There are dozens of students in our high school that have special talents, and most of us have no clue about what they are. Abby Walton is one of those students. Her talent involves creating her own clothes and doing FX (special effects) makeup. Here are a few questions to learn more about her talent:
Q: How long have you been making your own clothes?
A: I have been making my own clothing since I was 9 years old.
Q: Have you thought of taking your talent and making it a career?
A: I have thought of making a career out of making clothing and FX makeup, but unfortunately I have yet to be presented an opportunity to practice professionally.
Q: How long have you been doing FX makeup?
A: I started doing FX makeup almost two years ago.
Q: How did you learn to do this?
A: I learned through trial and error as well as a base line of knowledge from YouTube.
Q: Are most of the clothes you wear the ones you make?
A: Not usually, my style tends to not be appropriate for school dress codes (strapless or shorter than the allotted lengths). But if the outfits are school appropriate, then I will often wear them. I will wear the clothes I’ve made generally on the weekends or for special events.
Q: What exactly is FX makeup?
A: FX makeup is horror movie or sci-fi movie type of make up. It is basically the makeup people normally would never use, but it opens worlds of imagination and creates a genre of makeup where anything that you can think of can be put on a person’s face or even their bodies.
