Limited Edition Art of the Face Chart T-Shirt
It’s that time of year again kiddo’s! Halloween always means ghosts, goblins and GAGA! One of Billy’s all time favorite gigs was doing the makeup for Gaga on the Born this Way music video – from the energy to the message – it was a life changing experience for Billy B.
If you have seen the Born this Way video (you probably have since you are here) then you know that there is a lot of awesome makeup throughout what is arguably more of a short film than a music video. One of the standouts is the Gaga’s skeleton makeup and pink ombre wig.
According to Billy, the look was ALOT of work to create. He worked with multiple makeup artist to help create the now iconic look. There is an ethereal “not of this world” energy and feeling that emanates from the screen as you watch Gaga swing her pink wig and strut in her black tuxedo. Sexy, strong and beautiful. Yes, Gaga is a super sexy skeleton!
Everyone on the Billy B Makeup Team wanted him to create a special edition Art of the Face Chart T-Shirt to commemorate his work on the video. If you have ever had the honor of seeing one of Billy B’s face charts in person then you know how much detail and work goes in to them. After several months of back and forth design work he finally settled on this kick ass sugar skull themed skeleton.
Boy oh boy did he deliver! No muffin’ bluffin’ – this shirt is everything!

"Lady Sugar Skull" T-Shirt by Billy B
“Lady Sugar Skull” was created by Billy B as an homage to the original makeup and spirit of the song, Born this Way.
Billy B also took inspiration from the Mexican tradition of making sugar skulls to honor the dead.A sugar skull represents a departed soul. The departed’s name is written on the forehead of the sugar skull and placed on the home hearth or gravestone to honor the return of a particular spirit.
Sugar skull art reflects the folk art style of big happy smiles, colorful icing and sparkly tin and glittery adornments.
