Finally, I got around to filming something a little more cheerful than my latest set of videos. Ok, well maybe a culture/lifestyle built around the scraps of a destroyed world isn’t the most upbeat of subjects, but today I’ll be doing a more glamorized look of a post-apocalyptic steampunk look.
In the next few weeks I’ll be doing a part two to this look which will be more of an “anti-sexy” look, a lot like the anti-sexy pirate look I did a while ago. I get that some people will want to do the pretty, stylised versions of a look, and some people will want the thematically realistic look. This way you get the best of both.
If you haven’t seen it already I did a DIY video on earlier this week showing how to make the mask which you can see here. Speaking of props, I think I’m going to need to start selling a few on eBay soon. It’s amazing how quickly they’ve started to clutter my work space! As you probably know, I love making things like the horns or the masks for my videos, but there are only so many of them you can make before your home starts to look like a masquerade shop.
I’m actually a little too excited about filming the anti-sexy version. Especially since this one will involve doing severe radiation burns which I’ve been excited to try out for a long time now, along with what I call a greasy grungy eye. I know it sounds quite ugly, but that’s not the aim of my anti-sexy looks. I still want the characters to look human, I just don’t want them to look like a barbie.
