The three remaining artists on “Face Off” have reached the finals and their biggest challenge yet for a chance to take home the $100,000 prize and a new car.
Rayce, RJ, and Ian got a surprise at the loft when they saw girlfriend and family members in a live video on the computer.
Once at the workroom the guys learn what they must do for the final spotlight challenge. The artists have three days to create makeup that will stand up to live action.
RJ took fantasy, Rayce took sci-fi, and Ian got horror as a theme to create three characters that will have to perform a dance routine before a live studio audience. Knowing that the guys will need a little help to create three characters in three days, host McKenzie Westmore brought back the eliminated artists. Each finalists chose three eliminated artists to help them bring their creatures to life.
On the second day of work, McKenzie brings in a little help in the form of a mentor for the artists…her Dad Michael Westmore who was responsible for many of the characters on “Star Trek”. After meeting with the artists, McKenzie and her Dad consult on the creations. Ian has a great concept. RJ has a great design but he is concerned about the numerous textures in his work. And for Rayce he is concerned about the two face character not becoming a muddy mess.
On application day the artists have four hours of dressing models in the workroom, but for last looks the artists are not backstage but in makeup trailers like those used in television and movies.
The final reveal stage performance has arrived and the nine creations must not only show off the artist’s creations but perform a choreographed dance. This time not just the judges have a say in the winner but the studio audience will get to vote for their favourites. The judges will take that vote into consideration when choosing the winner.
The moment of truth arrives when the creatures must dance to “Cinema” bywith Gary Go. The dance was a vigorous performance and some of the makeup suffered. Now the judges take their closer looks…
Glenn thought Ian had some great concepts and a makeup that they had not seen before. Patrick called unique and original.
For RJ, Ve called it interesting, unique, and fantastic. Patrick noted that he would always know RJ’s work because he had a style.
Glenn noted that while exceptional makeup work, Rayce did struggle with keeping the makeup from too much erosion during the night.
Ve said the artists did an exceptional job and made there’s very difficult. Creatively Ian was unique and brought something interesting and different every week. Ve said Rayce knocked it out of the park for her.
McKenzie revealed that the audience chose Rayce’s characters as their favourties.
Glenn Hetrick announced that the winner of season two of “Face Off” was Idaho tattoo artists Rayce. McKenzie presented Rayce with the keys to his new car. Rayce said it was all a dream and he was waiting for someone to poke him and wake him up; he added that he can’t go back to being a tattoo artist after this and he wants to go work on movies now.
