Its been a while, yes indeed it has. I have been lost in a world of fiber glass, plaster banadages, life casts, alginate, things that sting, itch, burn, stick to, and generally irritate ones epidermis in a most fun and exciting way....two challenging, but ultimately satisfying, weeks of prosthetics. I have a million photos of each and every crucial step of the past 2 weeks, but to prevent boredom i shall whip thru the most interesting ones so im basically skipping the first 4 days....

Body painting week this week.
A brief snap shot of our Halloween party last weekend. Some of the best outfits around town in my opinion.

And so it came, our very first assessment of our 1 year complete make up artistry course. To say our class was nervous was an understatement, tempers became fractious and the tension rose as we were each given a different brief, followed by 1 night to plan our attack, and then execute the next day. A small brown hat full of scraps of pending doom was thrust at each of us as we plucked out a scrap of paper that contained our brief. Mine was first up, i picked a fairly modestly sized slither of white and unfolded it. 1 sentence only, 'A drug addict who has been shot in the head'...."hmm nice" i thought as i headed back to my seat, my head already filling with fantastically theatrical outfits, props and, oh yes, the make up.... that night Jodi, Elle and i headed to our best thinking place, the pub. 1 very fast beer gulped down we each headed home for a night of planning. This is my finished product:
