Beauty can often emerge from the ugliest of things and situations. Frankenstein’s monster is certainly not in possession of glamour poster looks, but the idea of him being given a make-over in the name of charity seems like a lovely idea. As part of the Monster Charity Project 2017, ol’ bolt-neck is being customised by 25 of the UK’s top prop-making, sculpting and VFX make-up artists, each having been given a bust with which to work their magic. The end results are set to be auctioned off at the end of October, with 100% of the proceeds being donated to Make-A-Wish UK, a charity that grants wishes to seriously ill children.
The completed busts will start to be revealed on social media from May and will also appear at a number of conventions such as Horror Con UK and Creaturegeddon, so that the public can see them in a non-digital form. Last year’s project raised £28,000 by creating modified Star Wars helmets, so fingers crossed that this year’s can do even better.
