Face Off is an American reality television game show on the Syfy cable network in which a group of prosthetic makeup artists compete against each other to create prostheses such as those found in science fiction and horror films. Actress McKenzie Westmore, a member of the Westmore family of makeup artists, serves as the show's host, with judges being Academy Award-winning makeup artist Ve Neill (Ed Wood, Beetlejuice, Mrs. Doubtfire), and television and film makeup artist Glenn Hetrick (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Babylon 5). Creature designer and director Patrick Tatopoulos (I Am Legend, Resident Evil: Extinction, Underworld: Rise of the Lycans) served as judge for the first two seasons, but he was replaced by creature designer and concept artist Neville Page (Watchmen, Cloverfield, Avatar) from Season 3. Industry figures and artists including Brian Grazer, Kevin Smith, Paul W. S. Anderson, Greg Nicotero, Doug Drexler, and Gale Anne Hurd have served as guest judges. (source: en.wikipedia.org)
It's a whole new world with this season of Face Off! With the theme of Life And Death, contestants won't just be eliminated - they'll be killed! Just kidding.
After their first night in the gorgeous house as real contestants (so exciting, squeeel!) the artists meet McKenzie in New York. Just teasing, not New York, New York (is there an echo in here?), but New York Street at Universal Studios.
Have you ever heard the phrase, "Happier than a makeup artist during alien week"? Neither have we, but once we see the contestants' faces after Glenn and McKenzie tell them they'll be working solo to build an alien, we just might coin the phrase.
Guess what? We have a Foundation Challenge today, hooray! The contestants walk into the lab to see an array of models striking their very best "save the world" poses. McKenzie tells them they'll be basing an entire superhero, backstory and everything, on the costume that their model is wearing.
McKenzie takes the artists to a place where their inner kids can come out and play: the Wildlife Learning Center.
Somewhere over Sony Pictures Studios towers a giant sculpture of a rainbow, hearkening back to that groundbreaking film, The Wizard of Oz. McKenzie stands underneath the three-story rainbow amid a jumble of teacups and teapots, so the contestants know that whatever's ahead is going to be whimsical with a vengeance.
McKenzie summons the contestants to the lab where they encounter a heavy mist and a gothic mirror. She directs them to speak the name of Bloody Mary three times while looking into it.
