Ripley Artist Wins SyFy’s Face Off!

And the Winner is…

Congratulations to our very own Laura Tyler for winning the SyFy channel show Face Off! Face Off is a reality show where contestants compete for the title of Best Special-Effects Make-Up Artist.

Laura joined Ripley’s Believe It or Not! in 2012 and works as an artist in our warehouse creating wax figures for our Odditoriums around the globe.

Laura competed in season 3 of the show, and was one of the final four. Face Off asked her to come back for season 5: Vets vs, Rookies.

Looking over her body work from the season, it’s easy to see why she took home the grand prize!

Check out the gallery and leave us a comment telling us which one is your favorite.
