Cosplayer Ambrosia > Costume of The Witch from Left 4 Dead
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- After the Gaila Experience in hours of tedious body painting, I decided to make life easier on myself by airbrushing a bodysuit instead of having poor Carrie paint every inch of my skin in Ben Nye (made for much cleaner showers, too!) The ribbed tank top and ladybottoms were things I already owned that I just tea dyed and attacked with grime and scissors. At one point, that wig was Alice from Shadow Hearts, which was so ratty and horrible that it took very little help from me to make it even more ratty and horrible. Even though these photos are obviously shopped to look creepy and moody, I actually did wear red contacts! My fabulous manicure is thanks to some jewelry wire, red acrylic, and a big roll of packaging tape. My code name for the group was LaShawnda.
- Personal Thoughts:
- The best part about wearing really gross costumes is not having to constantly ask your friends if your hair and makeup looks okay. This was our friend Harry's first convention/costume EVER, so it was amazing fun getting him into the feel of posing for people and bullshitting around the hotel. He's the Smoker, Carrie is Boomer, Dave is Hunter. Oh, and the fake blood was supposed to taste like mint, but tasted more like a cocktail of liquid hand soap and butts. >:|
