So you want a 'Local' nose Eh?
What you will need - some theatrical stuff from from Charles H. Fox Ltd -
Wig lace 01 @ £17.00 per metre (order no 02429)
Spirit Gum P 100ml @ £7.20 (order no 06012)
Spirit Gum P remover 100ml @ £2.50 (order no 02041). For cleaning brushes and
fingers only. Do NOT use on face!
What to do - cut the wig lace into a strip about a centimetre wide and as
long as from your septum (the bit between your nostrils that Danella
Westbrook disintegrated) to your forhead between your eyebrows.
If you practice, you can cut the strip in the actual shape of your nose but
beware - it stretches as you pull the nose up.
Step one - cover your septum/outside of nostrils with a few thin layers of
glue. Tap until tacky.
Step two - glue the strip to that bit and allow to dry completely. Yes, you
will look silly with it hanging off your nose.
Step three - put a few thin layers of glue between your eyebrows. Tap until
Step four - frown and yank the strip upwards until you have a local nose.
Affix the strip to the glue. Hold it with your finger until it dries.
Step five - if you are REALLY picky - glue the rest of the strip to your
nose. Although the wig lace is flesh coloured, this will make it almost
Shaz and I did not use any makeup, as we had to wear the think all day in
boiling conditions. You CAN use a very thick foundation like the league do,
but you can see this under normal (non studio) conditions and it looks more
fake than without.
For full Tubbs and Ed effect:
Edward had a Bill Clinton Wig (also from Charles Fox)
Tubbs had a headscarf and Grey Crepe Hair (also from Charles Fox) curled and
pinned so that it showed under the scarf.
Both had eyebrows whitened. Tubb's chin dimple was done with makeup.
Credit for all this must go to Shaz - who did most of the legwork, and the
(anonymous) makeup artist from the tLoG who told us the secrets!
Unless you want to stay that way for life... instructions on how to "un"
localise your nose.
Peel off the wig lace very carefully. Do not use the glue remover as this
will really sting on your skin (we know... we tried it!)
You'll have tons of glue crust covering your nose, nostrils and eyebrows so
use a load of cleanser or makeup remover and just leave it on - let it soak
into the skin until the glue softens and comes off of it's own accord.
Hot tip: To make your nose even MORE local - tie your glasses tightly to the
head, this pushes back on the wig lace and gives you a few more millimetres
I would strongly recommend that if anyone wants to try it, they contact Shaz
or me by email!
