Something is Brewing Over at Coven FX – Women in Horror: Specializing in Makeup and Special Effects

In honor of Women in Horror Month, we are extremely excited to introduce a new all women based company called Coven FX! Such a wonderful group of ladies who are brewing up a storm and are a great addition to the horror community. Can talent like this be real or are they truly witches?

The Official Press Release:

“February 1, 2017- In conjunction with Women in Horror Month, a collective of women specializing in all aspects of makeup and special effects has announced that they will be opening up an FX shop this Summer. 3 Women, reminiscent of the Sanderson Sisters, each with varying backgrounds in makeup and special effects have decided to come together to form an FX company run by women, making FX products for women. Along with their original line of women’s silicone masks, Coven FX will also be offering services including but not limited to: mold making, casting, prosthetic and transfer making, prop making, foam fabrication, FX dentures, and life casting.

The Coven FX GoFundMe site is now live to help raise funds to open their shop this summer. Your donations will go toward all the necessities of opening any new business: Business License, Insurance, Website, Shop Deposit, Utilities, Materials, Supplies, Business Cards, Marketing, etc. Follow Coven FX on Facebook at www.facebook.com/covenfx and Instagram at @coven_fx to stay updated.

With every donation, you will receive a gift. Middle tiers include the choice of a Glossy or Metal Print from Coven FX’s first Mask shoot with award winning photographer Chad Michael Ward. With a $500 donation you have the chance to own an EXCLUSIVE “Lucretia” Witch Mask. And finally at the highest tiers, 2 lucky collectors will receive either a 1 of a kind Deluxe version of the “Lucretia” Mask or a 1 of a kind “Lucretia” Dressed Bust. The release of Coven FX’s fundraising campaign is perfectly timed with the Celebration of Women in Horror Month. And we would love nothing more than to see this group of talented women be successful in doing what they love. Support Women in Horror, Support Coven FX.”

I’ve gotten to know the founder of Coven FX, Haylee Detroit, and she is a talented lady with extreme love and passion for the horror genre. Stay tuned for my exclusive interview with her and check out what she had to say in the press release:

“Being surrounded by so many talented women in the FX Industry is what gave me the idea to open Coven FX. Realizing that I have so many talented friends who struggle to get FX work in a male dominated industry, I started talking to Cassandra Byers about the idea of opening up my own shop. With her Beauty Makeup and YouTube/Social Media Marketing background, adding Cass to the equation was a no brainer. But I knew we needed a strong sculptor. I watched an amazing mask created by Melissa Coulter go viral, and I knew she was our missing sister. With our varying backgrounds, along with the help of some other amazing women our combined talents give us the ability to take on any job that comes to us. We have become a Family, A Coven. And I am so excited to open Coven FX this Summer!” – Founder/Owner of Coven FX: Haylee Detroit”
