@ Final Evangelion: Sounds good to me. With all the work I am putting into these FF6 costumes, I don't think I will be retiring them any time soon. :P

As for the makeup, I don't know a lot, but for my Puppet Zelda I used a color cake foundation from Ben Nye. You obviously don't have to go THAT washed out, but you could probably get a light skin tone color and just use that. All you would need would be a makeup sponge, some water, and some final seal spray so it doesn't run throughout the day.

@Lady: Flip a coin? lol

@Final: I second the Ben Nye. They're pretty easy to mix and match to make your own blend to get a more pale look. I get to fiddle with a blue/white/black combo this week. Yippie. >.>

So I have 012. All I can say is that Kain is an asshole. And I mean that in the nicest way possible. >.> Oh! And the arena from FFXI is just awesome. That is all. lol

@tifaia and seifer - thanks for the makeup suggestions. I'll have to experiment with that.

@muramasa - thanks. I just got 1 week old pics today and he's starting to look more like a dog and less like a rat, lol.

@all that got D012 - are you doing RPG mode or action mode? I tried RPG mode but didn't care for it too much. I had to wait a couple hours after I got the game for it to charge so there is enough battery power to do the updates. PSP and its update annoyances...

@Final: Ben Nye's a good brand, but it kind of depends on how much coverage you want and what you're comfortable wearing. I tend to use Mac Chromacakes for when I need to change skin color. I use the green for when I do Elphaba (from Wicked) and it's really easy. All you do is add water, and paint it on. The more water you add, the thinner and lighter the coat. It takes a bit of experimentation, but it has LOTS of colors and doesn't rub off very badly as long as you use powder to seal it.

@Final: I'm not a fan of the RPG mode and have been sticking with action. I get it for those that aren't use to fighters, but growing up with Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter, I see action, I need action! And I know what you mean about the PSP. It occurred to me on Monday that I should update the system. Good thing. Data install for 012 took almost an hour. Though it was good background music (FF6) while I was working on my Sith cloak. >.>

@Seifer: I know what you mean. I'm cramming to get my next one done. 1 week left until travel. >_< But this costume has a lot, and I mean A LOT, of hand painting so I've been able to play 012 between sections of painting/drying.

CoD got a floaty hair boost in 012. Makes me wonder if I should add a few more strands. They also added some strips of white to the back and front. Though probably won't update it. I like the Amano look before they made her green.

@ Tifaia: I will have to hand paint the cape when i build up the courage to dye the darn thing. So I feel your pain. I wish you lots of luck and for time to slow down for you so you can get everything you want done! Also, I like you wig the way it is.... but I know that if it were important enough to me to change it, I would be bugged by it until I did. So it's all up to you.

@ Terra~Esper: Aww no worries. I am poor too. I just spent my entire check buying the rest of the fabric I needed for Terra and Edgar. No Dissidia for me for a while. ^^; I hope you get your job though!

@Terra - thanks for the suggestions on the makeup. Time to do some experimenting. Next couple months, money is going to be tight with having the cons come up and the initial veterinary / vaccination expenses for the dog. Dissidia will probably be my last game I get for a while. But that's fine because I still have some I need to still finish.

It took me SO MANY TRIES just to beat him in the first story mode with Lighting. I raged so many times and cursed him out. |3

-grins- I think my husband is trying to bribe me or butter me up for something. He just bought me 012 today. ^.^ Playing story mode and missing Terra's fighting style completely. ;_;
