October 9th, 2017

With the Ireland competition done and dusted, it is time to gear up for the Warpaint North Championships in Manchester.  This year’s themes are very exciting and we can’t wait to see the looks that you’ll create.  All categories are open to both pros and students, so make sure you check the correct registration pack as, for some, there are different rules for each level.

Film and TV  – Theme: The Tudors

Two hours will be allowed for this category – 10:30 – 12:30

One of the most iconic royal houses in English history, The Tudors ruled for a total of 118 years, during which time, there were huge political and social changes that threatened the stability of England.  From the Battle of Bosworth and the war against the Spanish Armada, to Henry VIII’s decision to leave the Catholic Church and form the Church of England, with notorious divorces and multiple wives.  Life at court was marked by opulence, excess and luxury with fashion for the nobility being very elaborate and detailed.  Each Queen of Henry VIII set fashion trends that was reflected in clothing and wig styles.  Your character will be living during this time and accurately represent this period so do your research well.

Judges are Film Makeup Designer, Nadia Stacey, and SFX wizard, Mike Peel of Rogue Creations.
