Otto educates the audience at IMATS

The International Make-Up Artist Trade Show (IMATS) was held at Olympia at the end of June. Amongst the many classes and demonstrations on the event's schedule was an educator's class by Kate Walshe and Karen Spencer of Millennium FX , called 'Secrets of Creature Suits'. This gave an insight into how creature suits are designed and constructed, and how the specialist performers who wear them go about their physically demanding work.

One of the subjects of this class was our friendly, resident Organutan Otto, who was a subject of intrigue for the large audience! He was very relaxed in the limelight whilst being talked about as the picture below left shows, and then couldn't resist an energetic frolick through the crowd!
