He’s Back!

Thursday, November 3rd, 2016

Crypticon Seattle is delighted to welcome back Face-Off fan favorite Roy Wooley to the convention for 2017.

Stay tuned for info on what classes Roy will be offering!

Roy Wooley is a special effects makeup artist with more than 20 years of experience. He grew up in Alabama where his father was a coal miner and a preacher who hoped his son would choose a similarly stable profession. But after Roy snuck in to see “An American Werewolf in London,” he fell in love with special effects makeup and the creation of characters. Roy’s mother has always been one of his biggest supporters; she put up with monsters lurking around her house for many years. Since there weren’t any FX schools for Roy to attend, he relied on tutorial videos, books and his innate artistic talent to develop his craft.

When Roy moved to Georgia in 1998, he took a job at Netherworld Haunted House where he established and now runs the makeup department. He works year-round on feature films while doing creature fabrication for Netherworld, which has become one of the country’s leading haunted attractions. In August 2012, he began competing on SyFy’s special effects competition show “Face Off.” His creations quickly became fan favorites, and he even earned a permanent spot in the Star Wars universe when he co-created a creature for the Mos Eisley cantina during his first spotlight challenge.
