    Each transformation can take hours of makeup, lighting, and set up, which Banerjee manages with the help of her sister, Poorna.

    "I do it for people who feel that our 'looks' are 'limited'. I want it to be a message for all, that it isn't a limited universe, we can be whoever we want to be," Banerjee told BuzzFeed.

    "It's just like wearing different clothes, talking in a different tone, and changing our hairstyle can turn us into a different person. I work as an illustrator for that reason – to live in a world without limits, and where I can be myself," she added.
