Are you guys ready for this year's Spookygreat RebOOooooOOoos?! Last Halloween we featured the work of Sarah_Novio, who turned herself into Corpse Bride, JaleesaJaikaran as Cleopatra, and finally this incredible Frankenstein's monster tutorial by the very talented ArtistryBri. We wanted to bring this classic back (from the dead!) in case you're still looking for some inspiration this year.
"For as long as I can remember I’ve admired drag," says Bri, "but I never felt like I could start until Valentina’s time on RuPaul’s Drag Race. I had never seen an artist who was able capture so much of what was dear to me through performance, beauty, and fashion with such pristine execution and heart. That was a huge turning point for me—drag allowed me to explore my skills, dreams, and visions, in a whole new context. It’s so much bigger than just makeup."
Some past Halloween looks she's attempted and slayed? "I’ve done The Babadook and Michael Langdon from American Horror Story, but Frankenstein’s monster is such a classic that I’d yet to do, so it felt right," she says. She's come a long way from her favorite costumes as a kid; Disney princesses, paired with pink Phat Farm sneakers (of course).
Follow along as ArtistryBri turns herself into Frankenstein's monster, a process that took this perfectionist an entire day. "It sounds wild but this makeup took from 7AM to 11PM," she says. "I love fleshing out my vision to the best of my ability, so I nit pick everything until I’m satisfied."
