So who do you think has the coolest corpse paint? I'm planning on wearing corpse paint for halloween, and I was wondering who had the best pattern to copy. I was thinking about just coming up with something, but when people ask me what I am supposed to be, I think it would be a lot easier if I could tell them who I was, and explain it from there. I'm not trying to make it a contest, but I wanna see who you think has really cool paint, and give a link to pictures or something.

King Diamond, the original design he had in Mercyful Fate before Gene $immon$ tried sueing for 'copying' him.

Do Alice Cooper. That way when you tell someone who you're supposed to be, they'll recognize the name. Imagine you're talking to a chick... she says, "Who are you?" "I'm the old drummer from Gorgoroth." "Uhhh... ok."

Maybe you should do what I did one year... Cliff Burton Back Fom The Dead. That was freakin' awesome.

At least make an attempt to get laid.

I'm not really worried about people not knowing who I am. I've got a friend who listens to burzum and everything, and most of my other friends are halfway familiar with the music I listen to. It should be kinda fun explaining it to everyone else.

Dimmu's vocalist, Shagroth's corpsepaint is pretty cool w/ the gills & all.

Really, I like the crosses better. Then the old "sea-dragon" paint, then the one right after Gene sued him. Gene's a prick.

Haven't u ever seen the show Gene Simmons Family Jewels? He puts KISS on everything, he loves money more than most people. And I know this has nothing to do w/ his desire for $, but he's also Jewish.

Dio claims he' invented the horns b/c his grandma used to always do it to him.

No he didnt. Its an old italian gesture. Dio's grandmother actually did it to him when he was young, as a good luck symbol. When he used it during shows, it stuck as the devil horns, which it sure as hell wasnt supposed to be.


EDIT: Meant to say Dio. All the black sabbath dudes are the same to me

I know that's what he said in Headbanger's Journey, but I'm sceptical...

Good luck doing the drummer from gorgoroth, or most designs, it's actually really fuggin hard to pull off if you're doing it by yourself I'm guessing. Maybe it's just me, but even combing my hair in a mirrior is confusing because everything is backwards lol.

i was being 100% sarcastic. i saw the Metal Documentary with dio on the subject of devil horns and gene creating breathing. thats why i mentioned it, gene is a dick and full of him self. i guess not everyone can sense sarcasm.

Try King Diamond's current one, it's not too bad.
I like the crosses. Mind the link on the first page is pretty damn sick.

best corpse-paint: Dead.
See.....big sunglasses, not Emperor sunglasses, BIG sunglasses
#25
What I've always really liked are the ones where it looks like the black paint is dripping out of their eyes and mouth. something not too complicated, but still good and sick. any good suggestions for that?
#26
Fenriz does it well. Keep it simple. The point is to look like a corpse, not some overdone Dracula wannabe who spent 3 hours getting his makeup perfected.

I like Gaahl's mix of corpse paint and blood
I’m not the man I used to be, I... I can’t go back to Arkham.

I... I should return to Arkham.


Among the churchyard’s mouldering stones I recognise a name – my own.
I have come home to Arkham.

I think corpsepainting looks butt ugly on everyone except for the kiss-members. Especially when a black metal is wearing it to look evil, instead they look like dorks.

^that.
Arthur Brown is awesome.

I like Behemoth's paint. It's not too over the top so it doesn't look ridiculous. And it actually makes them look kind of like corpses. Orion has the best.
