@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!
