I recently worked on a gory film titled Batman: Retribution. It’s there that I met Special Effects makeup artist Myke Michaels. For 30 minutes he smeared me, poked me and shared an eccentric form of comic relief— when done I sprinted to set, worked for hours, and later asked for potty privileges. While traveling to Tinkle Town, I smiled from the pleasure of set life; long hours, blurry vision, sitting stiffly, and cheese ball snacks. Yes, I was living the dream. But when I opened the door to the restroom, my reflection stilled my heart, I was no longer me. Myke executed a makeup job so great, that it seemed as though I was having an out-of-body experience. True story.
After the big scare, I knew that he was amazing. But what I didn’t know, was that he’s fabulous. Google him.

And because I adore you and realize that zombies are the superstars of the moment— I’ve pulled a wonderful video of Myke creating a “Walker” look that’s great for parties, films, shopping, and interviews. #Iamlaughingoutloud #killingmyself
Now let us enjoy some zombie action!
