Russell Brand TF
The following transformation guide is to be used as a last resort or as a fear coping method, and of course it is mostly from the perspective of my character, it is not to be taken seriously as this is not a new ‘persona’ change so to speak, he is still Chris and Chris is part of the ‘Walken’ storyline, this storyline is different and separate from the others as it is its own entity with a different theme which incorporates elements from mythology and folklore as well as various takes on shapeshifting. And is also a Beauty And The Beast tale. Please remember that none of this is by any means real and all in good fun. So without further ado, enjoy this little tale.
Hello once again fellow Monster maniacs, i’m your host Monstermaster13 with a very exclusive new episode of Transformation Guides - featuring a transformation that is only to be used as a last resort or fear coping method but it invokes an entirely different theme than the others as it uses mythology and folklore as well as fairytales as influences. The fairytale in particular being Beauty And The Beast. Speaking of beast, I believe you already know of our special ‘friend’ Russell Brand, of course you do. This man is practically everywhere and may in fact be proof of monsters existing in modern society. Russell will be the ‘Beast’ my character turns into in this mini-spin-off, don’t worry this is an easily reversible transformation but because of the fairytale theme, there will be a twist to it.
The tale of Beauty And The Beast is one that has been told many times and adapted just as many times as well, both in animation and live action. As well as paid homage to many times in commercials, music videos, comics, cartoons, movies and video games. So, grab yourself a chair and sit yourself down, be prepared for a true Beast of a tale with my Russell transformation guide.
Prologue: Once Upon A Time
Since this has a fairytale theme to it, our little transformation guide will start off like most traditional fairytales hence the title of this stage is the classic ‘once upon a time’ opening line that fairytales have. The lead character of this little tale is portrayed by me - and he is a young man cursed to become Russell until he can find someone to love and have them love him in return. It begins with me in the role of the titular young man in a modern day fairytale setting, living within a fine castle. Like in the Disney version, he will receive a knock at the door from a strange woman, but rather than turning her down because of how she looks - he will simply say that there’s no room - which of course is where she becomes the enchantress and puts the curse on him. When this prologue is done we’ll start with the transformation scene itself.
Stage 1: The Russell Brand Attitude.
This is the official first part of the process and this is where I get a change in mindset and personality, which is to say I develop Russell’s personality traits and intelligence as well as a bit of his mindset, of course not completely but it is present throughout the process and helps me get in character. Russell is a very peculiar specimen in terms of personality traits and is very complex.
To aid with how Russell’s body language works i’ve used a bit of animal inspiration from the following animals, male peacock (the term ‘strut like a peacock’), canines specifically wolves and similar wild dogs, and domesticated dogs (For the playful and affectionate side of Russell), felines especially domesticated cats (body language and flexibility) and to a lesser extent owls, vultures and ravens (the ‘perching’ pose)
Once in Russell’s mindset the physical half of the transformation will take place in the next stage, which is of course stage 2.
Stage 2: Something Hairy’s Going On.
Brace yourself for this part dear reader, for this second part of the process is going to get pretty hairy, literally. As this is the part where I actually shift into Russell, starting with a slight increase in body hair - Russell style body hair is more or less on the same level as a werewolf but not completely into werewolf territory, and the hair itself changes color from its normal color to jet black. It spreads on the chest, torso, arms and legs with patches of black ‘fur’ on the hands and also on the boots as mentioned below.
In the process my clothing peels away and reshapes into the signature black leather outfit Russell is most commonly seen wearing in photos, including the boots - a little bit of Russell’s mindset kicks in but not as to overpower me.
Once this part is done, we’ll move onto stage 3.
Stage 3: Lean, Wild and Hairy
The third part of the process is where I basically grow in height to about 6’2 (Russell’s height), develop Russell’s skintone and also slim down to become more lithe - starting with the arms and legs extending to become longer and thinner.
In the process, various Russell specific accessories materialize on my outfit. I should mention though that even though Russell’s personality traits and mannerisms are still developing at this point, I am still mostly me - just with Russell’s mindset and such - which shouldn’t be much of a problem.
At this point I pretty much have the mindset, personality, skintone, outfit, height and build of Russell himself except there’s a few modifications which I will discuss in the part that’s coming up, so stay tuned for stage 4 which is where I will bring these modifications up.
Stage 4: Truly Savage Style
This is the fourth part of the transformation and this is where I bring up the modifications, first of all even though I am becoming exactly like Russell due to the afforementioned changes from earlier including the mindshift, I will essentially be a more tame and less...well...savage version of him in terms of my mentality and instincts, but I will develop heightened senses and inhuman agility and animal-like reflexes - but this part of it is a superpowered bonus needed for combating the real Russell in my nightmares.
