28th April 2011: Make up So because my skin is sensitive I've had to be careful with what I choose for this cosplay. :/
I can't use face paints such as snazaroo as it makes me go all puffy faced :(
However, my mum has given me a concealer set called Models Prefer, and one of the colours is an off white/bluey colour.
I thought, MEH why not, because I know these are okay on my skin, I'll use the concealer on my face and dust it over with a grey eye shadow, and it seems to of worked. I dusted it over again with powder, and so far its lasted quite a few hours. I'm not sure how many, but a while nonetheless. I'll post up pictures anyway. (I added horns because I'm that cool)
Now I have to find a similar solution to painting my arms as there is no way near so much in the tiny pot to cover my arms as well.

Would be sweet to get a pic with you :D

Yessss this is awesome! We must take lots of photos! 0u0
I made them literally out of cardboard and lots of paper mâché. Twisting it all into shape and then adding separate rolls of paper mâché onto it to create the weird crinkle effect :3 sorry I'm not very good at explaining!
