The unattractive Elspeth (Miranda Richardson) becomes a beautiful queen but it is not enough and so the familiar story gets underway. But all her schemes come to nough (as this must) and she ends up as an even more unattractive crone (and then the gnomes get her): Karin Konoval plays Elspeth as a crone.
Bill Terezakis was the makeup effects designer with Rachel Griffin, Bruce Houston and Brad Proctor as the makeup effects applicators. Norma Hill-Patton was the makeup designer with Gitte Axen as the makeup artist.
Rachel Griffin has a couple of images of the crone makeup in progress on her official site.
