Halloween party makeup work experience

Hi everyone , so last Halloween (2012) i was asked as a favor by a friend to do some Halloween makeup for her .The clients were going to a party dressed as characters from the ‘Human Centipede’ film. I was hired to recreate the special effects of the stitched up wounds on their face and the slit throat from the film. Looking back I would of approached this makeup differently with different products to allow more face movement. As I used wax and liquid latex to create the wounds there wasn’t much allowance for facial movement and the latex started to lift in the after a while . i think in future I will have to experiment more with the movement of products once they are on the face like sculpt gels or gelatine. But at the time I had limited experience with using a variety of products and was limited to what i had in my kit at the time .I was however happy with the initial effect and the depth of the wounds i created it looked really striking when i first did them .
I also created another makeup that night for another client attending the party, and made her up as a zombie . I was happy with this makeup as I thing the flesh hanging off the face looked really good and effective .
here are some pictures from the makeup that night , enjoy:
