Artist Ailish Octigan used her painting talents to create a Halloween look people won’t be forgetting anytime soon. She used a basic face paint palette with six colors to make it look like she had a floating head. She crafted the illusion at just the right angle to make viewers or passersby to a double-take. Octigan explained on Twitter that she “I started with a red oval about halfway up my neck then filled above that to my jawline with black facepaint.” The detached head effect looks solid from above, underneath, and even at 3/4 profile, but Octigan said a side view isn’t ideal to sell the look.
