The second part of the finale had the artists tweaking their makeups to suit what the directors needed. Walter and Melissa didn’t have too much more to do, but Rob would have to redo his makeups from scratch. They had very little time left, but a visit from their loved ones helped spur them on. Walter’s wife, Melissa’s hubby and son, and Rob’s parents gave them some much-needed support before they went full force to finish their makeups for their films.
The each arrived at the creepy mansion on the oilfield to shoot their scenes, and as noted in the previous post, Jason Blum would be on the reveal stage to help judge the final films and makeup.
Melissa finished her molds on set. She got Johnny to affix the appliances differently so they would hold up to the actor’s sweat. Melissa bounced between makeups to get everything finished. On set, the judges thought she hit the right notes for her director John Wynn. He asked her to add a bit more sheen to the possessed makeup and make the demon eye more gooey. She was happy with how the makeup turned out and thanked her “Team Badass” for their help. The film was called Hellhole: The Possession and the judges thought it was a cohesive makeup and liked the organic elements in the prosthetics. Jason Blum thought her creativity with the cyclops demon was great and her director thought she did something really different with the concept.
Rob had a lot of work to do. He needed Anna to do a more simple possession makeup and he had to get rid of the demon’s horn to make the look more sleek; while Kaleb worked on new shoulder pieces. On set he was terrified but excited. Anna blended the prosthetics like a maniac, and Rob came up with a gag to make oil seep out of the demon’s eye. He was happy with the end result, but was apprehensive about what his director Bryce McGuire would say. Luckily, he only asked for dust on the demon and to keep the possessed makeup hair wet so the oil wouldn’t cake. The judges liked the eye gag that worked really well, and Rob was happy with his team and thought it was the best creature he’d ever made. Neville thought he gave them a classic demon that told the story, and they loved the possessed makeup for the J-horror feel. Glenn thought Rob focused on the right things, and his director thought he was a stroke of genius. The film, Hellhole: Dead Earth, took place in 1929, and impressed the judges. Ve also loved the horns that looked like a crown on the demon.
Walter was prepared and ready to get to the film set. Mel made sure not to overdo the painting this time around, and they all focused on the many details to make the characters camera ready for director Ryan Spindell. The judges loved the integrated vines in the possession makeup, and thought the demon looked “rad” under the lights. Ve liked the demon’s boils on one of the biggest makeups on the show, and Neville thought they covered a lot of work. In the film Hellhole: Dark Harvest, the demon looked great!
The winner was Rob! He was grateful for this life changing experience, and was happy to share the moment with his parents. He walks away with a Fiat 500, $100,000 and a visit to one of Kryolan’s 85 international locations.
All the finalists were really talented and deserved to be there. Congrats to Rob! Now we have to wait for the next season to see more crazy challenges and innovative makeups!
