I was thinking the other day, every Halloween – and yes, I know it’s ages till Halloween – there’s always the same type of costumes. Sexy witch, sexy mummy, sexy dentist (wtaf), sexy pirate etc. The pirate one especially, always baffled me. Long months at sea, hard labour, poor rations, diseases and the occasional fist fight didn’t exactly lend themselves to a symmetrical, attractive face. Nothing says sexy like scurvy riddled teeth.
And yes, I get that it’s just for fun, but in that case, just for fun, I want to do a slightly more realistic look. Complete with sixteenth century dental. So if next halloween you feel like dressing up as Jacquotte Delahaye, or Anne Bonney, this tutorial should help you.
