Harry Potter: Incredible timelapse video shows makeup artists turning man into goblin

An incredible timelapse video shows a man being completely transformed into a goblin as part of the launch of the new wizarding bank at the Harry Potter studio tour.

The metamorphosis, which took five hours to complete, involved using a bald cap and several layers of makeup before attaching two different prosthetic masks.

The first, which was placed on the back of the head, comes with gigantic goblin ears, and the second, used to cover his face, has a large nose and upturned eyebrows.

After the masks were attached, a wig was also transfixed to the man’s head, before lenses, teeth and the costume were put on.

The prosthetics used took weeks to create, with every hair individually inserted and the veins painstakingly painted on by hand.

Warner Bros transformed the man as part of the launch of studio tour expansion, which will now include Gringotts bank, which featured in the films.

Gringotts, in Diagon Alley, is where Harry first learns of the fortune left to him by his parents Lily and James.

In later films, Hermoine, Harry and Ron break into the Lestrange’s vault in order to retrieve one of Lord Voldemort’s horcruxes – Helga Hufflepuff’s cup.

Although there won’t be any goblins wandering the halls, visitors will have the opportunity to examine prosthetics and wigs used by the goblin bankers.

It took four hours to transform Warwick Davis, who played Griphook in the films, into a goblin.

Lestrange’s vault will also contain other treasures used in the seven movies, based on the book series by J.K. Rowling.

The expansion will officially open at Warner Bros Studio Tour London on April 6.
