In order to match the real mannequins on the stand, I'd been asked to use white make-up. Screwfix had requested two male mannequins so I teamed up with a mannequin performer friend of mine, Denis.
These days I prefer to use liquid latex in order to get the most realistic mannequin effect. One disadvantage with using white latex is that you require many more coats to achieve a strong white colour covering. Denis had opted to shave his head, (that's dedication) so his make-up took longer to apply, whereas I had already made a white latex wig, which made my make-up application slightly quicker.
The event ran over three days and had many thousands of visitors, with a huge footfall past the stand we were on. We each stood on a different corner of the stand. The reactions were amazing, and many selfies with the mannequins were taken.
