Alias: blonde disguises (season 1)

What can you say about Alias, there were just so many reasons to watch it: it was amazing; witty; dark; had a fascinating Rambaldi backplot; had Jennifer Garner; and brilliant makeup artists. The awards it collected (or is it garnered) were well deserved.

The makeup

Angela Nogaro, makeup department head worked closely with hairstylist Michael Reitz to create Sydney’s many looks:

Part of the whole concept behind her is not character disguises where she’s got a big nose or fake teeth – it’s character disguises in high fashion mode. Just different versions of a beautiful Jennifer.

The makeup and hair credits listed at IMDb include: Michael Reitz, department head hair stylist & wig designer; Katherine Rees, key hair stylist; James MacKinnon, makeup department head; Angela Nogaro, makeup department head; Diana Brown, key makeup artist; Rela Martine, key makeup artistl; Gil Mosko, special makeup effects artist; Margie Latinopoulos, special makeup effects artist.

It’s just a shame she spent so much time in either in dimly lit nightclubs and other darkened rooms or else running or fighting.
