If your Halloween costume needs a final touch of realism, or a bit of makeup artistry, stop by any of Northland Pioneer College’s three cosmetology centers on Wednesday or Thursday, Oct. 30 and 31, to have a few fake wounds or striking makeup applied for a $5 fee per wound or body area.
“From zombies and clowns to princesses and pirates, instructors and students are ready to add that special touch to your Halloween outfit,” says Chloe Fagotti, chair, faculty in Cosmetology at NPC. In addition to realistic moulage wounds and dramatic makeup, hair styling and coloring services are also available at discounted prices.
Cosmetology instructors and students have been refining their handiwork, applying wounds and makeup for regional disaster drills. Realistic gunshot and stab wounds, chemical burns and pieces of glass embedded in your flesh can add that extra special touch to that gruesome outfit.
Or, if you are going a for a little more artistic, original work, see your ideas come to life with NPC students’ and instructors’ creative talent. “We do more than just gore,” explains Fagotti.
You should allow at least one hour for the artists to apply the moulage and makeup.
