Game of Thrones Series - House Martell

48 comments:
 
Hey guys, I'm back with another look for my Game of Thrones series. I have to start this post off by saying that this look is HEAVILY inspired by Josh aka Petrilude of YouTube fame. He is far and away my favorite beauty guru so I've always wanted to try one of his more artistic looks and the sun one was PERFECT for the House Martell look. I added my own little touches to it (glitter and rhinestones of course) and I'm really happy with how it turned out. It's nice to be thinking about the sunshine during these cold wintery nights so let this look warm you up!


The look is inspired by the rulers of the Dornish realm: The Martells, whose sigil is of a burning sun on a red shield, shot through with a golden spear.  



The 3D appliques are just crumpled construction paper and I surrounded them with bronze and red rhinestones. I REALLY wanted to do a javelin through my lips (like the sigil) but it wouldn't stay. That was disappointing because it would have been SO hot - but alas I have no costuming latex in my kit yet. I'm still really happy with the look. Fiery, no?


It was hard to really capture the look close up (I couldn't get close because of the paper in the way) but here's the best shot I got of it. You can see the rhinestones and gold highlights a lot clearer here. I've been ripping through so much gold pigment lately I could put the Donald himself to shame. I just love how reflective and pretty it is.


Well, that's all the pictures for this look. If you want to try the tutorial out for yourself sometime then just click this link and let Josh be your guide. He's my absolute favorite, so many great tutorials. See you guys next week for another Game of Thrones look. Muah!

AND DON'T FORGET!



Nothing would make me happier than to put the prize money towards an EPIC giveaway for you guys with multiple winners but I really need your support so sign up, sign in and vote!! Thanks for all your love & support as always.
