Lexi Gilbert (Guest Judge)
Lexi is a aspiring makeup FX and costume artist situated in the South West of the UK. I have a passion for special effects makeup and art finishing and I’m always teaching myself and learning new things every which way I can.
I have always been addicted to the creative media industry, there’s something awe-inspiring about how they not only think of great ideas, but breathe tangible, gooey, shiny life into them. As a kid, you believe its real and that magic and fantasy really exist, and when I got older and realise I could create that magic, I have been learning and creating feverishly ever since.
Currently I am a costume and makeup FX freelancer working both for private clients as well as global entertainment company Scarlett Entertainment.
I regularly volunteer at conventions such as London IMATS where I worked & modelled for Steve Johnson and Tate Steinsiek of ‘Face Off’ fame, The Prosthetics Event, and Comic Cons where I give industry advice to huge audiences on-stage and as well as judge the costume competitions.
I can’t believe what a wild ride it has been already, and its only been less than 4 years so far. I can’t wait to see where the future takes me!
Lexi will be appearing as a Guest Judge for our Cosplay Competition at Animangapop 2018!
