Attending a masquerade ball? Consider wearing your own face!

We're big fans of Sandra Holmbom's work. The Swedish makeup artist can do blood and gore with the best of them, but it's her uncanny turns of visual trickery that really set her apart. And when the two combine? Well, that's when you get masterpieces like this. (Fair warning: this is some pretty graphic costume gore.) » 2/16/14 11:00am 2/16/14 11:00am
