MagicCon 2 | Vortrag | From Fantasy to Reality

Manuel D’Andrea’s MagicCon panel From Fantasy to Reality is about the art of bringing magical and imaginative characters to life.

To explain the process of how to bring to life a character that we see in a movie, game etc, Manuel will divide the panel in 4 sections of around 15 minutes each: Makeup, wigs, contact lenses and a small section at the end for audience questions.

Manuel will explain the basics and the main differences between products and he will give tips and tricks that will help the audience picking the right items when it comes to create a cosplay, a costume or a makeup transformation.

In the Makeup session it will be explained how to contour and how to create illusions on the face using shadows and highlights + the products that everyone should have!

In the wigs section Manuel D’Andrea explains the differences between synthetic and human hair wigs and between classical and lace front wigs + how to apply them (products to use and how to use them).
