Tuesday, August 13, 2013: <i>Face Off</i> and <i>Heroes of Cosplay</i>

Now, before you get excited that Syfy will be re-airing the insane John Travolta/Nicolas Cage caper from 1997 called Face/Off in which they quite literally swap faces, you should keep in mind they have a television show of the same name (no slash in the title, either) and also that the movie is insane.

That said, if the eight talented new and – twist! -- eight returning contestants of Face Off needed to make face masks for Travolta or Cage or anyone/thing else, they'd be up to the task. Now entering its fifth season, Face Off is a reality series that challenges aspiring prosthetic makeup artists to make some amazing, sometimes terrifying, but always downright creative looks. In the Season 5 premiere, newcomers will be challenged to create costume party looks for the people on Heroes of Cosplay.

Coincidentally enough, Heroes of Cosplay is a brand new Syfy series that will immediately follow Face Off! (Cross-promotion, swapping faces, pretty close.) The docu-series chronicles the lives of the super fans that make the world of Comic Con (and the like) go 'round with their encyclopedic knowledge of all things geeky and their equally impressive garb. The premiere episode will follow a group of cosplay enthusiasts on their venture to Wizard World in Portland, dressed to the nines with their new look from the folks at Face Off.

Face Off will air at 9 PM on Syfy, with Heroes of Cosplay following directly at 10:30 PM. Debbie Allen will be the guest judge for the Top 10 over on So You Think You Can Dance at 8 PM on Fox, the Amish Mafia return for Season 2 at 9 PM on Discovery and all the Catfishers and the Catfishees will come face-to-face again on MTV at 10 PM for a Catfish mid-season reunion special.
