The teams took some time to check out fish and aquatic animals at an aquarium to pick one animal to replicate on their model. The real kicker is that their models will be completely submerged under water in a tank in front of the judges for the evaluation. That means that the makeup, prosthetics, and costume pieces all have to withstand being underwater! The results really were amazing and worth the hype and the wait!
I really loved the LionFish character that was created by Athena and Heather, but you have got to hand it to the winners were Matt and Tara's iridescent, flowy lyretail basslet fish. I had high hopes for the two teams that were both making dragonfish makeup characters, one of my favorite sea creatures. Here are some pics from the Face Off website:
