Topeka (KSNT) – The first woman to win SyFy Channel’s Faceoff Competition, Nicole Chilelli, will be attending TOPCON Geek Expo 2015, September 18-20, in Topeka. The Season 3 winner will be performing her extreme special effects make-up magic at the event.
The Gypsy, Creator and Executive Director of TOPCON admitted he’s a fan. “I am a huge fan of FaceOff and Nicole, and I know that she has quite a following in this area. We have a very large population of Cosplayers and special effects fans, artists and practitioners in this region. With Nicole’s appearance, they will be able to learn from and meet one of the world’s best!”
Syfy Channel’s Faceoff is a competition/elimination series testing the skills of selected artists from around the world. Challenges incorporate effects make-up, and include a wide range of artistic skill sets.
Nicole is the owner of Vicious Vanity FX in Roseville, California. She garners her inspirations from nature and its smallest details like the spines on the back of a leaf or similar aspects that people may take for granted.
Nicole specializes in Special FX Makeup – sculpting, character and creature design, custom prosthetics, application and paint, airbrushing, wounds or trauma, sci-fi and Fantasy creatures, old age, horror and gore, blood FX, molding and life cast. Straight Makeup – beauty, high fashion, run way.
After Faceoff, Nicole continued to work hard at her craft and won two more awards, Raw Artist of the Year at the 2012 RAWards, and the Vanguard Award from the California Film Foundation 2013.
The Marvelous Mistress of Makeup will be available at her show booth all weekend long during TOPCON Geek Expo 2015. In addition, a select few will have an opportunity to participate in Nicole’s Special Workshop Seminar, a one time only event during TOPCON. Seating will be limited to only 150 people for the workshop. The Seminar is only $20.00 and is open only to registered guests of TOPCON Geek Expo 2015. A portion of all registration fees will go to help support Harvesters.
“TopCon believes in giving back” The Gypsy explains. “By limiting Nicole’s workshop to only pre-registered guests, we were able to set up with everyeventgives.com, which is an event ticket processing website. Each pre-registration with Nicole Chilelli’s workshop included, allows us to give a portion of the registration fee to the Topeka Harvesters – Community Food Network, which helps to feed hungry people in need.”
September 18, 19 and 20 at the Ramada Topeka Downtown meeting and greeting her fans and doing makeup demonstrations. Registration for Nicole Chilelli’s workshop seminar begins June 1, 2015 and ends September 1, 2015 or when all 150 seats have been reserved.
