A Latino artist born in LA, wanted to pay tribute to the Chola Gangster style by putting it to a test on famous celebrity faces. The style involves a “sharpied” eyebrow, dark lip liner, and fumes from a can of aqua net. There is also that signature body tattoo especially in the neck and chest area.
Michael Jason Enriquez is a contemporary artist who has an eye for flair and humor of a natural comedian. Combine these two attributes and the result is spectacular. In his own words he describes the art he created as “a product of LA where subcultures, celebrity obsession, street art, and stupidity are rolled up together like one of those bacon wrapped hot dogs sold in Holywood Blvd. Now that is a mouthwatering feast right there. If you are not yet convince this can turn out pretty awesome aside from hilarious then see for yourself and be blown away by these celebrities’ transformation.
1. Are you team Jacob?
This Twilight star has moved many lass with his manly physique and piercing eyes. He entered stardom in Twilight Saga when it opened in 2007. The phrase Team Jacob has been a catch phrase among teenagers all over the world. Quite astonishing though is his cholafied version is screaming Team Eduardo on his Chin tattoo. If that doesn’t make you smile plus his arched eyebrow, then you are as cold as Edward.
2. The Notebook hunk turned pretty
Ryan Gosling starred in some of our favorite tv shows like Goosebumps and Are You Afraid of the Dark? But his career started to skyrocket when he played the lovable role of Noah Calhoan in the most epic love story of all time- The Notebook. In this picture though, I kind a sensing that it will even be harder for Allie Hamilton (the love interest of Noah played by actress Rachel McAdams) to recognize her love, I further guess this look may give her a heart attack
3. British songstress in tear
She is a Grammy award winning musical artist. Adele’s music has touched our hearts and left a mark to stay. She sings in deep sorrowed mood, blended in her vocal strength. In this Chocofied version of this musical gem, it all seemed to be fitting to put a tear drop in her eyes since her music has that melancholy theme to it. I must say too that those thin pointed eyebrows suits her just fine, she is still pretty.
4. Sweet little Megan of Drake and Josh tv series
She grew right in front of our eyes, but we never suspected her to shave her eyebrows this way more so that she starred in children and teen programs in Nickelodeon. On her younger years, we also fell in love with her as on a comedy film School of Rock starring Black Jack. There is no doubting this pretty curly girl will rock this Cholafied look as well.
5. Canadian artist’s new swag
This talented singer, writer and actor is not afraid to pout those lips and shave those brows. Despite his Grammy awards, this Canadian musical artist has continuously reinvented himself to become better at his craft. This new look though may have been a few step brave than he should be. Also his PR people should rethink that self advertisement in his forehead.
6. New Olympic criterion.
This 11 time Olympic swimmer medalist is sporting a new look that can very well be tested in the next Olympic games. Imagine if we can have all athletes Cholafied , that will certainly look so cool to watch. I bet even the most boring event will be amusing to witness. One piece of advise though Mr. Rayna Lochte, make sure you put on a water resistant make up before you dive in that pool .
7. The teary eyed presidentiable
Republican’s standard bearer can’t seem to stop weeping when Obama side swept him in the polls in 2012. We got to give it to this guy for not shaming tears. He is indeed a decent politician. As for now, he is seen to be enjoying Cholafied art and is thinking of using it as campaign strategy for the next elections.
8. Hathaway kicks ass
This Devil Wears Prada star is looking even more edgy with her Cholafied version. If she survived Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada and endured Julie Andrews in Princess Diaries, what is Chola art compared to that? This lady is blessed with iconic face that whatever you put on her, she will just kick ass and in this look she is edgier than before.
9. The look to take him to no 1 spot in the Billboard Chart
Chris Brown is an amazing singer and dancer. He is an American artist making waves in the world arena. This guy also is very much into fashion and style. This Cholafied look seems to suit him just fine, he looks pretty with those brows. I wonder if the dog thinks otherwise…
10. Supernatural cholafied
Vampire or not, this look is gorgeous on this man’s skin. He has a flawless face that even the strong feminine detailing of the make-up is not a hindrance in showing his fierce look. The star we followed in The Days of Our lives and to now Supernatural, has all the right to wear this look and bang some scores. The intricate tattoo on his neck of the warrior angel which says: “I will fear no evil” in Latin is testament to his iconic role in the tv series.
11. Bad girl Rihanna
This talented actress shuffles many roles in her hands. She is an amazing singer, a blooming actress, and a successful fashion designer. Her many hits, one among them is Umbrella, resonates to all audience worldwide. She is well known to experiment with her looks, using variety of make up transformations. This Cholafied version is something that takes her to a new height of what bad girl looks like.
12. Malefiscent in a whole new level
Angelina Jolie is a crowd favorite. She has proven to adapt in any role given her with ease and fluidity. This Cholafied look she has here reminds me of her recent conquer of the character Malefiscent, with a twist of cat woman. This look fits her face contour perfectly. If she remove this make up before the kids see her, we will have no trouble.
13. The Ellen show
This tv host comedian has dominated talk show since 2003. Her witty, frank, and lively spirit has made her a favorite among viewers. Her show is never a bore. What more if she turns up with this look in an episode. That is most interesting to see. Ellen usually read blogs like this and show it in her program. Share this article to as many as you can and we might just see her Cholafied live on tv!
14. Thor’s brother is gay (that explains a lot)
Tom Hiddleston has effective played his role as Loki in the Marvel saga, Thor. He never fails to make me wish to shove down a fork down his throat every after ending of the film. His conniving and despicable character though in this movie may have an explanation after all. He is Gay and is secretly in love with Thor and only wants his attention. See our favorite villain Cholafied in this next pic and let your imagination run wild.
15. Sabrina the Teenage Chola
Melissa Joan Hart is the girl we grow up fantasizing we could be. And why not, powers even sorcery is attractive to a kid. This look though may change the good with we grow up into and turn her to a black one instead.
16. Miley’s exploits
Miley Cyrus has change (for the better or for the worse, you be the judge) since her Hanna Montanna days. Oh how we’ve missed that sweet girl in the Disney series. Well, time change and goes to with people. She had taken an interest in all sorts of crazy looks recently. Her last album “Can’t Be Tamed” totally fits this Cholafied version of her. I am pretty sure she hasn’t tried this one yet.
17. Transformer is transformed to be Cholafied
This start from the box office hit movie Transformers has been given a do over. And I can’t say it’s bad. His boy next door gave him the saving grace with his Cholafied version. Let us see what Bumble bee and Optimus Prime got to say with his new look.
18. Bieber fever
This you tube talent turned Billboard chart forerunner is looking fab in Chola art. Those eyebrows may be relented by Canadian fans but as for me, it look pretty natural on this Bieber fever. His 60 million followers on twitter will be amused to see him in this make up.
19. Pretty cholafied
Lana Del Rey does not only make beautiful music, she also offers a mystique face. This look where she was Cholafied is amazing on her, new yet amazing. She grew in New York so there is nothing Latino in her but she does look the part. Those perked up eyebrows and defined lips compliments those long red fingernails perfectly. This is one gorgeous Chola art.
