Halloween Tutorial Series: Mad Scientist

Guys. guYS. GUYS. Today is the DAY. The very last day for the ultra spooky Halloween tutorials of 2017. We will have to wait another 334 days Halloween tutorials of 2018 commence. *insert ugly crying face* If only Halloween was year round, amiright???? THAT WOULD BE THE DREAM. Ya’ll know that I am a sucker for anything creepy and gory. Today’s look is a throwback to my college days. If you are new to these parts, you’ll be interested to know that I have a college degree in biochemistry. That means I spent hours….and hours…and HOURS in chemistry labs, blowing’ stuff up. Ok I didn’t blow stuff up ALL the time. Just some of the time. ๐Ÿ˜‰ So, for the grand finale of 2017 Halloween looks, I am doing a mad scientist (or me on an average day). Let’s do this.

Well. THERE YOU HAVE IT KIDS. My personal take on the mad science makeup for Halloween. This one is relatively easy to recreate and doesn’t require a whole lot of material to get it done.

If you don’t have latex, just some black + red paint will do the trick. It won’t look quite as realistic but you’ll mostly likely be at a dark party dancing the night away tomorrow so it’s doubtful if anyone would even be able to tell. ๐Ÿ˜€

I hope you liked this video and learned something cool today — it’s one of my favorite looks and as long as you’ve got a pair of cool goggles and a lab coat, you’re set.
