obese makeups: Pretty Ugly People

Pretty Ugly People

This was billed as ‘a wickedly comedic look at body image, self-loathing and sex within a group of estranged friends in their mid-30s’. Lucy (Missi Pyle) has been obese for her entire life and has always longed to be a thin so she could finally lose her virginity.

Successful gastric by-pass surgery has now left her svelte and beautiful. However, she convinces her friends that she’s still obese, on the verge of dying, and that her last wish is for them to reunite for a retreat in Montana. Everyone begrudgingly agrees to come and upon arrival, they discover they’ve been had.

The fat Lucy is only seen in one flashback scene during the title sequence.

Paula Jane Hamilton was the makeup department head but if any one can clarify who did Missi Pyle’s prosthetic makeup please email themakeupgallery.
