makeup basic

I don’t generally post my work to this blog but I actually did something really cool over the past four weeks in my special effects makeup class.
Basically my idea was a rejected Disney character from the steamboat willie era, whose creator sold his soul to bring her to life and she’s been roaming the basements at Disney studios for almost 90 years.

((For @sixpenceee 🙃🙂🙃🙂))

Queen Levana from The Lunar Chronicles - before and after I revisited it for Redbubble. It amazes me how a couple tweaks here and there can make a portrait that much more intense.

APH France more like actual living perfection.))

Don’t mind me, just pumping out the tutorials like they’re going out of style.

This is a watered down explanation of what you should have for a basic cosplay makeup kit. If you’re a cosplayer who never really wears or ever wore makeup in your daily life, you might not know much about what you should pick up to start yourself off. If you’re just looking for a tutorial to give you a basic kit for when you want to look good at a con or for a photo shoot, this is for you.

Lupine looks super cute in this video too, so I would…. take a gander…

Contouring Mistakes + How to Avoid Them (Dark Skin)

youtube

Hey my pals, I put together a quick video of me applying my Trill spots for my Jadzia Dax closet cosplay that I did awhile back! Nothing really special!

I used the Anastasia Beverly Hills DIPBROW™ Pomade in Medium Brown for the spots (that’s all I had laying around at the time lol)

And my wig is a IMLADRIS CLASSIC in Spanish Brown from Arda Wigs

Imagine Loki arguing with you. The fact that he never shows his full emotions, to always remain cool and collected, cold and calculating, even when he’s angry.
Imagine finally, desperate for any sign that he cares and lashing out desperately pleading for a sign.
The argument finally hits his breaking point and he snaps back, raising his voice. You break down in tears, pulling him into a desperate hug because it’s finally obvious how much he cares even if he doesn’t always know how to show it.

mare|ena
y'all i had so much fun cosplaying mare barrow. i literally felt like such a kickass princess because i did this in honor of being discharged from the mental hospital (that story is somewhere else on my page)

***PLEASE NOTE. I DID NOT DO THIS TO WHITEWASH MARE BARROW. A LIT WOC BETTER PLAY HER IN THE MOVIE. I JUST WANTED TO HAVE FUN AND FEEL STRONG***

what i did: half of my face is mareena. the other half is mare. one the mareena side i tried to look cold and dead like a silver hence the cool tone foundation and dark makeup. basically, i did my very best to be silver and even added a silver flush that you can see if you look closely.
on the other side- i made myself look beat up and worn down like mare. i added as much color and damage to my face ask possible. i also attempted some pretty terrible looking lightning scars.

***ANOTHER NOTE: NOTICE HOW HALFWAY UP MY CARTILEGE ON THE MAREENA SIDE I HAVE A NEW PIERCING. IN HONOR OF MARE, I’M GETTING AS MANY AS HER, ONE FOR EACH SIBLING. AND ON THE OTHER SIDE, UP IN MY ROOK, I HAVE MY FAVORITE PIERCING FOR CAL. GOING TO PUT A RED STONE IN AS SOON AS IT HEALS.***

this was so much fun. i hope everyone, including Queen Vic, loves it as much as I did. @vaveyard 🖤🖤🖤

xoxo, iliana 🌹

Glanni Glæpur and Íþróttaálfurinn Headcanons

I just thought I’d finally weigh-in my own personal headcanons I’ve gained for the characters despite me never really talking about them much.

Glanni Glæpur

  • Thinks he is #ALLTHAT #ANDTHENSOME
  • Is the most suave person you will ever meet
  • Elegant to a fault
  • Always dresses to impress
  • Can slay just by walking by people
  • In private?
    • Is the biggest goober ever
    • Like.  The biggest.
  • Cries at sappy movies
    • Especially if there are dogs in them
    • Screams and clings to nearest person during horror flick
  • Loves to bake
  • Loves to cook in general
  • Will spend hours in the bathroom
  • Robbie is a distant cousin of his - appreciates he’s not the only one in the family that understands makeup makes a look
  • Basically, in short:
    • Most elegant, well dressed, suave motherfucker you will ever meet
    • Biggest goober ever in private

Íþróttaálfurinn

  • Big huge bara man
  • Is super duper intimidating
  • But is the biggest softest sweetheart ever
  • The kind of guy that can tackle a criminal to the floor (Glanni) and headlock them but said criminal (Glanni) will not have a single hair on his head harmed
  • Loves fish too much
  • Way too much
  • Proud of Sportacus (his sweet baby child)
  • Shows pictures of him to everybody (Glanni)
  • I mean everybody (just Glanni)
  • Stop showing Glanni pictures of Sportacus, Íþró. 
  • Proud Íþró Pabbi
  • But people who don’t know him think that he’s violent
  • He’s not!
  • He’s pure and good

Glanníþro

  • On the surface to others they look like they have a fucked up relationship
    • It looks like they have a really bad love/hate relationship
  • They do… but refuse to admit that they are disgustingly adorable in private
  • They totally love to lay on eachother 
    • Or in blankets (and totally not cuddle…)
    • And watch movies
    • Or read books
    • Or tease eachother relentlesslty
    • Or look at eachother when they think the other isn’t looking and sigh wistfully
  • Constant pranks
    • Glanni will never forgive Íþró for putting lysi in his hair-oil bottle that one time
      • Ever
