Eyebrows?
I'm planning to cosplay L soon and it'll be my first cosplay yay ^__^. But recently I've noticed that L doesn't have any eyebrows 80. I have quite dark and fluffy eyebrows and have tried to cover them with various things including concealer and foundation, but it still doesn't look right.

Ah yes and i'm going to bind too with bandages and duct tape XD so if anyone has any helpful tips it would really help ^////^. And what method would be best to bind a larger chest?

Thankies

L doesn't have eyebrows? :S I know he has them in the manga atleast.. Either way your hair will probably cover that area, makeup generally wont cover eyebrows, PVA glue and paint works but its not really worth trying to get it to look right. I've been told http://www.t-kingdom.com/products.htm are good for binding if you're after something permanent!

I didn't believe it at first either XD I looked through some of my manga sometimes he has them sometimes he doesn't @^@




Anyway thank you ^___^ awesome cosplays by the way

Haha thanks, seeing as he has them in some i'd just assume it was laziness in the art, or like I said because his hair would cover them. =P If I were you i'd save yourself a lot of hassle and just keep your eyebrows. XD

Try looking into having them waxed possibly if you say they're rather fluffy ^^; that way you can also have them thinned out so they're less noticable and more anime like saving the hassle of having to cover them
i also heard about a way of compleatly hiding them by using a thin layer of warm wax and then letting that dry, then covering the wax in concealer and foundation although im not to sure how well it works as ive never tryed it myself ^^

Ask Sana-chan. She cosplayed an awesome Gaara once and covered her eyebrows well. Go here http://www.cosplaylab.com/cosplayers/detail.asp?memberid=1709 for pictures ^^
I don't really know what she used though.

I plucked mine off with eyebrow tweezers before for my Gaara cosplay. It's relatively painless if you use a cold compress. It also allows the eyebrow hair to grow back easier and less 'patchy' than shaving them off would.

Using eyebrow tweezers would probably help you thin out your eyebrow hair Generally my rule is to not pluck out the fine translucent hairs, it's not really necessary.

I also find that a light dusting of foundation helps afterwards - the skin beneath the hairs you've just plucked out will be paler than your normal skin so the foundation makes it look more natural.

Good luck!

Making Faces has a good tutorial on how to cover your eyebrows temporarily. It recommends (off the top of my head) brushing liquid sealing wax onto your eyebrows, then once it's dry, covering them in foundation and pressed powder. You can then draw whatever shape/style/colour of eyebrow you like on top.

I'm not sure where you'd get liquid sealing wax from though.
