dangerzonechelsea asked: Your make up skills constantly blow me away, especially the Mario cosplays! I was wondering, do you have any tips for changing one's eyebrow color? I have thick, black eyebrows and trying to make them lighter, like a blonde, is a nightmare.


Answer:

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!

photodynamic-beats asked: Hello! I was curious as to what material the fake eyebrows in your Thornberry costume was. I have a larp character who's in dire need of bushy eyebrows and sideburns to be a hobbit.


Answer:

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!

IF YOU WENT TO SAN DIEGO COMIC CON OR KNOW ANYONE WHO HAS, PLEASE READ.
One of my dearest friends was found on the side of the road, unconscious and bloody. She was wearing this cosplay on the day it happened. She was last seen with friends when she ran off after a disagreement. Please, please, please, if you have ANY information or saw her anywhere, contact her mother. The full information is down below. This isn’t okay and it’s sickening to know that this happened at a place people truly can enjoy themselves. Please spread the word.
 ”I just received a call from the San Diego Police Department and my daughter Emily Weyer aka Milly Makara was found on the side of the road covered in blood with no ID unconscious. They are unsure what happened to her. My husband is on his way to the police station and then the hospital. If you have any information on what happened to her please send me a facebook message or call me at 951 229 3394. Thank you in advance”. -JILL WEYER

astronomnomnom asked: I've only seen your stuff on the Internet but my god, you guys inspire me. I remember seeing your Dexter and Mandark cosplays and it may have spurred me to cosplay Mandark too. But just wow, every time I see your cosplay I feel more confident about my own cosplay, you guys make me believe I can do it. Even so, I'm not that confident, and I don't know much about makeup or prosthetics. I wish I could one day meet you guys at a con, but I live in Australia so what are the chances of that huh?


Answer:

Wow, thank you so much! The world needs more OCD villains!!

Take care and keep cosplayin’!

Long post is long but I’m trying to get some more commissions lined up STARTING AFTER AFEST (beginning of September). if you are looking for someone to make a costume for ya, YOU MIGHT HAVE FOUND SOMEONE! I work relatively quickly but cannot afford to underpay myself. So this might help gauge pricing. I’ve included a bunch of costumes I’ve made and included in the captions what it’d cost for a costume similar. Included in the price is the cost of materials as well as the cost of labor. Obviously things that take me longer to make will be more expensive. BUT if they sound reasonable to you go ahead and shoot me an e-mail! cosplaykikala @ gmail.com (Without spaces obviously) If you want to make sure it got to me and that I’ll check it message me here too. I am desperately trying to afford paying back my student loans and it’s not workin out so well by myself. So why not do something I love?

Anonymous asked: I see you guys at every con I go to, and I always have wanted to make friends and hang out cause ya'll seem really cool! But recently a (ex)friend of mine told me that my cosplay sucks and that I look horrible when I cosplay, and it's made me really self concious and I feel like you guys would reject me or something. I don't have any cosplay friends anymore and it would mean the world to me if I could befriend you two. I'm just too shy to approach you.


Answer:

twinzik:

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.

Cosplay Fearless,
~Hee-Hee from Twinzik
