Okay, the "artist" swears up and down it's real. If that's the case, it's DAMN well done. Thoughts?

Ha ha.. I have no idea on this one. One moment I think yah..it's real the next nope then back to real.

At first glance it looks pshopped..but the explanation is believable imo, so I'll give the artist the benefit of the doubt.

If it is true I have to give credit to the girl who made the costume then, looks cool, and no reason not to believe them. Like Marko says I would give the photographer the benefit of doubt.

If you check out her neck in the photo in the upper left you can see where the paint was wearing off. I'd say real.

It's certainly effective. It is hard to tell, but just on the side of real.

There are several pictures in which you can see the paint wearing off. So I'm guessing this is real. I must say, very nicely done. Could have fooled me easily...

Or is that photoshopped? At any rate if it is real it would have been cool to see live.
