And now he's back as Chaos, the primary personification of Apocalypse, where he rocked the Special Makeup category at FX CON, a special makeup competition in Prague, CZ. This is FX CON's 10th year in Prague, and this competition's creators are Vlad Taupesh and Studio FX creator Josef Rarach himself.
Rarach personally reached out to me and told me a little about his costume, with makeup by artist Vlad Taupesh. The prosthetics are made primarily of foam and latex, and the entire ensemble took 5 full days to create. Looking at it, I'm shocked it only took that short amount of time, honestly. The details and texture stuns me, and even as I'm writing this I can't stop staring.
I don't even know what more I can say about this - the incredible artistry speaks for itself. It's beautiful, otherworldly, a little terrifying, and everything I love to see in costuming and body art. Wonderful job and congratulations to the team who made this astonishing creation possible!
Now, enjoy the rest of this stunning collection!
