THAT is a photo of a makeup job done by Hollywood makeup artist, Cat Elrod, who happens to be doing the zombie makeup for Never Slow Dance With A Zombie Fest. The subject is a fashion model turned... scary as hell!
I met Cat on a shoot I did in the spring. She was just doing regular makeup for the principal cast. She showed me her book with examples of her work. I noticed there were lots of zombies and wounded people. When I asked what was up with the special makeup she said she LOVES doing zombies. I kept that in mind.
When I called Cat the other day she had just finished another zombie flick. At first she thought she couldn't do it. She's really busy making living people look dead. But then she realized she had Saturday off, and when I told her what I wanted she got excited. We met today and finalized the deal. I have so many friends and fans who want to be zombies for the fest, and now they are going to get done up by a Hollywood pro. Jealous? I promise I will take pictures.
Oh yeah, a friend's 9 year-old daughter is coming as a witch. She's not into zombies yet. Maybe we can persuade her to be a zombie-witch ;)
For those of you who have not yet responded for the fest--don't bother. I had an overwhelming number of responses today. We are overbooked. Sorry. Maybe next time.
Also, I was at the venue today looking at the decorations, and making final arrangements. This is going to be sooo fun. I had dinner with a friend who asked if I'd been practicing the Zombie Dance. No, I haven't. But, trust me, I am going to Zombie Dance.
I have some great surprises and announcements to make at the fest, like my next exciting project. I seriously can't wait. Seriously! I'm like a kid at Christmas.
Okay, okay, I'll stop talking about the Never Slow Dance With A Zombie Fest.
Sorry. I don't have anything else to talk about...
Sleep tight, don't let the zombies bite.
