Two Person Camel Costume

I am looking for a two person camel outfit. Does anyone have any contacts who could loan / hire /sell in November for a week?
I am located in Hamilton, South Lanarkshire and people can contact me via Facebook messenger or my gumtree wanted advert.

Dates required as soon as possible for rehearsal but Panto is 26th to 30th November, so would perhaps need a bit beforehand for trial and rehearsal.

The Mount Nursing Home




December 2019

Footman's Costumes and Scenery

My name is Julie Willmouth and I am a Team Leader / Carer at The Mount Nursing Home in Shrewsbury.

I am hoping to put on a panto for our residents this December in the home, they themselves will be involved and also staff members so I’m writing to ask if it would be possible for you to donate or lend the home some costumes and scenery for us to accomplish this for the residents of our home.

The panto we plan to do is Cinderella so anything you could do would be greatly appreciated.

If you need any further information or can help us out please contact me.

Make-Up Artist

I have recently became a fully qualified Make-Up Artist after studying Level 3 Make-Up Artistry at Worcester College of Technology and the areas I covered are; Theatrical, Fashion, Media, Casualty, Face Paining, Body Painting, Bridal, Day, Evening and Special Occasion. I am currently volunteering to do any Make-Up that Drama Groups may need for performances, shows or anything else! I am available to either do one offs or I can commit to groups to do regular Make-Up including at rehearsals and I am free most evenings to do this.
I am looking to build up my experience so all of the Make-Up I do wont be at any cost, as it will be a great help for me too!
If you know of anyone who may be interested please get in contact through this email address )
Thank you very much

Voluntary Work Wanted

Jan 2014 onwards

I am writing to you to enquire whether there is any possibility of obtaining some voluntary work experience working alongside the makeup artists within your theatres. I am 18 years old and currently a student at City College in Norwich, having completed an extra year taking some additional GCSE's. I am now on the Hair and Media Make-Up level 2 Diploma course, following which I intend to apply to the London College of Fashion to study for a BA (Hons) in Hair, Make-up & Prosthetics for Performance.

Above you will see some samples of recent pieces of my work which I have achieved single handed through hours of research and practice, all of which was self taught. I have had many compliments on my work including a retweet on one of my photos on twitter from a walking dead fan page. I have also been asked by many people to do their makeup for fancy dress parties and events.
I live locally, and would really like to broaden my knowledge by shadowing someone already working in the industry ( I am happy to do this on an unpaid basis).
I would welcome the opportunity to show you some pieces of my work and to discuss any opportunities you may be able to offer me.
I look forward to hearing from you.

We have recently started promoting and selling make up made by a company called Younique which is extremely good quality and some of it's products we thought make up artists might be interested in.

A lot of the make up is water proof and hard wearing which would be good with the heat from the theatre lights and are perfect for covering marks, for example if you need a tattoo covered.
