what are your thoughts? i know usually the blood is on the inside of the zipper, but thats too usual!

all i used was toilet paper and eye shadow and latex! a bit of lipstick, and some foundation if you want to be technical!

is there anything i should have done different? ( i know the photo quality is poor, bear with me)

Also try a bit of vaseline or moisturiser to make it look like it's starting to pus.

Nice job!

I think that adding a layer of KY Jelly to the more open 'wounds' (more effective and longer-lasting than Vaseline) will give it that squishy, juicy, gross rotting look. Don't smear it or you'll ruin your work, instead dab it on.

Great job! Agree about the KY Jelly for next time smile I especially like the spot by the lip where it's all crispy looking and peeling back.

KY dries a little too fast for my taste. It looks great but doesn't last very long for the price. My favorite alternative is to get tubs of hair gel from the dollar store. Very shiny, and while you have to reapply almost as much as KY... it only cost a dollar for a huge tub.
