For the Love of the Force – Manchester 4th, 5th and 6th November

Wow, what an event this was. Where in the UK can you get to see a full size X-wing, AT-ST walker, Jabba’s Palace, Cantina Bar and Giant Scout trooper helmet. This event had everything. There were artists in residence painting over the three days, the Manchester Philharmonic Orchestra playing the themes from Star Wars, costumers dressed as a wide variety of characters from the film, Celebrities signing, Star Wars themed food and drink plus a whole hall of traders selling anything Star Wars related.

Our favourite moment had to be the live make-up application from Shaune Harrison. He was applying the Bib Fortuna make-up to Alan Ruscoe (Original make-up artist and original actor from the Prequel films). It was great to see it all come together. We had researched, patterned and made the costume to dress Alan, using the little amount of reference material available. Seeing Alan in full make-up and costume and then having our photo taken with him was the icing on the cake, definitely a photo for the wall.

We would like to thank Carl Whitely for inviting us along to exhibit some our collection. Well done on a fantastic event, we look forward to the next one.
