These costumes of ours have tasted seawater from yet another distant land! The last time we wore these for a location shoot, we were at the Lapu-Lapu Shrine in Mactan, during the time we flew to Cebu.

Here's me and Miguel in the costumes where we are least recognizable! HAHAHA

A closer look at our costume details soon! Stay with me, me hearties!

Before Cosplay Makeup: Basic Skincare!Before I write about cosplay makeup, I figured I should discuss some skincare basics. I feel it's important to know how to take care of your skin before you start putting gunk on it! This is really very basic so I think those of you with your own regimens already might be bored by it! But here it goes! I'm not an awesome guru wizard thing, but I'll just share some general concepts and products that work for me. It's different for everybody, but I hope this will be helpful! For your sreference, my skin type is combination: normal to dry with an oily nose. Hahah! Not my T-zone, just my nose! Recently, my male friends had gottenre very interested in makeup for cosplay and asked me for tips on how to go about it. (I think this was fueled by Kaname's visit to our country for Cosplay Mania '12, and they saw how beautiful he looks. ) I decided to ask them about their skincare regimen to figure out what products might work for their skin type.
