Featured Artist: Janelle Jex SPFX Makeup Artist
Gory gal Janelle Jex has quite the sunny disposition. Lucky for us, Miss Janelle invites us into the murky dark depths of her yin via darkened dolls, out of this world body painting, and my personal favorite, Special FX Makeup (insert heart eyes emoji).
Finding inspiration from the oddest of every day places, Ms. Jex made gory fun of the hideous hilarity that was the Kylie Jenner lip challenge earlier this year.
Naturally this morbid mama's favorite holiday is Halloween. This passed October she really pulled out all the stops.
This year for San Diego Comic Con she teamed up with pal and toy customizer Matt "Obscure" Perez to make a very cute zombie version of Elsa from Disney's Frozen.
Mind you, it is extremely difficult to achieve this kind of impeccable detail on *such* a small scale. Being the natural creator that she is, she later took a stab at not only painting but sculpting her own dolls as well. Here's imagery of her first independently constructed doll, Wednesday Adams.
As we patiently wait for her to hop on the full time horror cosplayer and doll maker train...follow this creative soul on IG at @missjanellexo
