Hi, i am dressing up on new years eve to make myself look like a old man.
I want to make it look as effective as possible, ideally like they do in jack ass the movie! I have been told copydex glue stuff could be a cheap method, has anyone got any sugerstions for me. I am not sure about copydex, whether it would be good for my skin? bit dodgy maybe?
I would like to get it done all properly but reckon it be a bit expensive. But im sure there must be something i could use myself, and look nearly as good, any ideas?

I recomend searching the forums first, of try consulting The Ultimate FAQ in the Filmmakers forum.

Pretty late reply, but maybe it will help anyone who comes across this. I love doing this, im fourteen and ive gotten many senior citizen discounts.....well, if you want it to look real, i would certianly use a prosthetic, i make my own but you can get some decent pre-made prothetic masks from screamteam.com, and many other resources.
