  1. Hi Barry,
    I recognized your name from a long time ago. Day of the Dead? I took a small class in horror make-up application techniques at a little costume shop in Plantation FL about 20 something years ago. I still use those things I learned every year around halloween time. I will come say hi at the Faire assuming I make it there. :)

  2. Hello Jason,
    good to hear from you, WOW that was a long time ago for sure Annies Costumes I believe? yes I worked on George Romero’s Day of the Dead back in Dec. 1984 in the scenes shot here in Florida working with Tom Savini and a bunch of talented folks making Zombies. the workshop was a basic makeup effects class and I am glad it came in usefull for you during Halloween. please stop over and say hello at my booth.
