tron 30th anniversary

 

Just a quick update. I will post some pictures up soon… I promise.

Despite the fact that pre-Halloween weekend celebrations were taking place all over in Hollywood, I decided to be a nerd and go to the Tron 30th Anniversary event at the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre. The wait outside was annoying but all and all, the event was a success. There were people in costumes, there was the Grid Carpet (as opposed to the red carpet), a panel with the film makers as well as Bruce Boxleitner (Tron/Alan Bradley), a mini exhibition of original Tron goodies and an after party upstairs with arcade games and DJs.

Ralph McQuarrie passes away at 82.

Ralph McQuarrie, the Conceptual Designer who brought R2-D2, C3PO, Darth Vader and Chewbacca into life in the visual form that we are most familiar with, passed away at the age of 82 on 3/3/2012 in his home in Berkeley, CA.

halloween zombie makeup

Last Sunday was the season premier of AMC series, “The Walking Dead”. That was the first episode I had watched but we were instantly hooked and inspired… for Halloween.
My friends and I were invited to a Pre-Halloween party appropriately entitled, “Night of the Living Dead”. So I did some research online for makeup tutorials to go all out, but without breaking the bank and having to make a trip down to a Halloween/costume store. I found the perfect video on YouTube: “The Walking Dead Zombie make-up tips for Halloween” by The Walking Dead’s very own special effects makeup artists.

 

After studying this video carefully, I went to Ralph’s supermarket to purchase unflavored gelatine (US$1.49), white cream makeup (US$0.74), and then to Walgreens pharmacy for basic halloween face paint kit (US$6.99) which came with 6-color palette, fake blood, blood spray, black & red grease crayons, etc. So in total, I spent less than $10 for more than enough makeup for four zombies. I think have enough left for another round! Try for yourself 🙂

**I could not find liquid latex, even at the beauty supply store in my neighborhood. If you really must, go to a costume store.
