I can't find more pictures of my really old cosplays (which is just as well, hahah) from the time I didn't want to use makeup apart from these:
I cosplayed as Haku from Naruto. I don't remember wearing any makeup for this.

forever drowining us
people are foolish

good and bad
we are different
yet the same
no one can truely see
what we see
they will never understand
there might be others like us
