Rebecca Marks, Swindon College HND Media Make-Up student, competed in the World Skills Media Make-Up final as one of the top ten competitors in the region.
Held at the NEC, Birmingham, The South West Skills Awards recognise and celebrate the achievements of apprentices, learners and employers who have excelled in the region.
Rebecca had been planning the look for the last two months to fit the theme of the competition ‘The Golden Age of Hollywood’.
The costume was made from film negatives, beading and black spray paint. It took four hours on the day of the competition to apply the body paint, make-up, bald cap and the prosthetics to her model.
College Media Make-Up Lecturer Ellie Baskerville said: “Rebecca’s work was amazing and she was given some fantastic feedback. It was a stiff competition and it was hard to see who was going to win. She really held her own.”
