The American Voodoo Zombi by InkyBrain The American Voodoo Zombi by InkyBrain
First and foremost, by no means do i consider myself a professional, or even a worthwhile amateur model. But when a familiar in the Orlando weirdos community requested a photoshoot focusing on one of my salad tossed costumes, i could not resist - mostly because i liked the idea of having some kind of picture record of this something i fell in love with making.

So here's one of many pictures a very talented photographer took of me in downtown Orlando, FL. I had a hard time making convincing due to my inexperience and camera shyness. But once he told me to start bending and twisting and creeping around, the mood seemed to be in the bag!

I had sooooooo much fun doing this, and the photographer gave me the OK to upload some of my favorites onto deviantART and Tumblr ( [link] ). I threw the outfit together and did the makeup myself, but there were only a few things i hand made.

I hand-stitched and studded the front and back crotch flaps, and altered the pants which was previously a skirt. Everything else were mere random purchases, including the military belt and suspenders. The dreadfalls were made by a friend of mine back in Jacksonville, who is INCREDIBLY talented and in the process of making me a second pair entirely of black and green strings and braids. So excited!

Enjoy my weirdness! If i had the patience to do this makeup every day, and the funding, i might leave the house like this on a daily basis. I just feel more comfortable looking batshit insane. lawl.

By the way, for all my makeup lovers out there...If you have a chance, buy the Maybelline gel eyeliner. It's AMAZING. It's incredibly inexpensive, stays on extremely well, and dries relatively quickly on the skin without drying in the tiny jar (which was what happened to the last gel makeup i bought). I used a very fine, flat, silky brush to do all the detailed black parts, and the lines came out so clean. I didn't having any smudging or clumping. Good stuff!!

Thank you! The first time i did this costume and makeup, i came out looking a lot dirtier, which i liked. I'll have to review the photos from that occasion to remember what i did...I'm obsessively improvising every time i do this stuff. LOL
