Cosplay & Unique Fashion

gabriel_true
I'm trying to get better with my costumes. This is probably the most I have invested into clothes. I am aware I could benefit from some makeup for certain characters as I do have a pronounced tan. That being the case I'm not experienced in cosmetics or the application of such. If anyone wants to post here their thoughts feel free. This forum is open to others who want to show off theirs too. Another purpose for this thread is displaying original fashion or any clothes one thinks is rather cool. Thanks for viewing!

I was sweating bullets even with my A/C on blast in the dead of summer. Wearing no less than 5 layers of clothing too. Was best I didn't have any makeup on or it'd definitely ran, haha! https://i.ani.me/0337/8490/img_20220904_003152587.jpg https://i.ani.me/0337/8502/img_20220904_002201121.jpg Being ones own camera man is difficult. https://i.ani.me/0337/8510/img_20220904_002138501.jpg But we make do with what we have.

Had to forgo the contact lenses as they were so cheap they crumbled trying to put them in. It's whatever. The wig was the important part and I feel it was better than my original. At least the lines went all the way front to back unlike the last one that only shown from the rear. https://i.ani.me/0338/1524/img_20220908_224137473.jpg https://i.ani.me/0338/1532/img_20220908_223651538.jpg https://i.ani.me/0338/1528/img_20220908_224255240.jpg https://i.ani.me/0338/1536/img_20220908_230004490.jpg MORTAL SIN STANCE! https://i.ani.me/0338/1548/img_20220908_231333823.jpg https://i.ani.me/0338/1544/img_20220908_232526691.jpg So you're still standing?

I learned something new. It's illegal in the United States to purchase or sell decorative contact lenses unless approved by a licensed eye doctor. All lenses require a prescription or it violates federal law in relation to distribution of a medical device.

@gabriel_true A few years ago when looking for contacts for my Gumi Matryoshka cosplay, I found that out too and I think it makes a lot of sense. There is a lot that can go wrong with contacts. Improper cleaning, storage, and especially improper eye measurements can cause serious damage or infection in the eyes and lead to being blinded! I don't remember the exact specifics, but these are generally the reasons why this is the case. Hope my eye insurance covers both new frames and contacts

Has anyone ordered clothing through EZCosplay? I see they have a version of Undertaker's outfit from Book of Atlantic. If it looks as shown I wouldn't mind owning it. @projectotakux

I ordered from EZCosplay some years ago. My costume looked similar to the image shown but was a little long on me and had to be hemmed.
gabriel_true
@sakurakiss Thanks! I have measurements so I hope that would help better inform their sizing if they custom make each outfit. Reading their page they suggested as much. Some of the prototypes appear hit or miss, but hopefully the images are of what they can ACTUALLY MAKE vs the old Amazon "just for reference" photos. https://i.ani.me/0338/3940/screenshot_20220912-185321-651.png Have you held onto your old cosplay? I kept mine over the years because sometimes I like to reuse outfits for other stuff.

Learning how to highlight and contour is probably the first step you should make regarding makeup. It's part of the foundation process, so if you are saying you're tan and you're wanting a lighter skin tone [Death the Kid], watch drag queens beginner tutorials on how they beat their mug. They typically also give tips on how to prep your skin (because makeup soaks up all the moisture and natural oils from your face), how to keep your makeup from caking or creasing, and how to finish it so that it lasts through sweat and not so terrible weather.
