Press Release (ePRNews.com) - CALGARY, Alberta - Apr 20, 2018 - Local costume, makeup, and special FX store, Don’s Hobby Shop (https://www.donshobbyshop.ca), is excited to announce its partnership with Amanda Tozser of Amandamazing Art (http://amandamazingart.com) for the store’s newly formed ambassador program.
Tozser is a certified makeup artist specializing in theatrical makeup and gore FX makeup and caters to a wide range of clients from birthday parties to the Calgary Flames. As the first official Don’s Hobby Shop Ambassador, Tozser recognizes the importance of these kinds of partnerships, especially between local businesses and artists.
“I am thrilled to be a part of this program and think it’s a great way to give credit to and help aspiring, local artists – I know how hard it can be to start out in this industry,” said Tozser. “I am also so happy to be representing Don’s Hobby Shop and share the incredible service they have provided to the makeup and theatrical community.”
Scott Bennie, owner of Don’s Hobby Shop, hopes this program will add to the already strong relationship the store has built with local makeup artists across all artistic industries.
“There are so many talented makeup artists in this area so I’m happy to be able to help shine a spotlight on them and their work with this program,” said Bennie. “Amanda is such a skilled artist so I couldn’t pick a better ambassador to help launch the program.”
The Don’s Hobby Shop Ambassadors will be showcasing the store’s top quality makeup and supplies. The program will allow ambassadors to: host workshops, attend events on behalf of Don’s Hobby Shop, share their work with the store’s customers, and network with other top creative artists.
The first event Tozser will be attending as an ambassador of Don’s Hobby Shop is the Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo, where she and the Don’s Hobby Shop makeup team will be hosting a panel on effective cosplay makeup. On Saturday, April 28 at 2 pm, Amanda and Charlie will showcase makeup application, prosthetic work, and gore FX, and answer any questions attendees have.
