Te Auaha make-up artistry team create nymph and troll

By Nick Hendricks

Kino Longdin helps with Devon Hancock’s transformation for CubaDupa today.

Crowds entering Te Auaha’s campus today were greeted by a makeup and film prosthetic display.

Dany Pike, Jessica Routledge, Amanda Kisona, Kino Longdin and Sarah Elford worked as a team to transform Luke Burke and  Devon Hancock into a troll and a wood nymph.

Both models are training to be actors and said time in the chair was a good experience.

Luke doesn’t often wear makeup, but was excited to get the star treatment he said.

The team has been working since 10am this morning to apply layers of makeup and prosthesis ordered from overseas to get the effect just right.

Dany Pike, one of the tutors for Te Auaha’s make-up artistry course, has been in the industry for 25 years.

She moved here from Europe and took up teaching. The hours were better and she got paid holidays, she says.

Dany loves teaching and while she misses movies sometimes, she gets “the best of both worlds” in teaching creative courses.
