Gladiator and the Chocolate Factory

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory - I write this post after just eating two bars of chocolate.  Yesterday I ate a massive bag of M&Ms.  Not the 150g packs, the 300g 'more to share' jumbo bag.  I feel like I'm writing a confessional and maybe I should before I resemble Augustus Gloop.  Don't you think it's strange that Wonka bars are a certain purple that seem very similar to Cadburys... Anyway!  For this look I wanted to pay homage to the purple wrappers and the gold ticket.  I wanted to create something that was out of this world and looked a little supernatural and I think it at least paid off! And if your wondering, yes I did color my hair! Barry M glitter dust pots have so many uses!  And as you can see it didn't dye my hair at all so I'd say if you have blonde or white hair and want to color it for a night - turn to powder eye shadows!

Gladiator - This is definitely in my top 3 favourite looks from Vanity Nightmare at the Movies.  It was also a mess to create!!!  I first hairsprayed my body so I could create a tacky surface to stick the confetti to.  I then sprayed over more to set and then sprayed more to layer more on top.  By this part my skin was already resisting movement and I wasn't finished yet.  After I was happy that I had enough hairspray on my body - to the point it was dripping down me, I then got out my gold hair spray and coated everything in gold, including my body which was already painted gold.  I then ran out of gold which is why some bits are coated fully and others aren't.  I love the effect though and when things don't go as planned I just accept it and role with it!  I wanted to create a statue ish look and being sealed in hairspray helped me achieve that!  I also stuck cake decorations around my eyes with eye lash glue which only added to the fact I couldn't move my body!
