The Grant County Public Library recently provided a helping hand to those who wanted to add to their costume and make themselves look more grotesque for Halloween.

Jessica Napier organized Friday Blood Fest on Oct. 24 at the Grant County Public Library after attending a library event in June where Amanda Boston, a Northern Kentucky University student who does makeup for the U.S.S. Nightmare haunted boat, taught attendees about theatrical makeup.

“I was enthralled with it,” Napier said. “I loved it. We learned how to do the gore, getting your face burnt off or getting a rash on your arm.”

“I’m a huge Halloween fan,” she said. “Just to do all that makeup for Halloween and make it look realistic is fun and pretty interesting. If you learn how to do it pretty well, you can make it look like it’s out of the movies. It’s more realistic than a mask.”
