Joseph Merrick Prosthetic Makeup

Created for the second series of the TV show RIPPER STREET, this makeup was worn by Joseph Drake and comprised of a silicone cowl which was re-used for each shooting day, a new pre-painted cap plastic encapsulated face piece each day, knotted hair pieces and upper & lower dentures incorporating a hook to lift the upper lip (courtesy of Fangs FX). Joseph also wore a slip on prosthetic deformed hand and padded undersuit to distort his body shape.
