"Arabella did a fantastic job for the "Basement Torture Killings", & Aborted- Expurgation Euphoria" music videos. She was very thorough with her make-up & special effects making sure everything was absolutely perfect before we shot. She showed great skill & innovation when confronted by anything that could have been a potential problem, & came very well prepared as to avoid disruptions. Arabella is very friendly & has a good sense of humour & is easy to direct. I would definitely employ her again & I would be intrigued to see what she can offer in other genres of make-up artistry. You can check out the Basement Torture Killings music video below, Arabella was responsible for ALL of the make-up, prosthetics & special effects applied to the actors & band members. https://metalinjection.net/video/aborted-expurgation-euphoria-video-uncensored", Phil Berridge, Director, Creative Junkie Media


"Hi Arabella. Just a line to say that the prosthetic finger I ordered from you arrived today and is absolutely perfect! Thanks for the attention to detail and professional service throughout. All the best Chris. Chris Stokes Magic".

"Thank you again. Got a lot of compliments. Took a while for people to recognise me and scared a lot of people". Gurkirat

"I still look back at the Halloween make-up you did for me", Ben the Cocktail Master.
