Halloweekend is here! In honor of the festivities this weekend I’ve made this week’s Fan Art Fridays Halloween themed.
In Hollywood, I’d assume that makeup artists get paid a lot of money to transform actors playing characters like Johnny Depp’s Benjamin Barker/Sweeney Todd and Effie from The Hunger Games. Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen in Alice in Wonderland (2010) is no exception.
We all know that Tim Burton’s movies are just a parade of heavily costumed characters, some more than others. His visions are like a circus-like dream that comes to life in his films, Helena Bonham Carter transforming into an evil Red Queen.
I just love the detail in her costume, which is well depicted in this oil painting. The lips are perfectly plump and heart shaped, the red hair rolled to a tee, and her eye makeup blue as the people she upset during her reign as Red Queen.
The cat is also really cute as it pokes out from behind her.
I have no idea who painted this piece of fan art. There’s no attribution on Fanpop and I can’t see a signature on the painting either!
Anyway, if you’re trying to achieve this look for Halloween, here’s a makeup tutorial:
Enjoy your Halloweekend!
