Hammering out my way through self-perception
Today I’m bringing you a selection of pictures from a project I made with a friend. Click on the images to enlarge them!
My first reaction to the top pics – “Hey, cool!” and a big grin, too. Never seen the makeup process. What do you use for the ‘tache and beard?
Hi, kittehserf, thank you for your comment!
I first draw them with eyeliner and then add natural hair (some from my own haircuts, but mainly from my compañero’s beard). I cut it into very, very short pieces, and it gives a very realistic effect.
For pasting it, I use a cosmetic glue called Mastic, not sure what it’s made of, but smells a lot like wax.
Very cool step by step images, thanks for sharing!
Thank you, Puddleglum!
My intention is to make a step-by-step tutorial based on his photo series, although it will take me some time to actually complete it.
Looking forward to it!
Howdy Luzbelitx! Love the pics, but let me be overconcerned uncle Rogay for a minute. You’ve likely already heard it before, but please be very careful with Ace bandages! I’ve known folks who hurt their ribs and tore chest muscles with it; they can be dangerous, yo. If at all possible, I really recommend you getting a good binder that doesn’t put your ribcage at risk. It doesn’t have to be a huge expense, and it’s a lot safer for your body.
Here’s a good post on binders, what to look for, and what’s out there. I don’t know if you can get underworks in your country, but I know a lot of people swear by them. (I, unfortunately, was of a body type where binders were basically a lost cause.) T-Kingdom I’ve also heard good things about.
Hi overconcerned uncle Rogay, thank you A LOT for the heads up!
I rarely bind, but I would hate to promote dangerous and/or unhealthy practices (or, you know, practise them)
I’ll be doing some research to see what options for binders I can find close to home, and I’ll most likely will be posing about it in the future (probably as part of a tutorial, or maybe a post of is own).
Thank you again!
Awesome! Thanks for sharing this.
Thank you for reading!
Luzbelitx, you rock! Thanks for showing what’s possible. 🙂
Thank you, Aitch!
Fantasy artist Ciruelo Cabral defined magic as “the act of making visible what’s invisible”.
So I guess this is the magic that I do 🙂
A great photo series! Thanks for sharing the link
Thank you for your input, cloudiah! I think I feel more and more proud of this work as days pass…
Hey, that’s pretty cool! I like your dudey poses.
Thank you, Savy Boxer!
I’ll be working again with the same photographer soon. Now that we covered the transformation, we’ll be doing portraits with different outfits and of course more dudey poses 😀