My hair grows longer and messier before turning jet black and taking on Russell’s signature style, my neckline becoming longer and thinner as Russell’s ‘sanskrit’ tattoo appears on my arm as well as a few markings. My eyebrows change next as they thicken and turn black, arching a little to give me a slightly dangerous edge.
Other modifications that may come with this include fingernails that can become retractable claws, a headpiece with wolf-like ears and a slightly lupine tail, emphasizing the more lupine aspects of Russell’s appearance. The ears perk up if I am excited or happy, tense up if i’m angered and droop if i’m upset, and the tail moves and wags like a real wolf’s tail does.
When this part concludes I now possess Russell’s hair and eyebrows in addition to his frame, outfit, height, mindset and personality - and once this part is done we’ll be moving onto stage 5.
Stage 5: Two Russells Are Worse Than One.
This part of the process is where it will become near impossible to recognize me once this next set of changes happens, this is basically where my facial appearance shifts to resemble Russell’s. Which means I will be looking exactly like him.
It starts with my forehead becoming slightly more pronounced, my eyes becoming slightly wider and turning a darker shade of brown, my nose narrowing, my facial structure becoming more triangular, my cheekbones become sharper and more pronounced, dark eyeliner lightly gets applied around my eyes, my lips reshaping a bit and my whole face slowly morphing and reshaping until it looks exactly like Russell’s.
The morph also has variations, one is the regular facial haired Russell variant in which Russell’s slightly visible trademark facial hair grows on my face and the other is the clean-shaven Arthur variant in which I take on the look of Russell’s version of the Dudley Moore character Arthur Bach. Of course like I mentioned there are a few modifications for this, mainly the fact that I have my canine teeth extending to become like fangs.
Once this part of the transformation is complete, we’ll move onto the final stage of the transformation which is where it will come to completion, so watch closely.
Final Stage: Revolution In Ponderland
Here’s where you won’t be able to tell me apart from the real Russell, as you’ll find that this point i’ll start to speak like him, gradually developing his voice and signature Essex orientated British accent - so you’ll probably have trouble trying to see if it is me in there, at this point the physical process is completed and I am fully Russell in appearance except with a few alterations, mainly the wolf-like ears on the wearable headpiece, claws, fangs and a wolf-like tail, or on occasion raven or ‘Maleficent’ styled wings that are coated in black feathers for flying. And the other minor difference being my eyes will glow and turn yellow and wolf-like if i’m angered or under stress, which is a nod to Big Wolf On Campus (specifically Tommy wolfing out).
At this point the mental half of the transformation reaches a climax, but I still retaining a few of my old former quirks despite being Russell mentally and physically, as I am a much tamer less insane version of him which means i’m not as well...naughty, in otherwords I am basically more human than the real Russell when i’m like this. Because much like the Phantom Of The Opera, Quasimodo, Frankenstein or the Beast...I am a more human monster in terms of my overall nature.
Once this part is completed the process is done and the new alternate Russell has fully emerged, this form is to be used as either a last-resort or emergency transformation in case none of my other forms are strong enough to take on the real Russell.
With all that said….I am now almost indistinguishable from the real Russell and my transformation is complete both physically and mentally, but remember it’s still me in there - and i’m the one with the wolf-like ears, glowing eyes, wings, fangs and claws.
So what happens to our hero after this? Find out in the epilogue.
Epilogue: Hopefully Happily Ever After.
You’ll be glad to know that the story will end happily for me even though i’m fully Russell both mentally and physically, after all - all it requires to be turned back to normal is to find someone who will love me and learn to love them so that they will grow to love me in return, you’ll also be glad to know it is reversible and I can morph back to normal if I wish too, it will most likely wear off by morning and I will revert to being normal Nathan/Chris then. So i’m not stuck as Russell forever.
Originally I planned on this process being a lot scarier but I went with the fairytale and mythology theme, in particular Beauty And The Beast because I’m fond of the ‘Misunderstood Monster’ trope when it comes to my monstrous creations. My variation of Russell or me as Russell is influenced by this trope as well as Beast And Beauty. Because I feel that since Russell is a rather beastly guy...why not go with a rather beastly fairytale to match?
I’m Monstermaster13 and this has been my long-planned Russell Brand themed special edition of transformation guides. I hope that this will be useful to you should Russell manifest in my nightmares once again. Now if you excuse me, i’m going to perch like an owl/raven/crow and keep watch for anything Russelly.
