prosthetic nose

Of course, the real reason why Star Trek aliens look so much like humans is because of budgetary practicalities. It can cost up to $200 to apply a simple nose prosthetic to a Star Trek extra. Full Cardassian makeup can add $2000 to the budget per day, and they’re still humanoid bipeds with a standard number of eyes. Unless there was a compelling story reason, truly alien aliens were seldom seen in the Star Trek universe.

Wicked Witch from Wizard of Oz. Josh helped her with the green makeup and even a nose prosthetic. She went all out for it.

Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games. It’s one of her favorite books and she didn’t want to draw too much attention to herself, but she still wanted to impress.

Catwoman from Batman (animated series). She would look sexy and badass, like always.

Shaggy Rogers from Scooby Doo. It was simple but fun and related to halloween and spooky stuff so for him it was perfect.

Daphne Blake from Scooby Doo. She wanted to match Chris’ costume in some way, but didn’t want to get a wig, or glasses for a Velma costume.

Michael Meyers from Halloween. It was simple and scary and fun, everything Halloween costumes should be in his opinion. Though he did give Emily, Jess and Ash a huge scare when he came in.

Supergirl from Superman (Unbound). She loved the outfit, thought it was really cute. Chris, Matt and Mike all told her it would be perfect. And secretly she’s always been a bit of a DC fangirl.

Alice from Alice in Wonderland. She always loved the story and thought the outfit was simple enough, and that she fit the bill perfectly.

Can I admit something? I love Zoe Saldana. 

I loved her when she did greenface in Guardians of the Galaxy.

 I loved her when she did blueface in Avatar. 

I especially loved her when she did exasperated balletface for Center Stage, the best dance movie of all time. 

Despite all of that love (literally decades of love), I cannot support Zoe Saldana donning blackface to portray Nina Simone in the upcoming biopic Nina

Really, now? This is egregious. Yes, Zoe Saldana is an Afro-Latina woman, but that doesn’t excuse the darkened makeup, the wig, and the prosthetic nose it requires to make Zoe look like Nina. That’s blackface

Actresses who look like Nina Simone really do exist, Hollywood. Look harder. 

Nina Simone was so vocal about her blackness so seeing Zoe Saldana, a lightskin woman donning blackface and a prosthetic nose to play Nina Simone in her biopic is such an insult I can’t. Inshallah, I pray on everything, it will flop 🙏🏽 ameen. Darkskin actresses can’t even get roles to play renown darkskin women in biopics so what hope is there in seeing darkskin women in fucking fictional movies.

Women have certainly undergone radical physical or cosmetic changes for roles. But when people praise actresses like Nicole Kidman (who donned a prosthetic nose in The Hours) Charlize Theron (who gained weight and shaved her eyebrows in Monster), the focus is less on their talent and dedication and more on how brave they are for deciding not to be beautiful.

i just watched that nina simone doc on netflix and the whole time I was thinking about how someone out here tried to legit put zoe saldana in dark makeup and a prosthetic nose to play her in a biopic like they really tried to disgrace her legacy like that

I was told my first post on here should be something “gently charming and general”, like what I had for lunch. But I feel like when it comes to first impressions it’s much better to be out of the box, so instead I’ll talk about how my coworkers and I spent an hour at work playing a rousing round of “Where the heck did we put that decaying prosthetic nose?”

Coming soon: beloved white actor puts on prosthetic nose and gains/loses weight, whole world dies from clapping so hard they forget to eat or drink for 8 days
