All About Metamorphosis:Costume&FX

Ying-Syuan Zeng (Syuan Zeng)

Born in Taipei Taiwan, Syuan had discovered her love in visual arts at an early age. Yet it takes her quite a long route from learning painting, graphic design, editing, making costumes then being able to realize it is building out her imagination that makes her so happy, and theater/film is the magic land that put everything together. So she took a turn and hopped onto the path of costume design for theater. Now she is exploring the new world in prosthetic, props, wig and makeup, with the goal and passion of combining all these elements together to bring her imagination into reality.
