Stunning Before And After Shots That Show The Effort Put Into Hollywood’s VFX And Makeup


Speaking about ‘Pennywise’, let’s not forget the first actor who played him, Tim Curry. Tim Curry’s best makeup role was in 1985 when he played the devil himself in a small dark fantasy movie called ‘Legend’. The movie was not a success but the makeup on Tim was nominated for multiple awards at different award shows.

The 2019 ‘Avengers: Endgame’ saw some unique changes to the characters we know and love. One of the major changes and spoiler alert ahead was fat ‘Thor’. The events of ‘Infinity War’ took a big toll on ‘Thor’ which resulted in him overeating and gaining weight. For this, the actor had to put on a full-body suit to make it look like he indeed gained weight.


James Cameron’s ‘Terminator’ and ‘Terminator 2: Judgment Day’ stand as movies that have highly impacted the VFX makeup and prosthetics department. In the first movie, there was just one terminator but the second one amped up the terminators but kept a lot of the effects practical with makeup. These movies still hold up very well in 2019.

One of the actors who plays a large number of roles as monsters and creatures in makeup is actor Doug Jones. His height and slender frame makes him a perfect candidate for covering in makeup and prosthetics. He played Abe Sapien in “Hellboy” and the water creature in “The Shape Of Water”.
