Announcement | Fright Night & Advertisements

Bash Harry on Hey Bash talking about Fright Night

I gave you my heart. Why did you break it?

Besides working as a freelance makeup artist, I'm also an SFX artist. With a speciality for horror and gore. Guts, blood, and bruises. What can I say? I like messes and I especially love bloody messes. 

Why am I telling you this? It's October! The Nightmare before Christmas soundtrack blasting through, Hocus Pocus ready to play. This is the only month where I get to finally play. Where perhaps a little blood elicits excitement than fear. Where presenting your lover your heart is more disgusting than usual. 

So welcome to Fright Night!

Because I don't celebrate Halloween, I'm obligated to call it Fright Night instead. 

I miss blood, even if I encounter it at least once a month. I don't do as many SFX looks as I wished I did. Always trying to do more but never actually going through with them. A recurring motif here in this blog. I love special effects makeup but it's a concentrated niche. Few are interested in blood, unlike makeup. With strong makeup looks, you're viewed as weird but not terrifying. 

But October changes things. My love for nightmares and horrors becomes quirky and unique, than odd and frightful. Your high tolerance for blood becomes an advantage. October changes things because it's October. Things happen. Weirdos are cool for just this one month.

My dive into the SFX makeup world started last year, slowly improving and learning as the year went. What would once take me four hours now only takes me 45 minutes. Earlier this year, I did a makeup job and finished a knife-in-the-back in under half an hour. Cheer with me for I did that half-asleep from a nap.

Back in October last year, I did a similar Fright Night concept and managed to post three makeup looks.. Though the posts are gone now, deleted due to sheer embarrassment. There are still some photos from my earlier SFX work. I'm proud of the looks I did but I still cringe. The lighting, the posing, the details. 

I got better. I swear.

Among all the blood and gore, the last look is by far my favourite. My absolute pride and joy. Gross and gory, and simply perfect. I made it as an entry for Bonnie Corban's SFX contest. I made Top 5 and even better, she recreated the look as a Gory Reattached Face here

Though I am grateful for her recreation, I would be lying if I said I wasn't a little annoyed. Since she made the tutorial with a bigger platform and fan base, many consider her look to be original. They don't acknowledging me. Maybe that's just my ego but this application took hours for a beginner like me. Someone taking credit just saddens me.

I have finally incorporated advertisements in Hey Bash! 

It's been an idea in my mind for ages now. Advertisements are a fickle thing. Though I was offered a lot, I've declined a lot more. Hey Bash was never intended to have advertisements and sponsorship. That was over a year ago, and it has definitely changed since then. 

This is a beta test for now. I decided to focus on local bloggers and brands for this first month, as a test run to see how it will do. I'll probably post more detailed post about advertisements in the upcoming weeks. As of now, you can look through my Advertising page here which has more information and all you need. 

If you're interested then please e-mail me at!

An SFX heart made by Bash Harry

Hey Bash may have slightly darker content this month. It might not be suitable for easily queasy people. That said, it won't be all blood and gore. I can't bring myself to do that. I tried that last year and it failed spectacularly. Instead, makeup posts and tutorials are ready to go. They are just the same as every other post, just a little more horror-ble

Someone better high five me for that pun.

So watch out for some horror-themed posts for October.  You can do that by following Hey Bash on bloglovin or my instagram

So are you excited for October? What do you think of Fright Night?


  1. THESE. LOOK. AMAZING. I'm so proud of how far you've come with your sfx; it truly is incredible! <3

  2. wow this is incredible amazing for halloween costumes! it looks so realistic you are soooo talented! :) x x

  3. Wow there are some really great creations here, good work! I've been interested in makeup for years but I've also been interested in SFX makeup for just as long, I think it's really interesting and so many SFX artists are so damn talented.

  4. This is SO GOOD. Love the clown (which are pure evil to me, I am so scared of them irl). So in love with that last look! Yours is a lot better than hers, it sucks that she kinda took recognition and got the attention for what you did. Yours looks a lot more realistic - hers is way too bloody I think.

    I'm kinda mehhh about October. Excited to see what posts you do! But I've always felt just...meh about Halloween (people will probably start throwing old, cold pumpkin spice lattes my way now in digust) but it's never grabbed me!!

    Also you should call that girl out for taking your look. I would.

  25. You are seriously on incredible and talented woman Bash! <3 You should be extremely proud of your work, we all start somewhere and well it looks amazing!

  26. Wow you are so talented! Love these looks. I love spooky looks but I don't celebrate Halloween either. If I did try, I'd end up looking like a very harmless ghost. :P


  27. Wow!!!! That is seriously amazing!!!!! I'm so excited for Halloween <3

  28. You do it great babe.
    I have tried it myself and failed a lot of times.
    I love all the SFX :)

  30. BRING ON THE BLOOD AND GUTS! I love this month due to all the Halloween festivities and scary movies (my friends think I'm weird because I don't like rom-coms..) Your SFX make-up looks SO good!!

    Pop over to my blog!


  31. These are amazing! I love Gory Reattached Face! Sucks you didn't get credit!

  33. Oeh. I am very excited about this! I hate fright nights haha, but I loved this make-up! I already look forward to your upcoming posts!

  34. I'm reading this in the middle of the night and now I feel scared! Hahaha. But you totally got the talent! And you're pretty even though you looked dead in these photos! Hahaha

  35. holy crap, this is amazing! totally scare me off though. super talented! <3 x

  36. Wow, these are insane pictures. I can't imagine how amazing it must look in person. You are so talented, this blows my mind!

  37. That heart looks so real - whoa! The reattached face look is SO GOOD but seriously I would have sent that girl a strongly worded email. What the hell?


  38. Awesome SFX! I used to work in theatre as a costumer, so I recall many incidents with stage blood experimentation. I also interviewed Hair and Make-up Stylists and Artists about their experience in a blog post. Feel free to check it out:

  39. Oh my gosh, those looks are absolutely amazing! I am just amazed at how talented you are!

  40. Excited to see what looks you come up with! As someone who has 0 talent in makeup, it's so interesting and fun to ooh and ahh at what makeup artist are creating.

    It sucks that Bonnie Corban got a lot more credit for your look, I can totally see how frustrating that is. Being credited for my work and ideas has always been a huge thing for me, and it bothers me to no end when things like that happen. At least she did link to your blog (although it was the older link).

  41. These makeup looks are amazing - love what you've done with the special effects, they're stunning :)
    Feel free to check out our latest post x

  42. I feel you, Bash! I'm as excited as you are for this month! And I'd love to see "a darker side" of your posts during October ;) That makeup left me speechless. It's PER-FECT. I can't believe how talented you are! Can't wait to see the upcoming posts!!!

  43. Wow you are super talented! The face with all the stitches is insane. Great job!! I would love for someone to create this look for me one year for halloween. I still can't decide what I want to go as. My boyfriend and I were looking up different costumes last night. I think it's so cool that you're super passionate about all of this:-). Great blog!

  44. AHH! This is SO cool!

  45. Shit LOL I'm suuuuper queasy when it comes to gore hahaha. I used to be able to watch gory things without a problem (in fact I used to watch it while I was eating) but I can't seem to handle it anymore. Take it as a compliment though, it's real enough to fool me! You do a great job, I especially like the stitched lips :)

    I noticed Bonnie mentioned you in the comments - but it would have been a lot better imo to mention it in the video as well to make it clear ;(

  72. I'd not be very happy if someone else got credit for my work either. You should have said something perhaps? I get queasy at the sight of blood, fake or real. What great talent you've got.
