“The Crow” Halloween Makeup, Eric Draven, Ashe Corvin, Hannah Foster/Talon
If you’d like to reflect your love for the comic books, films or television series, The Crow, this Halloween, we found a great 3-part series for you to get your makeup just right!
The Crow is the protagonist in the James O’Barr comic book series, The Crow . He is the link between the living and the dead and has the ability to resurrect people who have been unjustly murdered.
Eric Draven is a poetic guitarist who is brought back to life by the Crow after he and his fiancé, Shelly, are murdered by a passing gang after being stranded on a lonely stretch of highway when their car breaks down.
Their souls cannot rest so a year after his death, Draven is brought back to earth to seek justice for himself and Shelly. He does this by helping others receive the justice he and Shelly were denied.
The Crow acts as a guide for Eric in the land of the living after his “rebirth” and leads him to his killers.
In 1994, the character of Eric Draven in The Crow movie was played by Brandon Lee. It’s unfortunate that this movie version is probably more well known for the fact that it’s lead actor, Lee, was accidentally killed by a malfunctioning prop gun during the making of the movie instead of Lee’s stellar performance in the film.
“The Crow” Halloween Makeup, Eric Draven
In the movie, Eric Draven wears a distinctive style of makeup which he copies from a masquerade mask. This mask previously hung on the wall in the apartment Eric and Shelly shared together.
Using white paint on his whole face, Eric then darkens his eyes with black paint and vertical lines over and under his eyes. The look is completed with black lips and a horizontal line extending out from the corners of his mouth.
