Playful Illustrations Show Pop Culture Icons Dressed Up as Each Other

The characters in Alex Solis’ Icons Unmasked illustration series put IRL Halloween costumes to shame.

By depicting beloved fictional characters “unmasked” as other fictional characters, Icons ranges from visual puns (Beast from X-Men as The Beast from Beauty and the Beast) to clever jokes (the intentionally campy Count from Sesame Street as the accidentally campy Edward Cullen from Twilight) to unexpectedly poignant connections between kindred spirits (Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh as Sadness from Inside Out). It’s a charming, and seasonally appropriate, homage to classic characters across genres. The full series is posted on Solis’ website; check out some of the highlights below.
