Charleston, WV native RJ Haddy appeared on SyFy Channel's Face Off Season 2 Finalist and Fan Favorite, Face Off Season 5 Returning Vet, and now one of the Stars of SYFY' s FOXY and Co.
Rj was one of the 14 contestants on this Season's (2) Face Off seen on SyFy.

This program also includes his special effects class.
RJ earned his original spot on Face Off by winning the Syfy Viewers Choice Contest at the 2011 Comic Con in San Diego, where he competed against two other artists in a live make-up challenge, using prosthetics, paint and airbrushing to transform a live model into any creature.
RJ was trained at the Joe Blasco Makeup School in Hollywood. He worked at special-effects company Alterian Inc. as a shop runner and production assistant followed by a brief stint at Amalgamated Dynamics Inc. RJ moved back home ten years ago to help his family. He received his Regents Bachelor's of Arts at West Virginia State. RJ now teaches film, television, multimedia and special effects to high school students at his alma mater in Charleston, West Virginia.
RJ REALLY enjoys meeting fans of Face Off and is very passionate about progressing and moving forward with his art and the education of others in it, especially kids. RJ is using his skills seen in Face Off to work on more projects and to open up a studio in West Virginia.
