Miss Martian WIP

Reference: http://www.badrobotninja.com/wp-cont...ss-martian.jpg



What I'd mainly like opinions on is the colour of the makeup? I stressed out about that for a really, really long time. I know my lenses are blue, not orange, but I don't have my actual lenses yet.

Also, I didn't make the costume, so I didn't really want to alter it, but do you guys see anything that needs to be altered? (Ignore the black dot on my chest. That's velcro that my cape is supposed to stick to.)

(No one slam me for the pose? It's taken in the bathroom because that's the only place in my house with decent lighting.)

According to your reference picture, you are kinda lighter on the green and the lipstick but I like your shade of green more in my opinion. =)

I'm sort of scared of the original shade of green that she is, lol. I see a lot of cosplayers do it, and it doesn't look bad, but my face is surprisingly angular and so it makes a lot of weird shadows on a darker green -.-"

Disclaimer: I am in no way, shape, or form, a make up expert, and make up is very much out of my comfort zone.

The green is lighter than the reference, but then again, so is the hair color. I find that when one color changes, often other colors will have to be altered to accommodate (and personally I think it's also important to choose colors that compliment the cosplayer).

That being said, I think the lipstick is still too light despite all the other palate changes.

So, darker lipstick is the general consensus, I think, lol. Thanks for the tip! (And looking back on it, yeah, it is a bit light.)

It's good you know what shade would work for your body. I definitely say go for what you think will work for you and you are more comfortable with.
