Prince Nuada
Hellboy II - The Goldern Army

Cosplayer: Sephirayne

Variant: The black and red outfit

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

30th June 2009: Make up test with contacts With no sleep and a cold I thought better way to beat it than have a random make-up test.

notes.
* Elf ears are not stuck down. Decided as it was only a test not to waste any liquid latex.
* Make-up more blended than before. Especially the lip area. After all he is a 'dude' elf.
* Ran out of 'Stargazer' white powder so the blending on the white base isn't as good as it can be.
* Please excuse my crappy hair. Half my frindge is now only two inches short thanks to 'BleachGate'.

Woot! Behold my elfy manlyness!

29th June 2009: Gahhhh! Last minute weapon change It appears that theres a weapon length restriction at LFCC so I can't take the spear with me. Even though I plan to make it so that it retracts it will still be too long.

So I'll be making the smaller sword instead for LFCC.

The spear will be made at a later date.

28th June 2009: Contact lenses I finally will have the correct eye colour. Managed to get some in the wildeyez range that will work for him. They are yellow with a dark edge so that it will add to the evil look of him. I was going to go for gold but I struggled to find any in my rpice range. I will try them out soon.

21st December 2008: Stunt Demo practise. I hope to start work on the delayed stunt demo that was meant to go with the cosplay for Starfury Battlestar. I hope to be allowed to perform it at May Expo if not it will be videod instead.

I'll be starting with the body conditioning to get ready for the actual blocking and cherography. Since its been over ten years since I performed a full fight stunt scene my body won't be used to it so it needs prep work.

(just realised ghow much of that last section could be taken the wrong way. Oh well.)

11th December 2008: First wear success Although costume wasn't complete I did the dress rehersal at Starfury-Battlestar. The make-up worked really well considering I wasn't using the originlal plan of latex. I ended up using a sword from stock as I ran out of time to complete the proper weapon for Nuada. The armour plates weren't finished so they didn't get worn. It did amuse me how many people had guessed that I would do the costume.

Very confortable costume to wear considering it was my first time in full face make-up. I'll hopefully have Nuada complete for Expo.

17th November 2008: Make-up design change Due to my budget for this costume being very small. I'll going to be dropping the liquid latex element of the make-up and just be doing the whole thing with basic make-up. Originally, my brother was going to be casting my face and then we would be building the latex pieces (exactly like how it was done for the film) for the scars. But I can't afford any of the casting materials (we are completely out of stock since my brother cast his hands for Edward Scissorhands) nor the latex. Luckerly my brother is very good with make-up so hes shown me ways that I can apply make-up that will still have the same effect.

I hope to do a make-up test soon complete with elf ears.

I falling in love with Nuala character but I don't know how to do with her make up :(

puzzledpenguin avatar

You look awesome!

Sephirayne avatar

Sephirayne - 29th November 2012
Seawaterwitch, It was done with basic make-up. Snazzaroo white block make-up for the face base and ears. Then grey and black power make-up for the eyes and shadowing. I then added the face lines with liquid liner. I would love to try Nuada with full latex pieces at some point. I think for Nuala you only need the make-up basic that I did as her make-up is quite soft compared to Nuada's.

Thank you Puzzledpenquin. I would love to wear Nuada again at some point. ^^
