Red Riding Hood Costume & Makeup





I had so much fun creating this Little Red Riding Hood video, from the costume, to the makeup, to the actual filming in the forest. It took the greater part of a whole day to film and edit this, but I think it was worth it.

My inspiration was Red Riding Hood as a sweet little girl playing with her big sister's blue eyeshadow, but I also wanted to add a grown-up element, as this costume look is meant for adults. I think the look is both sweet and sexy, without losing the character of a frightened girl lost in the woods with the big bad wolf after her!
