Vecna Has
Stranger Things
Fans All Saying
The Same Thing
By MIKAEL TRENCH
In Season 4, Volume 1 of “Stranger Things,” one of the most terrifying additions must be that of the main villain, Vecna (Jamie Campbell Bower). The bizarre, Lovecraftian-esque creation of the Upside Down is accomplished by a full prosthetic outfit, and a behind-the-scenes video reveals the process that has wowed fans and has them laughing.
A time-lapse video posted on Facebook shows the process that transforms Bower, and it's an impressive feat of practical makeup that is rarely seen in show business nowadays. Since it takes a team of four people over six hours to do, it truly is an immense feat to pull off.
Thankfully, Bower isn't expected to sit still, and the video shows him talking on his phone and even sipping on a Starbucks drink, all while in the Vecna makeup. Facebook user John Arrambide jokingly commented, "Make sure Vecna gets his Starbucks fix. He gets cranky without his morning dose of caffeine,” and many others offered similar Starbucks-related comments.
