ELKINS, W.Va. -- A West Virginia native is competing on season five of "Face Off,'' the competition show for makeup artists and costume designers on the SyFy channel. The first of 13 episodes airs tonight.
Steve Tolin grew up in Elkins and says he decided to pursue a career in special effects after attending the West Virginia Governor's School for the Arts.
The Inter-Mountain says Tolin graduated from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, and that's where he's run his own business for 13 years.
Tolin says if he wins, he'll move to Los Angeles and expand his business.
This year's competitors will also be competing against past contestants looking for a second shot at the title.
