It has begun! I never usually do elaborate cosplays, but ever since I got my business cards (pictured below), I realized that no one was going to see them if I don’t actually go out and make myself known.
Being stubborn as I am, I sometimes have to trick myself into doing things or force myself into them. This year I’m forcing myself to purchase tickets to the upcoming Emerald City Comic Con, as well as forcing myself to cosplay as Scorpius and hand out business cards.
So far my makeup test is using these products:
Ben Nye Creme Colors – Sky Blue CL-22: base color for the face
Colourpop Matte X Lippie Stix (Climax): upper lip
Morphe Electric Blue (Matte) ES35 – Aquatic Earth: contour
Morphe Translucent Ultra Fine Setting Powder: setting
AMC Eyeliner Gel 77: black around the eyes and nose
Black Foam: eyebrows and goatee
Duo Brush On Striplash Adhesive White/Clear: attaching foam
Drag queen Vander Von Odd’s tutorial for her blue ghoul look was especially helpful in recommending products and showing how to use them.
I’ll be back with photos of the horns, ears, and wig!
