We have a great tutorial today, perfect for anyone who loves the Goosebump books; we have a free printable that is going to tell you how to create a likeness for Goosebumps Slappy.
Slappy is one of the most loved villians from the Goosebumps series (Amazon UK / US), and a key protagonist in the Goosebumps DvD. He is a ventriloquist’s dummy, who R. L. Stine, the author of the Goosebumps series, was inspired to create by the Adventures of Pinocchio.
Slappy is a perfect character for Halloween, or indeed any Goosebump inspired party, and is surprising easy to create.
- Cover face with paler skin foundation (or face paint), add darker tone to eyelids & below eyebrows,
- Draw around eyebrows with black pencil; colour in as per Slappy’s eyebrow shape. Smudge if needed,
- Apply glitter eye shadow in light flesh/orange/pink,
- Use eye liner pen to fill the space at end of your eye lid behind the lashes,
- Use this pen to draw line on the top of eye just outside the corner of the eye to the edge of the nose,
- Draw another line using the pen below the eye, to 1cm away from the nose,
- Use black powder to add faint shadows to the edge and the end of the nose. Smudge if needed,
- Accentuate the cheek bones, both to the side and below, and the middle of top lip, by adding further shadows with black powder. Brush if needed,
- Add red lipstick,
- Draw two lines from the edge of the lips down to the bottom of the chin with a black pencil to create Slappy’s mouth,
- Use pencil to draw the shape of Slappy’s hair on the side of your face and forehead. Fill in with black face paint, and
- Add the crack in the chin, and blemish on the end of the nose using black powder again.
Your Goosebumps Slappy face is ready to take on the world!
