Halloween is right around the corner, and it's never too early to get inspiration. Look no further than Tenisha G. Billington, a woman who is taking Instagram and TikTok by storm with her amazing superhero-inspired makeup and cosplay looks. She's a professional makeup and special effects artist based out of New Jersey, who also models and attends cosplay events. Billington uses her incredible skills to transform herself — and occasionally her husband — into iconic superhero characters from Marvel, DC, and beyond.
Billington has transformed herself into recognizable characters including Teen Titans' Starfire, Nebula and Gamora from Guardians of the Galaxy, and DC favorites Catwoman and Poison Ivy. While superhero costumes are her specialty, she shares cosplays from movies ranging from Avatar to The Nightmare Before Christmas. She's also not afraid of turning herself into an anti-hero like Venom:
