So I finished Final Fantasy XV recently, and to put it lightly — I have a lot of feelings, ahaha! Flawed as it may be (I wish they were given another 6 months to refine it) I still loved it, and its shortcomings didn't keep me from weeping over their beautiful brotherhood.
After 100+ hours of gameplay and staring at the bros, I wanted to make certain improvements to my Noctis cosplay. For this photo in particular, I was working on my character makeup for Noct. I actually finished this cosplay back in October and have worn it to a few conventions since then, but I keep thinking I could do more with the makeup.
The changes I've made are subtle (compared to my older photos that some of you might have seen on my Facebook page
) but I can tell the difference, and that matters to me.
Here are some of the things I've done differently:
🔹 I'm conquering some minor fears and learning to add false lashes and mascara to my arsenal 😂 I used to find these things daunting, but I found that for the definition and dimension I wanted to do for Noct, my usual eyeliner and eyeshadow tricks by themselves wouldn't cut it.
🔹 I kept noticing Noct's lip color and how it was pale with a greyish undertone. I found that interesting in contrast with Prompto, Ignis, and Gladio who all have a pretty healthy flush to their complexions and lip colors.
🔹 Trimmed my eyebrows so that I could get the angle and shape more similar to Noct's brows.
🔹 Changed my contact lenses to the Ice Grey Cosplay Lenses from aliceandrabbitshop.com
🔹 Found the right eyeshadow color to do the shading around the eyes. I've been switching stuff around every time I wear Noct. I think I'll stick with this one!
🔹 Still practicing that nose contouring!
I trimmed my wig a bit more compared to the first time I wore it, but I feel like I keep having to cut more and more every time I wear it. You ever get the feeling your wig is growing? Hahah!Final Fantasy XV Jin
