Face Off is a competition/elimination series exploring the world of special-effects make-up artists and the unlimited imagination that allows them to create amazing works of living art. Each week the artists are tasked with using their considerable talent to create original movie-worthy characters such as aliens, human-animal hybrids, horror villains, cyborgs and others. Challenges incorporate a wide range of skill sets including design, sculpting, molding and application. It all builds to incredible reveals of the competitors' finished work and the drama of one artist being sent home by the expert panel of judges.
In my version of Face Off, I am madly problem-solving my way through ONE little's Halloween costume, as the clock ticks down to the last moment. I am the contestant who will be sent home. The other two costumes are resolved and finished, but one costume always consumes three times more hours than expected and requires way more brain power than I'd planned.
Last Year's Costumes:
This was THE ONE last year. Started it two weeks in advance. Looks straightforward. Wasn't. Talking about it makes me twitch.
It is now 9pm.
