To embrace Halloween to the fullest this year, I decided to do 10 days of Halloween makeup. To read about my process, read this post.
- Evil Witch: 7/10
- Pumpkin Skeleton: 3/10
- Tiger: 9/10
- Gold Cat: 8/10
- Rainbow Eye: 7/10
- Leopard: 5/10
- 70s: 10/10
- Blank Slate: 7/10
- Fox: 8/10
- Batman: 7/10
The theme of my batman look is underestimation. I underestimated:
- How difficult it would be to create a graphic Halloween look.
- The difficulty of a mostly black look.
- How obvious any errors would be because the logo is so famous.
- Myself and my attention to detail early on in the process.
- Black face paint and its ability to be removed and fixed.
- The potential for a finished look to pull everything together.
- The power of photography and good lighting.
I am proud of my Batman look. My Halloween makeup challenge was mostly to challenge myself and see how difficult of a makeup I could handle. Wow. From watching the video again to seeing the final images, I let myself down by not trusting the process. It looked crazy as I was working on it and some fixes needed to be made.
Now, once they are done, it is clear as day that this is a Batman look. Perhaps next year, I will have the confidence to take on one of the worlds that I truly love: Marvel or Avatar.
Batman was the most difficult look for me. Black is the hardest color to work with because it will show all of your mistakes. Doing a graphic logo that is so well-known also made this much harder. I am so proud of my final look and I rated it a 7/10 in the video. Looking back at it now, I was too hard on myself and I believe it deserves a 9/10.
With this being my 10th and final look of the series, I wanted added all of my ratings to the top. My total score is a 71/100 or about an average score of 7. My terrible Pumpkin Skeleton brought it down so much, but at least it is a passing grade (barely)! If we update to exclude my Pumpkin Skeleton and use my updated Batman score, I have a 77/90 or 7.8 average. Time allowing, next year, I am going to try this challenge (with different looks) again to see how much more I can improve.
Happy Halloween! Do not let today be the only day you creatively express yourself.
