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!

From one Voldemort to another, I just wanted to say I really love the effect you managed to create an appreciate just how hard it is to get that nose effect right!

Do you have any side profile pics?

Re breathing through the nose. I don't know how you have yours liked up with your own nostils, but I have a very fine channel in mine which gives me a degree of breathing ability through the nose should I need it (it depends on how well the prosthetic has been applied each time though on how well it lines up without causing a vacuum)

Would love to have a chat and compare notes.
I probably won't be on here much (have only just registered after years of meaning to!), but feel free to DM me or follow me on Twitter (TK2262) and we can have a chat via there.

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?
