This is the moment a girl pranked her boyfriend by waking him up to her lips ‘sewn together’.
Natalie Weaver, 23, practised a Hallowe’en make-up look where she used body latex, tissue paper and stitching to make her lips appear sewn together.
As her boyfriend, Stephen Hall, was sleeping upstairs, Natalie decided to go and surprise him – entering their bedroom whining ‘babe, my face’.
Stephen, 27, was so shocked that he immediately started screaming and quickly changed his caring tones to ferociously jumping around the bed in a bid to get away from her.
Natalie, from Castleford, West Yorks, said: “I definitely didn’t expect half of the reaction that I received – I filmed it because I thought that when I went in he’d be shocked and maybe scream, but not this.
“I had been watching a few Halloween make-up tutorials as I have never done Halloween make-up before.
“I came across this look and thought it would be easy enough for me to try as it was my first try.
“I thought the end result of the make-up was ok, I didn’t expect him to react like that as when I looked in the mirror it wasn’t as scary as I’d anticipated.”
Natalie, a manager, had been browsing the internet for Hallowe’en make-up tutorials to gain inspiration for her costume at the end of the month.
After finishing her first attempt she decided to head upstairs to show her unsuspecting boyfriend who was asleep.
Natalie added: “It was at about 10.40pm and we had just got home from going for a meal and Stephen fell asleep whilst I was going my Hallowe’en make-up.
“It took half an hour to complete the look and I used a mixture of body latex and tissue paper to make the layers and then added foundation, fake blood and stitches.
“I took advantage of the fact he had fallen asleep but I was very surprised at his reaction.
“I was expecting him to wake up and be a little bit shocked, maybe ask ‘what the hell’ but nothing like what happened!”
Stephen, a plumber, added: “I thought I was having a nightmare because it’s not something you expect to see when you wake up.
“As you can see from the video I was absolutely terrified – I didn’t know what was going on.
“I didn’t know if I was still asleep or if my girlfriend had gone all Chainsaw Massacre on me!”
