Another plaster photo, different person.

I’d also like to draw your attention to the Women of Color and Beauty Carnival. There’s lots of interesting essays discussing cultural values of beauty and attractiveness.

    The “flesh coloured” plasters thing is particularly annoying in a theare context. They’re used to stick on radio mics, but the effect on darker actors is to make the microphone more noticable, when they’re supposed to be disguising it. Transparent plasters are no use for this, because they still have the white cotton pad on them and sellotape doesn’t work either. It isn’t strong enough to hold the wire.

    If you ever do find a company making “skin tone” plasters for skin which is black or asian, please advertise the hell out of it here. Stage managers up and down the country will thank you.
