Chucky’s face is super important to his overall look especially after the third movie where he has permanent scars on his face stitched up with thread. You can either opt for a mask or do it yourself with makeup using this quick four minute video as a guide.
- Start out by mapping where you want your scars to be with rigid collodion, this makes indents in your skin where it’s applied (make sure you’re not putting it to close to your eyes). Go ahead and apply your foundation like you normally would then prime your lids.
- Lay down creamy purple shadow onto your eyelid for the base of a bruised black eye using black for extra depth. The artists takes red from her BHCosmetics palette and blend it around the eye area. Layering those three colors until you have a believable bruised look.Use a red shadow for your eyebrows to match your red hair.
- Now begin tracing your scars with black shadow, go over those lines with a red liner. After that used an angled brush to broaden each scar out for a grosser texture. Next add stage blood over your scars letting it drip down slightly. For Chucky’s stitches cut up black thread and apply it along your scars using lash glue. Add in Chucky’s freckles with a brown pencil. Finish off with your regular mascara and lashes.
There you have it, a completed Child’s Play costume perfect for Halloween! Take your girlfriend or wife along as your Bride and you’re all set for a fantastic October 31st.
