That is incredibly awesome. I wonder if there were dark blue flowers that could be used instead of flowers you'd have to spray paint?

The video is about two minutes long, but your view of the finished product lasts about two or three seconds. Bad editing.

But a great job with the makeup.

Looks like Homer's make-up shotgun has been vastly improved.

Marge is scary but his website has more stylized portraits, some beautiful.

Deep blue is the most rare color to come across in flowers. There are certainly no mums or carnations in that color, and those are the only flowers off the top of my head that would work for the marge-hair effect they were going for here.

This video was having a hell of a time trying to play for me. NoScript did not care for it, no sir.

(a) That was much scarier-looking than anticipated.
(b) That reminded me much too much of the live-action Simpsons porn parody.

DO NOT LOOK UP THE LIVE-ACTION SIMPSONS PORN PARODY.

Natural blues aren't that common in flowers. I'd say the best choice might have been to stem dye the flowers.

Skipped to the end and was horrified. At least the model didn't open her eyes and cause me to completely flip out.

This makes me make disapproving "hrm" noises.

Not really. Using this style of makeup, the artist just needs to do a huge wide oval and colour over the eyelids so that when the model closes her eyes, there's one huge cyclopean "eye" in the middle of her face.
