Much like many horror aficionados I much prefer practical effects and makeup to CGI.
Nothing quite kills the mood like the sight of CGI blood in a horror film.
For the third edition of the Tokyo SFX Makeup Workshop’s guide to special effects makeup, they cover everything from basic facial makeup styles up to more fantastical characters such as vampires and zombies.
This edition is chopped into four different chapters, covering wounds, serial killers, modelling plus step-by-step instructions – making this the essential read for hardcore cosplayers and also independent filmmakers looking to make the best effects on a limited budget.
The photography from the Workshop is simply stunning, with some scenes looking like they have been lifted straight out of a horror movie.
Detailed instructions give you everything you need to create these effects, balancing this with images of the practical applications.
If you are looking to turn heads at your next horror festival or convention, this book is an essential read.
A Complete Guide to Special Effects Makeup 3 is available now from Titan Books.
