A makeup test for my upcoming costume! She’s Ahsoka Tano from Star Wars Rebels. The headband is only a placeholder. Also it seems my way to cover my eyebrows isn’t very good so I will shave them for the convention. For the white tattoos I tried a light lineart on the right side. I think they look better with the lines.

This should be ready for the next month’s Star Wars convention Hoth Con in Helsinki. More pictures when the whole costume is ready! I’m so excited! X3


Although we are called ‘Rainbow Direction’ and our most common symbol to show support and inclusivity is the rainbow, we welcome (and love!) seeing all the pride and diversity that everyone is bringing! It is not always easy to stand up for our differences, especially when those are not welcomed or accepted. Showing your own pride is courageous and can help others feel more comfortable wearing theirs.

These are just a few examples of participants showing their individuality:
