Finding Dory: Ellen DeGeneres character brought to life by YouTube makeup artist
Now megafans of Finding Nemo can make their face look just like the lovable blue tang fish, Dory. And we’re not just talking about making fish lips, here.
YouTube makeup artist Chrisspy has been known to create memorable looks, such as her complete Yoda transformation to honor the release of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, and a truly convincing Buzz Lightyear. The artist has taken to her channel to honor Disney once again with a Finding Dory transformation just days before the new film’s release.
The clip begins with various shots of the lifelike Dory “swimming” in a sea of black, accompanied by stuffed Crush and Squirt. Suddenly, Chrisspy begins speaking and we realize the swimming fish is Dory brought to life. As jarring as it is for the viewer, Chrisspy is fully aware of the effect it can have. “It looks, like, really creepy and scary when I’m talking and my eyes are open,” Chrisspy said.
Apart from being an admitted fan of Finding Nemo and eagerly anticipating the upcoming sequel, the YouTuber had a hope for her transformation. “I really, really want Ellen to see this transformation because I’m a huge fan of Ellen and you guys already know that she’s the voice of Dory,” added Chrisspy. “I want you to tweet her, Instagram her, YouTube her, everything.”
Knowing Ellen, she may invite Chrisspy onto her daytime talk show in the near future. Meantime, Finding Dory swims into theaters June 17.
