He’s an ace. She’s a queen.
Special Effects Makeup Demonstration
Friday Feb 12th 7:00pm
Complimentary wine and chocolate
Special effects makeup artist Rick Prince from the SyFy channel show Face Off, Disney, and Universal Studios transforms passionate NECAT partner/Ascend Federal Credit Union Chief Marketing Officer Kim York into a royally mischievous Queen of Hearts. Kim and her company have a deep and abiding love affair with arts, education, and locally-created television, so it’s only fitting that friends, fans, and budding makeup artists gather to honor that passion for our community in an evening of giggles, smiles, winks, fluttering hearts, and personal stories as Rick creates reality from imagination.
Taking questions from the audience and describing his step-by-step process, Rick will explain the creation of the custom facial prosthetics he applies to Kim, the airbrushed and hand-applied makeup, special tips and tricks, and head-to-toe wig and costume choices in the creation of his elaborate character. A largely self-taught artist, he will share stories from his career in TV, film, Comic Cons around the world, and his work with adults and teenagers as Artist-in-Residence right here at NECAT.
This event is appropriate for all ages.
Guests are encouraged to take photos with Rick and Kim after the transformation and are even invited to record special Valentine’s Day videos on our Green Screen in the TV studio to share with friends and via social media.
