    Hey, so I'm looking into how to do the shaving scene from Sweeney Todd for a friend of mine. If anybody has done it before or has any ideas on how to work the Sweeney/Pirelli shave-off so that the beard (false of course) can be "shaven" off cleanly post them here. Thanks so much.

    Its usually done where Sweeney "masks" the person he's shaving so you don't see their face (they are sitting) midway through the song. Sweeney removes the fake beard and the clean shaven face is revealed when Sweeney steps to the side. --- "I winna da race!"

    Train your Sweeney to shave skillfully. Start off with all your ensemble having beards. Rotate them through each night.

    (Don't take me seriously).

    We used liquid latex and lots of crepe hair. It was really neat. Sweeny actually shaved the crepe hair off the latex. It turned out really awesome.
