No, you’re not in the Upside Down… But a terrifying part of it is coming to London! Rick Prince and Rashaad Santiago from SYFY’s Face OFF have created the first of its kind Demogorgan suit. It is fully animatronic and worn by an actor: you have never seen anything like it! Meet the creators and see this amazing creation in action.
Rick Prince: Rick began his career at a local puppet shop where he worked for over 10 years creating characters for Sesame Street and for theme parks such as Disney, Busch Gardens, and Dollywood. Seeking to further his special effects makeup skills, Rick started his own company, Malice in Mind FX Laboratory, located in Nashville, TN. His company creates live interactive art such as the Prowl mobile suit for Transformers Universe, full zombie makeups for the Nashville Zombie Walk, wireless DMX controlled stage tornadoes for Lil Twist, as well as characters and live show set ups for conventions including Comic Con-New York.
Rashaad Santiago: Kind-hearted, self-motivated and driven, Rashaad Santiago is confident his creativity will make him a winner. With his father’s support as inspiration, Rashaad combats any adversity through his artwork. As a self-taught makeup artist, he has gained expertise in sculpting, molding and application. He’s inspired by Stan Winston because of his work on Jurrassic Park and Predator. He feels that he works most efficiently in a relaxed environment, and he enjoys doing celebrity impressions during free-time to lighten the mood. He plans to open his own effects shop where he can create and teach the art of makeup.
