Airbrush Designs

Posted on 15 June, 2016 at 20:15 Comments comments (0)

I long resisted using an airbrush for body painting, temporary tattoos and T-shirt/tote bag creations. Why? Carrying around a large/heavy compressor and regularly having to clean out blocked airguns for a start. However - I have now (at last!) taken up this challenging artistic technology thanks to client demand. At parties and festivals my colleagues and I can swiftly write freehand 'names' or 'stencil' images. Designs can also be pre-done before the event. This creative service is massive i...

Mask Making for Different Theme Looks

Posted on 4 March, 2016 at 19:55 Comments comments (0)

I have made many different full face masks for our Mystique Masquerade meet and greet characters; here are a few...  I spray painted plain, papier mache, mask bases and added the features and embelishments on top. You can get so many theme looks from the same mask - by just adding different wigs, head-dresses, costumes and accessories. These are all for sale along with their costumes. Workshops are available too.

Vintage Usherette & Hostess Total Look Styling by Laura Millar

My agency has many stock mix and match retro usherette and hostess costumes. I particularly like red, black, and hot pink for impact.

For 30's to 50's Vintage hair I go for a slick, French pleat or victory rolls. For make up I love that Dita Von Teese look; pale skin, red lips, black liquid eye liner next to false side lashes.

Below these gorgeous model hostesses were booked to assist at large charity ball auction at Grosvenor House. Kylie Minogue was p...

Face Art by Laura Millar

Posted on 25 September, 2015 at 13:40 Comments comments (0)

I just love painting faces - but especially 'face art' for teens and young people. Children enjoy having full or half faces but I get many requests from youths and adults - where I need to produce something a little more grown-up. So a small, swirling side design around the temple and cheek area is perfect for a festival or clubbing look. For blokes and edgy girls I tend to go for plain black tribal/south seas designs - often with day glow/UV highlights.
