My FORUMERS! I'm so sorry I've neglected you, I have so much to tell! Just recently closed our haunt for the year, total success. Promoted to assistant to the director in the huge theatre company from my Beauty and the Beast post. I also have my own project going on, a tragedy that will premier this February but I'll leave that for other posts when I have more time! For the past 3 months or so I've barely had enough time to squeeze some sleep into my schedule :P
Well anyways here's what the post is really about, for the haunt I worked on we did some promoting by going to big events before the month of October and doing some scare acting with primarily zombie characters to keep the characters inside the house secret. I always do the makeup but the night before our first zombie event I was asked to fill in for another actor. I had absolutely nothing ready as far as a character so that night and a little into the morning I created a character I simply call "The Old Woman" (Yeah I did horror drag :P) For being an EXTREMELY last minute improvised character, she honestly was the most petrifying character at our events hahaha.
I did my makeup in about 30/40 minutes at every event and used white hair spray to simulate greying hair (Yeah my hair is really that long :P) and contacts and veneers. Here are some pics of me walking around scaring people. The makeup might look different in some pics but that's because I went out in this character various times.
