UC ingot   Halloween is nearly here, and if any college knows how to get into the spirit, it's the University of Cincinnati's College-Conservatory of Music. After all, it wasn't long ago that CCM opened its Studio Series with "Carrie: The Musical," a rock 'n' roll adaptation of Stephen King's classic horror novel "Carrie," and performed the twisted fairy tale "Into the Woods." And here's further evidence that CCM is loaded with seasonal inspiration. Kelly Yurko, associate professor of make-up and wig design, guides you through a series of do-it-yourself monster makeovers to give your Halloween costume star quality. Graduates of CCM's rare MFA in Make-Up and Wig Construction and Design program have gone on to work with national touring shows, popular TV programs and independent and commercial film companies.

Watch Yurko in these videos and then try it yourself!
