Hey guys

Just a quick question, and I don't feel the need for a new topic. I want to cosplay Yoruichi, but I'm quite pale. Should I use make-up to alter my skin-tone, or is this considered to be 'not-done'?

I know I shouldn't care what others have to say about my choice and style of cosplay, but it's still something I'm struggling with. Both options seem to have a group of people that's negative about it (one half doesn't like it when you stick with your own skin-tone, the other half doesn't like it when you try to portray the character's skin-tone).

It's not exactly an easy topic to search on (or it's just because I'm horrible at using search-functions, that's another possibility )

Sorry if it's a sensitive topic, by the way!

It's more or less up to you if you want to, but personally I wouldn't. I think it shouldn't matter what your skin tone is as it is one of those factors you can't control like height and such.

Personally I don't think it matters what skin tone you are but if your willing to go that extra mile use dark tone makeup foundations and a makeup sealer. Be sure to cover every spot on your face including eyelids and behind ears. I would not do the backless version of yoruichi as that's a lot of work to color the back and sides. Good luck

Thanks for your opinions and tips!

Because of this issue I had decided against that outfit, haha! I don't like it very much, and it'd snatch away another hour of the precious rest one needs at a con, haha! I'm going for the outfit she's seen in first. Only exposed skin would be my face/neck, hands and feet.

Then it should be easy don't forget the makeup sealer as it helps by keeping the makeup in place even when you sweat or rub up against something.

as;lfdkja. Target, I love you. Tony Stark wears this stupid matte grey watch for like 3 scenes in Avengers. So I have to either make or find something like it. Target had nearly the EXACT thing for $12. The strap is plastic but with the metal band pattern, and my wrists are so freaky tiny that I'd have to do some serious modification to ANY metal band that I bought.

I really should stop looking at the cosplayers who have done the same artbook Saber I'm working on right now. It's making me feel so bad about mine although I am going more accurate to the art but still...

Ugh damn it! My interest in obscure characters has once again screwed me over! I gotta admit I love these characters to death and they genuinely are my favorites. They have such fascinating backgrounds and the parts that appeal me most is that most of them don't even have super powers. They're normal people doing incredible things using only their minds and wits to fight crime and stop bad people. Yet this doesn't change the fact they're not exactly main stream and when events get listed and they need people they usually want characters that are recognizable and are main stream right now but my guys aren't up there. Hell I'm lucky if anybody even knows who they are. Ugh...it's just frustrating. I want to go out to these events and yes hang out with my friends and have fun but at the same time I also want to help out and give back to the community too like what my group does. Oh well...

I just figured out that it is very depressing to make an excel sheet with the estimates of your spending on materials for a cosplay.

I am itching to cosplay at my University but with no Anime Club, walking around with a pink wig would probably scare a lot of people off.

Luckily, I'm getting an Anime club going! College cosplayers unite!

Does anyone have any idea what this is made from?



I keep thinking it's insulation foam, but I'm not sure...
