Makeup artist Danielle Holcomb analyzed the face of 12-year-old Serena Snaer on Thursday, trying to figure out how to make her uglier. Serena was being prepped for her role in a drama at Wilson Middle School, where she was to play “Flaky Snow,” the antithesis of Snow White. Holcomb had already added a witch-like prosthetic nose, reddish-brown face makeup and fake warts to Serena’s face, but was looking for a way to make the student look more startling, Holcomb said before spotting unused black and gray hair that she decided to use as a mustache, beard and hairy supplements to Serena’s fake warts.

After winning her first Emmy Award last year, Linda Rondinella-Osgood didn't think anything could be better — until she found out her daughter, Melinda Osgood, was nominated this year.

Deborah P. Nathan Glamour, glitz, rolled hair and shoulder pads all graced the stage of the Alex Theatre Saturday night. The Alex Film Society's screening of "Mildred Pierce" (Warner Bros., 1945) was rendered an even more stellar tribute to the motion picture icon by way of a Joan Crawford look-alike contest. A pre-show reception gave contestants the chance to strut their stuff before a distinguished panel of judges and guests. This classic film's story pivots on -- to put it politely -- a difficult mother-daughter relationship.

He asked the employee about the lipstick she was wearing and requested to “bite those lips,” Ryburn said.

BURBANK — Boxed potatoes, boxed stuffing and other holiday food supplies are overflowing at the Burbank Temporary Aid Center, but center officials say donations are sparse for a commonly ignored group in need. “Every year, when people think, ‘Oh, yeah, we need to do something for the poor kids at Christmastime,’ you think of the little kids,” center Executive Director Barbara Howell said. “You don’t think of the kids 14 to 17.

MEDIA CITY CENTER — In a cordoned-off area on Cypress Avenue, a 200-pound tiger lounged on his side in the shade on Thursday, occasionally humoring onlookers with a glance in their direction. A few of the adults and children lined up behind the barrier leaned in to try to catch the tiger's attention, drawing a sharp rebuke from one of his keepers. "We bring Mungar out to events to show why animals like this don't make good pets, only dogs and cats and birds — those types of animals," said Pat Nelson, a volunteer at the Wildlife Way Station in Little Tujunga Canyon.
