RedRum, The Lon Chaney of Burlesque will talk about and demonstrate quick and creative uses of prosthetic makeup appliances and other means of achieving dimension with basic makeup tools. Emphasis will be on creature and character makeup. No need to bring materials, just come equipped with questions and ideas.

Presented with the New York School of Burlesque


Hailed as the ‘Queen of Halloween’ and the ‘Lon Chaney of Burlesque’ Red Rum is a multidisciplinary artist whose formal background is in painting and video art. Burlesque brought together the perfect combination of her love for makeup, prop building and horror film with the catharsis of a live audience. Drawing from a variety of influences she brings to the stage a unique combination of burlesque and performance art, choosing narratives that combine elements of sex, death and humor – the great social levelers. Known for her unusual costumes and skilled improvisation she strives to give audiences something they have never seen before and may never see again.
