Thanks! Yup it is, though it's pretty much a nub right now. I adore that thing, so creamy and pigmented!
Unfortunately I smashed mine and had to scrape the product out and keep it in a contact lens case. It's sold out on the NYX site, and the two nearest Ulta's, so I ordered it on Amazon, and until then I'm applying it with a brush. It stinks cause when I cosplay I like to put it on my waterline because it makes my eyes look bigger.

So my non-cosplaying boyfriend told me today that he might be willing to cosplay Sweeney Todd with me to Tekkoshocon this year. The only problem is the /might/ and Tekko is two and a half months away and I really need to get on that if he wants to do it.

Maybe I'll just do Mrs. Lovett regardless and I can throw something together for him last minute if he ever decides.

Creamy and pigmented sounds amazing.

Brainstorming with my friend, trying to match wigs and figure out my headpiece and skirt and new wings, for altering my faerie costume in my avatar.
I'm thinking of changing the straps, too, except to what?!

It's a jumbo eye pencil in Milk by NYX.

The thing is incredible, I use it as a base for my eyeshadow, and on my waterline.

A base for your eyeshadow, too? :O
So you use that instead of like an eyeshadow primer then?

I usually use foundation over my eyelids first to get rid of all the icky veins, so I guess that is my 'base'. But I use the jumbo eye pencil if I want colors to show up really nicely....I'd say I use it as a base too, it's just like my second base xD

Oh gosh that's confusing...

Then I feel smart for understanding that. That's actually a really good idea! I should try that sometime. And I did need a new white eyeliner...mine always are absolutely terrible. D:<

Ended up saying screw it and spray painted in my basement. I love the metalic color I got for Rin's sword sheath. It's so shiny and blue. *_*. The blade is done too, I just need to throw a layer of modge podge over it and then details! For Minako's naginata I only finished spray painting one side of the staff part before I had to go out to Michael's and hang out with friends. The good news is I got everything else I needed for Rin's sword and got some paint pens so I can draw the details on Gakuko's fan.

And tomorrow-err today is a trip to Jo-Anns which means Gakuko will finally be done soon.

Coming up with so many ways to tackle the hugeee hands Strength from Black Rock Shooter carries. I've been sketching, drawing, and constantly searching Google for tons of reference pics. @__@

You know what I always wondered? Why does she wear pink bows on her pink hair?
Yeah it's a different shade of pink but...It just seems really clashy to me.
Also, I like the petticoat under your Madoka - super fluffy is the best fluffy~ Most people I've seen have their petticoat kind of...'blah' looking.

Just commissioned my 'jacket/ shirt thing' for Ed.
I wonder what that's really called

Working on this spur of a moment Jane Crocker God Tier costume some more. Not looking forward to making this skirt pattern. It's the last thing I really have to do, but gosh. I just hate making up patterns.
