Lord Voldemort: Four by moleculo Lord Voldemort: Four by moleculo
This was my Halloween costume for 2011, a cosplay of Lord Voldemort of the Harry Potter franchise. *Photos adjusted for cropping and exposure only*

*This is NOT a mask*

Head to toe:

- A Glatzan bald cap applied using Michael Mosher's secret techniques. Buy his "New Bald Cap DVD", you won't be sorry.
- A self-made silicone facial prosthetic covering my brow, nose/cheeks, and upper lip. This was sculpted onto a very "special" lifecast of my face.
- A custom set of front teeth I sculpted and then cast out of dental acrylic.
- A self-made silicone chin/lower lip prosthetic.
- WB licensed Voldemort robe (the one that comes with the really awful mask).
- Cosmetic fingernails filed down with a Dremel and colored with Ben Nye charcoal and ash powders
- A custom version of Voldemort's wand made from Sculpey. Shout out to Alice for that one.
- The makeup was mostly done with Skin Illustrator palettes, but I used some cream makeup for close to the eyes.

I hope you enjoy!

Wow! That's amazing. What skin illustrator colors did you use? And would it work on olive skin?

Just the original Flesh Tone palette, mostly using "Rice Paper". With enough layering, I don't see why it wouldn't work on olive skin, but keep in mind that Skin Illustrator does not apply opaquely and is meant to blend with underlying skin tones and/or other colors.

Hi, I'm trying to do a special mermaid look, with a nose that goes completely over my nose and seals the nose holes. Is there a way to do this using silicone with out the water breaking the glue and washing away the makeup?

I think it would depend on a few key things: how long you'll be submerged in water, the quality of your edges/how well they're secured, the type of adhesive you use, and the type of makeup used. ProsAide adhesive is acrylic based and not water-soluble, but will still spoil when met with moisture over time. You would have to use alcohol activated makeup or seal cream makeup really well something intense like Green Marble (powder first). Be careful, though. The idea of covering your nostrils completely and going underwater makes me nervous. You'll have to resist the impulse to purge air through your nose. Make sure there are plenty of people present in case anything goes wrong.

Currently when I go under I have to wear a nose clamp, which stops up my nose completely but it doesn't look good. This is for a mermaid costume, I've been working the idea over in my head but don't know anything about costume prognostics at all lol. I'll jot down what you've said and check up on those things. Pointing me in the right direction is a huge help <3 thanks
