An old photo, but I just realized I had never posted it! Taken at Anime Matsuri earlier this year when I debuted this costume. I like how it shows off the veins and helmet details. Also, my gold contacts!
I definitely love the colors in this picture, very crisp and bright. But what catches my eye most of all are the veins. You did a really awesome job with them. Are they built up, or just shaded ridiculously well? Either way, it's still impressive.
They're raised! My friend who does awesome special effects makeup helped me out, we used liquid Elmer's glue and she drew it on my face with me laying flat. It took a while to dry, haha, but was worth it! Then I just covered it with matching makeup and did some shading. :3
