Have you seen the latest trailer for Conan the Barbarian coming out this summer? Not only did we get to see Conan in some epic action sequences, but also got one of our first looks at Rose McGowan, who is playing the evil witch Marique.
While Marique may have some seriously cool witchy powers, her makeup, hair, and clothing required feats of movie magic that aren't nearly as fun. According to Ms. McGowan:
"Her high forehead, twisted hair, and all the rest 'required six hours of makeup each day starting at 2:30 in the morning.' In the press notes for the movie, Rose says the all-leather skin-tight costumes were as difficult as the make-up. 'The costumes were feats of engineering, and it took two people to get me in and out of almost every one of them,' she said. 'All of them except for one I could not sit in, so at lunch I would just kind of stand in my trailer because I didn’t want to hurt them. They were all leather and had so many different pieces.'
That sounds painful! What do you think? Do you think Rose McGowan looks the part of the evil witch? Are you excited for the movie?
