A little while ago, Fé and I were searching for elf ears for our Disgaea cosplays. Latex ears, like those from Aradani Studio, weren’t the best for our costumes because none had quite the right shape. Also, we specifically wanted ears that stick away from the head when you wear them. That’s when we came across the elf ears sold on Yaya Han’s Original Cosplay Accessories store.
Here is my experience with painting patent/synthetic leather shoes with acrylic paint. I’m sure there are other ways to paint pleather shoes but acrylic worked pretty good for cosplay!
I was in charge of making the evokers for our Persona 3 group last year and the method I used ended up being quite simple and inexpensive so why not share it? This isn’t a perfect method, the biggest flaw is that the paint easily cracks if you drop it on a hard surface, but if you value inexpensiveness like me, $15 evokers are hard to beat (even cheaper if you make a batch)!
This product has been my one and only concealer for the past 2 years now and I’m very happy with it! It’s expensive at $42 US or $28 US for the to-go size, but I’m still using my first tiny to-go tube so you get a really good run for the money. Granted, I don’t have a lot to cover besides dark under eye circles, some broken capillaries and occasional blemishes, but I do use it almost every day.
When I was working on my Kurai cosplay last year, gothic and elegant gothic fashion inspired me a lot when it came to designing the details of the dress that couldn’t be seen well on the only picture that exists of that outfit. After browsing through countless pictures of visual-kei rockers, I decided to try my hand at dramatic eye make up. I wanted highly pigmented red eye make up and after trying a few powder shadows (and being sorely disappointed), Fé recommended I try Make Up For Ever’s Aqua Cream in Red/#8.
