Queen of the Damned: Akasha Makeup and Body Paint Tutorial

Hello Children of the Damned,

Today I am paying homage to the Queen herself, Akasha. I love how her character is the personification of raw power, sex, and confidence. She is a badass, and on top of that, has the balls to prove it to anyone who gets a little ansy. Granted, she is completely crazy, and doesn’t have any regard for life, human or otherwise. What can I say, there’s a fine line between powerful and crazy.

Seriously though, Akasha is the big mama of vampires. How you ask?  Well according to Anne Rice, a couple twin witches pissed her off, after not giving her the information she wanted, she had their village bruned down, had them raped, and then banished. So what did these twins do? Cursed her and the king with a blood thristy spirit. You know, things normal angry people do. So a  couple villages drained later, the people had enough, cursed her into stone, and bam. She still had some children running around, but no one was as power hungry, or just plain hungry, as Akasha.

Here’s my rendition of the Queen of the Damned:
