When I did my Frankenstein's Monster makeup in 2000, people were constantly asking me, "How much of that is your real face?" The answer is, "Basically, none."
As you can see in the photos above, the foam latex appliance I created (seen here in its natural off-white state) covered my entire face from the jawline up, and back to just in front of my ears. The eyelids were seperate pieces glued on individually. The top and back of the headpiece was made of buckram, and was glued to the edges of the foam latex. The whole thing was glued on using Prosaide prosthetic adhesive (unbelievably nasty, tenacious stuff that can only be removed with special Prosaide remover).
In order to create the proper shade of green, it was necessary to mix layers of white, yellow, and dark green rubber mask grease makeup, so I essentially had to do the entire makeup three times (recreated below). Then the appropriate highlights and lowlights were added, the scars colored, and the whole thing powdered. The last additions (not shown here) were the neck electrodes and wig.
