Ariana Grande has gone all out for Halloween this year, relying on prosthetics and a team of experts to transform her into a pig-faced character from The Twilight Zone.
The 26-year-old has been teasing fans all week with hints about her costume for the spooky holiday, admitting the TV show was “one of my faves”, and sharing screenshots from the iconic Eye of the Beholder episode.
And on Wednesday, Ariana revealed her final costume, sharing two snaps on Instagram showing the incredible detail that went into creating the look.
In the first, she is seen staring at the camera, with a prosthetic pig nose and downturned mouth covering her own dainty features. Holding a cigarette, the Thank U, Next singer also sports her trademark high ponytail, diamond earrings, and elbow-length gloves.
The next snap is a full-length picture of Ariana, who wears a black dress, opaque tights, and a fur stole for the final look.
“Final procedure was a success,” the star captioned the image.
The Eye of the Beholder episode sees a young woman called Janet Tyler go through a series of surgeries to make her look like everyone else. When her bandages are removed at the end of the episode, viewers see her “normal” pretty face, before the doctors announce the procedure had failed – and come out of the shadows to reveal their own disfigured pig noses and twisted mouths.
Ariana’s look was brought together by her glam team Josh Liu, Daniel Chinchilla, and Julie Hassett, with the latter taking to Instagram to praise prosthetics expert Kevin Haney for creating the facepiece.
“I couldn’t have participated in this without the insane work of @haney7560 who made this prosthetic piece in one day. Like…sculpted, moulded and ran it in ONE DAY. He’s incredible. THANK YOU, KEVIN! And thank you for the referral @thejoshliu! Love ya! Such a team effort! Thanks for having me on board @arianagrande,” Julie wrote.
