For Game of Thrones fans, now is a very difficult time. With the recent season just coming to a close, we are basically at the farthest point from a new season that one could ever be. Now, we have long and dark times ahead of us, with nothing to do but imagine what could possibly be about to go down in Westeros. But luckily, while we navigate this darkness, we have things like this to tide us over.
This young makeup artist has used his talent to fight the pain away, taking his brushes and pigments to a new level by transforming himself into his favorite Game of Thrones characters. Even better? They’re all women, from feisty Arya to loyal Brienne to the constantly-smirking-and-now-murderous Cersei Lannister. His makeup transformations are truly uncanny, and he’s shared all of them to Instagram for your enjoyment. Check some of them out for yourself below.
His name is Paolo Ballesteros.
