When it comes to American animated shows, The Simpsons is clearly a jewel within their own right. Lasting over two decades. Within that time, the family have become well known individually. One character was taken so admirably by a photographer, he made her a “reality”.
According to PetaPixel, photographer Alexander Khokhlove teamed up with make-up artist Veronica Ershova and stylist Mikhail Kravchenko to bring to life an image that is the thing of nightmares. Utilizing nothing more than 3D make-up effects, flowers, and clever lighting, the trio managed to transform a model into Marge Simpson. The end result is very relative, but kind of frightening.
This transformation is part of the remarkable series, “The Art of Face”, as reported by Laughing Squid. Alexander’s earlier photo series, “2D or not 2D” and “Weird Beauty” were also well-known for the photographer. What is unique about the Marge Simpson photoshoot is all that went into it. The centerpiece is easily the re-creation of Marge Simpson’s trademark hair – a towering blue bouffant. It was made with chrysanthemums that were spray painted blue and attached to a cylindrical wire cage.
According to the report, Marge Simpson, along with the realistic undertaking, are explained in a block quote:
“Marge Simpson is a cult cartoon character in the present world. We love Marge, that’s why we decided to make her alive using the skills of make-up, hairstyle, floristics and photography. It was important to pay attention to the details of original image. Veronica Ershova, the make-up artist, painted the model face and the stylist Mikhail Kravchenko created the huge hair – the calling card of Marge’s image. We wanted to make unusual hairstyle and Mikhail used real chrysanthemums painted in blue and special frame. With the real flowers we achieved necessary volume and texture.”
As of now, The Simpsons is still running on the Fox Network, and recently paid tribute to Studio Ghibli director, Hayao Miyazaki, as reported here on The Inquisitr.
