Once a mild mannered mature college student, Myles went out on a pub crawl in Dublin one evening only to discover he was on the WRONG place at the WRONG time …… He got bitten! by an infected zombie and now roams the streets and […]

Eyelash extensions are great for special occasions, for a pick me up or holidays! no one wants to feel the NEED to wear mascara, with eyelash extensions you can feel hot in the heat with no makeup on!
I recommend having your lashes tinted two or three days before getting extensions done as this helps to blend in the extensions and gives better for visiblity attachment of the lashes.
Lash extensions are done by separating the lashes and singling out one lash on which to stick an individual eyelash extension. this is dont one by one to each until all are done.
If properly cared for they can last up to two to three weeks. If wearing makeup it is recommended to use an ”oil free’ makeup remover to clean your face and eye area so as not to dissolve or soften the glue used on the eyelashes.
I was absolutely delighted to be involved in Dublin’s first gay pride body painting jam. Check out the short video of me and the rest of the artists painting 🙂
I couldnt quite decide what to paint my model as so i went for a type of zombie hippy chick, I used aqua colour paints combined with glitter, plastic gems, and some lovely props provided by my model! After a good 3 to 4 hours of painting we went to the Dublin gay pride parade and the place was a buzz!! We walked for hours in the sunshine cheering and dancing, what a great day! I was very proud to be a part of it and cannot wait for next year!
I was lucky to have a very patient and talented model Klara Mc Donnell
I had the pleasure of learning how to make prosthetic pieces at ”Bowsie workshop” in Dublin over the duration of my college course. The staff were very friendly and taught us all a lot. Everything from materials and their uses to how to cast a persons head from beginning to end.
To make a face cast It all starts with slathering the actor in alginate, then wrapping plaster bandages around it to reinforce the cast.
After this has set you will be left with a beautiful face cast of that person which can be filled with plaster and then mould clay upon it into whatever shape you want the prosthetic to become.I chose to make mine into a sort of Seahorse human hybrid. My prosthetic this time around evolved more into a mask like form. I had to use a piece of foam latex shaved into shape then stick it onto the rest of the prosthetic.The edges were a little thicker than i wanted them to be but I think we made it work. I used plastic in a vac form machine to make the eye balls so that she would still be able to see out of the mask.
