I am hooked. Naked Vegas is on my “must record” list! As a long-time fan of Face Off I as tickled to see the start of Naked Vegas. Well, not at first – I actually didn’t know what to think when I saw the name of the show on SyFy Channel. Huh? Are we going to be seeing orgies or something? LOL!

 Instead, it is Red, Heather, and Weiser from the company Naked Vegas in Las Vegas, NV. The art of these incredible artists will, literally, blow you over. These people turn human canvases into amazing works of art. Everything from Med Students to the Playmate of the Year Claire Sinclair (now THAT is a real woman, curves and all!) become creatures of stupendous beauty. Yes, these are naked humans. So what? The ‘nasty bits’ are covered, whether with tape over nipples or teeny tiny bikinis over ‘boy parts’ within a few moments, you don’t even see the “body.” Instead, you see the stunning work which went into the actual art. And the models themselves are amazing…. Standing there for hours on end, they become a canvas for amazing works of art that may stand out, or may fade into the background in astounding ways.

I first noticed body painting during the first season of Face Off, another SyFy channel extravaganza. Coming into it late (my television watching tends to depend on shows that I cared enough to record on my DVR) I was blown away at the amazing abilities of the artists who specialize in the art of Movie Magic. Staring three of the greats of movie makeup, McKenzie Westmore, Ve Niell, Glenn Hetrick, groups of contests vie for the title of Face Off Champion. Normally, I hate this type of show, but Face Off blew me away, and keeps me panting for more!

Rayce Bird’s take on Tim Burton. It was one of my favorite makeups ever shown on Face Off. The cellist who keeps her love alive as she plays . . . touching, gorgeous, and amazing!

Tonight, I also got the great pleasure of watching Face Off: Naked And Painted. All I can say is, WOW! I may not have known all that much about body painting before that first episode of body painting, but now? I am totally, totally hooked!

If you get the chance, and you love art, you have to check out these two series. I will always be glad I did!
