For those that knows me knows that I love manga and anime. I was 14 (11 years ago) when I had my first taste of anime. Back then, we didn't have broadband and everyone used the stupid dial up that cost a freaking bomb and was so slow, you can literally pull your hair and cry. Downloading one song of about 4MB will take you a good 6 hours or more. I kid you not, for everyone my age and older, we've all been through this. Ahh the difficulty then. Opps I digress.
Finding an inspirational character was tough. First off, I don't look anything like them with big eyes and all. In other words; I'M NOT CUTE.
Cute would definitely be one of the last words people would use to describe me. I wish I was but unfortunately instead of the cute heroin, I have the face of the evil villians.
Lacking a certain something - evilness perhaps?
Yes, the villain finally shows herself!
It's all in the eyes, I'm telling ya
The eyes can tell a tale of their owns, mine tells a tale of evil, cunning, sly, cynical
Hey, I never said I liked my eyes ...
For some strange reason, I decided not to play up the eyes too much. I just wanted them simple and to the point. I wanted it all to do with the expression of the face instead, I do admit that probably this pictures are too mild to be considered cosplay but at least I tried.
I will never fit into the princess-y mold, but hey, so why not just enhance whatever I already have instead of sticking tapes and all on my eyelids. So to all the cosplayers of damsels in distress, there, go find your hero quick cause the villian just arrived. Nyahahahahaha!
I sweatdropped a bit when I saw the contest rule being a picture of the items used. Problem is, I was being stingy as usual, I ended up using things I do not usually use.
I wanted a fairer than usual complexion so I used Lancome Base in purple, then Elianto cream foundation in white, Elianto Fresh Whitening Stick Foundation (I think the expire date has passed - MUAHAHAHAA), Red Earth Secret Potion, MAC Cream Base in Luna, MAC Don't be shy Blusher, MAC Typographic, and U2B lip palette. Oh I forgot TheFaceShop's falsies and Bourjois Crayon Kohl in black!
It was a super hot day and since I had my wig on and all, I'm not kidding when I say I nearly passed out from the humidity. The only thing that kept me going was hoping to win some of Eki's super cute hair clips. I've been eyeing them for some time but after the currency convertion is not something I can afford but anyway the "cosplay" was fun :D
