Raquel Rosen is an SFX makeup and interdisciplinary artist who is a recent graduate from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She currently works as a Production Artist on the RealDoll and RealCock2 products at Abyss Creations LLC.
Raquel was intrigued at an early age by gory SFX and is following her passions to pursue a career in this exciting field. Her creative talents and production skills have been enhanced in New York City over the last two summers at the Make-Up Designory. Here, Raquel focused on both beauty and SFX make-up for fashion, television, theatre, and film. Raquel’s talents were displayed at the 2019 RAW Natural Born Artists showcase in Chicago, where she presented three models ranging from beauty makeup to full-on monster madness. She also recently interned for Marvel Television in LA where she learned all about the production industry, gaining more insight into the necessary, creative foundations that lie behind television and movie magic.
Raquel enjoys collaborating with fashion designers and photographers on photoshoots where she creates looks and applies everything from natural beauty to editorial looks. In addition to her outside SFX practice, Raquel’s studio work includes sculptures, silicone castings, ceramics, and airbrushed paintings. Some of her works are influenced by her interests in abstracted and intangible concepts that the quantum realm awaits for us to solve, as well as making sense of these phenomenons by manipulating the body to project larger-than-life, cosmic anomalies on a more personal, tangible scale.
