BEAUTY AND EDITORIAL
Students from Levels 4, 5 and 6 from Solent University, competed
within this category and were asked to design a beauty look based
around this year’s theme.The winners of this category, Bethany Addington
& Misha James, produced a spectacular design based on a species of
jellyfish. The in-depth research put into their idea helped the girls form
a design that told a story through the hair, makeup and costume.
Beautiful handmade costumes and headdresses complimented
their beautiful work.

CHARACTER AND PROSTHETICS
Level five and six students took part in this category, they were
briefed to create an under the sea character using prosthetic makeup
techniques and were given four hours to complete their designs.
The winners from this category, Natalie Hodgkins and Ella Christenson,
produced an exciting design that highlighted the effects of pollution
on marine life. The pair worked cohesively together to create an
outstanding idea, showing they had paid great attention to detail
shown within the application.
The winner from the Graduate category this year was Amelia Kildear
who created a stunning prosthetic sea princess. Her concept was based
around the story of a beautiful princess who was offered up to
Poseidon to guarantee safe passage for her father’s men during battle.
Due to this the princess was dammed to live an eternity under water.
The princess fought for her freedom, stole Poseidon’s trident and
now roams the sea to seek revenge on her father
