AWW!! HUGS FOR YOU ANON I hope your day gets better AND that you have a superior day tomorrow!! ouo!! I’m glad to hear that my blog makes you happy though, that’s really really sweet and I can’t think of anything better to hear!!
Hi there :3 Sorry to bother you on your vacation, but I'e asked a couple Homestuck cosplay help blogs and gotten no answers, so now I'm gonna come ask you a thing. Yes, ok, so, I'm cosplaying Meulin and I had ordered Snazaroo light grey (MUFFLED GROANING) and I ordered a pair of light grey tights off of welovecolours. But now, people are telling me that Snazaroo is kinda blue-ish. I know you roll with Ben Nye but do you have any ideas on how I can help get rid of some of the blue-ishness? D:
FIRST OF ALL SORRY THIS TOOK SO LONG SHAKES I hope I can help though!!
SNAZAROO is a ‘cool’ grey as opposed to a warm grey! Ben Nye grey/white mix is also a ‘cool’ grey, while the ‘ghoul grey’ is the warm equivalent in ben nye creme and needs no mixing. PERSONALLY, I prefer the cool greys because they look more ‘alien’ - a warm grey for characters that aren’t aradia/karkat/lower blood color TO ME can possibly end up looking like thin make up, as if we’re seeing the tone of your skin underneath, even if its put on well! THAT BEING SAID, there are lots of cool things you can do to have fun with the color!
What my friends who cosplay the ladies of homestuck do is either
- put colored lipstick or eye shadow on UNDER the snazaroo on your cheeks, like blush! Also on the tip of the nose and anywhere else (ears, elbows, knuckles? - all up to your interpretation!)
- lightly brush on blush or eye shadow ON TOP OF the applied and sealed make up to give a bit of a blood color pop!
When we use acrylic paint in our air brush the grey comes warm and we have to get rid of that, so we buy some light blue to mix in with it as well. The same may hold true for Snazaroo, though I’ve never tried it myself! If you get a warm color (red??? orange?? I’m no color theorist) and mix some of it into your grey (A VERY SMALL AMOUNT!!!!!), that could help as well!!
I HOPE THIS DID YOU SOME GOOD LET ME KNOW IF YOU NEED ANY MORE HELP and happy meulin-ing!
you're really hot
THANK YOU ANON AHAHAH THATS REALLY SWEET
but i want u to kno that when i got this i was standing in a walmart with fuzzy green socks and sandals and sweat pants and my rage hoodie buying cottage cheese
SHAKES IS THAT A LIGHT UP SHARK SHIRT AAAHHH
I FUCKING WISH AHAHAHAH ITS ACTUALLY THIS RIGHT HERE!!! I didn’t buy it I was just trying it on but wow talk about REGRETS!! weeps
idk why but your gamzee cosplay always makes me smile, I have some of your pictures saved to my phone hope you don't mind ouo
AWW ANON YOURE SUCH A SWEETIE!! HUGS!! I don’t mind at all huffhuff (I am curious which ones though ehehe) Hearing that it makes you smile really really warms my heart so thank you again hhhhhh!!!
pssssst how do you feel about all the stuff going on with Russia right now? :c
AHAHAHAHAHAHA;;;;;!! come off anon and I’ll talk to you more in depth about it, but! one of the main things I take out of it is that America likes to condemn Russia for doing the same things it does, only in a less covert way. I don’t know too much about it other than what limited news sources have told me from a cursory search, so I can’t comment TOO MUCH!! I don’t think that sanctions are wrong, though, and each country has a right to decide how to react so I wouldn’t fault America for trying to defend its ally necessarily…
can you do a make up tutorial for gamzee makeup?? sober and pregame maybe, please????
HEY ANON!! I can certainly try to do that! Next time I put him on I’ll try to remember to take a video, or something! In the mean time, this is actually a pretty great tutorial and I’d recommend it to everyone ouo!!
is snazaroo any good for arms?
NOT TO MY KNOWLEDGE </3 I’m sorry anon!! Unfortunately I don’t know of much by way of non-airbrush make up that is effective on arms :<
I just wanna cuddle every snake.
it looks like that is someone elses hand entirely
