A little background about this shoot; the character was inspired by various references - the Joker from Batman as well as characters such as the Japanese Oni and Chinese demons which fascinated me when I was a kid.
To put this all together, white and red face paint used in Chinese operas was applied with putty glued to my face to extend the grin on my face. The blood dripping off my smile was a mixture of edible sauces. The hair is definitely a wig though I wish I could have hair like that...
I'd usually shoot cosplays but every now and then we'd reverse roles with the cosplayers shooting me for a change Make-up and Hair :Photo :Lighting :Auxiliary photog / Support Crew :
