Halloween: Chelsea Smile/Black Dahlia
Here's my second Halloween tutorial this year! I'm so excited about it because it's more my sort of thing being that it is on the more scary side.
I was so scared to record it because I afraid it would go wrong, and I wanted it to be perfect. I'm really happy with how it turned out, and I'm glad I kept poking with the scar wax to get it to look more realistic.
In the video I recommend a product called Rigid Collodion as a method of creating scars. It's literally a liquid that dries up on the skin and pulls it tight so it looks like actual scarring. This would make the job a lot quicker and easier because it doesn't need any skill at all! The method I use is a lot trickier, and creates more of a gross 3D wound, rather than a flat scar. It really is up to you which look you'd like to go for.
The actual Chelsea/Glasgow Smile part of this tutorial can be used for a range of different looks, whether it's Black Dahlia, The Joker, Slit Mouthed Woman, etc. You can also add as much or as little fake blood and gore as you want depending on how you want it to look. My tutorial was intended as a Black Dahlia look, but now I look at it, especially combined with my green hair colour, it could definitely be a female joker look.
