Make-up artists bring ‘zombie’ walkers to life

Flesh-eating zombies made-up by art and design students from Birmingham Metropolitan College took part in a charity walk through the city.

The students transformed the appearances of 300 people that went on Zombie Walk Birmingham 2014, raising £3,500 for Birmingham Children’s Hospital.

Level three art and design student Viktoria Stanislavova said: “I felt so proud of all the work we did. Everyone gave us lots of positive feedback.

“Hopefully we’ll get the chance to support the event again next year.

“Now that we’ve had the practice, we’ll do an even better job and can offer a more specialised zombie make-up service to the people that come to us.”

Art and design lecturer Emma Buet said: “The students proved to be incredibly skilled at giving each zombie their own identity, which is something all professional artists need to be experts at.”
