Since we explored The Ice Kingdom Liz Sharpe from LVS Make Up has designed and dazzled with the creatures creations. The Goblin Ball characters come alive and truly amaze with the hard work of Liz's team! We caught up with her and asked her a few questions on how she gets her inspiration for her work and what guests can expect on the night.
So what is LVS?
LVS has had some amazing projects including the recent photoshoot held at Rippon Lea. You may have seen the amazing work done with the fantasy and victorian inspired fantasy shoot. "We are the crew behind the scenes creating characters with the performers through Makeup and magic." Liz humbly explains but her work is more than just the crew. They help to bring life to the characters you will see on the evening.
What can guests expect at the Goblin Ball?
"More amazing characters makeups!!" The characters will be brought to life through special FX and make up magic. Liz's team specialises in the fantasy world and to bring her vision to life she takes cues from the story, the costume and the characters who inhabit the world. Her style is truly etherial and magical.
Tell us of your favorite inspiration!
From travelling to USA to film music videos and working on film Liz has a life filled with experiences to draw on. "Life's journey as a visual creative is enough to inspire me, it's loaded with everything I need."
If you could sum up your life in one word what would it be?
Liz keeps everything straight to the point. "Makeup" and to be honest with such an amazing back story, it's the perfect word.

Have you heard of the Goblin Ball? If so tell us what you know or your experiences
I first found out about the Goblin Ball through my customers who love the event and encouraged me to be a part of it. Its fantastic that you have such an event allowing people the opportunity to wear all their beautiful Marquis de Sade costumes.
So what is it that you do so well that makes people want to come back?
Marquis de Sade supports fun and fantasy and will love dressing ball goers in unique stylish costumes for your event.
What would be your inspiration?
"Fantasy is my reality" Marie Delon.
What drives me is giving people the opportunity to express their own individual identity and desires. Through my creations I am able to fulfill my customers fantasies which gives me immense pleasure.
Your male costumes are also amazing? Any last words?
Nothing is out of bounds. Freedom of expression bringing out the sensitive, the sensual and the seductive.
We venture into Scandalous territory with our next sponsor
Company Web Page
Scandalous Gems is an adventure into the realm of custom made jewellery, designs that are a little naughty but oh so nice.
Their Mission is to: “Create, Educate and Fight. Create beautifully honest pieces that reflect the wearers kinky side; Educate as to what safe sane and consensual kinky play really is; and Fight against any form of domestic violence in any culture.”
The vision of Scandalous Gems is to see a world at peace with itself, where all are safe, well, accepted and happy.
The Goblin Ball is a little removed from your daily reality! Where did you hear about The Goblin Ball?
Miss Honey was introduced to the Goblin Ball by some amazing Cosplay friends. She loves the idea of everyone dressing up and becoming their alter egos.
So you have decided to travel to the world of Terra Bayou! What can guests expect from you on the night, and should they be scared?
Miss Honey, Scandalous Gem's Head Designer and Owner will be there to partake in the hedonistic pleasures of Terra Bayou. You will find her willing to assist with the festivities and she will also have some extra little gifts to hand out at random ball guests.
Tell us of your favorite inspiration and what drives you to create amazing art!
What a loaded question? Inspiration is everywhere and in everything. The passion can be quite overwhelming. With notepad and pencil as constant companion those special moments where an idea leaps into your mind are never lost.
"As an Artist, it is our job to bring dreams to reality, make fiction into fact" Miss Honey
The current range of Scandalous Gems designed is due to the recent popularity of books/movies like "50 Shades of Grey".
It has become more acceptable within conventional society to dabble with the fetish lifestyle.
These luxurious little secret gems are for those in the know, those that wish to embrace their darker kinkier side.
If you had the chance to tell everyone about your company what would be your most alluring tidbit?
Alluring titbit... I put my finger to my lips. "Sssshhh Scandalous Gems is just that, "Scandalous" deliberately encouraging people to wear in public, what they only show in private. Basically what the movie "Kinky Boots" did for sexy foot wear; "Scandalous Gems" does for Jewellery.
We are so excited to have Scandalous Gems as a sponsor and if you are lucky enough to win one of the two Best Dressed packages you could take home an amazing custom design just for you!
