@dragonflame185: Sorry for taking so long answering this! I meant to post a tutorial before I left for A-kon but it got crazy busy before I could actually do it. I'll try to post something once I get home a few days from now. But for right now, I'll tell you that my makeup method for Shion's scar is using a few layers of different products, starting with a primer, then lip liner, then filling that in with blush, then a layer of finishing powder followed by a makeup setter. You can use relatively cheap products from a drug store for your color and the rest is makeup essentials that definitely have uses for other than just a scar. I find that it doesn't quite survive a whole con day without rubbing onto my white shirt a bit, so my other method I'm using for situations like that where I need it to last a long time without worrying about the mess is using athletic tape. It's not as natural looking as the makeup method, but they both are pretty practical. Athletic tape is cheap to find online with an entire roll only being a few dollars and the only downfall is that it's like ripping off a bandaid when you take it off afterwards. I'd recommend using the makeup method for things like photo shoots where tiny little details really matter since it ends up looking really natural on your skin if you do it right. The tape method is great for cons when you need that mark to stay right where it is without any worries. I'll try to get a proper post up about it once I get home.

And I'm so glad to hear you like your wig! I've been hoping it'd turn out well for you!

Here's my scar tutorial! http://weiselzelle.tumblr.com/post/88919319594/two-ways-to-fake-shions-ridiculous-scar

I'll probably go back and improve it later once I'm done with moving next month. Things have been awfully busy.

There's my tips on Nezumi's scarf! I can't believe how long it took me to actually post that. I promise I meant to do this a lot sooner.

Oh, pictures would be awesome! Sorry I didn't get these posts up sooner, though! I just finished a bit of a hectic move, so I've been late getting things done left and right.

*wipes the dust off the topic and drags it up front again*

Well, I'm still considering about the cosplay so far. But I am considering. I think Nezumi would be fun, and probably rather comfortable to wear for a con, especially if I would use my own hair. He doesn't have any crazy volume or strands that are defying gravity in the worst possible ways. I'd also rather take the manga approach where his hair is black, meaning I can do with black dye. I'd love to do that with real hair, because it's really hard to get a tight and high ponytail good looking on a wig.
Then I'm kind of considering Karan, because how often do you get to see side characters? Also I'm not that young anymore... so I could try the Mum approach. *chuckles*

I did a not very serious try of putting my hair up today and well:

By next year they'd be long enough to wrap a part around the tie and make the whole sticking out part a little shorter.

The one thing I have no idea yet is what to do with the make-up. Although I assume it will be less is more, for either Nezumi or Karan.

I like your hair, it looks cute. o.o Somehow I think it's even better when you don't wear a wig. ^^ Especially those blue wigs look so weird sometimes, especially when they are full of hairspray to keep everything in place.

@Ahiku are you trash talking my Nezumi wig? Huh?! *sprays on ten more pounds or hairspray*

But really, if you can manage to pull off that look with your natural hair, that makes a cosplay way more comfortable. (I just don't have that luxury as someone with very little hair.) And cosplaying Nezumi's outfit is definitely super comfortable. No crazy shoes (I wear mine regularly because they're comfy!), comfy (ugly) pants, and the black jacket hides anything that stands out for those who have to bind. And it looks like your eye color matches well enough you wouldn't need contacts, so that's another bonus!

No (;_;) OMG *hides the hairspray*
Yours is not like that. But I've seen a lot of horrible wigs when I searched cosplay pics. o.o I guess not even a hurricane will make that hair flutter through the air. X'D

Yes, not wearing a wig will be a little bit of freedom. XD And I think Nezumi's hair style is one of few I can manage. (Since my hair is very heavy and refuses to be anything but straight.) Though I don't think I can go without hairspray for a whole con-day either. *grins*

Amen to the shoes! And don't you call cargo pants ugly, I used to wear them all the time before clothing stores decided that all they're going to sell now are skinny-jeans, ugh. (I even went into the men's section to try finding something else.) The black jacket will just be comfort, too for I have not much to bind, I think I'll go hunting for one when fall comes around and (fake)leather will be everywhere again (hopefully). Since that would be an item I could wear outside cosplay as well.

The eyecolour I wish. I just went and used a filter for black and white on the eyes. So I'd need contacts.

@Kai I'm not dissing cargo pants, just Nezumi's pants! Just look at that shredded bottom and the other leg tucked in! He's a fashion disaster!

Also as for the jacket, I actually found one that's linen last year (though the zipper is on the wrong side) so that's much kinder in hot weather. It's way more breathable than leather/fake leather. Plus I accidentally shrank it in the wash but it ended up fitting better, so there's that, too. Custom fit. ;D I know it's not as accurate, but it'll at least keep me from getting a heat stroke or something at a con and the only way to see it's not a "leather" jacket is to get right up close to it and feel it.

Also that photo totally had me fooled on your eye color! Well, that's a bummer, but at the same time, getting colored contacts is fun. Someday I want brown ones just to wear normally. I look way too mean with my gray/blue eyes. I look like I'm about to fight everyone.

YOU look mean? O_O Sorry, but you look rather cute to me. X'D I've seen meaner looking people.

I found a leather jacket that looked a lot like Nezumi's a while ago. X'D But Im definitely not the type for leather jackets, so I didn't buy it. *not suited for them or cosplay in general*
(When I want to buy new clothes, I always think: "Oh, this would look good on Shion/Nezumi/Safu/Inukashi, but in the end I can't find anything for myself. X'D This series is taking over my life.

@Weisel Well, it's probably more convenient that way. I bet the shredded leg just slips out all the time, so he stopped bothering to stuff it back in? XD

Now I have to go look if you guys ever opened up a topic to discuss the story of Nezumi's pant leg...

And, you didn't strike me as mean either on those fotos I saw on the tutorial... light eyes are pretty cool.
