#7 - Annie, ‘Attack on Titan’
This bodypainting project must have been a “colossal” undertaking for Tabitha, who managed to pull off a convincing rendition of Attack on Titan’s brutal Female Titan. (Let’s just hope she doesn’t crystallize in the meantime.)

Tabbitha’s striking take on Wonder Woman is so impressive, it almost seems like actress Gal Gadot stepped in for a quick photoshoot!
#5 - Lestat, ‘Interview with the Vampire’
