wig & makeup disguises: Bandits


OH, I do like a good caper: this was Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid with a dash of F/X and great fun.

When Kate Wheeler (Cate Blanchett), a bored and somewhat loopy housewife with a failing marriage, decides to run away, she literally bumps into one of the Sleepover Bandits. Kidnapped, she soon falls for one of the bandits and quickly becomes one of the gang. But complications ensue when she also beds the second bandit.

Unable to choose between them she drowns her sorrows in a bar before before turning herself in to the police for the reward. But, of course, all is not as it seems.

The makeup

Morag Ross was Cate’s makeup artist and Emanuel (Manny) Millar was responsible for her hair: Deborah Larsen was the makeup department head.
