Q: Where did you get your wig?
A: My Finn made it for me. It was made out of two long wigs-- one 48 inch, one 60 inch. They were purchased on Ebay. I don't know the seller, sorry!
Q: How did you do the makeup?
A: It is Ben Nye Character Series cream makeup in Ghoul Grey (CB-8). It was applied using latex makeup sponges and sealed with Ben Nye Neutral Set Colorless Powder and hairspray. I do not recommend using hairspray unless you have someone helping you apply the makeup.
You can buy it here: http://www.frendsbeautysupplyonline.com/bennyecharacterbasecb-8ghoulgrey.aspx for only $3.40!
Q: How much makeup did you use?
A: Evicted! : Medium Coverage (face, neck, chest, shoulders, arms, hands)
Henchmen: Medium Coverage (face, neck, chest, shoulders, arms, hands)
It Came From the Nightosphere**: Minimum Coverage (face, neck, hands)

An Interview with *MordsithCaraAn Interview with *MordsithCara in Personal More Like This
I had the great pleasure of chatting with the very talented and beautiful *MordsithCara a few days ago. Her name is Chelsea and she's been gracing the pages of dA for 8 years running. I've been watching Chelsea with some interest over the past couple year especially, knowing her look would take-off and inspire others. Since only last summer, the sheer amount of imagery she's posted only demonstrates the dramatic increase in her modeling and creativity abilities. For that reason, I got up the courage to ask her for a short interview, and here it is! By the way, You can read more about Chelsea on dA (look for *MordsithCara) and at the links below. If you're a photog looking for an experienced and talented subject, catch her when she comes to your town. (She regularly posts her travel schedule.)

dG: "I'm drinking a cold Coca-Cola - what are you drinking?"
