Okay, so some fangasming today has brought all this about, so now I have a Bunny-chan...uh, I mean, Barnaby...aaaaaaand I'll have a beard.


(Totally not jumping on any bandwagon, honest! XD We just really love this show...like burning!! Plus, I'm so excited to be Kotetsu but...I'm going to be such a 'dat ass/womanly hips' Tiger-kun. T^T BUT STILL! unf)

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.

Thanks, guys! =D @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. Thank you for explaining your wig styling method!

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~!

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
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...
