They’re pouring latex on him to make a false chest. So that they can place the arc reactor prop in him and make it legitimately look like it’s embedded in is flesh and with tears and scar tissue. The latex is colored so they can see where they are applying and how thick the layers are. It will then be airbrushed to his skintone and details like nipples scar tissue discoloration will be added.

Here’s that picture

Then the reactor prop is added to the dimple. Basically the latex becomes fake skin and they tear part of the center open to embed it.

Now you can see how realistic it looks. 

I cannot express enough how much I love little behind the scenes things like this. 

they got paid to do this, too…

makeup artists are my favorite thing ever

When you are going to school for this sort of thing (which I kind of did but had to drop out, long story), one of the first things you learn is not necessarily technique so much as how to approach the actors, because in a lot of cases this sort of makeup/appliance application is really intense and can be stressful. So you have to be very, very soothing, like a nurse doing some medical procedure, explaining each step so the patient doesn’t freak right the fuck out.

I mean, sometimes you have to do a plaster cast of someone’s head, and all they have to breathe through are some plastic straws in their nostrils. So.

Add that, in your imagination, to images like these. The artists explaining each step as they apply the goop to RDJ’s chest. He looks like he’s handling it pretty well though, so I guess the soft-nurse-voice may not be required. Maybe a more science-bro mythbuster approach. “And this is what we’re gonna use to fake a big ole’ hole in yer chest!”

Just took all the hairpins out of my Jeannette wig to wash and restyle it tomorrow.

So I just bought a room divider.

NOT JUST for doing webcam video thingies but like. That was definitely a large part of the purchasing decision.

Seriously, making a room divider seems so much easier than cleaning right now you have no idea.

I wonder what it would take to bring Jeannette back….

Once my wig is repaired and my room doesn’t look like hell I will get on camera and beg.

oh my godddddd there is a new swedish reality tv show where they are tracking down internet trolls and confronting them about the death threats they’ve sent to people, since it’s actually illegal.

watching them try to explain how it’s not them is the best entertainment i’ve ever seen.

this episode ended with them fining him 5000 SEK to be paid to the victim!

guess what America should do
