greasepaint

Anyone who has ever had anything to do with the stage, theatre, or even tech work knows the familiar stench of greasepaint... ahem, face makeup. Today the makeup and hair crew experimented on me and a few other fellow actors for our fast-looming (march24march24march24) production of Antigone. Anyone else reminded of Black Swan? It's supposed to be like a Greek mask, but I can't help thinking "Natalie Portman".

(Edited these with my new Photoshop CS5 Extended! Yayayay. So much better than the previous Photoshop — it was just CS, didn't even have a number! — I had on my old computer. Blah. Now I have the whole Creative Suite for CS5... Fireworks, Soundbooth, Flash Builder, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, Indesign, even Premiere Pro for movies, and so many more... whoopee! I am an Adobe fan.)


They crimped my hair, too. I'm not sure my hair likes being crimped...


The above photos are only about half the makeup, too. Here's how it looked initially... (bad webcam pic from our little makeup nook in the cafeteria...)
