22nd July 2011: MAKE UP BREAKDOWN As Nomes asked, I thought I would put it as a journal for anyone who wishes to know how did my make up to get that young boyish look for Roxas round the eyes for us girls who crossplay!
----------------
STEP 1: Concealer- I put a layer of concealer evenly round my face making sure to get in all the nooks and crannies round my nose and under my lower eyelid.
STEP 2: *OPTIONAL* I also put some cover stick on any blemishes that I had- of course, if you dont have any co you're that lucky then you can skip this step. lol
STEP 3: Powder foundation. As i dont work well with liquid foundation, I use only powder foundation and apply it generously round my entire face and applied a layer on my eyelids too.
STEP 4: Apply white eye liner to the lower eyelid on the waterline (make sure you have a decent white eyeliner- unlike my crap primark one!), also apply a thin line of it on the inside part of your eye nearest your nose following the contour of your eye.
STEP 5: With black eye shadow and a thin make up brush I did a thin soft line on the upper eyelid as close to the eyelashes as possible as if it was eyeliner. Using eyeshadow it gives a softer line, whilst defining the upper eyelid to give that animated look! MAKE SURE TO STOP AT THE LAST EYELASH ON THE OUTER PART OF YOUR EYELID!
STEP 6: Apply mascara to the upper eyelashes and the lower ones, but only apply a little on the lower eyelashes- but make sure theres enough to make your lower eyelashes to define the line of your lower eyelid.
STEP 7: Apply as pale as eyeshadow to your upper eyelid like normal (make sure it matches your skin tone), it creates a soft perfect skin look on your lower eyelid and if you get any mascara on your eyelid it covers it!!
STEP 8: Apply a faint soft line of a darker brown eyeshadow along the crease of the top part of your eyelid to create a "shadow", it will help bring out your eye and not look so flat.
STEP 8: With your black eye shadow apply a very small faint line (using it like eyeliner) on the outer corner of your eye as if you were drawing an anime eye on paper to create a more "box" corner and continue down to your lower eyelid BUT MAKE SURE TO STOP JUST PAST THE FIRST COUPLE OF EYELASHES! This give your eyes a very anime/CGI feel and really makes your eyes POP!
STEP 9: With a TINY bit of foundation go over the eyeshadow to seal the eyeshadow on your eyes and to tone down the harshness of the black.
STEP 10 *OPTIONAL*: With a black eyeliner PEN go over your black eyeshadow line to define it more with the black mascara. I did this at the end as the skin coloured eyeshadow went over the original black line, it just made my eyelashes POP! a bit more to give it more of a squeenix art look. I also added some more mascara on the upper lashes so it matches as I don't use fake eyelashes.

DONE!

If this doesn't make sense, PM me and I will gladly make a tutorial video to put up onto youtube. I tried using other tutorials but they came out so girly it made me cringe so I winged as I went today. It may look too harsh without your Roxas wig on, but when you get the wig on, it really works! SEE PHOTO!

This tutorial will work for Sora also I would think too- especially KH2 Sora!

14th May 2011: Shoeeees Thanks to the amazing Nomes, she is going to give Roxas's shoes a go for me so it's one less thing to worry about for myself as I wanna try and get Rikku done also for Hyper Japan. ^_^

Nomes- I WUV YOU!!!! I'm so going to give you some money for them!

8th May 2011: trousers to go I've now got everything together apart from those damn trousers! I can't find the right base trousers anywhere that I'd be happy with to make into Roxas' pants... so yeah.. but this year I WILL get him complete as I've been seriously itching to crossplay Roxas again for what seems forever!!

I also gotta fix the inside the wig coz the fasteners have snapped off so yeah.. i need to restitch them into place.

UPDATE: I found base trousers yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!!! Couldnt afford them really at the moment but finding a right size in stock in primark trousers is a miracle so when i found a pair that fitted i bought them anyway. Now to edit edit edit!!

6th August 2010: Trousers UPDATE The lovely seller of this costume is kindly refunding me for the trousers alone if I send them back to her. ^_^

So I'm going to re do them so they fit me shape and give them a smaller drop too, as the ones I purchased had such a low drop that I would not be comfortable in them.

Now I gotta wash the tops to freshen them out when it doesn't look like rain outside, because then I can hang them out to dry in fresh air which could help with the smell of fags.

4th August 2010: Costume received But in poor condition. Got alot of work to do to make it wearable. It stinks so bad I don't even want to try it on. Trousers are about 2 sizes too small to what the seller advertised too. So I'm gonna have to make them myself anyway. *sigh*

Good grief, wig just about survived the post I see >.< It's looking really good on you. You can touch up those spikes with some pva glue or hairspray though if they come undone (Y)

Aww thank you hunny!!! I was hoping to this one finished for expo, but finding the right base jeans in my size is proving difficult.. not so much coz of the style but the shops having my size in stock!! haha! Seems that a size 12 is proving popular all of a sudden! haha!

So I'll be orgy roxas instead! But I REALLY wanna get this one completed!
