Zombie Pin Up Makeup (Pic Heavy)

Hi Ghouls and Dolls. Or Guys and Ghouls. Or Ladies and Germs( what is this, a choose-your-own adventure greeting?) Here’s my final Halloween look for 2009, and It’s my personal favorite. I know I didn’t do much this Halloween, but I think everyone else about had it covered. I a HUGE zombie freak, as well as a HUGE Pin-Up freak, so this was combining two loves for me, which is nearly always a good time (chocolate and peanut butter anyone?)

I hope you guys enjoy this video, it was quite a labor of love. I edited for the first time in Sony Vegas (ok, that’s not entirely true. I made a makeup removal video for my Ghettoccino channel using Sony Vegas but all I did was crop like, 2 things and add a watermark. Big whoop). I also did video that was nearly all voice-over, another first. I think the end result turned out great, even if it took forever (a lot of that was just learning).

I’ve included a TON of pictures, I really love the way this turned out.

I forgot to mention this in the video, but I have yo give a shout-out to Candy, she’s the one who showed me I could use eyelash glue instead of Liquid Latex (and I could not find my Liquid Latex, so that advice came in handy!)

Next Halloween I will start taking requests early so I can do tons more Halloween videos for you guys!

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old
    daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear
    and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell
