This Is What It's Like To Get Transformed Into A Monster

To get the full experience of SyFy’s Face Off , I had Season 7 contestant Cig Neutron give me a makeover at the show’s studios.

When I asked the publicist for Syfy's Face Off if one of the show's artists would turn me into a monster, I was almost certain the response would be no. Imagine my surprise when I was told they'd be more than happy to show me what goes into being a special effects makeup model. And then imagine my horror when I learned my call time would be 7 a.m.

I arrived at the Face Off studios one early Thursday morning in late August, barely awake but excited about my imminent transformation. Cig Neutron — one of my favorite contestants on the show's current seventh season, thanks to his awesomely unique hats and killer work — had promised to turn me into a hobo demon clown. To be clear, I had no idea what a hobo demon clown was or would look like, but it sounded terrifying, and it combined a bunch of elements we were both excited about. Having watched Face Off since the show premiered on Syfy in 2011, I knew how much work went into successful makeup. That's why I made sure to grab a bite beforehand. And to pee first.

Before we got started, I was given a cream that I was told would help the prosthetics come off more easily after we were finished. Honestly, I was a little bummed out that we were already talking about taking the makeup off. At the same time, I was excited to learn I would not be losing any precious skin in the process.

(Note the bags under my eyes. Again: It was 7 a.m.)
