As Halloween quickly approaches, the mad dash to find the most terrifying and terrific costume is on -- but if you're a loud and proud comic book fan, this Sin City makeup tutorial might be the perfect solution to your costume woes. Created by Beautylish user Ana A., this gory graphic novel tribute tutorial shows how in under an hour, you can transform yourself into a character from Frank Miller's acclaimed 'Sin City' series.

Using a black eyeliner pencil, white face foundation, Wolfe's Hydrocolor in black, and Mehron red liquid face makeup, Ana creates a look so convincing that she instantly appears to be an animated figure rather than a living human. By working with the shadows of the face, the comic-style of illustration is easily translated from the page to your face.

As a huge fan of the graphic novels and the 2005 film adaptation, I'm beyond excited to see this awesome tribute to the series. I might just have to try out this Sin City makeup tutorial for myself! Stats for Gory Graphic Novel Costumes Trending: Older & Buzzing
