Unicorn special fx makeup tutorial

By  | 

The rock’n’roll unicorn from the 1980s just dropped in to say hi!

In this episode we do a revisit to one of our earlier creations – the unicorn. However, this time it’s a lot less fluff and sweetness, and way more rock’n’roll. We have thrown out the flirt with my little pony and focused on an evil looking unicorn as can be seen by that insane blade shaped horn. Of course you are free to shape your horn anyway you like, but if you decide to go with something like this, make sure you don’t run around and hug people.

One extra cool thing with this evil unicorn is that we are using a pair of old sun glasses for the eyes. This gives a really raw look and you can see perfectly through them. The rest of the construction is made from aluminium foil and latex paste. The foil makes up the innards and keeps the mask pretty light weight even though it’s big.

If you want to make a more soft and cut version of a unicorn please check out our My Little Unicorn tutorial which as the name suggests is flirting more with My Little Pony than an 80s rockstar artist.
