Zombie pirate will eat your brains: International Make-Up Artist Trade Show


This week, make-up artists gathered at the Pasadena Convention Center for the International Make-Up Artist Trade Show (IMATS). The event featured Emmy-winning make-up artists, YouTube sensations and students competing with an "Alice in Wonderland" theme. The LA Weekly has an extensive image gallery with photographs by Star Foreman, including this scary pirate shown here. (thanks, Liz Ohanesian)


  1. I had a nice conversation with the zombie pirate at BayCon, and he is every bit as impressive close up; his is an uncompromisingly crafted appearance.

  2. I’m surprised that pirate zombie photo wasn’t used by Toronto cops to smear the protesters. Wasted opportunity.

  3. This guy isn’t even slightly scary. I live in Vancouver BC and there’s block after block of people who are scarier than this guy – nice try Hollywood!

  4. Oy mate I am “Mic the Scallywag”. First off I am not a Hollywood creation, I’m just a regular guy who likes to create cool looking characters and I’m self taught at that. Everything you see in this pic I created myself, makeup, hair, costuming, leather, and props. Thank you to everyone who respects and appreciates my art. You can find me on FB to see more of what I do: Mic Scallywag
    Thanks for the props Xeni…Cheers ~Mic
