It’s September 1st and Halloween is getting so close! We wanted to give you a fun and spooky challenge this month to get into that oh so Halloweenie mood.

Yessssss….this month you get to create your favorite Tim Burton Character! It doesn’t have to be one that I mentioned. Any Tim Burton Character from any movie is fine. There are plenty to choose from!
Obviously you can’t create a back story for the character, because the back stories already exist, and we are not trying to re-write the work of Mr. Burton. So instead, write a short paragraph telling us why you chose the character, what you like about them and how you relate to the character or are inspired by him or her...or it.
You will be judged on the following criteria:
1) Representation of the character (Is the character recognizable?)
2) Makeup concept (the idea that you were trying to create)
3) Makeup execution (technique/detail- how well you executed your idea)
4) Presentation (setting or background/lighting/costume)
5) Adherence to theme (Did you create a Tim Burton character?)
6) Character explanation (How concisely you explained why you chose the character, etc)
HOW IT WORKS (THE BASICS):
- Choose your character
- Apply makeup and costume.(Prosthetics not required, but may be used. Full costume not required)
- Take high resolution photos (see requirements below).
- Follow us on Facebook (@mostlydead.com) or Instagram (@mostlydeaddotcom).

NOTE: Some of you have been submitting the names and social media ID’s of your models and photographers. It’s great that you are crediting everyone involved, and we encourage you to do so on your social media pages, when you post the photos to social media. We always post the social media ID;s of the MUA so people can visit their page and see other credits there, but since this is a makeup contest for makeup artists, we will only be announcing and tagging the names of the makeup artists. There should only be one MUA working on each piece, so there will be one name mentioned for each entry. Your models and photographers absolutely deserve credit for their work, but this is up to you to put on your page. Our announcements will only mention the makeup artist.
Winners will be announced through social media so make sure you are following us on Facebook(@mostlydead.com) or Instagram (@mostlydeaddotcom
