Why paper Baroque wigs, you may ask? Russian artist Asya Kozina explains on her Behance page:

Historical wigs always fascinated me, especially the Baroque era. This is art for art’s sake aesthetics for aesthetics, no practical sense. But they are beautiful. I made a series of wigs. Paper helps to highlight in this case the main form and not be obsessed unnecessary details.

Just stay out of the rain.

Take a closer look at the designs below.

When it comes to footwear, humanoid warrior turtles don’t have many options. Our favorite mutant chelonii needn’t worry, though – artists Hussain Almossawi and Quintin Williams have got them covered.

Despite the fact that the Ninja Turtles are, in fact, fictional, they’ve designed special sneakers for them. Designed for comfort, ergonomics, style and – importantly – for feet with two honkin’ great big toes on them, any self-respecting radioactive reptile should find these a rather comfortable option for their day-to-day ninja-ing.

They’re even color-coded for each turtle, which is a nice touch.

Check out some photos of the artists’ work below.

warhol hair

A few days ago, I showed you some very cool new fine art-inspired hair color designs by Ursula Goff. Well, she’s been hard at work and has several new styles inspired by artists like Klimt, Andy Warhol, Monet, Botticelli, and Georgia O’Keefe.

I think Warhol would dig it. Here’s hoping she adds a Lichtenstein and Van Gogh.

Check out more pictures below.

As you can see, Ryan Burke’s makeup is pretty unreal. It is inspired by many sources, from club kids to fashion to art, but most surprisingly is the geometry that influences the symmetrical patterns he uses. He tells Buzzfeed:

I am inspired by symmetry, geometric shapes, drag culture, club culture, fashion, art, unconventional materials, patterns — anything really that alters my appearance and distorts my features.

See more of his amazing work below.

Samurai-inspired Star Wars costume designs are certainly nothing new, but this art by Nikolas A. Draper-Ivey is the first we’ve seen based on The Force Awakens. My guess it that it won’t be long before we see something like this in the Movie Realization figure line.

Check out the entire series below.
