My Bodypainting partner Wolf's Bodymagic (2nd Place Twice at The World Bodypainting Festival) worked for/and with German TV Station SWR on a beautiful Steampunk Bodypainting special seen here. (Video also used with EXPRESS permission from SWR). Combining the elements of a popular and well loved Sci Fi Genre with the beauty of bodypainting in a never before seen piece. The colours used were water based high quality bodypaint applied directly to naked skin. These wash off in the shower. Wolf's specialty is the robotic form and it's extremely well executed here with a high attention to detail.
It was a fun thing and the biggest entourage ever on the road for Wolf´s BodyMagic. One Painter (Wolf Reicherter), one Assistant, one Model (Naraku, one of the best LARPers in the world!), one MakeUp Artist (Nadine Klump), two Photografers (Arpad Ikuma and Ondro), one additional model (Andrea Heuser), two producers, a two man camera team and a janitor(!)
Wolf's Bodymagic also made the Steampunk Props, did the conceptualisation as well as the body paint here. The work is a hybrid UV and daylight piece, so at certain intervals you can see blue glowing LED style awesomeness in the centre of the paint. Incredible stuff!
