2005 Beauties, beasts and Folkteatern

What a year! Most likely the year I will talk about before I die....
The beast! We travelled all over Sweden with this play and soooo many TV shows. Fred was a great guy to work with!
And then when I felt like I couldn't top myself at the opera I quit and started working at Folkteatern.
The first thing there was a really fun fantasy wig wig thing! Great year!
"Beauty and the beast" The GothenburgOpera 2005 the first time ever a Disney musical was allowed to do their own designs. This was a really fun show to make. We (The wonderful Kerstin Olsen and me) worked really hard and long hours but it was an experience of a life time. Here you can see me doing a test sculpt for the beast. Fred Johansson who got to be glued on soooo much as the beast. He is a really great guy! My favorite shot of the beast. On these early makeup tests I thought that the beard was a bit too big. So I changed it. Still a bit thick here.  Before you get the right look you need a lot of tests! This is stunt mask for the next to last scene when the real beast was out preparing for the transformation. I love this shot!
2005-25 The witch mask sculpt. The finished silicone mask. 2005-4 The face was very exagerated to catch the low light on stage The mask was worn by a dancer on the top of her head and it was ripped off in a blink of an eye to transform her into a beautiful young woman Here is Karolina Krigsman peaking out from underneath the mask. Annika Edstam the beauty together with Fred Johansson the beast I sculpted three gargoyles for the play.These were cast in latex so the moulds had to be plaster.
I messed up my back so bad when doing these.... The mold and sculpture most likely weighed over 75 kilos... 2005-16 2005-17 2005-18 2005-19 I built the bodies with foam and then wardrobe made suits to fit on top. Heres two of them posing. Lumiere the lovable candle played by Lars Hjertner.
I built the head piece and hand pieces. Daniel Engman and monsigniour Darque. Yes, I know it has been spelt wrong. I love doing strong theatre makeups like this one. 2005 For an opera I needed to make an injured eye. As most of the time my choice of material went to Plat gel 10 silicone. I love it!

Some teeth for a revue Some teeth for a revue processen affisch web For the first play (The Trial by Franz Kafka) on my new job at Folkteatern I did a lot of fantasy wigs using everything except hair. It was a lot of fun but I only had three weeks to make 15 wigs.
