Why cosplay when you could look like you've just stepped straight from the pages of a comic book? Lianne Moseley's wonderful makeup creations transform people into superheroes that look more at home in comic pages than they do in the flesh.

Although Moseley's makeup work doesn't quite hit the eerie perfection of looking just like a drawing like the makeup art we've featured before, the pictures do achieve a similar sort of surreality - to see big, bold colouring and thick inky lines on an actual person's body. It's less an emulation of a comic page, and more like a 3D comic character coming to life off the page into the real world. It's bizarre, but also kind of cool.
That said, when comic book stylisation meets actual human elements, like this open-eyed Green Arrow below, it can be a little bit freaky:

Okay, a lot freaky. AHHHHHH CLOSE YOUR EYES AND LOOK LIKE OLLIE AGAIN PLEASE.
