Pixar is one of the few studios out there that makes genuinely fantastic sequels, and now we can add Finding Dory to that list. The story follows the forgetful fish from Finding Nemo and the search for her estranged parents.
The reviews are in and it looks like Finding Dory could be one of the best films of the year. Audiences who have already seen the movie are raving about the new characters and touching storyline, but some are taking their fandom even further.
Meet Chrisspy, a YouTube makeup artist who took her enjoyment of Pixar's latest film to a place that few would dare to venture. That's right, guys. Chrisspy transformed herself into a cartoon fish!
If you too would like to morph into Dory, just follow these simple steps to be the envy of fish-themed costume parties everywhere.
First, find a bald cap — or perhaps a flesh-tone swim cap — and glue down your eyebrows to create a blank canvas, allowing the magic to begin.
Next, sketch out a general outline to achieve a flat, angular look, otherwise your face will look too human and not fishy enough. Remember, guys — attaining that fishlike appearance is crucial for your full-on transformation into Dory.
Start applying both paint and shadows to fill in the larger areas and then add the finishing touches, including an open smiling mouth, complete with small teeth. Dory's a happy critter, presumably because short-term amnesia forces her to forget any of life's problems, so the smile is very important.
Now that you've finished painting your face to look like our fishy friend, it's time to add the kind of 3D props that Lady Gaga would sell her meat dress for. Chrisspy recommends you enlarge a printed picture of Dory, which you can use to cut the tail and fins from. Attach them to your face using bobby pins and liquid latex. A glue stick just won't cut it.
Et voilà! The finished product. The likeness is uncanny, right? Meet a friend with this Dory makeup and they'll think they've somehow ended up in the middle of their new favorite Pixar movie.
Chrisspy has her own YouTube channel dedicated to her incredible transformations, which you can find right here. If you ever get bored of turning into a fish, try transforming into Buzz Lightyear instead, using more of Chrisspy's ingenious tips.
