It’s time to get ready for the arrival of body painted superheroes. You’ve probably heard of cosplay but Canadians Lianne Moseley and Kay Pike, two makeup artists and designers, are taking dressing up as fictional characters to new, more paint-y levels. They have been getting the internet’s attention lately thanks to their “cospainting.”

Both use body paint to transform themselves, in the case of Pike, and themselves and others in the case of Moseley, into body painted superheroes from the Marvel and DC universe, or any other well known pop culture characters. The results are incredible, they look like they’ve stepped off the comic page or from out of a cartoon.

Both have Instagram accounts, Moseley is @lustredust and Pike is @kaypikefashion, where they showcase their impressive work, and Pike livestreams her painting sessions on Twitch where people can ask questions about the process. Sometimes these sessions can last for up to 14 hours. She also uploads time-lapsed versions of the sessions to YouTube. You can check out her Lady Deadpool above and more of her videos on Youtube..

Why Lianne Moseley & Kay Pike Like Cospainting

Body Painted Superheroes.

Moseley tells Mashable.com that she grew up, thanks to her brother, watching, “X-men animated series, Batman cartoons, Tim Burton movies, Power Rangers, the works! As a 80’s baby and a 90’s kid, these were all the characters I fantasized about.”

Pike only started “cospainting” last year, she told Metro.co.uk. “I started painting myself in early December 2015 with my Attack On Titan face paint (the character with a skinless body). It went viral and I got invited to stream painting live online. I have been doing a body painted superheroes paint session twice a week ever since.”

Both of them deserve all the praise and attention, because the results speak for themselves. You can check out some examples of their body painted superheroes below and go to Moseley and Pike’s Instagram accounts.
