originally was going to title this post "What's my name, bitch", but
remembered I'm not Freddy Krueger no matter how many times I say that
word. With that being said, ello' I'm Ash, also known by Ash Von Horror
and Ash Slaughter.
let me fill you in on a few things about myself. I'm a 31 year old
professional weirdo who likes expressing myself with make-up. Brief
enough, yes? And that's why I'm here, to discuss the lovely world that
been doing make-up as a hobby for about 10 years now. I love everything
about it, love that you can do just about anything with it. Create
characters, recreate icons, scare the mortals.. ya know, the fun stuff.
tend to get a lot of questions about my process, how do I come up with
ideas, etc, so I'm going to do my best to answer some of those questions
Where do you come up with ideas?
Sometimes friends will send me artwork to try to recreate my own take.
Sometimes it's literally random and I'm winging it as I go. Sometimes I
want to recreate characters that are interesting. Sometimes I want to
What's your favorite make-up you've done so far?
I actually don't have a particular favorite, but I am rather proud of
some of my make- ups. Pinhead (Hellraiser) & Julie (Return of the
Living Dead 3) I'm most proud of.
What inspires you?
- Horror. Horror is my life, my love, my soulmate. I embrace horror, cherish it.
What's more difficult: Beauty or SFX?
- Beauty. I don't know why, but for me it's more difficult.
if you ever have any questions, hit me up! I'm always willing to help
others, especially in the world of make-up. Anything that encourages
people to express their art? I'm your biggest supporter. Well, I hope
you enjoyed reading my ramblings and I'll be here coming up with more
ideas for you guys!
