Shiva (From Final Fantasy VIII)

Hi again! So I recreated this character from the videogame Final Fantasy VIII.

I made this entire makeup on my friend Kim, of whom I made a head cast in order to do the head pieces. 

I made the cowl in foam latex using a cardboard "oven", a fan heater and a homemade temperature regulator to bake the foam latex. For the flaps, I've used worbla thermoplastics. The forehead was made individually and I made it in PlalGel 10 encapsulated in SuperBaldiez. 
I've made in total 30 prosthetic pieces for this character, including shoulder pieces, crystals, breast pieces, bikini, thigh pieces, elven ears.

I spend a total of 6 hours to apply all prosthetics and do the bodypaint by airbrushing, using alcohol based and water based paints for airbrush.
