For anybody who does not know who Wonder Woman is …she is a superhero who first appeared in the American DC comic books and is one of the founding members of the “Justice League.” With her homeland of “Themyscira” she is in fact a Princess! She is as beautiful as Arthodite wiser as Athena and stronger than Hercules!
So, it will be easy to recreate that on the Actress Gal Gadot.
King Arthur, another legend from the folklore of the British isles. He led the defence of Britain against the Saxon invaders. The knights of the round table and Merlin and it all seems real….
Both these epic films were designed for hair and make up by Christine Blundell! And both released their sizzling trailers this week.
Christine, who with her main team, five of who were CBMA graduates as makeup trainees took another five CBMA Graduates, as makeup artists with her to Italy, where they were shooting scenes on location for the new Wonder Woman film.
They were responsible for making up armies of Amazonian fighters, some on horseback, who not only had to be protected by the sun, but have fake tan applied, hair pieces added, very glamorous make up, tattoos covered and sand removed on a daily basis. The team faced very long hours of climbing up and down inaccessible beaches in the heat, but the trailer shows the hard work was not in vain…the film looks Awesome!!
It was a fantastic project to be chosen to become Christine’s makeup trainee.
Christine also took out a whole team of CBMA graduates onto the filming of Guy Ritchie’s “King Arthur; Legend of the Sword”.
This is what our Academy is for – teaching the most relevant, essential skills to enable our graduates to be sought after in the industry. It is an achievement that should make Christine as proud as she should also be of these films….
Roll on 2017 when we can go and see them!!
