your nose, the sides of your skull, under your eyes onto the flat part of the putty- and create an even gradation from corpse to shadowcorpse.
  12. This looks worse and by worse I mean better. Now you need some lights. I normally use the highlights to add a bit of pink, as the last leftovers of blood in the skin, but really, don't use too much pink in the mix that will look like "UGUUU KUWAII ZOMBIECHAN DESU NE". So be careful with that, or only mix white and yellow into the corpse tone.
  13. Put the lights on the bridge and tip of your nose, tip of your chin and forehead, cheekbones, the higher parts of the putty.
  14. Take the small brush and mix some blue and red and green + corpse to draw some finer veins. for me thats the part that is the most fun. Add shadows beneath the veins.
  15. Now you mix the color for the eyewounds. There is one thing that's important: Never use pure red or only red+black. You should mix red with a bit of blue to have the color of a rose and then you put a a bit of black in the mix until it's a nice and gorey color. Think of raw steaks or something.
  16. Take the cat-tongue brush to paint your eyelids and the raw part of the putty with it.
  17. Blend some black in the current tone you got and you can create shadows. Put it into the edges and deeper parts of the wounds you have created and around the eyelids.
  18. Take a gross yellowish tone to add a fat layer where the "skin is ripped open". This is of you want to be really anatomically correct.
  19. blend your flesh-colored tone with white and add some highlights to the higher parts of your "wounds". Niiice they're finished now!
  20. Now you can decide whether you really want the Hunter's rapist beard. If yes, mix a very dark grey and a bright grey. Dap the stipple sponge in both of them and test the color on your arm. Okay stubbles? then put it in your face and the neck area. Take the pic of a bearded man as a reference.
  21. When this is done, you take the powder brush and powder transparent powder over it. DAP the sponge onto your skin. Don't smear the make-up!
  22. Take some fake blood onto your hand and dap a bit of it onto the wounds, without getting it in the eyes. Don't use too much or you will look like the douchy blood-crying lead-singer of a completely horrible gothic band. Some can flow to the sides that's okay, but don't use too much of it!
  23. Apply a bit to your lips, so they look a little ripped open or like you just had dinner. Don't use it as lipstick. Don't make the typical animu-deathscene line of blood running down from the corner of your mouth to your chin. Even put some around the nostril, I think that looks super-badass.
  24. FINISHED! Now if you're a really badass dude you can chew on a blood capsule and blood-drool everywhere.

And this is how it looks in practice

I had to have emergency surgery this weekend to remove my appendix, so not only did I miss HeroesCon but I'm also on forced bed rest for the next little while. That means I had lots of time to write up some tips for cosplayers to prepare for a convention.

Tips on how to safely navigate a convention as a cosplayer - Part 1

Part 2 will be posted later this week, so check back soon!

gemstone tutorial

Wed Jan 2, 2013, 12:32 PM
◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊ :facebook: Naraku on Facebook ◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊

How difficult it always is, to get stones for a costume in the right color, size and shape.

That's why I uploaded this tutorial today: How to make gems.


How to work step by step:


What materials do you need:

- resin and hardener
- tinting paint
- cups and spoons/ chopsticks to stir
- maybe a scale
- silicone mold for/ of stones (I bought it on etsy)
- aluminium foil
- scissors


~ Note:
With water I could find out how much resin I needed later.
For more quantities, you can mark a line with a pencil on the cup. ~

For my stone I need only 1 tablespoon of resin (= 8g)
For more quantities the weight is important. See step 3


To get some colorful stones you can use tinting paint. I use a simple green color.
Sometimes you need one or two colortests to get the right mixture ratio.

For a beautiful transparent green I need a half-drop.
Mixing the tinting paint with the resin thoroughly.

When you are finished you can add the hardener. For the stone, it was about 10 drops.
Each resin has a guide with a resin-hardener mixture ratio. For more quantities, you can calculate out at the scale of how much you need to mix hardener based on the weight.  Otherwise, simply by touch.
Mix it again now.


Pour everything in the mold of your choice. With the spoon you can get every last drop out of the cup.

Tip: if you have too much resin in the cup, pour it into a second form. So all is well used.


Cut out the foil a rough shape of the stone. Something bigger than the stone itself!
And put it on it.

Now just wait until everything is fixed.
Tip: A warm place speed up the drying.


In approximately less than an hour the stone should be completely dry.
Take it out of the mold. If it is still a little sicky dry it with a hair dryer. Wait 5 minutes and cut the excess foil.

The stone is done ❤

Cosplay Friday: Avengers

Fri Jan 23, 2015, 5:46 PM

The Avengers

First introduced by Marvel in 1963, The Avengers was Jack Kirby and Stan Lee’s superheroic response to the success of DC Comics’ Justice League of America.

In the original comic the founders of the superhero team were Thor, Iron Man, Hulk, Ant–Man, and The Wasp who came together to defeat the evil god Loki. The 2012 live–action Avengers movie loosely based on Marvel’s The Ultimates (2002) comic book series had a different core group adding Captain America and Nick Fury to the team and replacing Ant–Man and The Wasp with Hawkeye and Black Widow.

So, Who Are The Avengers?

