Mar 26th, 2017: Monsters

♫Scary monsters in the neighborhood
Scary monsters made of ticky tacky
♫Scary monsters in the neighborhood
Scary monsters none the same.

♫There's a green one and a pink one
And a blue one and a yellow one,
♫They're all made out of ticky tacky
And no two look just the same.

Got a friend or relative that deserves payback? A neighbor that dumps lawn clippings over your fence.
A bully picking on your baby? A cow orker who screwed you out of a promotion. Or somebody you
just don't like? You can use things around the house to make a monster that'll make them throw those
shorts/panties away.

In 1965, Forrest J. Ackerman hired legendary movie make-up artist Dick Smith to produce a
Famous Monsters of Filmland Do-It-Yourself Monster Make-Up Handbook. Smith (1922-2014)
was the guy who did the award-winning make-up for movies like The Exorcist, Little Big Man,
The Godfather, Taxi Driver and Ken Russell’s Altered States. Smith’s special edition illustrated
magazine presented a 100-page step-by-step guide on how to get the look for some of cinema’s
best-known movie monsters. Using a range of everyday objects—from crepe paper and
breadcrumbs to ping pong balls—Smith shared some of his best-kept secrets of the trade.
Come Halloween your kids could not only draw raves from the sugar purveyors, they would scare
the competition out of the hood.

Love it!

This is going on my Sakuracon shortlist.

There's a link at the OP post link to the Book at Amazon. It seem there was the original book and a 1986 reprint that brings more money. You have to click on "see all 5 formats and editions" to view everything, but it looks like $50 is the bottom, and a new 1986 paperback is $2128.01.

My sweetie has a movie makeup guide book, but not that one. I still shudder to think what the replacement cost would be...he bought it new more than 20 years ago, it's by Tom Savini, and it's autographed. If I ever find a beat-up old copy of this one, though, he might need it.
