There are many different forms.)<br />Set with a neutral powder<br />Don’t forget prosthetics that humans don’t have (animal ears, whiskers, gills, ect.)<br />Air brushing may be used when necessary/appropriate.<br />

  17. 17. Feel Free to SPICE things UP!<br />Not all characters are the same, but here are some ideas to think about.<br />Foggy contacts (if in budget) are a great idea for sight impaired characters. <br />Droop eyeliner down for sad, distressed, or old-aged eyes. <br />Add fake eyelashes, bushy eyebrows, or anything else you can think of!<br />
  18. 18. Gore<br />Once again, prosthetics are used<br />Skin glue and blending are key<br />Keep in mind the accident that takes place in the performance<br />It may be necessary to work alongside the costuming department for missing limbs or other illusions. <br />
  19. 19. HAVE FUN!!!! <br />As with anything, the energy you put in, is the amount you will get out. You’re audience will love you!<br />
