warpaint This is Crazy: Watch Artist Coco Layne Go From Masculine To Feminine In Less Than Two MinutesQueer visual artist Coco Layne was fascinated by how makeup and clothing could completely alter the way a person was perceived, effectively changing someone’s presentation from masculine to feminine. “I identify as a queer femme person who prefers female pronouns,” she told Bustle. “So it’s fascinating to see the nuanced correlations between how I present myself and the way people treat me.”

That was especially pronounced when she applied for jobs. Layne, who sports chin-length hair with shaved sides, found it nearly impossible to land a job at a conservative women’s retailer with her current ‘do, so she wore a wig, instead, and got the job. “It was a really interesting experience to have to be in a hyper-feminine presentation in the workplace.”

So she made this video, titled “Warpaint.” In less than two minutes, Layne goes from a fully masculine presentation to a girly, femme look. It’s a rather striking transformation, and while most of us don’t do anything so dramatic, we use makeup and clothes to change up the way we look from day to day. Take a look at Layne’s incredible evolution and tell us what you think.
