Roy-Wooley

Roy Wooley Head Makeup Artist, Netherworld Haunted House

Roy Wooley began his career as a special make-up effects artist and fabricator in 1997 after moving from his small hometown in Alabama to Atlanta, Georgia. His first opportunity to hone his skills was working for Netherworld Haunted House, a nationally renowned Halloween attraction that is sponsored in part by AMC’s “The Walking Dead.” During Roy’s second year at Netherworld, he headed up the make-up department and began building original masks, props and costumes. In 2000 he started working on local independent films, which eventually led to work in major motion pictures like “Halloween II.” Roy is probably best known for competing on Syfy’s hit reality show “Face Off,” in which special effects make-up artists compete to create the best sci-fi- and horror-inspired looks and prostheses. In season three, Roy made it to the top four contestants and was given the title, “The King of Fabrication.”  He returned for season five, “Rookies vs. Vets,” where he made it in the top three. Currently, Roy stays busy traveling cross-country conducting workshops covering topics from make-up to fabrication and working on productions such as “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay,” “Constantine,” “Captain America: Civil War” and “Sleepy Hollow.” For more information, connect with Roy on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
