Dubai Zombie challenge
I attended the three days Dubai zombie challenge that took place in wonderland, Dubai from 7th till 9th of April 2016
The event was organised and supervised by the famous French Le Manoir de Paris, they are specialised in makeup and special effects.
There were 2 amazing ladies Laura and Dalila they were responsible for the clients that wants to change into zombies, they took good care of them with smiles and love from the entrance till the makeup room, and they also were supervising the whole event.
Then another French person to train the new zombies, in addition to two more men that were responsible for all the details of the game from maintenance to the safety of the clients, They were very well organised and they planned everything that they even had first aid kit to help the clients.
First day i went before we start we had a meeting with the two professional French makeup artists Emilia and Camilla we were seven makeup artists in addition to them, by the second day we ended up in only 5 persons, they divide us as follows
- One group for the latex
- One group for the Air brush
- One group for coloring details
- One group for the final touch of clothes and hair and rest of the body
- Camilla and Emilia took over the Air brush details and were also overlooking all the groups to make sure that we were on the right track
They also decide that we rotate every day so that we all get to learn everything in the process, also during the breaks they encouraged us to practice on our own bodies to learn more all the tricks.
They were both very supportive and helpful they treated us as a team, they fluded us with all the experience and data needed to make sure that we become experts in such a short time, doing all the tricks and moves live really made a difference with us.
They were answering all the questions asked, it was really not only an event it was like a professional special effects course and workshop at the same time.
We had a lot of fun with all of them we even had the chance to try the game itself .
I am really happy I was chosen to attend this event i learned totally new things in a very interesting filed of makeup which is the special effects, I want to thank Livia in the first place she is the one who recommended me to the group of the event, thanks for the support Lipstick Makeup institute.
