Bruce Houston


A self-taught sculptor, mold maker, and fabricator, Bruce Houston has been creating prosthetic makeup appliances, creatures, props, and costume elements for approximately 17 years. He has worked for local makeup FX shops along with some independent projects since 1996. Recent credits include Battlestar Galactica, Reaper, and Tron Legacy.

Bruce began making prosthetics and costumes for science fiction fan conventions, giving him a ready market for his creations. His early portfolio earned him a spot working on series like The X-Files and The Outer Limits under Toby Lindala and Tibor Farkas, respectively.

With experience training many novice makeup artists, Bruce looks forward to teaching VFS Makeup Design students about new silicone prosthetic techniques.
