U.K. team collaborates for a different \'Alice in Wonderland\'
On a cold and cloudy Oxford afternoon, U.K. make-up artist Sarah Terry collaborated with photographer Rebecca Parkes, hairstylist Sean Butt and designer Bibian Blue to create this dark vision of Alice in Wonderland. The Victorian and Edwardian eras inspired Terry to contrast creams and gold hues with vibrant reds and smoky blacks. Appliqués, feathers, nail art and Butts’ elaborate hair design gave the looks texture. This particular Alice (Samantha Wilkinson) and White Rabbit (Blossom Blois) look innocent, but there’s a hint of mischief here, too. Let’s follow them down the path, shall we?

"We’re excited to produce IMATS shows in Canada; I’m looking forward to bringing the Make-Up Artist magazine and IMATS strengths to those shows," Key said. "We’ve been exhibiting in Toronto for the past decade and I consider it a very strong market. It's comfortable, familiar territory for us. The city is strong and vibrant—it’s a great place for a show. We have 13 years' experience producing the very best shows for make-up artists and we can take this show to the next level."

Charles Schram Dies at 97
Charles Schram, whose iconic Cowardly Lion make-up for The Wizard of Oz charmed generations of film fans, died Nov. 14 in Los Angeles. He was 97.
     
Born in Los Angeles in 1911, Schram enrolled in art classes at the University of Southern California with William Tuttle. According to Al Taylor and Sue Roy’s book Making a Monster, MGM Make-up Department Head Jack Dawn recruited Schram and Tuttle in 1935 as apprentices after he asked a college dean to recommend a couple of sculpture and painting students who could learn the art of make-up for the 1937 film The Good Earth. The pair went on to collaborate on several films, including The Seven Faces of Dr. Lao, Ben Hur and The Time Machine.

His magazine Famous Monsters of Filmlandis where I learned that people actually get paid to make monsters and do make-up. His magazine not only inspired me but so many others of my generation to get into the film business. His presence will be greatly missed.”

Specialty Contacts: A Cautionary Tale - Friday October 24, 2008
Specialty Contacts: A Cautionary Tale
So, you’ve got your cat tail, ears and whiskers all ready for your feline Halloween costume, but the face make-up is missing something. If you’re thinking of completing your costume with cat contacts, there are some safety issues you should keep in mind.

Consumers and make-up artists need to be cautious of lenses found in retail outlets or on the Internet. Often the retailers aren’t licensed to carry the special effects lenses and the contacts may not be manufactured to the correct standards. According to ophthalmologist Dr. Jonathan Gording, special effects lenses often have two layers: the inner white layer is basically a salt, he says, and a dye is applied to the outer layer for the desired effect. These hand-made lenses are fragile and need to be inspected for nicks, edge defects or other deformities.

Also, scleral contact lenses (ScCLs), often used for special effects, increase the risk of corneal erosions under the eyelid due to their heavier nature, especially if the lenses are poor quality or are poorly fitted. Any contact lens wearers and their ophthalmologists need to watch for conjunctivitis and fungal corneal infections.

For writer/director Guillermo del Toro, one of the priorities in creating the world of Hellboy 2 was to populate it with creatures unlike anything seen before in other genre films. Nowhere is that principle more evident than the briefly-glimpsed character of the Chamberlain, created by Spectral Motion surrealist artist/designer Chet Zar. “Guillermo originally gave us some of the parameters,” Zar said, “like he wanted a mechanical mask that was glued around the actor’s own mouth so the actor could use his mouth, but he wanted the rest to be mechanical, everything except the mouth basically, so I just went from there."

While Abe was an instant hit in the first film, Spectral Motion chief Mike Elizalde asked veteran suit creator José Fernandez to revamp the make-up, making it less labor-intensive. “I wasn’t making it look different,” Fernandez explained, “just easier for everybody involved. Before, Doug didn’t have any rubber on his legs; it was only make-up, which is also why it took so long, because they had to paint his legs every day. This time, I made legs for him that didn’t look like rubber, so that was a huge challenge, but I think the movement and the look were very successful.”
