I let my Discord decided what makeup look I would do, and Queen of Hearts ended up winning. So, I decided to pull inspiration from a few different places for this look. Those being: Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, Disney’s Alice in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, and the playing card for the Queen of Hearts. I think you’ll find subtle nods to each version in the look. From the color palette to the lips to the roses painted red to the drawn appearance of the card. I really like how the look turned out… and of course, it gave me an excuse to put on a crown and my favorite blood-red wig.
I’ve been really enjoying doing body painting lately or at least doing it once a week. That way I don’t get burnt out. This week I turned myself into Marvel’s Scarlet Witch from Wandavision. I love Wanda, she’s one of my favorite characters in the MCU. I let my Discord decide who I turned myself into and I’m really glad they went with this character. The other choices were: Deadpool, Spiderman, Captain Marvel, and Iron Man. Plus, I haven’t seen anyone else recreate this version of Scarlet Witch in body paint. The original? Sure. But this one? Nope. Maybe I’m wrong but I didn’t see any on a quick search. I mostly was trying to get a sense of how anyone else would do the headpiece, but I couldn’t find one that didn’t use an actual headpiece, so I winged it. And I have to say I love how this look turned out.
I let Discord choose which MadeYewLook body paint tutorial I should follow/recreate over on Twitch. Bloody Mary won, so this was the final result. The only thing edited in the photos is my eyes as I don’t have pure white contacts. The rest I did using body paint and eyeshadow.
This month I’m not really streaming as work is kind of hectic, but my goal is even if I don’t stream I’m still going to do the weekly theme. This week’s was Steampunk (which I picked) and I LOVE how this came out. I was going to have a corset that matched for a full body look… but I got the wrong size. So instead, I still have the shoulder piece on but made the leather collar out of body paint to go with the makeup look of cogs, gears, and clock pieces.
Hope you had a great week. My past week has been all over the place. I started reading Lightbringer again, then got distracted and started reading A Court of Mist and Fury. So, didn’t really have something that I wanted to chat about on the blog. But I thought I would share my makeup look for today (Caturday) on the blog. If you don’t know what Caturday is. It’s a Twitch Community Day I’m doing with some fellow streamers: Foxtail, Cassii, and Louise also known as Bunny. This week’s stream was Forest Creatures. So, I decided to become a Deershroom (a cross between a deer and mushroom as I couldn’t decide between the two).
Here is a look I did today. Joined some other streamers (Foxtail, Cassii, and Louise also known as Bunny) over on Twitch for a community event we’re calling Caturday. Where we each dress up to a specific theme then share the hype from one stream to the next. You should totally check them out as they are A-MAE-ZING! Absolute sweethearts that I love talking to regularly.
