Saturday night in Louisville, at the Fright Night Film Festival, the main hall played host to an array of events, none more interesting in its time slot as the Masquerade Ball and as the highlight of the ball, the Body Paint Show took center stage. Evil Fire Lizard sponsored the show and eight models showcased the artistic talents of the Wolfe Brothers, Brian and Nick along with the help of all the others at Evil Fire Lizard, Inc.
Brian and Nick are avid believers in everything Goth and Halloween, thus they are the kings of the world, the make-up world. The brothers and their crew began to ‘dress’ the models beginning at 5 pm Saturday for the 9 pm show; yes, it takes that long to paint ladies. The Wolfe brothers allowed me a behind the scenes view as the paint went on and the night got rockin’.
Each model began with a base coat over her body, so the colors would adhere. Once the base coat was applied, the color paint went on. Each model selected a character based on her personality and preference. The range of personalities ranged from quiet to loud, giving the artistic team varied canvases on which to paint. There was a quiet little kitty cat to a very friendly red devil. The artistic team added masks and applied accessories to complete the ensembles of the girls just in time to have them walk the catwalk.
The room was packed while we all waited for the ladies to enter the room. The music cued and the emcee began to announce the names of the ladies as they processed across the stage to the music of their choice. I got some great pics of the girls as they walked the stage to the sounds of an adorning crowd. I must say the crowd was a huge support to these ladies as the cheers were so loud, the ladies showed their paint a second time! I cannot wait to see these guys in action next year!
Evil Fire Lizard also hosted an all day make up class and then sponsored the makeup wars. The class gave a lot of helpful tips to artists who work in the area. The Make Up Wars pitted three teams against each other to see who could come up with the best ‘face’ in an hour. Evil Fire Lizard awarded cash prizes and the contents of the provided kits to each team. There are pictures of the war posted as well!
