Just like in the movies how they say “Some Material May Be Inappropriate For Children Under 13,” if you’re scared of blood and gore, this makeup and special FX is so realistic, it’ll leave you huddled on your couch. Academy Award winning makeup and special FX artist Christien Tinsley has left the audience and media speechless once again with his hair-raising, spine-tingling work on American Horror Story, Season 1.
Lori Melton of the Examiner discussed with Christien just how he created these astonishly horrific looks. Christien recounted “making Halloween masks and creating sculptures” as a kid and “watching films featuring the work of Dick Smith, Stan Winston, Rob Bottin, Steve Johnson and Rick Baker.” These great artists inspired him to become the renowned artist he is today, working with Ryan Murphy on shows such as Nip/Tuck, Glee, and now AHS. Christien and his amazing crew work very well with Ryan because he “knows what he wants and for a makeup artist that can be a huge blessing.” Infantata was Christien’s favorite creature to design and with this as a teaser, we can’t even imagine what he’ll create in Season 2.
