Here at ComiConverse, we are always on the lookout for amazing comicontent from across the comics and pop-culture universe; be it amateur or professional. So it was with a real sense of excitement that we came across photos from San Diego Comic-Con 2015 (SDCC), depicting students of the Cinema Makeup School (CMS), which is based in Los Angeles, California.

The photo which fronts this article, a towering cosplay of The Mad Titan: Thanos, was the one which initially caught our attention. As it turned out, however, that was only one of the cosplays that the School had taken to Comic-Con in 2015. We subsequently reached out to CMS to see if they would be so kind as to share more of their story with us.

What follows is a series of amazing photos, demonstrating the exceptional skill and creativity of CMS students, who dazzled SDCC audiences with their stunning costume and makeup designs.


We hope you enjoy taking them in as much as we did.

Brace yourselves.
