Sucker Punch Makeup - Amber Inspired Tutorial & Giveaway!11:21 AM
Hi everyone! It's time for another movie-inspired makeup look (and a giveaway at the end of the blog entry)! :D
Ever since I first saw the trailer for the movie Sucker Punch I was dying to do a video on the makeup in it, no joke. I love the visuals of the movies Zack Snyder has directed before (Watchmen and 300) and I've been impatiently waiting for this movie to come out for months, so I'm totally stoked to share this one with you. You guys know how excited I get when something new features really interesting makeup and this movie is no exception. ;)
One of the coolest things about this movie is that it is very heavily influenced by Asians and Asian-Americans including 2 of the main actresses, Jamie Chung who is Korean American and Vanessa Hudgens who is Chinese-Filipino American, and also the Japanese American Screenwriter Steve Shibuya, Chinese American cinematographer Larry Fong, and Chinese American editor William Hoy. Did I also mention there are giant robotic samurai in this movie? Oh yeah. Asians represent! ^_^V

So I'll start off by showing you my outfit. The garrison cap is borrowed from my grandpa-in-law. He is a Korean War veteran and it's from his old Summer uniform, so it actually means a lot to me that he let me use it for the tutorial. We've had some talks about what Korea was like then and what it's like now in contrast. So much has changed, it's quite fascinating.
The military jacket is from PacSun and the harness is made from suspenders worn backwards because I'm quirky like that. ;) This shot was actually one I didn't mean to take when I was setting up my camera to take test shots. Yay for candids.
This is in the midst of my trying to find ways to pose with the sucker without it looking...wrong. LOL.
