Close-up

Close-up - Naruto - Orochimaru
A close-up shot I took of myself on the third day of AX 2006 (thanks to the LED panel on my new digicam that flips backwards). I wanted to get a good shot of my makeup, since I was all proud of the fact that I finally got the hang of doing it entirely by myself without needing any help. And I did it 3 times too! (...It just takes about 2-3 hours to do.)

Eyeliner is a rat bastard. I don't know how girls put up with it.

Anyway, I do admit to some very slight/minor Photoshop touch-up here. Because the weather in Anaheim was so incredibly hot/humid/miserable, my lips kept drying out regardless of how much lip balm I used, which caused the makeup there to thin out FAR more easily/quickly than it normally does. When I took this photo there was a tad bit too much pink leaking through for my taste, so I used a blend layer to wash my lips out a little. (The difference really isn't all that major though.)

Tranquility6487: Thank you! And you actually read my mind, since the end of AX I've been thinking about trying white lipstick the next time I cosplay the character. (I mean, there's all those commercials on TV about lipstick that "keeps lips moist and healthy" and stuff, and I think it's meant to not come off...) Anyway, I know it DOES exist since I've seen it on goths, ravers, and ganguro, I just have to make sure it's not shiny/glittery/glow-in-the-dark.

Cool close-up..you are my favorite Orochimaru I feel your pain about the makeup, whenever I cosplay as him, my face likes to melt off in the Florida heat. Maybe white lipstick would work better for lips? If there is such a thing. ::shrugs::

Whoa nicely done there bishounen. 2 to 3 hours for the makeup? Then I must give you credit for the time and effort you place into your character.
This snapshot of you reminds me of the one that was taken at ALA.
