Bet you couldn't believe your eyes.

Kay Pike is a 28-year-old model and artist from Calgary, Canada, who has become famous for painting herself as popular comic book characters. Formerly a more traditional cosplayer, Pike started painting herself up in December 2015. Since then her renditions have run the gamut of geekery, from Dragon Ball's Picollo to Marvel's Phoenix, from a titan on Attack On Titan to DC's Robin and Poison Ivy.

The print is available here: http://bit.ly/1Tv03MO if you would like an autographed copy of the artwork! This is defiantly my favourite pose from the shoot :) I worked very hard on the collar illusion. Rogue was an exercise in drawing clothing, I often am just trying to sort out illusions of metallic edges but I do not have enough just, clothes.... (says to body paint model) But giving that collar depth, that was my goal and challenge. :) I cant wait to practice even more.  Painted live on https://www.twitch.tv/kaypikefashion April 23rd.  ____________ Paint Supplies are from @sillyfarm , for 10% off and to show your love use KAYPIKE10 as a code Wig is from @ardawigs A Matilda in Mahogany with a Long White bang clipped in backwards. use KAYPIKEARDA as a code ________________ #rogue  #xmen #sillyfarm #paint #art #makeupartist #mua #bodyart #fabmakeup #makeup #beauty #twitchcreative #twitch #bodypaint #comicbook #fab  #superhero #comics #comic #comicmakeup #yyc  #calgary #banff #bodyessy #bodyssey2016 #marvel  #SigmaPRO #FloridaSupercon #cosplay #cosplaygirl  @floridasupercon  @northernfancon @ccxpoficial  @xmenmovies @xmengram @xmenewsdaily @xmentagram @xmen_ig @xmengeek @xmenfanbase @melissadisneyjames @cattaber @meganfahlenbock @aaronlopresti @norm_rapmund @scottylobdell @kierongillen @brianmbendis @marc_silvestri @jimleeart @whilceportacio @joemadx @bryanjaysinger @sigma_pro @sigmabeauty @twitch  @marvel_pics @marvel.studios @marvel_entertainment @fxcosplay_  @faba_tv  @marvel

Incredible.

What's so eye-catching about her works is that they look like they were torn right out of comic book pages. It's impressive how she was able to retain that look and translate it onto a vastly different canvas, her body.

It takes her about three to 15 hours to paint herself, with the necessary materials costing about $80 to $150 per character. The investment has paid off for Pike as she's seen her Instagram page grow from 12,000 followers to its current 193,000 in less than six months.

Follow her on Instagram where you can see more of her works (@kaypikefashion) or on Twitch where she livestreams her body-painting session from time to time.
