Realistic Disguise

Questioning the idea of dress-up, the human face is used as a form of costume

Implications - The concept of disguise is to present oneself as something other than what they are, but the notion of realism in disguise is taking precedent in pop culture. This shift towards hyper-realistic dress-up develops a meta interpretation of self and asserts that humans find nothing scarier than the very humans they are transforming into.
