Skeletor Halloween Multi Makeup Tutorial

By  | 

Time to visit the good old 80s with this multi-purpose Skeletor Halloween makeup tutorial.

In this episode we create almost like a blank skeleton look using liquid latex paste and a basic paint job. Then it’s up to you to create and make the most out of it. For those of you who really want to bring back the old Skeletor vibes from Masters of the universe, we suggest you go with a yellow paint job on the actual skull and go for a blueish tone on the rest of your body. Then you have a real flirt with the old cartoon classic from the 80s. You can also go for a more modern Skeletor look, like the one in the movie with Dolph Lundgren back in the day. In that case you stick with a white paint job and do the shading using black colours. Either way, this tutorial will give you a very good starting point.

If you are planning an even more classic horror look, like the grim reaper, all you need to do is get a fake scythe, put on a black hoodie and cape and you are the grim reaper. You might want to put on some silly skeleton hands to get the look right though. That goes for all three of them.

The look can be used as either a clean skeleton or a grim reaper. Change the white paint for yellow and this Skeletor Halloween makeup tutorial turns back the time to the good old 80s and the classic He-Man cartoon series.

    How long does latex paste usually take to dry because I recreated the skeleton prosthetic and it has been a day and it still has not dried in the inside?

    Can someone tell me if latex is somehow toxic? I bought this liquid latex from online and it kind of advices not to get too much of it to your skin and not to breathe the fumes of it or something like that. Should I be wearing some sort of gloves while molding it or is it still safe to use with bare hands?
    • Tsipahh

      10 months ago

      Yes! Thanks a lot for the answer :)
    • ellimacs sfx makeup

      10 months ago

      It's hard for us to know how each individual will react to their specific brand of latex. However, all latex contains ammonia, so you shouldn't sit and breath into the bottle, or work over it for long periods of time. It's irritating for both your eyes and your respiratory system. A well ventilated working area is important. As for your skin it shouldn't be any danger unless you're allergic, so try some on your hand to see if you react to it or if it's uncomfortable. There are so many various brands of latex out there so picking one with a low ammonia content might be wise, like Kryolan. If you apply a little lotion on your hands before working with the latex it should help to remove it. I hope that gives you some answers =)

    I tried making latex paste with flour the other day and it looked like the consistency you use, but it wasn't mold able at all. It just lumped up and dried super fast. Do you have a ratio that you follow or a different type of latex and flour that helps it not dry? :0
    • ellimacs sfx makeup

      10 months ago

      We wing the ratio every time :p, but we could try to do a more detailed recipe. But it sounds like you hade too much flour in your mix. Try adding a little at a time while stirring, and just add more until it feels ok =)
