The YouTuber Who Can Make Herself Disappear

Makeup artist Kika has gained a massive online following with her tutorial videos—only instead of walking people through how to contour and draw on freckles, she specializes in intricate, mind-boggling illusions, somehow making it look like entire swaths of her body disappear.

She’s used her one-of-a-kind gift with body paint to tie her stomach into a knot, turn herself into a wooden doll, and transform into Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride, racking up nearly half a million YouTube subscribers along the way—an accomplishment that, just a few years back, she would’ve never thought possible.

VICE met up with Kika at her home in Serbia to check out her studio, watch her work firsthand, and hear how she went from an amateur hobbyist to a YouTube star.
