Hi everyone! My name’s Karlee Morse and I’m an award-winning, special effects (FX!) make-up artist with a flair for prosthetic design and costuming and pushing the limits to achieve fantasy-esque creatures and looks. I’ve done a lot of gory projects and recently designed the prosthetics for the film “Becky,” which is usually exciting to fans of gore. Other favorite spooky projects include assisting on the “What We Do in the Shadows” TV series and designing prosthetics on the “Baroness von Sketch Show.” I’ve also worked on music videos, video games, and theater and I’m a part-time professor teaching Advanced Special Effects Makeup, Prosthetics and Props.
I adore Halloween, as the spookiest season of all, with its costume and design, horror scenes and spooky artistry. And I can help people if they have make-up questions.
I am so excited about my latest project! I was recently invited to create [collectible-grade character busts for General Mills of their ever-nostalgic Monster Cereal characters that date back to the early 70’s – Count Chocula, Franken Berry and Boo Berry. Watch this awesome Behind-the-Scenes video of the process, in action.
General Mills is surprising three lucky fans that will be randomly selected to win these unique one-of-a-kind monsters busts this week. Enter here, should you be interested!
Happy Halloween Reddit!
Edit: I love what I do because every project/day is vastly different - including today!!! My first time using r/IAmA!!! I get to meet and work with amazing people, go to cool places, and creatively problem-solve to build various creatures, make-up fx, and props.
Thanks so much for all of the amazing questions on this r/IAmA session. I have so much fun doing what I do, and I think it’s very cool that you’re interested in my work!!
Please continue to share your questions. I’ll answer more if I can. Until next time -- Bye!
