Excellent work on both makeup and clothing!  I'm thoroughly impressed!  Hope the eye makeup wasn't too bad -- I know getting stuff that close to your eyes can be quite bothersome.

Hair's not bad either.  But I particularly love the ear ^_^

I'd like to say that the attention to detail here is only trumped by your own befitting facial features.

And while the costume is great and all, there are two things that I have to point out specifically... things that most people ignore.

The face paint. You accentuated the shadows and highlights and varied the tonal color. This is the mark of a professional costume. Second, the hair.
Sure its obviously a wig, but more importantly, you didn't slap some cheap styling gel on it and call it done. I see individual wisps of hair, each separate, giving the authentic stringy-stiff look that the character actually is drawn with.
Also I can tell you paid attention to how hair actually flows and lays, rather than simply "making it pointy and lemon shaped."

You created a masterpiece of realistic hair styling out of an incredibly unrealistic looking anime hair, but not only that, you did it so well as to look like the character without looking ridiculous.

I commend you, and your friend in the other photos, for doing such a great job with these costumes.
You two have, on your own, redeemed the art of cosplay for the world. I will no longer immediately scoff when I hear the word, because of you and your Ameliated friend (not pictured in this photo)

Damn, impeccable makeup! What combo did you use for the blue base? Brand, any prep products, sealants? INQUIRING MINDS.

Hey!! Ummmm Ok from off the top of my head!

I prepped with lotion and smashbox primer then used MAC eyeshadow in Winkle all around my eyes like a blue racoon since my eyes hate facepaint.

Then tackled the main blue with Ben Nye Magicake Aqua Paint in Calypso Blue. I sealed it all with more of the Winkle and a lighter drug store brand blue eyeshadow for the contouring. Then I shaded with Mehron foundation greasepaint in Monster Grey.

Topped it off with some blue lipstick I found on ebay in the same shade, some cheap one I don't remember the brand of. Painted my nails light blue with nail polish then went over my fingers with the Ben Nye the same way. To finish I just sprayed it all with MAC fixer spray since I didn't have any other stronger stuff on hand. It mostly stayed though because of all the eyeshadow!

Then I just had to spirit gum all the latex rocks to my face (each grouping is one piece)and get my sis's help gluing the ears on which I'd painted beforehand with the same stuff.


Hope that was detailed enough for you!! <3
