My Bellatrix Lestrange cosplay makeup for HP7.2!
Hey everyone! Have you seen the newest (and last :( ) Harry Potter movie yet? I went with my friends in Boston on Opening Night, in Bellatrix cosplay no less! Unfortunately I forgot my camera, so for now I only have a phone photo post-movie. I apologize for the awful photo, I will put up more when my friend with the camera upload her pics! (And yes, that's a pic of Moaning Myrtle on the shower stall of my friend's bathroom XD)
Helena Bonham Carter didn't wear much makeup in the movie for the role of Bellatrix, but I figure I should go for a "Evil Queen that hasn't been sleeping well" look. Lots of browns and greys went into shading my eye socket and create fake "panda eyes" for this look. I wore a pair of natural-yet-thick false lashes, kept the eyebrows light and smudged on dark purple lipstick (though on retrospect maybe dark red would look better). I cornrowed my hair in six section early in the day, and undid the braids and teased the everliving hell out of it after I did the makeup. Quite a lot of people recognized me at the theatre, as I was wearing something witchy to go with the makeup and hair, and I have the bird head pendant, and the movie was excellent as well. If you haven't seen it, you definitely should!
