The popular show The Doctors TV series has featured EI Make Up Artistry on their Halloween 2013 program. We were thrilled to be asked to be a part of such a wonderful TV series.
Our makeup artists immediately went into action to create a unique look for the doctors. This year’s Halloween theme was Hollywood Celebrities from the past. It is a theme that has definitely been done before, however we decided to create a twist. Instead of just creating each character to look similar to the celebrity, we created them in black & white.
The techniques that are used for black & white special fx make-up creations require different skills than color makeup creations. Because you can’t use color to denote features, you must use shading techniques and the right products. Additionally, it is very important to be familiar with facial structures; both that of the actor and the character being created.
The final result was Dr. Travis Stork as James Dean, Dr. Jim Sears as Charlie Chaplin, Dr. Drew Ordon as Elvis, Dr. Ian Smith as Jackie Robinson, Dr. Jennifer as Marilyn Monroe, and Dr. Rachael Ross as Lucille Ball.
We would like to thank the entire staff and crew at “The Doctors” TV show for allowing us to express our creativity and to be a part of your show.
