An artiste at work mu-st always make sure his actor / model / client is comfortable while being painted, pinned, poked, preened. Tres importante my friends. Plus....you yourself mu-st be relaxed and at ease while working. No point breaking your back and contorting yourself into 'cirque de soleil' positions while working only to find you can't walk the next day. Let's think long-term my friends and think sensibly. A make-up chair should be the right height for you to create your designs at leisure. It will free you up so much and let you concentrate on working. The MUs are finally investing in some lovely chairs found at the Kryolan shop in Bombay, Beauty Palace. They are worth every rupee my darlings...totally ergonomic (Mulain's buzz word of the day) and look pretty cool too.
We need to know how long our actor / model / client will be in the chair for...for a heavy-duty prosthetic job which can take hours....their comfort and your comfort are vital.
Lon Chaney nicknamed "The Man of a Thousand Faces," was an American actor during the age of silent films. He was one of the most versatile and powerful actors of early cinema. He is best remembered for his characterizations of tortured, often grotesque and afflicted characters, and his groundbreaking artistry with film makeup. Mulain loo-ves him......His look below for 'The Phantom of the Opera' took 10.5 hours!!!!! Let's hope he had a nice pink, comfy chair and music to listen too.....a true cinema soldier for sure.....
So know Mulain is lecturing you ...but think comfort for all involved in your work......and a have a wonderful day my darlings...off to meet the MU's at the Dynamix Mall, Juhu...make-up shopping on...my favourite.
