We all go somewhere around the world, and want to take some cool souvenirs… Like, for example: shoes! Japan shoe sizes are counted in cm, and most shoe shops will only have sizes up till US8. Which is a pain, if you have a US8.5 (my problem!) You end up staring at wonderful shoes that you cannot really buy because you have 0.5+ size! Is this happening only to foreigners?

Today fan art rocks: living comic book characters! Lianne Moseley‘s work is amazing. She uses make up to turn you into a living comic book character. Literally!

These are real people with real makeup creating something amazing: paper comic book characters that come to live on skin!

Let’s take a closer look to her art.
