Face Off: Our Top Looks - Season 8, Episode 8
We love us some Clive Barker. Sure, he's one of the best horror novelists of all time, but his work as a filmmaker has created some of the most iconic horror characters in the history of the genre, from the monsters of Midian in Nightbreed to the nightmarish, vengeful Candyman to, of course, the philosophising demon we've come to affectionately know as Pinhead in Hellraiser.
What's easier said than done is "Create a Clive Barker kinda character," but the artists gave it their all and came up with some truly stunning creatures. Take a gander, for we have such sights to show you ...
Season 8, Episode 8: "Dressed to Kill"
Top Looks (Judges):

Logan's creation was deemed 'Safe' by the judges, but to us, his was the most Clive Barker-esque of all the characters. This guy, who keeps a catalog of this various poisons on his own arm, would be right at home not only in Hellraiser but also in Nightbreed, a well-regarded Barker film that, oddly enough, wasn't mentioned once in the episode.
We just love this thing. We have no idea why the judges didn't think this was very "Clive Barker-esque" -- it's imaginative, sexy and ... there's something kind of British about it, no? Another slam dunk from the Girl Wonder.
This doesn't scream Barker to us, but the character is so cool and well-executed that it deserves high marks. Really, this is arguably Kelly's greatest Face Off solo work to date.
