Donna The Dead


This is a photo from a makeup job I did on a friend of mine a few weeks ago. This is my friend in terror, Christel Edwards. Christel is a talented model and she is also a huge fan of horror. We got together to do this crazy skeleton makeup job, giving me a chance to spend some quality time doing makeup, rather than rushing through it like I had to do when working at Rocky Point Haunted House. Christel had her good friend Renee take a bunch of pro photos after the makeup was finished. Renee is submitting some of the shots to Getty Images, so we all benefited from the whole project. Not to mention, it was a ton of fun. The makeup took about 7 hours total. This photo is one that I took. I doctored it up in Photoshop by dropping in the background and adding the title. I came up with the title a few months ago when I was watching the remake of Dawn of the Dead on DVD. My youngest daughter Katie wandered into my room and asked what I was watching. I told her it was a scary movie called "Dawn of the Dead", but she misinterpreted what I said. She walked into the kitchen and told my wife that "Daddy is watching a scary movie about a girl called Donna the Dead"... we laughed about that one for quite a while! But the title certainly works well here. Whaddya think Christel? Maybe we should make a movie about this character?

That's a great make-up. I especially love the neck, shoulders, & chest skeleton. Did you do her arms as well, or was it just for the headshot?

It's very effective.

Thanks rozum- I actually painted her arms, hands, feet and legs as well. I need to post some more photos once I get them from the pro photographer.

Compared to the Mac - Book Professional especially, it has the slow processor.

This feature adds more digital camera ratings and is perfect for professional nature photographers who want
to take photos with no artificial lighting.

The increased features of the camera in fact, justify the price hike.

Even though there are only 19 focal points, as opposed to Nikon's 39, the quality is still unparalleled. All in all this is a great digital camera to have if you're looking to take high
speed quality pictures or movies. But there are only
a few that put out top quality cameras.

Super AMOLED Plus is significant enhancement from Super
AMOLED (the initial generation of Galaxy S).
This battery really surprised me with how much work I could get done
in a single day. In appearance, Samsung Galaxy Note 2 takes some
design riffs from the S3, which feels crystal clear.
