    Thanks Cloud.

    I am a monster. :D I'm trying to find something creepier for Halloween though. But this one just might have to be good enough!
    Or maybe I'll just do a more detailed one, like this;

    I think yours actually does look creepier!
    You have a very attractive skull, Stormy :D I've never said that to anyone before. It's kind of weird.

    That's because I'm a natural when it comes to creepy.

    Thank you for complementing my scull.

    That is absolutely amazing. I much prefer this to the other skull. Whenever I see this pic it reminds me of Robert E. Howard's story "Red Nails," which is the only Conan story that ever gave me nightmares.

    Yeah, I just ordered lots of black eyeliners so that I can try it someday. Haha.

    It does, that's what I like about it!

    Yeah it would probably be tricky. Patience and lots of mirrors might work?

    It does doesn't it!

    Thank you! And now I feel the need to take a look at that story.

    Red Nails on the US Gutenberg site

    Since REH died in 1936, his works are in the public domain almost everywhere on Earth. You're in Sweden, I believe? In Sweden, this has been in the public domain since 2006.

    If you have an e-book reader, download the appropriate file. If you don't have an e-book reader your best bet is likely to click on the HTML, then highlight the text, copy and paste into your word processor of choice. From there you can format as needed and either read it on screen or print it out.

    Enjoy.

    I have every confidence you can pull it off with flying colours!
    Personally, I hate working with face paint though. I've had to paint my kids' faces for halloween a few times and I find it really hard to work with. Perhaps that's because when I get it, it's the cheapie halloween stuff. :D

    Face paint is horrid! I use makeup in extreme colors instead when I'm doing things on the face... and then I spray it with hairspray (yes hairspray on this kind of makeup can work wonders.) and it's gonna stay on for an entire day. :D

    Cool idea with the hairspray! Makeup in extreme colours is a good idea too. Can you get white foundation though?

    First try 15 min try of the Abbadon makeup from spn. Didn't even have time to finish the lines etc. but I never do something for longer than 15 min when I try a new makeup.
    I just throw things on. Spilled a little bit too much red on me too. But oh well. I need real fake blood.

    Thank you!

    Well, put a decent amount of shading in the right places and you can make yourself look like anyone. :)
