Star Trek makeups: Vixis

The Final Frontier: Vixis

A renegade Vulcan takes several ambassadors hostage on the planet Nimbus III and sparks an urgent mission for the Enterprise. But a Klingon captain sees an opportunity to make a name for himself.

Spice Williams, a body builder and stunt woman, certainly had the body to play the Klingon Vixis in Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, but the character had little to do.

The makeup

Brian Wade was prosthetic makeup designer (Klingon and Vulcan); Allan Apone was special makeup designer; Janice Alexander, Katalin Elek, Edouard F Henriques, Rolf John Keppler, Michael Mills, and Kenny Myers were special makeup artists on the movie.

I’m grateful to Spice Williams for informing me that the makeup artists who worked on Vixis were Jeff Dawn and Wes Dawn.
