A friend of mine wanted to be Rob Zombie one Halloween, and showed me the cover of a recent CD release:

I told him it was no problem to recreate that face. Long story short, he backed out after I purchased all the necessary materials.
So, I put the makeup on myself rather than allowing the project to die. I used rigid collodion for the scars, and aluminum tape from an
auto parts store for the staples in the face. What's great about this tape is, you can pinch it, and it will hold its shape. It really looks
like the staples are digging into the skin!
