I’m a huge fan of the Syfy show “Face Off“. If you missed the first season, it’s a show about make up special effects. You start out with a group of make up artists/designers and each week they have to complete a different task and then at the end, we crown a winner. That’s the short version anyway!
While walking around Gaslamp on my way back to the hotel one day I came across live auditions for the show. I had heard about the event but wasn’t sure where it was exactly and I had enough on my plate to begin with. I was pleasantly surprised to see that it was very assessable. It was held at what I believe was normally a restaurant that had an area open to the street, like most in the area. A semi-large crowd had gathered to watch the artist transform their models. I don’t know if there was a theme or how it all worked. I know they only had a certain amount of time to complete the task though. Here are a few photos I managed to snag:
Pretty amazing right? My favorite is the 2nd creation. I have no idea what it is, but it’s awesome. I honestly think the one with the extra arm looks a little rough. I didn’t see the finish product though. Maybe it turned out better. The extra arm just looks off for some reason. I mean, it looks fake to me. It wouldn’t fool me in a movie or TV show that’s for sure.
Did anyone else happen to catch this?
