Cinema Makeup School has done it all. Last year they took on Joker Batman at San Diego Comic-Con—but this year, they tried something truly challenging: Turning a human being into a collectible statue.
The Los Angeles-based Cinema Makeup School returned to San Diego Comic-Con for a seventh year with a new series of amazing cosplay looks. The highlight had to be its partnership with Sideshow Collectibles, where they turned a model into one of the company’s original premium figures: Cleopsis, Eater of the Dead from its Court of the Dead series. A horror take on Cleopatra, the limited-edition figure makes for a truly terrifying subject with a really badass snake.
Check out our video for a detailed breakdown of how the Cleopsis look was achieved, as well as the unique makeup challenges in trying to turn a statue into a living, breathing person. Hint: It involves a bit of extra help.
