Do you know what you'll be wearing? What's your experience level with makeup? Budget?

For Raichu I'll have a orange sundress (wit tails, ears, paws, etc) and possibly either my regular hair (chin length blonde) or a short orange wig. For Jolteon it will be my blonde hair and a yellow sundress (with ears, neck spikes,etc) as for Make-up experience is pretty good, I've been involved with my town/schools theater department for a few years so i know it pretty well. And i dont really have a budget.

So, probably more girly makeup? I would probably go for fun eye shadows and feminine lashes, leaving the rest of the makeup fairly neutral. Or in lieu of the shadows, mix pigment with a sealing gel and create a vibrant liquid eye liner and use that around the eyes.

Personally, I get a lot of inspiration from MV's, print ads, runway shows, and YouTube. Keeping in mind that I can use the same techniques with different colors and create new looks. Sorry to be so vague...I can link some images of what I'm talking about if you want me to.

I dunno how intense and costume-y you want your makeup to be, but you might turn a lot more heads if you use some alternative make-up techniques rather than every-day typical magazine mage-up techniques. This website here has extensive tutorials on alternative make-up styles and a gallery of pictures submitted by users. You might be able to draw some inspiration from this. The sunburn eyeshadow one might be good since you're doing electric pokemon.
