[Cosplay twins Hopie & Hee-Hee]
We have very thin brows and they’re a lighter brown so they’ve always been easy to recolor, but consider these possible options!
1) cover your brows with gluestick and redraw the brows in the correct color and shape. There are LOADS of eyebrow covering tutorials out there, and we suggest looking at Youtube first! Drag queens usually use this method and many men have thicker brows, so consider that a testament that it can work well!
2) get some mascara primer for your brows. It’s basically like white mascara! Carefully brush it into your eyebrows, going backwards first, then in the correct direction (you may need an eyebrow brush to redirect the hair instead if using the wet mascara wand and making a mess). Once it’s dry and your brows are white, you can gently tap eyeshadow in the appropriate color over them! Seal with a finishing sealer spray or hairspray and you should be good to go!
Both options require a little practice to perfect, especially covering your brows, but neither are TOO hard, and we hope that at least one method can help you out! Thanks for the question!
For my facial hair pieces I either use crepe wool or kanekalon jumbo braid (these are unwefted hair extensions- the brand I like most is BlacknGold)! Both are lightweight and easy to work with!
Wow, thank you so much! The world needs more OCD villains!!
Take care and keep cosplayin’!
Thank you! :D We’ll certainly keep goin’ as long as we can, and hopefully improve and get better at the same time!
Well, firstly, dear Anon, that person certainly wasn’t a true friend. Unfortunately there will always be someone or something trying to plant seeds of doubt in your mind when it comes to this visual and vain hobby of ours, but it’s our job (though it shouldn’t have to be) to train ourselves to focus and linger on the positive aspects of cosplay for US. Those aspects could just be the fun we have when we’re in costume, or the friends we meet at conventions, the photos and videos we’re able to take, the places we’re able to go, and the skills we’re able to learn— everyone cosplays for different reasons, and everyone finds worth in it for different reasons. With that in mind, NO ONE can tell you that you’re doing it wrong and find fault in you. They’ll try, yes, but their words only hold as much meaning as you give them.
It’s very easy for someone giving advice to say “brush it off”, but it’s very hard to implement it— impossible, really. But we have to try. You can’t do it by yourself, though! One of the best ways to deal with this bologna is to surround yourself with a positive support system of friends, cosplayer and non-cosplayer alike, who will encourage you and remind you of the reasons YOU’VE chosen to love cosplay, regardless of what drama, backlash, or general ignorant stupidity comes your way. Whether its finding groups on Facebook or here on Tumblr first, find some folks who share the same interests as you or attend the same conventions! Or, when you’re at a con, check out interesting panels or attend photoshoots and gatherings for your favorite fandoms; it’s a surefire and quick way to meet some friends who share common ground, and for shy people (like myself, believe it or not) that’s a wonderful way to break the ice easily.
If you happen to see us at a convention again, Anon-friend, please come and say hello! I only bite when cosplaying the Grinch, and I always ask nicely first like a good little What~.
Try not to distress too much over the words of someone who is callous enough to not care about how you feel. Again, their words are only as meaningful as you make them out to be.
And frankly, Anon-friend, they shouldn’t mean a thing.
