Night­club ban over ‘dan­ger­ous’ spooky make up

Macclesfield Express - - HANDS OFF OUR HOSPITAL -

A HAL­LOWEEN rev­eller was banned from get­ting into a night­club - be­cause of his gory make-up.

Andy Stott, 47, spent al­most an hour cre­at­ing a bloody wound us­ing lay­ers of la­tex, fake blood and a piece of flex­i­ble plas­tic.

But Andy was shocked when he ar­rived at Fever & Bou­tique on Pick­ford Street on Satur­day night only to be re­fused en­try be­cause his bloody ‘wound’ was ‘too dan­ger­ous’.

Andy, who lives in Tyther­ing­ton and works at As­traZeneca, said he hadn’t ex­pected his make-up job to be so ef­fec­tive.

He said: “It was just a piece of plas­tic which was quite flex­i­ble but looks real.

“I built up the lay­ers of la­tex, used foun­da­tion then blood gel over the top.

“This was my first at­tempt at do­ing it and just watched a cou­ple of You Tube videos first.

“The Fever bouncer just wouldn’t let us in be­cause of the make up.

“They thought it was ac­tu­ally in my skin. It was quite funny, not a prob­lem, and we went on to have an awe­some night.”

Matthew Tay­lor, gen­eral man­ager at Fever, said: “Ul­ti­mately it was a health and safety is­sue.

“He had a thick piece of sharp plas­tic which was too dan­ger­ous.”
