Make-Up Girls® Fashion Color and Design Book

Promoting hands-on art with the first ever beauty and fashion based educational art product

October 1, 2008 (Woodstock, NY) —Coloring books have long been a staple in the lives of little girls. Who doesn’t remember wanting the biggest box of crayons and most colors possible to color in books depicting princesses, fairies, cartoon, doll and other storybook characters? The standard coloring book model has barely changed throughout the years— with yellowish to white coloring pages featuring familiar faces/scenes to color and in some cases, offering other activities to keep the child busy.

Chicks Inc. has put a brand new spin on the traditional coloring book with the introduction of Make-Up Girls® Fashion Color and Design Book. This rather glamorous 9”x12” book features 18 beautiful models “Make-Up Girls” who can be interpreted and personalized in countless different ways. Make-Up Girls® Fashion Color and Design Book invites girls (5-12) to be make-up artists and fashion stylists for the models and the book’s art grade paper enables art media, glues and crafts of every type to be used. In fact, the first 6 pages of the Make-Up Girls® Fashion Color and Design Book are color illustrated with instructional tips and techniques. Perhaps most exciting though is that the book offers a level playing field so that anyone, regardless of artistic ability, can produce stunning results. Girls will experience a genuine sense of accomplishment with each model they color and style. It’s a great solo, group and mother-daughter activity. Makes for a wonderful art-themed party, too.

Laura Zimzores, the creator of Make-Up Girls® says that in the coming months, Chicks Inc. will offer downloadable clothes patterns to use with specialty papers and fabrics on their website, www.make-upgirls.com as well as Fashion Prints® which are textile printed patterns for ready-to-wear fashions. The website will also offer downloadable backdrops for the models featuring exotic “photo shoot locations” from around the world. Of course, girls can easily create their own custom backgrounds with stickers, colors and drawings (stars, moon, sun, butterflies, etc.) According to Ms. Zimzores, plans are also underway to hold contests for creativity and originality, along with other product incentives.

Make-Up Girls® Fashion Color and Design Books are not yet available in stores, but advance copies may be mail ordered from:

Chicks Inc., P.O. Box 949, Woodstock, NY 12498 for $7.99 plus $2.00 S/H. NY Residents add 8-1/4% sales tax. Please allow 2 weeks for delivery.