Unlike other Marvel teams The Avengers are not mutants fighting for equal rights or a family of Four who met with unexpected effects after a mission in space. The movie version of The Avengers is a government sponsored elite team of skilled warriors, a Super SWAT team led by S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Nick Fury, while in the comics Tony Stark housed and funded the team while secretly hiding his identity as Iron Man from his teammates.

The comic world of Marvel has many twists and turns, filled with crossovers, gender swaps, and alternate timelines that aren’t always explained or don’t make it into the movie adaptations. Comic fans usually have a one up on movie fans in terms of knowing more about the characters’ origins and their backgrounds. Did you you know Nick Fury was originally white when he was first introduced in the comics and only later was he portrayed as black in an alternate timeline of The Avengers where the group is called The Ultimates as part of Marvel’s Ultimate Comics line? This change was made by the creative team of writer Mark Millar and artist Bryan Hitch, who even drew Nick Fury as Samuel L Jackson years before the movie was cast.

Classified Information: Level 7 Access Only

Nick Fury may not have super powers, but he can hold his own as one of the best military commanders of World War II where he originally met and befriended Captain America in the comics. In the comics Sgt. Nick Fury led his squad, the Howling Commandos, through Europe to Germany. After a lifetime in the military he was recruited by Tony Stark to run the newly created government super agency S.H.I.E.L.D.

Captain America was previously the leader of another military super–team known as The Invaders during WWII. He gained his power as part of an experiment by Professor Erskine to create an army of super–soldiers, but Erskine was assassinated during the experiment, making Steve Rogers the only one. He later received his circular indestructible shield as a gift from President Roosevelt.

Speaking of weapons, we all know Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir, can only be wielded by those “worthy” enough and in the movie the only one to even come close to making it budge is the original boy scout, Captain America. However in the comics the hammer can actually be wielded by other superheroes including Captain America, X-Mens’ Rogue, DC Comics’ Wonder Woman and Superman, and even Loki.

Not to be left behind in the weapons department is Tony Stark whose character was based on inventor, adventurer, multi–billionaire, ladies’ man and eventual recluse Howard Hughes. It was Iron Man’s co–creator Don Heck who modeled playboy industrialist Tony Stark’s look on Robin Hood (1938) actor Errol Flynn. When Stark dons his fully powered Iron Man suit he can lift up to 100 Tons almost the same as the Hulk, only as we now know, the angrier Hulk gets the stronger he gets, so Hulk will ultimately be the strongest.

There are a few team members who have murkier pasts. Hawkeye wasn’t always the hero we know him to be now. Clint Barton as he was originally known started out as a circus performer which is where he refined his archery skills. Eventually breaking off from the circus and going on to call himself “Hawkeye” he went down the dark path of being a villain before being inspired by Iron Man to become a superhero.

No stranger to shades of grey is the deadly Natasha Romanoff. One of the world’s best spies and assassins, she was originally a member of the Russian KGB where her ruthless effectiveness earned her code name “Black Widow.” Her threat to global security made her a target for S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Barton, who was sent to assassinate Black Widow recognized her skill and disobeyed orders recommending her as an agent instead.

Last, but not least, the Hulk. Who contrary to popular belief did not start out as a big green monster. In the comics, the Hulk’s appearance caused great difficulties for colorist Stan Goldberg who couldn’t get the right shades of grey for the Mr. Hyde side of Bruce Banner which lead to him being green in a few panels. Ultimately Stan Lee and Jack Kirby decided to keep the green coloring to make Goldberg’s job a little bit easier.

While you may not see superheroes running around on a daily basis like in the movies you might very well run into them at a comic convention. We’ve rounded up our own recruits to join the ranks of the cosplay elite.

Now grab some shawarma and check out the action–packed Avengers we’ve assembled for this edition of Cosplay Friday.

First introduced by Marvel in 1963, The Avengers was Jack Kirby and Stan Lee’s superheroic response to the success of DC Comics’ Justice League of America. In the original comic the founders of the superhero team were Thor, Iron Man, Hulk, Ant-Man, and The Wasp who came together to defeat the evil god Loki.

Happy Spring

Journal Entry: Sat Apr 7, 2012, 2:53 PM
Hi all! :wave:

Thought it might be time for a little update. :aww:

First of all I would like to apologize for not being able to reply on all your lovely comments and artworks right away. I'm writing my Masters thesis at the moment and spend a lot of time in the laboratory and I find it more and more difficult to keep up with all the messages I'm receiving. I'm afraid I may not be able to answer every comment in the future… :no:  But I want you to know that your messages mean the world to me!! I love all your support and interest in my work. It's truly all of you who inspire me to do what I do and I deeply appreciate every single message. :heart: You guys are awesome! :tighthug:
I will of course always answer my notes and write comments to works made from my stock. :thanks:

Because of my school it has also been difficult to find time to make new stocks the last couple of months, and when I finally had the time it was always bad weather!
But now spring is here and I finally made two new stocks for you guys! They're almost ready and I'm submitting them very soon. I hope you will like them! :meow: We had a lot of fun making these stocks and I hope you will have just as much fun working with them. :aww: I'm soooooo excited to see what you will create from them!! :la:
I have so many ideas for new stocks that I can barely keep them all in my head! ;P I can't wait to bring the ideas to life! :happybounce:

Happy spring to all of you, my dear friends!

Lots of hugs :heart:

Some great uses of my stock:
