HORROR MANGA MAKE-UP FOR HALLOWEEN

Halloween is this weekend, so I have to ask... is anyone thinking about dressing up as anything horror-manga related? If so, I want to provide this still awesome tutorial on horror manga make-up! I've posted it every Halloween since we started :)





I remember in a previous year, reader Jaclyn dressed up as Umezz himself. If you decide to dress up, post a comment here and pic-- I'll send a copy of MY SEAT IF YOUR BEHIND to anyone who happens to share a horror manga-related costume, and a copy of EA2 to the best one if a bunch of folks post stuff.

BTW, The best indie comics costume I've ever seen was someone as Scissor Sniper from Kazimir Strzepek's The Mourning Star. I will try to track down a photograph. Does anyone have any favorites they have seen?

Not horror manga, but I'm going to a Halloween party in Kyoto as Tomodachi from 20th Century Boys.

@jaclyn: That's awesome!!! I love that you did the photos

@johnny: dude, FRIEND is a brilliant costume!

@ryan - I tried to find the other mask he wears (as a kid, on New Year's, etc) so I'd have something to change to if I want more than 30% visibility, but I decided that compromise is for pussies.

Also I couldn't find it anywhere.

We look kind of 'special' but it was fun anyway!

This is kind of obscure, but I took this Suehiro Maruo image:

and made this costume:

Too bad I didn't have a female companion to complete the duo, but I think it turned out pretty well regardless.
