This Couple Has Used 'Face Swap' In Real Life For Halloween And It’s Epic
| Last updated
When you're in a relationship, Halloween can be a particularly stressful time because picking a costume that works for both of you can be tough. Unless you go as twins, one person tends to stand out and gets more praise than the other.
But what if you went as the other person? Then no one could be upset.
One couple decided to capitalise on a special piece of technology that has been very popular since its debut. The 'face swap' feature of Snapchat was all the rage and had people not only swapping their faces with their mates and family, but also with inanimate objects.
So Nikki and her husband went as each other for Halloween, but made sure it was in keeping with the theme of the annual holiday.
It's also a bit of a throwback to the Nicholas Cage and John Travolta action thriller Face Off. To be honest, they've been pretty meticulous to get the other person's facial features just right. The husband has had his eyebrows groomed, shaved part of his beard and added a bit of lip gloss and eyeliner.
One person on Reddit wrote: "You just wanted an excuse to do his eyebrows."
Another said: "I didn't realise it until this comment. I thought they did the blood in actual makeup and then did a face swap. This is so much more impressive now."
A third made Nikki chuckle by saying: "Holy hell it took me quite a lot of staring to figure out what was actually happening, bravo, but what's it like being married to yourself?"
She insists that this is no Photoshop trickery and just a very skilled makeup artist utilising her skills. It took her more than an hour to get the two masterpieces finished and probably would have been tricky to get all the blood work done on her own face.
Plenty of users commented about how attractive Nikki's husband is as a woman, and she describes him as a 'great sport'. So, if you're planning on doing something with your significant other or friend then you might want to see if you can top this.
The only problem would be if they got separated during a party, which could very well happen, and then they just look like they have had their face torn off. That's not saying it wouldn't still be an awesome outfit, but it would work best when they stick together.
