Xavier in Stories

Canadian-based cosplayer Kay Pike incredibly turns herself into superheroes like Lady Deadpool, Robin, and more with just body paint.

Life as a cosplayer is hard when it comes to coming up with elaborate costumes to kickass with. Just ask Kay Pike. A fan of comic heroes and heroines and having had experience with modelling, Kay knows just how hard it is to find a way to put together a new costume for her next awesome cosplay. Most materials are either too difficult or too expensive even for a costume designer like her. And that's how she made use of her art skills with body paint for her next cosplay.

Kay first experimented with body paint upon meeting Lianne Moseley, a guest artist at the  Edmonton Comic and Entertainment Expo 2015 who taught her all the basic things she needed to know about body painting and learned the rest on her own, trying new tools and techniques.

Her superhero transformations takes about ten hours each just to complete sans the time it takes to shoot. Not so easy now, is it?
