Recreating the Unique Motley Crue Looks – Makeup, Costumes
October 4, 2018
The production team brought in Tod Waters of Junkr Designs, who created many of Motley Crue’s iconic costumes. The idea was to recreate the look that made MC the fashion icons of the big hair bands.
“I received a call from Steve Hott, from Mötley Nüe, to recreate some of the signature looks that were worn by Mötley Crüe. As the designer for the band from 2006 until the very last show, it was a must that I recreated the looks with the exact details. The real challenge was to recreate the iconic ‘Shout At The Devil’ costumes circa 1983. I went to extremes to duplicate these costumes and infuse them with all the rock and roll sleaze and swagger I could muster. Mötley Nüe brings all these designs to life as well as Mötley Crüe’s original sound.” – Tod Waters, designer Junker Designs.
In addition to the costumes, the team brought on MAC makeup artist, Cristina Padilla. All cosmetics used to date, are MAC products. Cristina spent hours reviewing the band’s original photos and videos before planning out each member’s precise look.
