A Creepy Coraline Other Mother Makeup Transformation
Costume designer Manuel D’Andrea goes all out with his makeup and costumes, as we’ve seen with his Hocus Pocus Winifred Sanderson ensemble. For one of his latest transformations, he turned himself into the Other Mother from Coraline. The creepy character is from another realm of sorts and has button eyes. Manuel replicated her hair and makeup for this costume. He explained:
As always I covered my eyebrows and re-draw them to give a cartoon effect, contoured my face with cream and powder colors and styled the wig following exactly the same shapes of the character in the movie but adapting them to my head.
The nose is a latex prosthetic I previously sculpted on my plaster nose replica and then moulded with silicone (to create the final prosthetic).
And if you’re wondering, he can see through holes in the buttons because of how they’re positioned.
