Melisandre Makeup Test

So I am leaving for Dragon*Con crazy-early Thursday morning and only just now managed to do my test-run for Melisandre hair, makeup, and costume.  This is partly because the contacts didn’t arrive until last Friday (just in time!) and then I went to Charlotte for the weekend and then I picked up my costume in Raleigh on Sunday from Nancy (really just in time!) so this is the first time I’ve had all the parts together.

Red eyes y’all!  Look at my red contacts!  They are incredible in bright light and since I will be wearing this costume during the Dragon*Con parade I really think the effect is going to be fantastic.

The follow pictures are all just wig and makeup–some things need to be left as a surprise after all!
