In the early stages of season 8 of "Face Off," we predicted that St. Louis Park native Darla Edin could be a real contender.
Turns out it wasn't just hometown pride influencing our judgement.
Darla, 28, won the battle of prosthetic makeup artists with her fantasy-related design of four superheroes who must take on the evil that rises after Adam and Eve are banished from the Garden of Eden.
Judges praised her Avengers-like team, particularly a wind creature that doubles as a woodwind instrument. (Are you paying attention, Marvel Comics?)
Edin will receive a new car and $100,000, plus other prizes.
Don't think the 28-year-old artist has gone completely Hollywood. She freelances in Minneapolis and recently worked on the local indie film, "Solitude," which won an Audience Choice Award at the 2014 Twin Cities Film Festival.
