Behind the Screams

We make monsters every day. It takes time and talent to create the perfect creature of the dead but we pride ourselves on bringing the dead back to life. You'll meet a few of them... but here is a sneak peek of what brings the perfect fright.

Our makeup process takes time and practice but when the proper talent and technique is used the effects can be spooktacular and quite horrifying!

We recommend starting off the look with a good pair of special effect contact lenses, they’ll really help to bring you monster to life. For a real shock factor we recommend Whiteout or White Zombie styles, available in store!

We use a combination of grease and water-based paints. Grease paints come off over time so our performers will often use water-based to last the distance. You’ll need a good brush to apply the finer details to your face so it’s worth picking one up from your local chemists. Ben Nye do some brilliant colour wheels and Mehon Stage Blood can be fantastic for adding that gore factor!

Please share with us online (via Facebook and Instagram) if you’re making some spooky creations, we love to see what our Fear Fans are up to!

When it comes to Halloween, we like to pull out all the stops, which often means cracking into a bottle of liquid latex and using a variety of prosthetics.

We highly recommend looking at our youtube channel for more advanced techniques and some really cool unique characters.
