Oh and the scar, yeah that was a challenge! I actually used my partners hair wax to get a sort of raised texture. Then I dabbed on some deep red/burgundy lip gloss and sealed it and blended it in with pressed powder. I practised it quite a few times before so I figured out what worked and what didn't. I'm not so great with make-up so it was a good learning experience :-)
I bought the whole cosplay online, but I had to alter it quite a bit. I also tried strapping my chest for the first time, so i had it a bit open, but I think in some shots my figure looks too feminine still...
I bought a decent quality wig (for once) and also a replica sword, since I didn't wear it for a con, but just for photos. It was challenging trying to come up with 'manly' poses haha.
I think I started Gilgamesh a few years ago but dropped it after the 1st few eps...
This season I've really enjoyed 'Orange'. I look forward to watching the final few eps on my day off tomorrow!
I'm re-watching Death Note too, forgot how damn good that series is!!
I'd like to to go to SMASH one day, it looks like fun! It's funny that you mentioned you did a Kenshin cosplay, because I literally just did a photo shoot of my Himura cosplay yesterday! He's such a great character, and I loved the Live-action films that came out recently. It was my first time doing a male character too, so that was interesting!
I have made some of mine from scratch. It tends to be more expensive and also time consuming. I usually get my mum to help because she's much better at sewing. Butt he final result is always so satisfying!
But Kenshin will be my last cosplay this year (probably) because of the trying to save thing...
So what anime have you really enjoyed lately?
Yeah it's not bad here. We have 3 cons a year: Comiccon, Supanova and my fave, Avcon. I usually go to all 3 but giving Supanova a miss this year because I'm saving for a trip to Japan.
I live pretty close to McLaren Vale, you may have heard of it.
What about you? Do you go to many cons?
Oooh some decent wine there! I'm in South Australia, not far from Adelaide :-)
Hello there!! Which state do you live in?
been a while how are things?
How is life for you? please tell me you are still with us.
Ahaha, well that's too bad, although granted there's nothing much to do here
And erm, when is Supanova? I went to Smash last September (?) and it was pretty amazing. Smaller than I expected, but still pretty damn good!
