insane championship wrestling

31 Mar

On Sunday night, Angie and I had our first shot as official makeup artistes for Glasgow’s Insane Championship Wrestling. It took place in the ABC…

ICW

… and the show was sold out.

We didn’t end up doing that much makeup to be honest (hopefully for future shows, once people realise that’s what we’re there to do, we will be put to work a bit more), and as you well know, flogstars…  the devil makes work for idle hands.

Which means we had plenty of time to gawp at lots of fit, oiled-up bodies and take billions of selfies.

We arrived around 4pm and had a bit of time to kill while everything was set up.  So we sniffed around.  Access All Areas means precisely that.

the only thing stopping me from trying the belt on was the fear that I would be thrown in the ring if I did

We saw lots of stretching, massaging, greasing-up and rehearsing…

There were lots of opportunities to meet-and-greet…

… and even more time for crazy japes.

As the venue filled up, it was time for the performers to get in the zone.  This involves a lot of pacing, pumping up of muscles by dropping suddenly to the ground and doing really fast push-ups, and muttering while mentally rehearsing signature moves.  Last-minute application of extra oil is optional.

… And then, it’s SHOWTIME!

It’s not pretty, but it is spectacular.  Already counting the seconds til the next one at the end of April.  Giddy up!

Time for some AC/DC, don’t you think?
