Using Makeup Skills for a Headless Halloween

headless-makeup-1

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.

Who’s going to be to attempt headless makeup?

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
