It's a bird...it's a plane...it's a woman? Some NYC commuters are going to have trouble keeping their eyes on the road as a large wall in New York's SoHo neighborhood will display a mural of a woman's gradual transformation into a bird-woman. This alluring visual is courtesy of Syfy, which commissioned Colossal Media to create a design to promote the second season of Face Off, its special-effects makeup reality competition series. The wall features show host McKenzie Westmore's face, which will slowly morph into a bird's over the course of six phases, ultimately finishing Jan. 11 in time for the show's premiere on Wednesday at 10 p.m. ET. If you can't make it to NYC, you can view photos and a full time-lapsed video of the evolution on Face Off's Facebook page.
