Thanks for replying!
No, I don't mean normal make-up, I mean's the Beast's full face getup. I know it's more traditional for the Beast to wear some sort of mask, but my production could not have afforded a very good one.
The way we're doing the play, Belle will sing Home, stand up, leave me, and I can start taking off a few things, then she will come back, I'll say my last line as a Beast, and the stage will turn black, and I will change. At that point, I'll probably take off my Beast gloves and shoes, put on my human shoes and wash off my make-up.
Today is our first dress rehearsal so I'll try to work out the kinks, but I really don't know if I will have the time to do all that within the 30 second Transformation music.
At this point, I'm liking the homemade idea. I tried it out already, and it came off well on the places I had spread it thickly- thinly, not so much, but the make-up is supposed to be pretty thick anyway. Today, I'm going to Wal-Mart to check out some traditional make-up, so time will tell!
