Expo 2013 Makeup Sessions

LeahVoiceLeahVoice Hobgoblin of Good GroomingFerndale, MI Icrontian
Hi Folks,

For those that don't know me, I am *slightly* obsessed with makeup. I know that makeup might not be the first thing that you think of when you think of Icrontic, but some basic knowledge and solid application of makeup can be the start of a great cosplay or Halloween costume. I wouldn't be giving makeovers; these would more like lessons that would hopefully give you the some knowledge and confidence in the area of special fx or beauty makeup. So, would anyone be interested in a makeup workshop at Expo 2013? This can go a few ways:

1. A 45-60 minute class that goes over basic special fx. We'd go over things like using liquid latex, applying simple prosthesis, stippling, simple blending, face paint-y stuff, etc.

2. A 45-60 minute class going over beauty makeup. This would be more for everyday wear and we'd go over a basic smoky eye, winged eyeliner, blush and contour placement, etc.

3. Individual 20-40 minute sessions. This would be for anyone who has a specific character, look or idea in mind. We'd review your idea and go over an individualized plan of how to make that character/look work for you. This could be for special fx or beauty. I'd limit these to the first 6-8 people and we'd fit them in between your other events/sessions.

Would any of these interest any of you? Which of the above scenarios are you most interested in? Let me know-thanks!

    I'm absolutely down for learning makeup application! The costume application would be great knowledge, but I would also be interested in learning about customization with smokes, application of various colors at once, etc... The individual scenario would be my number 1 choice, then the costume, then the basic everyday wear. Great idea ;)

    Did anyone else read this topic as Epic 2013 Makeout Sessions? Or was it just me?

    That's like asking, are the mermaids in the ocean, or is it just me?

    So far this year I imagine Epic as a large get together of naked people making out during a tea party while eating horse meat sandwiches.

    I don't think it will be horse meat.

    @LeahVoice would you be willing to do an eyebrow session?

    Okay, so I got 3-ish people for special fx so far. (I'm going to assume that once word gets out about this that there will be an explosion of people who can't wait to learn proper stippling techniques and the numbers will soar to well over 9000....) And a few people interested in individual sessions. So right now, I'm thinking a special fx session and a few individual sessions (@Annes and @jboogaloo) for funsies....

    The art of Makeup is on the Expo schedule! It'll be on Thursday at 9:00 pm. It will be conflicting with the Civilization V tournament. Remember this class will be geared to makeup for costumes/cons/cosplay/special effects and not beauty/glamour stuffs. If you want beauty/glamour stuffs, message me and we can find a time to do an individual session. If you are planning on attending the makeup workshop, please let me know because there will be a hands-on activity and a small fee.

    Kinda bummed I won't be attending Expo this year because I was REALLY looking forward to this part (costume and SFX especially). Is there any way some videos could be captured and shared later covering techniques and such? It may be a long shot, but I have to ask :)
  • LeahVoiceLeahVoice Hobgoblin of Good Grooming Ferndale, MI Icrontian
    @jboogaloo Aw man, I'm sorry you're not able to go this year. I have no idea what potential there is for a video set-up. @primesuspect and @lincoln Are there any plans for a video feed at Expo?

    We have the ability to run 1 video feed, but not record it. I don't think it'll work particularly well for virtual attendance, it's more of a "look at all the people" type video feed.

    Hi Folks!
    I need to start getting some commitments for this because there will be a small (under $5.00) materials fee. Please let me know if you are planning on attending. This makeup class is NOT a glamour/every day makeup kind of thing! we will be doing stuff with more of a stage makeup bent, plus latex prosthetics and an introduction to mold-making. There will also be a hands on activity and a take-home goodie bag!

    Please let me know if you are attending!

    I'm working on makeup all this weekend for this and making a tentative outline. We're going to be looking at basic things like blending, simple contouring and skin prep and moving onto really fun stuff like liquid latex, rigid collodion, false lash application, blood, etc. Attendees may want to wear an old shirt if you're a little on the messy/clumsy side. The materials fee will be $10.00 which is going to cover materials and a hands on activity (if you are unable to pay due to financial considerations, please msg me.) There may also be a gift if you stay for the whole class!! If you have your own makeup brushes, please bring them for the activity.
    I am seriously so excited to be sharing all this stuff with you guys and I can't wait to see everyone!
