Makeup artist Andrea De La Ossa began to gain notoriety online thanks to her insane ability to turn herself into terrifying horror characters with nothing but makeup. She breathes new life into classic pop culture characters with her makeup transformations, but the real magic is in her very own designs. It’s crazy to think that some of her original characters haven’t been snatched up by Hollywood and turned into monsters on the big screen! Prepare to step inside another world of horror thanks to Andrea De La Ossa and her incredible imagination.
1. The artist herself
Andrea De La Ossa rarely posts pictures of herself online, so let’s take a look at what she looks like without creative makeup before we dive into her incredible ability to create unforgettable characters.
This iconic monster from the sea reinvented the horror sub-genre known as “creature features.” This design is creatively executed from the shoulders down, and it looks both fun and intense at the same time!
3. Harley Quinn from Suicide Squad
Get ready to lock and load with Daddy’s Little Monster when Warner Bros. Studios releases the blockbuster movie Suicide Squad this summer. This is one bad girl who will NEVER be tamed.
4. Xenomorph from the Alien franchise
The Xenomorph is one of the most memorable monsters in the history of Hollywood. Every evil creature from outer space that’s on the big screen will have to stand in the shadow of the Xenomorph’s massive influence on sci-fi.
If you think this is the best this artist is going to get, buckle up because she has a ton of classic characters coming up, including Wade Wilson from Deadpool!
5. The Bride from The Bride of Frankenstein
Ah yes, The Bride is one of the key characters in one of the most tragic love stories in the horror genre. All the Creature wants is to be loved by one of his own kind, but even she struggles to understand him.
6. Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas
Not only is Sally one of the most compassionate of all the ladies in the Disney Universe, she’s also the most misunderstood. It takes a special kind of lady to date Jack Skellington.
7. Freddy Krueger from The Nightmare on Elm Street
Freddy Krueger never had a makeover that looked this good. The way the artist decked herself out like the Master of all Nightmares from her chest up makes this legendary character come to life in a brand new way. RIP Wes Craven, may your marvelously imaginative characters live on in pop culture forever!

9. Ballerina Dentata from The Cabin in the Woods
The Ballerina Dentata is from the monstrous finale of the modern horror milestone The Cabin in the Woods. The movie is from the wild mind of Joss Whedon, who directed the first two Avengers movies.
10. “Hashtag. No Filter.”
Talk about breaking through to the audience! This piece was inspired by a cracked phone screen. It’s almost as if the artist is trying to remind everyone that we are all human despite how much technology is a part of our everyday lives.
This design is enough to send anyone into shock — the subject looks like she’s been bled out to the bone. It’s crazy to think that this pattern is made from additional layers of makeup when it looks as if you are peering into the body of the subject.
The creature behind the surface of design looks like it is trying to escape from the beneath the skin in this person’s face! The level of detail that goes into each design is truly astonishing.
