Flower Marge Simpson? This has got to be one of the coolest things we’ve seen in a long time.
Photographer Alexander Khokhlov teamed up with makeup artist Veronica Ershova and hair stylist Mikhail Kravchenko to transform model Kate Moukhina into a real life version of Marge Simpson. And it’s pretty incredible!
According to Laughing Squid, this is part of Khokhlov’s “The Art of Face” series. The model’s face is entirely painted into the Simpsons’ signature hue, and when she closes her eyes you see Marge’s full face. The site quotes the Russian photographer as he explains his choice.
Marge Simpson is a cult cartoon character in the present world. We love Marge, that’s why we decided to make her alive using the skills of make-up, hairstyle, floristics and photography. It was important to pay attention to the details of original image. Veronica Ershova, the make-up artist, painted the model face and the stylist Mikhail Kravchenko created the huge hair – the calling card of Marge’s image. We wanted to make unusual hairstyle and Mikhail used real chrysanthemums painted in blue and special frame. With the real flowers we achieved necessary volume and texture.
Check out the short video above. It’s super cool to watch the process in action.
