Makeup Test: Sally. by cupcake-rufflebutt Makeup Test: Sally. by cupcake-rufflebutt
For a change, I thought I'd upload a few in-progress or test shots of various costumes that, for one reason or another, have never been finished. Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas is a character that I first considered cosplaying just after I made my Corpse Bride costume in 2005. Over the years I've done makeup tests, picked out a wig and shoes, and even sketched out the patterns on her dress, but the project has always sat on the back burner. One of these days I'll get around to her, but until then, here is a VERY old makeup test I did back in June 2006. I can't recall my exact supplies, but they were minimal: A white cream base [probably Mehron], blue eye shadow, black liquid eyeliner, lipstick, and some fake eyelashes. I think if I were to do this now, I would go to the extent of adding fake stitching.

Please no critiques/criticism. I'd like to keep this gallery happy! <3

Thanks! This is a really old makeup test, though. You should take a glance through some of my newer uploads of the full costume. I tried to make a point of using faded, murky colours, like those seen in the movie.

oh yes! Those are perfect to Sally. This one though, it doesn't even have to be Sally, I love the colors.

Thank you for your comment, though there was no need to be critical. This image is over 6 years old and was a makeup "test" -- something I did in a matter of minutes with very minimal supplies on hand. It was hardly something I intended to be taken seriously.

This image is about 6 years old at this point and was a makeup "test." I certainly could improve upon it now, but don't have the time to do so. Perhaps you could upload your own rendition of Sally's makeup?

this is gorgeus, but I would put some more black eyeliner to make the dark circles deeper

To quote my photo description: "Please no critiques/criticism. I'd like to keep this gallery happy!" Regardless, this makeup test was done five years ago and there are a million things I would correct if I were to do it today.

sorry -_- It wasn't my intention to be bitchy. I never thought it was a bad makeup though, just that I can't agree with the (succesful)experiment. Again, I'm truly sorry for being so out of line (I pictured it would come out quite less violent than it actually turned out)

Bitchin. Last Halloween I worked in a haunted house scaring people at the Queen Mary and I was a scary doll. I wish I would've had you to do my makeup. Your makeup looks badass, you did a stellar job.

Aw, thank you! That sounds like a job I couldn't handle, since I don't like scary things, even if I'm the one doing the scaring. ^__^;

When I lightened the photos to fix the poor lighting, the lipstick lost its colour. ^__^

Not a problem! Like I said, it's a very old picture. I was slightly embarassed to upload it. I'm working on several new costumes for Otakon, so there should be some new progress pictures coming, and I'll have photos of them after the con. ^__^

Thanks for obliging. This was a very rough makeup test, done in a hurry and with minimal supplies. It was also done three years ago, when I was just starting to cosplay and dabble in makeup. Definitely feel confident I could one-up this attempt nowadays.
