Slipknot’s Sid Wilson Pays Tribute To Deceased Detroit Area FX Artist
Last week, people from the state of Michigan and many artists around the nation mourned the loss of Laney Chantel, who passed away from an accidental overdose of prescription medicine which was brought on by a massive anxiety attack. Faygoluvers and many others shared their love for her, as she had a massive impact on MANY artists and public figures.
They shared the unfortunate news and a statement brought forth by Laney's family:
Her artistic ability and visions quickly set her apart from other artists in her field and her portfolio blossomed. Laney, as she was known by many, lived her life to the fullest, and accomplished more in her short time on earth, than most do in a full lifetime, including being a contestant on SY/FY networks makeup competition FaceOff and the lead makeup artist for Video of the Year on MTV’s Video Music Awards 2021
When no one else believed In making my idea (of well over 10 yrs of trying) a reality for an animatronic mask of my own face, Laney was the one who stepped up with 100% confidence and excitement with a smile to make it happen. Laney, making dreams come true, I will never forget you and your amazing energy, you will be greatly missed 💔 Up to the heavens with your beautiful soul
The following message was left by her family in the hopes that others can find the help they need:
Alaina struggled with various mental illnesses throughout her adult life. In light of her struggle with mental illness, the family asks you to please consider making donations to The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation. They are committed to alleviating the suffering caused by mental illness by awarding grants that will lead to advances and breakthroughs in scientific research.
