More Roy Lichtenstein Costumes

90% of my traffic comes from people looking up Lichtensten costumes, that’s a fact. I thought I’d pander to anyone who is looking for more Roy Lichtenstein costume images who isn’t satisfied by my other two posts

The image above is I think of a Redditor, the images below are taken from the Neatorama and reddit comment threads.

Also special mention goes to Robots in disguise’s music video for featuring themselves in Lichtenstein esque make-up (23 seconds in):

Homemade Lichtenstein Comic Book Pop Art Costume

After too many years of the same tired ‘ole remakes and trashy costumes everywhere, I decided to liven things up a bit! This Roy Lichtenstein comic book Pop Art really pops to life (get it?) with this homemade ensemble.

I spent hours polka-dotting myself silly and adding bold comic lines around my features. I sewed heavily colored fabric together to make the dress and lined pleats with fabric paint. I painted heavy lines on high heels and created a foam poster board “thought bubble” that read “Later that night…”GEE, I HOPE I WIN” (a nod toward any costume contests I would enter ūüėČ and hot glued it to a headband that I bought at a local craft store.

I created another foam board sign that read “GASP” to complete the comic look! On my legs I drew in knee-caps and added a “cross-hatching” effect. It took a good while, but I was stoked with the end result!

This is a picture of the woman in the Roy Lichtenstein painting as an actual comic book character.

For this homemade Roy Lichtenstein comic girl costume I purchased a yellow wig and painted black lines in it. I also purchased white stockings and painted polka dots on it. The earrings I made out of cellophane balls. The dress was just a polka dot dress that I have laying around the house. I coated my face with white paint and put red polka dots. I outlined all my features with black liquid eyeliner. I continued the polka dots on my arms with red acrylic paint.

I printed out one of Roy’s paintings and attached it with black ribbon with ribbon arm bands.

¬†This Homemade Comic Book Pop Art Costume was inspired by Roy Lichtenstein pop art. Every year my goal is to wear a costume that’s original. I hate spending too much money on costumes sold at the store for two reasons, (1) the material is cheap, (2) 87 other people will probably be wearing it as well. This year I decided to do be Comic Book Pop Art which involved paint, make up and markers. I used some clothes that I already had and painted my wig yellow at the ends. It took me about 2 hours to create this cartoonish look. The dot placement and black outlining were key to creating the pop art style seen in comic books. I outlined my eyebrows, eyes, lips, nose, collar bone, cleavage, chin, cheeks, ears, arms, elbows and even my feet and created a “POW” out of markers and poster board paper.

This costume is for sure one of the coolest costumes that I have created.

Katamari Hack

Some people have way too much time on their hands… This is pretty neat however, a bookmarklet that turns any webpage into a “Game” of Katamari Damacy allowing you to roll a ball round and collect all the elements of the page. Just copy and pate the following javascript into your url bar:

javascript:var i,s,ss=[‘http://kathack.com/js/kh.js’,’http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.5.1/jquery.min.js’];for(i=0;i!=ss.length;i++){s=document.createElement(‘script’);s.src=ss[i];document.body.appendChild(s);}void(0);

Or drag this link¬†Katamari! into your bookmarks bar, click on it while on any website and let it roll…

I love these little javascript hacks, much like the asteroids one I posted some time ago.

Door Chain Maze!

When I moved into my house I found that they had put the door chain on the wrong was round so you had to pull the chain towards the opening to release the chain, I’ve always thought these things were ¬†a little pointless, as they are held into the door frame with a tiny screw that will rip out of the wood if you put enough force on the door/kick it. I guess they are a deterrent allowing you to open the door and not have someone force themselves into your house, but if anyone really wants to force their way in they can.

Anyway… My feelings on door chains aside, this design featuring a¬†labyrinthine path for you to get your door open will¬†undoubtedly¬†mean that you will die in a fire as you try to get out of your house… Aside from that it’s pretty funky…

Business Card Stamp

How much paper is wasted on business cards that are handed out and then discarded, or just get chucked because someone changes job role/company? How about you just put the details that would have been on your business card on a stamp, and stamp the details on a bit of scrap paper whenever you need to give someone your card.

You retain the fact that you are giving someone a physical¬†artefact with your details on it, but you aren’t killing trees unnecessarily. I’m not sure how professional it looks to give someone a scrap of paper with your ¬†details stamped on it. It might not cut the mustard in some industries, but if you are a creative, then I think it’s a great Idea, you can also double up it’s usefulness by making any sheet of paper a printed letterhead. It’s print on demand stationary in your pocket!

The idea was developed by Fischer Portugal, by creative director Diogo Mello, art director Marco Martins and copywriter Rafael Pitanguy.

You can tell Halloween is coming up because…

I had a quick look at the stats for my blog just there and I noticed that one post was getting a shed load more hits than any of the others:

I don’t get very many hits, so 40 in one day for an old post titled¬†Cool Lichtenstein Pop Art make up is pretty impressive for me and all because I posted this image I randomly found online:

It’s a cool photo, and I predict that this year there will be many copy-cat photo’s taken for Halloween…

On the off chance that anyone gets to this blog post and wants inspiration I found an article with in progress photo’s of someone doing something similar on a blog called illusion360. It was apparently for a Halloween photo-shoot for MAC Makeup.

I think it’s really cool but I’m not sure I think it’s as good as the one in the¬†original¬†article.

You also might find this image of a girl with pixelated makeup pretty cool.

The article its from is in French (I assume, I didn’t actually read it, but it’s not English) but you don’t need to be able to read to rip it off this Halloween.

That is all really, I don’t have much more to say, if everyone who viewed that original blog post clicked on an ad I’d probably make at least a 50p! that would be awesome… Unlikely but awesome none the less…
Here are a couple of examples of someone who has tried the Lichtenstein look from flickr:

Incidentally after just a little bit of digging I managed to find out that the original picture was by an artist/photographer? called Eva Mueller here is another awesome example of her work:

Eizo Pin-up Calendar 2010 X-Ray Nudes

Eizo who are a company that make monitors for medical imaging have released a¬†calendar¬†of nudes with a difference. I like the style of this, it’s clever and it’s just about safe for work.

I can’t seem to find the images anywhere any more…

EDIT: It’s taken me almost two years to be bothered to update this But I’ve found the images on “TheCoolList”… Here they are:

Cool Lichtenstein Pop Art make up

Note: If you have reached this post by Googling for it I’ve written a follow up post about this post with more info/examples of this type of make up.

Not the first time I’ve seen images of make up like this but I think it looks awesome. I’ve noticed a growing trend of artists trying to make real life look like pictures rather than making pictures that look like real life. I really Like this image and I just wanted to share it.

Anti Face Recognition Make Up

I’m a big fan of subverting the attempts of various governmental and non governmental bodies to monitor our every movement. So when our society becomes so “Minority Report”-esque that they start tracking us using facial recognition, I’ll look into the¬†research¬†of ¬†Adam Harvey.

He’s researching subversive make up that foils facial recognition and has come up with some pretty cool looking designs that look like something straight out of Bladerunner. The key is apparently in breaking the¬†symmetry¬†of the face.

In the image above faces with a red square were recognised by a computer, so the point of this is to make the faces unrecognisable as faces by a computer. The problem is that software companies will just factor this make up into their algorithms. I like the Idea of an arms race between make up artists and facial recognition software companies though.
