Yeah, well I'm hoping to cosplay him at Reactor '04, though I'm not exactly sure how to do Mana's eyes. @_@ I need tips, anyone got any?

Yeah, I've seen that site before, but it doesn't really give tips for people who're white trying to cosplay Mana. @_@;; *tried the tips on that site, but it didn't look quite right*

You could always take the techniques they show on the site and tweek them to fit Caucasian eyes. I usually do it with a Diru style though which mostly consists of eyeliner or filling in eyeshadow around my eyes. I update myself with their style so I don't use lipstick as often but I sometimes use lipbalm or just powder over my lips to make them look pale with foundation.

I never really found use for the Mana style to be honest but I might when I go Gothic Lolita for Halloween ^^' Sorry I can't help much. Just stare in the mirror and pratice until you get it right..That's what I usually do @.@

Well I'm pale so foundation isn't that much of a problem except to hide blemishes and what not..Though I wasted enough eyeliner..just experimenting with it one time XD. Eyeshadow is easy though. Honestly, piece of rice cake ^.-

Well, looks like I'll be having fun with the eyeliner then. @_@ Ah well. Who knows... If I do a good job I might wear Mana's makeup all the time. XD LoL.

LoL. I'm quite sure my folks won't like it either. 'specially since I don't really wear makeup. XD Mom'll freak when she sees me with it on. LoL. And thanks!

actually, if you are doing beast of blood Mana there isn't really all that much to it besides getting good solid reference pictures and practice and practice and practice....I'm still in the "I'm trying my best" phase...but being asian, I suppose I have an advantage ^_^ with the flat on the face eyes.
