It took four morning to five hours (six if it was also necessary to make your hands) to transform Ron Perlman into Vincent. The actor and his makeup artist were often the first arrived on the set in the morning, and the last ones to leave in the evening

The makeup started with the installation of three pieces in latex foam, one covering the middle of the face and the cheekbones, the other two on the browbosed arcades, fixed with an acrylic glue, because Ron was allergic to glues based on solvent . These parts were for single use, Rick Baker provided as much as necessary thanks to special molds. Then we went to painting, acrylic, also, on the whole face, of a relatively uniform shade, the reliefs of the face being already sufficient, more marked shadows would have given Vincent the too aggressive air. The "fur" was made of yack (!) Half hairs menu and glued in small tufts on the skin and latex. The same, longer hairs were used for the hands, but these were only made up in the event of a close-up on them, the rest of the Ron time wore special gloves. There were two wigs, in natural hair. One of them, despite Margaret's efforts, tended to curl very slightly, which is noticed in certain episodes. A third, disheveled and a little darker, served for the "Vincent Côté Dark", which required completely different makeup, with a darker shade and more marked shadows. The wig had to be securely fixed, because the hood, extremely heavy, tended to shoot it back.
