10News "Face Off": cosplay transformation at San Diego Comic Con

SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- One of the best things about Comic-Con is you can be whatever you want to be and there’s an abundance of cosplayers and special effects makeup to enjoy. 

Social Media Producer Stacy Haynes was turned into a mutant with the help of Los Angeles-based Cinema Makeup School at Comic-Con. 

The school aims to offer up-to-date education to aspiring makeup artists and special effects technicians.

Makeup Artist Miranda Jory glued a prosthetic special effects piece to Stacy’s face and got to work - transforming her into the mutant.

Jory was on multiple seasons of the Syfy show ‘Face Off’ with Cinema Makeup School Director of Education Ve Neill.

Both Jory and Neill were at the school’s booth at San Diego Comic-Con Friday, and they drew huge crowds who loved watching them transform people’s faces right in front of them.

The entire mutant makeup process took about two hours, but Jory said if she had more time she could make the makeup look even more real and frightening.
