Let Sophia Helmboldt on the makeup team

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!


I (Sophia Helmboldt) have started this position to attempt to come back to Haunt 2019 as a makeup artist. I have had over 7 years of experience including working on film sets and currently in cosmetology school. And yes I was a makeup artist at Haunt and Winterfest 2018. 

I was told by the head of makeup that she would not be hiring anyone under 18 this year but that I was an exception due to (at the time) currently being on the team. 

On 6/24 (after kick off, after I filled out reapplying paperwork, after I was told I could come back, after I talked to all of the people who just told me no) I was told I could not return due to the age being changed. I tried to working things out with the head of makeup and even went to the head of costuming. But was still told “no” and as to no explanation why, other than not bing 18. (I turn 18 11/22/19). 

I truly love the people and work I get to do at Haunt. And I am truly heartbroken with the news I received. It would mean so much to be able to come back this year. 

Thank you to everyone who’s supported me through this.
