Sweet Spooks: “Plagued Doctor” SFX Makeup 

I have had the strangest bit of luck as of late. 😳 

First my knee gets smashed, and tonight I stepped outside for a few minutes only to have my foot stung by a very hateful bee! 

A bee! 🐝 

The only stinging creature I go out of my way to protect! 😦

It was my first bee sting! I’ve been stung by wasps but this was new. Suffice it to say, my left foot is swollen and my right knee is still healing. 😔

On the upside! I was able to do a new makeup inspired by the swollen little welt on top of my foot. ☺️

I imagine being a plague Doctor has its disadvantages… 💀

  
Catching the plague for one.☺️

  
This was a complete mess to put together and it really looked pretty gross by the end. I wish the wax had behaved better as I would have been able to paint the buboes a deeper black and feathered it out more. 

  
  
I used actual black slime for the drippy bits you see and for the black drippy bits on the mask. I made the mask myself with a blank plague Doctor mask from the craft store, some safety pins, and liquid latex as glue. ☺️

End result was good, and had I used more wax to make more blisters, I’m sure this would have been ultra disgusting! ☺️😂💀

Overall, only an hour of work and super simple to throw together. ☺️

  
So, what do you think? Gross? Effective? I do love your comments. 💜 also, I’m currently trying to come up with new ideas for makeup. I’m all ears if you’d like to tell me about what spooks you… ☺️🎃💀💜
