Elle se transforme en super-héros grâce au body painting

Kay Pike est une véritable artiste du body painting. Mais bien loin de se contenter de faire des tatouages tribaux au airbrush au Manoir mystère Coors Light (désolé, mon passé de barman refait surface), elle utilise son art pour se métamorphoser en super-héros.

La designer et mannequin de 28 ans de Calgary, en Alberta, est suivie par près de 70 000 abonnés sur Facebook et près du double sur Instagram.

En raison de problèmes d’arthrite qui l’empêchent d’utiliser une machine à coudre, la cosplayer (ou «costumadière», en bon français) a dû délaisser quelque peu la confection de costumes et a plutôt décidé de se tourner vers la peinture corporelle pour incarner ses héros préférés. La création de ces maquillages complexes peut parfois nécessiter au-delà de dix heures de travail.

La voici maquillée en Dark Phoenix, Poison Ivy et Starfire.

 

Elle ne se contente par ailleurs pas que de reproduire les costumes de super-héros féminins : elle a aussi revêtu les traits de plusieurs personnages masculins, dont Spider-Man, Deadpool, Captain Canuck, Captain Planet et Freezer.

I Painted a Lady Deadpool on http://www.twitch.tv/kaypikefashion yesterday! Very excited to see the new movie. This video has our favourite 4rth wall humour #deadpool is famous for. Ever since @lustredust https://www.facebook.com/LMMakeupArtist painted me as Lady Deadpool for @edmontonexpoofficial I've been itching to get back into character! I'm really very happy with this one! I used three lighting sources, one ambient white, one spotlight blue and and one pin-light yellow. I was doing a #speedrun paint so I could see how fast I can go after two months of practice, it only took 5 hours! I'm cereal! I had help in my #twitchtv stream, the chat was dictated to me so I could socialize with everyone without having to read and it took this level of paint (normally I would stream for 14 hours) down to a reasonable level! I had time to make balloon things for people and just play and hangout and feel good before a photo-shoot. My moderators were really helping too <3 <3 <3 I HAVE PROOF I can paint end entertain in a reasonable amount of time! SO EVERYONE tell your favourite convention! #ladydeadpool #deadpoolmovie @vancityreynolds @robliefeld #robliefeld #fabiannicieza #rhettreese #paulwernick @briannahilde @edskrein @teenagemillionaire #morenabaccarin @ginajcarano @stefankapicic @deadpoolmovie @deadpool_4real @deadpoolfacts @deadpool.marvel @calgaryexpo @cineplexmovies @kryolanofficial @mehronmakeup @mehroncanada @sephora @bennyemakeup @geekfantasymagazine @comicsandcoffee @comicbookresources @geekculture @badasscosplay @epiccomicpics @marvel @marvel_pics #makeup #bodypaint #yyc #calgary #mua #makeupartist #comic #comicbooks #illusion #costume #cosplay #cospaint #bodyart @twitch #twitchcreative #twitch #marvel #fanart #marveluniverse

This is the Captain Planet Bodypaint I painted on http://www.twitch.tv/kaypikefashion Tuesday night! “We need a super hero for the Earth. Let's call him Captain Planet" No other cartoon I watched as a child has had as much impact on my day-to-day adult life. This show respected it's audience. It was a ridiculous cartoon, yes BUT it got a young persons mind thinking about more going on in the world, not just the TV in front of them. This show handles and delivered to kids way more mature topics then any got anywhere else. Disease, desolation of species, environmental impact, racism, cultural-ism, economic and political issues etc. We got SO much more out of this show then others presented to us. I like being engaged with the real world. and Captain Planet really is my hero. :) #captainplanet #planeteers #eco #ecofriendly #environment #green #planet #earth #superhero #power #retro #cartoon #90s @twitch #twitchcreative #artist  #creative #art #paint #painting  #bodyart #illusion #opticalillusion #facepaint #facepainting #mua #bodypaint #makeup @kryolanofficial #paradisemakeupaq #mehron #mehronmakeup @mehronmakeup @mehroncanada PS. So many of you were asking in stream so here a special make-up hint I made this ridiculous florescent turquoise skintone that was soooo violent and radio-active looking on camera "Captain Planet Cyan" with 1 part Paradise Teal 1 Part Lt.Blue + 4-5 parts white.
