Super Heroes, Make up and Cupcakes

just your average Saturday
A few weeks ago we held our very first public Heroes vs Villains event in Liverpool. It was such a pleasure to be involved in such a creative enterprise and as a make up artist really lovely to be able to be imaginative and ramp up the crazy to warp speed.
The girls attending had told us in advance which characters they would like to become so myself, Lilly and Pooki-Rae spent a very enjoyable few weeks practising and perfecting various takes on these heroic homages. Sometimes our jobs rock!
The favourite looks I worked on were the Riddler and Queen Mab. I also adored creating Beast from X-men. I got through a lot of blue face paint!

The Riddler-The very talented Tracey made her dress and hat and even brought her own question mark staff

Bullseye-This was a perfect mix of comic book and sixties styling
The idea for this look came from the bright fur coat the girl owned. It then became one of the most striking looks of the day. Its brilliant when that happens.A tiny seed of an idea creates, well in this case a sexy version of Beast from X-Men
We were blown away by the costumes the girls created. Many of then were handmade or created from lots of different elements and it was hilarious to see them trooping in carrying swords, bowler hats and headpieces made of thorns.
Queen Mab from Shakespeare-My personal make up fave. So magical

This Roller derby chick made an awesome Batgirl

The afternoon went by in a flash. We had been supplied some gorgeous wigs by Wonderland which really helped bring the looks to life, nothing helps more with cosplay than a brightly covered wig. 
We also ordered cakes from a rather talented Liverpool baker called Say it with flours They very kindly created some make up themed cakes for me (well what did you expect) so it was really the perfect afternoon, cakes, music and lashing of make up.
How cute is this cake. Love how the false eyelashes match the icing
Being a Beast is hungry work

Nicky Rockets took some simply awe inspiring pictures and it was without doubt one of my favourite shoots to date.
Storm meets Ziggy Stardust

Yuki Most fruitful, a kick ass Manga character for the lovely Bobby-Lou (not your average baby bump picture)

If Ironman was a girl. This costume was a1950's inspired dress with all the Ironman elements and colours, genius

Harley Quinn as a showgirl. This very talented lady created her own rhinestone encrusted comic book/showgirl homage

We are now offering this package as a hen party option and have already had a few bookings which given that myself and Lilly came up with the idea because we are nerds and just really wanted an excuse to dress up ourselves is amazing.
