Cosplayer and makeup artist Kelton was a fan of Parasyte when he was younger. It’s a science fiction horror manga that focuses on Shinichi Izumi. An alien parasite takes over the character’s right hand, and things just get weirder from there. His hand becomes deformed and bizarre, and Kelton made it look extra creepy. He says:
Sculpting the prosthetics for this was fun! I lifecasted my fingers and sculpted over them in chavant clay. They were then molded in silicone, cast in polyfoam and blended onto my fingers with gelatin. The eyeball was made from friendly plastic and painted with acrylics and fiberglass resin for the translucency on the iris. The lips were sculpted in chavant and cast in gelatin. They were painted with alcohol paint and pax!
