If Marilyn Monroe sang 'Happy Birthday Mr. President' to JFK looking like she does in Marilyn's Masquerade, the reported affair between the two probably wouldn't have existed.

Artist Lindsay Marie has given Marilyn Monroe a makeover that makes you rethink her sex symbol status. Instead of an homage piece, Marilyn's Masquerade defaces the late actress in favor of a new look. Chances are you'll recognize the new persona that Marie has given to each photo, and the pop cultural status each holds. She's transplanted faces such as Heath Ledger's Joker, Jason's hockey mask from Friday the 13th and Gene Simmons' demon makeup onto Monroe's face that strips away the whole blond bombshell image.

I wonder how Marilyn would look with Darth Maul's Rorschach-like face. Stats for Defaced Blonde Bombshells Trending: Older & Warm
