Len’s First Foray Into Makeup

So, as we posted Frank’s first foray into makeup, I felt it only right (plus we said we would on show 1) that I should post my first foray into makeup. This is around Halloween 1982. I used the Dick Smith TV/Movie Horror Makeup Kit that I got for Christmas a few years earlier. I remember trying to work the Flexi-Flesh material and by the time I was using this stuff, I ran out of the flesh colored blending stick, so I had to use this blue color that I found somewhere.  Whatever I couldn’t color, I just covered up with fake blood.  Anyhow, I have a few other photos, but those will have to saved for another time.

On our first episode, Frank talks about his earliest forays into makeup and creature design.  He just sent me some photos from the “good old days”.  You gotta admit, this is pretty good stuff from a kid.

As soon as I get back home to my mom’s place, I’ll post my makeups as well. They are nowhere as good as Frank’s. On second thought, maybe I won’t embarrass myself.

Great job, Frank!
