There’s makeup, there’s cosplay makeup, and then there’s the work of Ryan Burke. His designs are otherworldly. He does things with makeup that makes it look almost like masks. He blends three dimensional objects with cosmetics to create unique and unforgettable looks. He told BuzzFeed:
“I am inspired by symmetry, geometric shapes, drag culture, club culture, fashion, art, unconventional materials, patterns — anything really that alters my appearance and distorts my features.”
If you’re designing an original character to cosplay, it’s worthwhile to study techniques like Ryan’s and other makeup artists for inspirations. You can see a couple of Ryan’s creations below.
