As the adage goes, it takes a village to raise a zombie stripper from the dead. In this case, the task of transforming actress Elle Evans into the ambulatory corpse fell to Hugo Villasenor, Danielle Noe, Ralis Kahn and Vito Trotta, who applied the design that make-up designers Tony Gardner and Michele Tyminski conjured up.

"When we were designing her look," explains Tyminski, "our idea was that she would still look beautiful, even in death. … Our biggest challenge was time. We had to paint and add tattoo vein transfers over her entire body, even the bottoms of her feet, as the plan was for the character to end the scene in just the bikini bottoms.

"Fortunately," continues Gardner, "Elle was very comfortable in her own skin, being a model, and she made us feel comfortable as well, so that we could tag-team several artists on her to get the job done. One of the biggest concerns on set was the amount of physical activity Elle had to go through while wearing this full-body make-up, from working on the catwalk and pole to doing ALL of her own stunts. And the amount of bloodwork required for her scene, as well as the ability to clean her completely up and reshoot sections as needed, added another challenge to her character."

Additional Information
3D veining: Raised transfer veins from Alterian Inc., applied prior to make-up and coloring. “All vein work was done with custom tattoo transfers from Alterian Inc.,” explain Gardner and Tyminski together, via email, “with subtle surface mottling around the veins included in the transfer art. Reel Creations Body Art Inks in Purple, Black and Blue were airbrushed to connect the tattoo artwork, as needed. PPI Skin Illustrator in Bone was airbrushed lightly over the top of the finished make-up, to add an intrinsic quality to the veins. Make-up was sealed with Ben Nye Final Seal and Kryolan Fixing Spray.” Dr. Jonathan Gording provided fogged and bloodshot contact lenses.
