Theatrical Makeup

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

So within the next month or so Im holding a photo shoot. The subject? Zombies, of course. Ive got the photo end down pat- what I need to know about is makeup.

I need to know what kind of makeup is best.
I need cheep but realistic.
Is there any way to improvise with homemade items? I know I can do bones with white candles and arteries with rubber tubing- Ill use food coloring if I have to but Id like something with a little more substance. Maybe food coloring and some kind of powder base.

I need to know about latex- liquid latex, latex application, latex wounds, latex removal tips etc
I need to know what Im not thinking about.
