Welcome to Hero Makeover, our video series where professional costume designers and makeup artists transform real-world heroes into their favorite characters.
A father named David is our hero in Episode 4. At 6’8″ tall, David felt awkward and out of place before discovering cosplay. By portraying his favorite characters from film and television, he’s able to celebrate his height, and in Hero Makeover’s fourth episode, we help him share this passion with his son, Max. See David and Max cosplay as The Hound—and “The Pup”—from HBO’s Game of Thrones in the video player above.
