As usual, we can expect guts, horror, screams, sex and lots and lots of violence to occur throughout the new season – but what you can’t expect is Evan Peters. So basically, what’s the point? Right?
But anyway, American Horror Story has won ever so many awards for not only the incredible acting, but the makeup and the prosthetics that are used within each season. Whether you’re creating a lizard girl or a bearded lady, the makeup and hair artists have some serious game.
And here are the best on-screen transformations throughout the show.
Ah, the Queen of American Horror Story. The backbone of each season. The one who always makes you feel. Her role in Coven really struck a chord with fans and required one hell of a makeover when she had to play the dying witch. Even in death, she’s still one of the hottest maiden’s around.
Can you imagine turning Meryl Streep’s daughter into a lizard? Jesus I’d be terrified.
This one does not need speaking for, but I’mma speak anyway. Grossman’s performance as Pepper was 10/10 and mainly because of how she looked. The makeup artists did one hell of a job with what they were wanting to achieve. Definitely one of the most memorable characters in the show.
One of her most well-remembered performances because, well, it’s Kathy Bates wearing a freakin’ beard. A little different from her role in Titanic…or Disjointed (420, am I right?).
Excellent makeup skills, scars on point. Even if he had been in an explosion, he reps it pretty good.
What a babe, even covered in mud and God knows what else. Her role in Hotel was truly inspiring make-up wise too. And outfit. Roanoke saw a different look with her being a swamp witch, but she looks so good doing it. * eye heart emoji *
Although Peters got to play a few confusing roles throughout Cult, Warhol was one of the many which was just insane in the makeup department. I mean his cheeks make him look completely different. It actually took me a while to realise it was him.
He played Jesus, that’s enough of a reason. Well done make-up department, well done.
This was her best role out of all the AHS characters she’s played. She was a badass with big ginger hair, what else could you ask for?
Although much hasn’t been shown of the new 1984 season, Lourd’s look is amazing. She looks like the female Jon Bon Jovi and having that much hairspray in really takes some doing. God knows how many brushes that took to get out.
One of the show’s longest running actresses and such a brilliant one. She has gone through many a makeover for the show, being the conjoined twins in Freak Show and the drug addict in Hotel. The character of Wilhemina was one of the most fashionable in the entire series with her ginger hair and eyebrows working a charm.
Still one of the prettiest women on the show. Kind of like Snow White.
A showbiz Queen. She had quite the makeover for this role, having the bowl hair cut wig, neutral makeup and maid outfit.
Honestly this is what I thought Joan Collins would like in her older years anyway. Rich and loving it, a little Cruella de Vil like.
Her only season to date, but she had a nice steady makeover for the role of the drastic feminist.
