Beauty's Frail Mask by Acid-PopTart Beauty's Frail Mask by Acid-PopTart
We all wear masks. Eventually some will fade, rot, deteriorate and our true nature will be revealed.

Beauty is only skin deep after all.

Very good - She really does look like she's breaking, and a very nice angle

I love that the cracks are make-up, not post-processing.

Sorry to disappoint but the cracks are digital, Laura is just really good. Earlier shots from this set are up with no cracks. That's why I figured to note Laura as "digital artist", she's really good at this.

That's oddly clever. It would have been easy to make the cracks look like "real" cracks digitally, but making them look like they are make-up and not digital at all is remarkable.

I agree! I was pretty astounded when she sent the edit to me! Laura has gotten remarkably skilled, some of her manipulations are undetectable. I mean, as photoshop. :heart:

:jawdrop: wow this is absolutely amazing!! about how many hours did it take to put that all together?

Acid-PopTart Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2009
Thank you. Um, not sure of what you're implying we put together - my make up and hair I think took about an hour maybe, that's about normal. I was a bit sloppy, so if I took longer I could have been better - that's why I love how a make up artist on set now. The cracks are all Laura's work, her digital artistry at it's best. Not sure how long it took her though. This is from an earlier set I posted: [link]

:) my phrasing of my question was pretty poor... i did mean how long it took for the hair and makeup cuz it looks pretty complicated. i've heard of movie actors sitting in makeup for hours before shooting scene... i'd never have the patience for that... i can barely sit still for 10 minutes. ;)

Heh! Yes, hair and make up can take forever, especially if there is sfx stuff involved. I've gotten pretty use to sitting still for these things. I'm pretty sure on this go around, it took me roughly an hour to get the make up and hair done - probably fighting with fake lashes took the longest!

Absolutely stunning! :) The comments you wrote on it is quite true as well! Just wondering but are the crack marks the result of a hand that is skilled with a make-up pencil or is it photo shopped?

Thank you kindly! The cracks are all from Laura's skill hand in photoshop. This came from an earlier set I posted : [link]

I just saw those pics and they're amazing! I'm wondering but is the wire around your head have any significant meaning to your character or is it just part of the costume?
Reply
:iconacid-poptart:
Acid-PopTart Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2009
I think the wire was an element sitting in the studio and we were like 'we need something else, I've got some wire'. Which is much better than when we decide something is missing and we go "hey, there's that creepy stuffed boar's head at the Haunt, should we get that?"

:D

Thanks!

:lmao:!! The boar's head would would in a slaughter house shoot but not real well for this series!:XD: The wire however was an excellent touch!

I do have a question: Does VooDoo Baby plan on making another appearance?

A very stunning statement and poignant emotive effect. The wire is a very effective addition. It projects the feeling to me that the Lady has been reduced to the status of a simply porcelain, decorative plate that people hang on wall in a wire holder. Now, there has been some upheaval and the eye entertainment lies broken and askew in her frame on the floor, perhaps she was employed as a projectile between adversaries of a fight and after her final fall, off to the dust bin of broken beauty history to be replaced by beauty intact.
