This year marks the 30th anniversary of Hellraiser.
Held at the Pasadena Convention Center over the weekend, this year’s Monsterpalooza convention truly had such sights to show everyone in attendance. Celebrity guests such as Robert Englund, Kane Hodder and Cassandra “Elvira” Peterson were on hand to meet fans, and all sorts of special events were going on all weekend. One of the coolest of those events? A makeup demonstration that celebrated the 30th anniversary of Clive Barker’s Hellraiser. For the event, Barker himself co-designed a brand new look for Pinhead that was applied during the live demo!
Barker designed the new look with fellow artists Cris Alex and Stephen Imhoff Jr., and it was applied to a model this past Sunday at the PPI Premier Products and Skin Illustrator booth. For those who weren’t able to attend Monsterpalooza, or just plain got caught up doing other things at the event, images and even a time lapse video were just uploaded to Barker’s Facebook.
Don’t expect to ever see this redesigned makeup on screen, but it’s a cool treat for Hellraiser fans nonetheless. Nice to see that 30 years later, Barker’s passion for Pinhead is as strong as ever.
