Nikki the Painting Lady's selfie game is strong!

Obviously, the selfie game of this woman is off the roof with the horrifying faces she transforms herself into that we're certain only a fiend's mother will love. With the help of makeup and the right lighting and background, Nikki Shelley aka Nikki the Painting Lady turns into the lovechild of your nightmares and a Wes Craven film.

The mother of three from Rugby, Warwickshire is entirely self-taught. She started out by painting on her kids faces for Halloween. When she realised that she can't do it to her kids and even her husband all the time, she started practising on her face. Now, she plans to have a go into prosthetics and hopefully be able to work in TV and film.

Some pretty insane Halloween ideas! Wish we could paint like Nikki, though! There's more 3-D art here by another talented artist, Hikaru Cho. If you're into superheroes, though then check out this boy who turns himself into superheroes with makeup.
