View Full Version : X-Men Cosplay (Toad)

Okay, I'm a really big fan of Toad
(more so the Movie and Evo version, but the comic vrsions always appealed to me)
and seeing the no one here has even posted or started to post an attempt at him makes me kinda sad. So here I am, gonna promote the Toad love at AWA 07.
The movie version is my plan, and I have no clue where to start. Make-up effects and contacts will be the big problems.

So, suggestions? Negative or Positive feedback on the pursuit? Side comments? I want it all. Anything you have to say about this costume is welcome.

Wow thats gonna be difficult.. Well I know that in X-men 1.5 the actor who plays as Toad actual spills the secrets of the make-up and contacts so look there for research. Oh! There was actually a topic about covering up eyes brows, but the coloration would look great for his skin, brb let me go find it!

bees beeswax lip balm, liquid latex, mousse foundation and powder.
the foundation is a bit to yellow for my skin, but other than that i think it really worked.

I think that would work perfect for the skin-turn. ^^

and his eyes...
Are his eyes completely black or just like normal eyes but the coloration is black? Do you need prescription contacts or non?

Wow, you are like...awsome! O.o so helpful. I'd need prescription. And His eyes are like very weird, I' have a place to get them from, but they're gonna be like $400 custom...It'll be a year or so before I caould even afford them. They're like....let me go get one of the pics I saw earlier


That's an official pic too. I never though his eyes had color (other than black)
*faints* so hard....It will be my ultimate project...and I thought Kisame would be hard. He's actually not.

Thanks for the reffs Gabriel, I really needed more.
