SU junior Kate Browse delves into the process of making medical prosthetics by creating a plaster mold of her face.

Kate Browse, a sculpture junior, dove headfirst into pursuing her goal of discovering the process of making human prosthetics by constructing a mold of her face.

To do this, she and two other assisting sculpture majors mixed a skin-safe alginate with water to make a plaster-like substance. Her assistants then painted this mixture over her face, neck and ears. 

As a self-described claustrophobic, Browse said she first felt intimidated that she would have to breathe through two small plastic straws placed in her nostrils while the plaster dried on her face.

Model Stacy Fernandez shares her journey of getting ready for the Rip the Runway fashion show on Friday.

“This is nothing like last year. It’s not hectic, there’s no yelling, it’s weirdly calm,” said one of the girls doing hair and makeup.

“Calm?” I think. Nothing about this is calm, at least not for me.

Backstage isn’t what I expected. It’s not actually behind the stage, rather there is a set of stairs that leads to a room directly underneath the stage. This is where the real show is.

Bandersnatch headliners talk influences, dream collaborations and returning to Upstate New York.

Tribe Society

The NewsHouse: You guys formed out of the band Gentlemen Hall. Is Tribe Society a reimagining of it, or are you focusing on more of a different style?

Brad: This is a big turning point for Gentlemen Hall. We used to have another singer, but he left, and then we moved to New York, and just kind of started over, started fresh. It’s a little different in sound because we’re always exploring and stuff, so it kind of became its own thing with the five of us instead of the six people in Gentlemen Hall.
