If you play in any kind of immersive LARP then you know creating a good look for your character really helps in the suspension of disbelief and story telling. A picture tells a thousand words and a well made up face goes way beyond that. I had a favourite character who was a Celtic chieften who’s face was tattooed and painted in complex spirals. These evolved over the years and when done well really said clearly who he was. It helped enormously.
The trouble with good makeup is that most of us don’t practice often enough so I’ve decided to create a series of tutorials for LARPBook. When I say create – I mean share from much more practised hands than mine.
Tonight is Halloween so lets start off with a Zombie Doll.
