Tattoo Model

Recently we supplied some of our Prison and Vintage style Temporary Tattoos for a photo shoot and the results are pretty cool.

tat model1We were told that the model already had full sleeve tattoos but wanted to add Vintage hand tattoos for this specific shoot. The tattoos used were 2 different Vintage Swallows and a black and grey clown version of the Tragedy and Comedy tattoos.

All of these tattoos not only fitted very well with his existing tattoos but also suited being worn on the hands.

We love the positioning and think it’s pretty hard to tell the difference between our fake tattoos and the models real ones.

Moonstruck Effects ProFX Teeth

Lareth Moonstruck PRoFX Teeth

We finally got a chance to try out a pair of Moonstruck Effects ProFX Teeth and we have to say that we had loads of fun using them and they look great.

These are the Lareth over the lip style which has a section of gum that sits outside of the mouth giving the impression that part of your lip is missing.

The Moonstruck Effects teeth use Thermoplastic balls for fitting and these are not only easy to use but give a comfortable custom fit which can be re-moulded until you’re happy.

We added a little colour around the mouth and some Gel Blood where the missing lip is.

We have started stocking Moonstruck Effects Teeth on our website now and think these will be a big hit for Zombie characters and cosplay.

We hope you enjoy and leave us a comment and let us know what you think 🙂

Leto’s Joker is a modern take on the original

jokerThe picture of Jared Leto as The Joker in the upcoming Suicide Squad is getting a lot of attention and it seems mostly negative comments so far……It is true that this look is a very modern take on the beloved Batman villain and a huge change from the previous screen versions.

I do think it a little strange to compare this joker to the Tim Burton version and more recently the Heath Ledger Joker as both of those characters were meeting Batman for the first time unlike this version who has been fighting the Bat for years.

From a makeup stance we really like this version……It’s modern, edgy and we love the Tattoos.

We actually have a range of Big Mouth Tattoos (similar to Leto’s forearm) coming out this Halloween so stay tuned for those.

We’d love to know what you think of this new look……Are you a fan?
