8th October 2011: Progress Just wanted to put my wig on, basically, but couldn't bring myself to do so without also wearing a bit of the get-up and makeup XD;;
30th September 2011: Sexy shoes Modded to be ultra-sexy XD Hurr hurr.
15th September 2011: An extra doodad If I ever did feel ambitious enough to make his Hero suit (because HELL yeah, I want it so bad!) I thought it'd be silly for me NOT to pick this up, just in case.
Ultra cheap motorcycle insulation bodysuit! WICKED~!
29th August 2011: Make-up test Hey, it's Bank Holiday Monday and I have nothing better to do, okay? XD
So, I figured that Kotetsu would need a specific make-up regime since;
a)he's got those sexy tired eyes goin' on~ <3
b)THAT BEARD, and
c)He has an asian skintone and I am GHOST WHITE.
Seriously. What was I thinking?
Well, I won't be tanning myself up too much since knowing my luck I'll just end up orange, so I've been using several darker shades of make-up to try and effect a darker overall tone. Does the difference show in the photos? (I'm not wearing a top so you can see how pale I am! >_< )
Witness Tigers' derpy expressions! Oh, I really do pick 'em...

I have a newbie question (if you don't mind): how did you style the wig? Maybe glue or hairspray or some magical arcane power? Your result is excellent, though-- it looks like a complicated style to replicate because of that tricky fringe, but you got it.
@birds-hate-flying; Haha! Magical styling powers would be awesome. You could cause some serious havoc on the streets~! XD
I use a ton of hairspray, basically, but the trick is to also use a hairdryer. For adding volume and creating the curly-bits I wrap the selected hair around/over a barrel curler, spray it then blast it with heat. To keep the tips of the hair anime-pointy, PVA glue works wonders. ^__^V

OH, and the slicked-back parts are sprayed and combed back like crazy, plus I've left a couple of bobby-pins in to be safe.

I think we just found the basis for a superhero(ine) comic book-- Surprise Styling against the evil overlords Respectable Haircut and Company Requirement.
