San Photoshoot!

hey everyone! 
the first day of my big weekend is over and boy i'm exhausted!

Saturday started off with a nice adventure out to the Yarra Valley to shoot my San cosplay! 

The cosplay i originally made for my little sister who didn't take it home with her when she left... rude.

soooo i fixed it up and added to it to make it better-er and thought to myself "hey, i know a great place to shoot this" 

So after gathering my guuurrrllsss and having a sleepover with WAY too much candy we headed off to Badger Creek to shoot!                                                                                           

I was very cold. I really need to start doing cosplays with, i don't know, maybe pants?!
Anyywaaaayyyy we went straight to work because we were so excited about the location and probably on a sugar high. 

after trekking through the bushes and being assaulted by ferns and sticks we had a small break and decided we'd brave the creek area for some cool shots! aaaaandd of course it wouldn't be a complete without someone getting wet. My toes were wet but that was nothing compared to Belly who miscalculated as she was stepping along the stones and managed to get herself into a position where she had to take two massive steps through the freezing mountain water to get to a safe rock.  She was a bit too confident i assume. XD

After the river we tried some crazy jumping shots just to shake up the dynamic but they were harder than we had thought so we gave up pretty quickly. Aaaaaannnddddd then we thought: "hey we have the red facepaint!" 
so to finish off the day we went with a sort of post battle San and got some cool pictures of that! :3 
Really looking forward to seeing the photos and the videos we took while we were there! I will be editing the behind the scenes videos within the next few days and you will be able to see that on my YouTube channel - MoogleMini! (who would have guessed that would be what it was called?!)

keep posted here as i continue my cosplay journeys :3

cosplay update! may! ◕ ◡ ◕

heeeeyyyy gurrrrllll! 
Pretty hectic this week trying to balance out the making of multiple costumes and the transitioning between two houses!  With some materials I need being in one house when it really needs to be in the other to be used! struggling!
Two planned photoshoots this weekend with two very different cosplays! 
Saturday is the spontaneously planned shoot of the San cosplay I recently fond while packing up my old house. The costume, I originally made for my little sister to wear to Armageddon in 2014. After finding it again in a box I decided that I would fix some imperfections and do a shoot with some friends! Pretty excited for this one!
On Sunday night I will be heading into the CBD with two friends to shoot our Punk renditions of some D.C BATMAN villains! I will be rocking a genderbend punk Joker that i've been working on all week for another event which takes place on saturday night!
many things happening! Two shoots should also mean two new videos! So should be super fun!

Miss J Makeup tutorial!

heya there!
thought i'd do a little write up kind of tutorial thing on how i designed and decided on my make up for my female joker cosplay which i'm going to be wearing to Neko Nation Melbourne !!

fiiiirrssstttt are the things you need for the tutorial in list form!

-> White facepaint
-> Setting powder (+ setting spray is optional!)
-> Black eyeshadow
-> Black eyeliner pencil
-> Green cosmetic glitter
-> Green eyeshadow
-> Red lip liner
-> Red lipstick
-> falsies
-> mascara

OKAY here we go!

ONE) paint your face white ! I used snazaroo white body and face make up cake which i bought online and set with mac cosmetics transparent powder!!! If i had any sealing spray i would have applied this after this!

TWO) With black eyeliner, line your water line and small amount underneath it. 

THREEE) taking the black eyeshadow on a smallish brush from the corner of your eye draw a straight line up to the top of your eyelid real estate! (just under the brow bone in my case!)
Fill this is in with solid blank


FOUR) carefully undo your glitter and start applying it in a straight line down the outside shape you created with the black eyeshadow! If you like you can leave it like that, OR, you can do as i decided which was add more glitter all over the lid! 


FIVE) on a new brush or whatevz, sometimes i use my fingers! you take the green eyeshadow and use it to map out your desired eyebrow shape! ( you can see in this picture i didn't do this because at the time i couldn't find my eyeshadow!)
if you're spray painting your hair green try and match the shadow to the hairspray colour!

SIX) now the lips. with the red lip liner, outline your normal / desired lip shape extended the corners out in an UPWARDS small flick. (again you can go as long as you like!)
if you wish to you can use a darker liner than your lipstick.

SEVEN) go over your lined lips with a red lipstick of your chosen shade! 
i chose a very bright Jack Nicholson sort of shade! 

EIGHT) to finish, curl your lashes and add faslies! (in my picture i just carefully applied some glitter to my own lashes!) 

and that's it!

for my hair i will be getting some lime green hair extensions and placing those throughout my hair and throwing my front section up into a simple quiff!

i've had a lot of practice with quiffs for cheerleading! 

i will be posting again in the future once i've gotten the entire costume together!!!

good luck with your make up! 

comment a picture if you give it a shot!
