Theatre Makeup: A place for the fans
My name's Lindsey. I stumbled upon the community after browsing through the CATS makeup board. I won't lie - I know nothing about CATS makeup, but I can certainly appreciate the work done by other musical theatre fans. I'm a Phantom of the Opera girl myself - mostly of the ALW stage show, but I love nearly every other incarnation of the story (2004 movie excluded...best to not get me started on that film ;-). Aside from POTO, I enjoy a number of other shows.
I'm very interested in recreating Phantom's deformities featured in the stage show, and have progressively refined my process over the last year and a half. I've always kept things "on a budget," making the prosthetics from cotton and latex, but this year I'll be stepping up to full on molds, bald caps, wigs...basically everything one sees in the stage show. I'm very excited about the transition, even though my bank account is not.
I have two websites, one is my main site entitled Phantom on a Budget. There you'll find Phantom makeup photos and instructions, costume photos, and some humor. The entire thing's a bit tongue-in-cheek. I also have a new LJ community where friends and I discuss various POTO-related makeup techniques, supplies, etc.
( More photos and supply list under the cutCollapse )
That's it for me. I'll be hanging around this community, as I love to see what other people come up with. :)
