The Bodypaint Artist Who Brought Us Lady Deadpool Has A Whole Superhero Squad

Poison Ivy I painted on last time, and I am painting Again Tomorrow! I really like Pamela IRL. Ivy fights for the world itself, she is like Captain Planet… but a bit of a sociopath. :D Poison Ivy=planeteer haha.  I actually really prefer the New 52 Origin to the old one, its a little more twisted and human and convoluted. Shows she is indeed a neutral character, and ironically very human.  You'll find the animation appropriate as it refers to her M.O. *blows you a kiss* and personally my M.O., long time lurkers know what I am talking about :D This is the exact same wig I used for Starfire too~ a matilda in pumpkin from @ardawigs #poisonivy #bodypaint @ithurman @neilhimself @jimleeart @clarefoley123 @claregrant @milano_alyssa @tarastrong514 @jimmypalmiotti #redhair #yyc #calgary #bodyart @twitch @kryolanofficial @mehronmakeup @mehroncanada @sephora @bennyemakeup #mehronmakeup #kryolanofficial #mehron @wolfefaceartfx @ardacanada #makeupartistsworldwide #makeup #mua #makeupartist #comic #comicbooks #cosplay #cospaint #twitchcreative #twitch #dc #fanart @amazingmakeupart #beauty @comicbookresources  @geekfantasymagazine @comicsandcoffee @comicbookresources @geekculture @badasscosplay @epiccomicpics #wig @suicidesquadmovie #suicidesquad #ArkhamKnight #GothamCitySirens #dccomics #batman #PamelaIsley #green

The above image of a bodypainted version of Poison Ivy highlights the vast combined talents of both designer Kay Pike Fashion and her artist partner, LustreDust. We first brought your attentions to their works with a video-timelapse report, but their newly viral Instagram accounts are remarkable. Superheroes, antiheroes, and supervillains all receive the bodypaint treatment, and the results are stunning. Click the images, and they’ll come to life as video clips. You’ll see.

LustreDust, whose real name is Lianne Moseley, executes much of the bodypainting honors in this team. Many of the still photos look cartoonish and, quite frankly, unreal. This is a testament to this duo’s talents, for these works could have been ripped straight from a graphic novel. Hence the all-important motion footage uploaded to Instagram as well. This Bizarro-Girl job is an example that springs forth from months of bodypaint practice.
