Oh man oh man….
This was insane!
I legitimately still cannot believe that I made it to the finale, with two AMAZING makeup artists!!!
Andrew with his speed and accuracy. Years of experience sculpting Halloween masks and other special effects pieces has really given his artistic hand some amazing muscle memory. He knows EXACTLY what to pull out of the drawer when it came to each challenge.
KC with her ability to manage enormous amounts of sculpting work in such a small amount of time, and create amazingly creative silhouettes was always putting me in awe.
On top of that, most of the cast was brought back!!! YAS!!! I was so excited! SO stoked to finally be able to work with Phil, I had heard so many amazing things about how awesome he did with sculpture, and following a design aesthetic, and they weren’t lying! On top of that, he was a BEAST in the mold room! He tackled those molds with no problem, I’m pretty sure he didn’t even break a sweat!
And Suzanne! I LOVE this chick, she has so much tenacity, and she is just a constant source of cheer. Add being a fabrication NUT to that, and we had a very special ally on our side! I knew I could trust her to create something, even if I gave her a basic scribble to work with.
Let me tell you, Glenn was AMAZING to work along side with. Its a TOTALLY different experience to have him next to you, rather than staring down at you. Getting his input, I could feel his excitement, and enthusiasm for Haunted Houses, and it really lit a fire in me to pull through for his vision. His critique and suggestion to our ideas was absolutely fantastic. He truly just wants to have fun, making some gnarly beasts! Being a noob at all of this, all I wanted was that fatherly nod of approval. That’s all I could ask for at this stage of the competition.
One day, I would love to be able to do what they all do, and combine it into something awesome!
This was only PART ONE of the challenge, folks!!! I can’t wait to see what happens next week!
I've only ever seen a single episode of Avatar: The Last Airbender which was the episode The Great Divide, which i thought was terrible and led to me dismissing the show. However I recently learnt that apparently this is considered the worst episode in the entire show so perhaps I should give it another look.
