Imagine if you had the ability to transform yourself into anyone. Who would you choose?

With the ever-growing hype around cosplay, people are getting utterly creative with the tools they use: from budget-friendly household items to food. And while the results of those parody-style experiments can be hilarious, we definitely still appreciate the traditional cosplay classics created from make-up, wigs, and costumes.

21-year-old Russian singer, make-up artist and goddess of cosplay Jules Gudkova has a natural talent and killer skills of bringing characters of popular movies, TV shows, modern and childhood cartoons, and even toys to life with extreme accuracy. One day she’s an innocent princess, another - a whimsical animated character or a badass superhero. And although her uncanny impersonations look effortless, we guarantee that a lot of time and effort is involved.

A combination of various media, genres and creative tools make for head-turning makeovers that compliment any taste. From geeks to little princess wannabes, her stunning artistry has built her an impressive following of 83k on Instagram.

We don‘t encourage you to change your appearance, and self-love always comes first but turning yourself into someone you look nothing alike can be fun and very entertaining. Here‘s some inspiration for your next Comic-Con or a dress-up party!

The Moscow-based young artist says she is a ‘Disneynerd’ and her affection for cartoons perfectly reflects in her works. She’s transformed herself into probably every princess created: tomboyish Merida, gorgeous Ariel, and the beloved “Frozen” sisters, you name it she's done it. Jules draws inspiration both from modern pop culture, like superheroes from Marvel’s blockbusters or Game of Thrones characters, and nostalgic classics, like voluptuous Jessica Rabbit, Princess Leia or enchanting Morticia Addams.

The surreal world of cosplay invites talented individuals to pay tribute to their favorite movie, video game or book characters. Naturally, we see imitations of same characters all over the Internet which reflects whatever’s trending in today’s pop culture. Jules Gudkova is no exception, but while she has impersonated some of the most famous characters, some of her artworks are a breath of fresh air.

It's really amazing how she can change her face shape just by using makeup!

While cosplay at its core is the practice of transforming into a particular character, it’s more than just playing dress up. Rather than buying a finished costume, cosplay involves handcrafting and sourcing perfect pieces to recreate detailed looks. Taking into account the professional approach, lots of time, effort and expenses are invested, and cosplay becomes more than a hobby or creative pursuit for many people; it becomes a career and, for some, a way of life.

"Cosplay test on Rapunzel from 2017. Honestly, Rapunzel is my most unrealizable cosplay plan. While still a teenager, I often watched a cartoon about her, and I really wanted to make her costume entirely... Her dress and crown look incredibly beautiful! But I understand that my nose and face shape are completely different from Rapunzel, so... and without Eugene, I would hardly have decided to do it. I had the same situation with “Zootopia”, but then I found myself Nick and cosplay happened"
