2016 Makeup Contest

Event:2016 Makeup Contest
Location:Crystal A

Time:
Saturday May 28th 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm

The Crypticon Seattle Makeup is returning for its 7th year! The competition features 5 artists applying makeup before a live audience at the convention. All artists have access to a professional stage makeup kit supplied by the Nightmare at Beaver Lake along with a limited supply of items from the contest pantry. 1 hour prior to the contest our competitors receive a briefing of the competition as well as the theme for this years contest. At the end of two hours, their creations will be judged by a panel of industry professionals on technique, design, artistic creativity and originality, and adherence to theme. The 2016 contest is closed to entries so if you want to compete, you’ll have to wait till 2017. In the mean time, feel free to check out the rules of the competition.

Congratulations to the artists in the finals: returning artist Thomas Bailey; returning artist Drew Mullins; Rebecca “Bex” Crouch; Hannah Sturtevant; and Amanda McGahey.

Our Judges for this year’s competition will be: the 2015 Crypticon Seattle Makeup Contest winner, Jennifer Frazier Luke; 2011 Contest winner Kenneth Calhoun – a professional artist working under Emmy Award winning Brian Sipe; finally- Claire Brooksbank, who continues her work on the Syfy hit series, Z Nation.

Our past winners include Dutch Bihary, of Game Show Network’s hit series “Skin Wars”, Kenneth Calhoun, and up and coming winner of the 2014 contest, Erik Albidress.
