Some people will do anything to look like their favorite Hollywood celebrities.

Remember that time we showed you the guy who spent $150,000 on plastic surgery to look like his beloved Kim Kardashian?

Well, one Canadian artist, Marie-Lou Desmeules, found a way to make people look like star-studded icons for just a fraction of the cost.

In her latest project, Paint + Plastic Surgery, Desmeules transforms total strangers into celebrities simply using pieces of plastic and some paint. Not to mention, a couple doses of imagination.

Desmeules’ comical portraits feature the recreated faces of everyone from “Baywatch” babe Pam Anderson to Hulk Hogan and even Kim Jong-un.

While her interesting doppelganger portraits appear to be pretty hilarious at times, they ultimately question the roles of celebrities and the societal ideals of beauty.

While some of her techniques might leave you looking a bit botched, you can at least look like your favorite famous person without going under the knife — until you shower, that is.

Take a look at the photos below to see the Paint + Plastic Surgery series.
