Hey quick cosplay question. How did you make your Cinder scars look so good?
If you’re referring to my most recent Cinder, they’re lipstick (specifically the free Bite Beauty one they gave out for birthdays at Sephora? Kind of a universal mauvey color) covered in rigid collodion and a little concealer. Rigid collodion is an SFX product that tightens your skin, and creates a real indent where you brushed it, similar to how a real scar would act.
This was how it looked in my “good” test
This wasn’t as good in person, because the bottle was a little open so everything dried up and it was hard to use :\
Rigid collodion can set off sensitive skin, so I used Mehron barrier spray under it, and you need to make sure you have a special remover for it because if it’s ripped off too hard, it’ll peek your skin (I used spirit gum remover, but in a pinch, anything oil-based works, and at Anime Expo my sweat kind of loosened it up and it fell off)
It’s like a temporary, colorless scab! You can pick at some, but you should probably still safely remove it
This is the video I watched to introduce me to it, as well as a few SFX videos
Use lipstick to draw out the scar
Set with barrier spray if you have sensitive skin
Go over the lipstick with rigid collodion (I used about 2 or 3 layers)
So at DragonCon this year, my friend surprised me. It’s not uncommon for her to have a “secret cosplay” but what I didn’t know was that she was rushing to finish H’aanit so she could cosplay with me. Here’s my favorite shots from our small shoot.
She doesn’t have a tumblr but you can check her instagram accounts at the links below.
Had a little BSD photoshoot at Tracon! And by “little” I mean “oops, I totally misjudged the amount of time we need”. But we had fun nevertheless! So here’s a group shot from the end of our shoot including our photographer Matias.
Had a fantastic time as Sora at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party last week! So many characters recognized me as well as many, many cast members. “Sora” was shouted multiple times during the parade and Goofy, Donald and Mickey spent a super long time with my friend (who went as a Heartless) and I. I loved every moment and can’t wait to do it again.

Spent my afternoon making panels and sketching and cutting out rose applique for Bakugou’s ‘The Two Heroes’ movie outfit :) Ready to shoot that sweet Kiribaku power couple matching suits goodness next weekend! I’m still waiting for that Australian movie screening announcement though hint hint
Update: You can see this bad boy in action here! :)
“How can I describe my emotions at this catastrophe, or how delineate the wretch whom with such infinite pains and care I had endeavoured to form? His limbs were in proportion, and I had selected his features as beautiful. Beautiful! Great God! His yellow skin scarcely covered the work of muscles and arteries beneath; his hair was of a lustrous black, and flowing; his teeth of a pearly whiteness; but these luxuriances only formed a more horrid contrast with his watery eyes, that seemed almost of the same colour as the dun white sockets in which they were set, his shrivelled complexion, and straight black lips.”
Makeup test for Frankenstein’s creature! I adore him, so I had an absolute BALL with this. And yes, there’s a fair bit of Erik in there. I can’t help myself. ;)
