Test photo - Kingdom Hearts Re:CoM - Vexen
Testing out my wig and full makeup...I still need to get my eyebrows just right. I think I need to lighten AROUND them a bit and, though I can't afford it for this con, get them actually shaped a little. Though, the shadow around my chin makes my face actually look narrower :P. . Heh, with those two pieces of hair half in my face, contouring is almost a moot point. XD
(Also, I found out recently that someone turned this picture into an insulting motivational. Without even the photoshop skills to use the proper motivational text. What the hell their problem was I have no idea, and I hope they die a painful, terrible death while realizing I'm a better cosplayer than they could ever aspire to be.)

Looking good! Vexen's makeup is an EVIL thing, omfg. DX My new wig failed (it was defective and I didn't have time to send it back before the convention, so I need to do it when I return from AB), so I'm trying to restyle the old failarious one. I also have to finish Xigbar's wig, my shield, the travel box, pack, and take a German exam ALL BEFORE NOON AUUUUGH.

Just a note, you're going to want to pull the wig back up on your forehead, and sweep the front portions back rather than to the sides. Also, Vexen's 'bangs' don't pull forward from so close to his forehead. ^^ (Anyone who says 'LOL his wig is easy' is just doing it wrong, I'm convinced). Also, some shading on the sides of your nose. I have a wider nose and it's a nightmare trying to contour it. -_-

I'm actually considering bleaching my eyebrows, since the hair mascara does not work as well as it should - though I'm worried I might take them too far, LOL. Either way they'll look weird with my red hair.

My big issue is not having had time to modify the hairline on my wig, so it still looks unnatural and icky (and doesn't like to cover my temples).

Lol, tell me about it. I still don't think I look any good. That was the best photo outta the thirty or so I took XP. Ah well, Anime North (for me) is the day after tomorrow. I'll have to just do the best I can. And thanks for the nose idea; I think I forgot to do it in this shot, or didn't do it right.
And yeah, I actually decided to modify the wig style a bit, because my forehead is FAILtastic when I wear bangless wigs (widow's peak, narrow temples and a high forehead. BLARGH), and I'm still pretty new at styling so I didn't think I could pull off sweeping the front portions back. I do need to move those front pieces to the side more, I'm doing that tonight. Thanks for the critique. ^_^
