Cosplay Makeup post - Kuo from Infamous 2


I was at Otakon, a large Anime convention in Baltimore, this past weekend, and I cosplayed Kuo from Infamous 2. I picked the costume cus it is makeup-oriented and the actual clothes can be bought and modified easily. I had a couple of mini-photoshoots at the con itself, but the weather was too damn hot for people in costumes to enjoy themselves :p Anyway here is one preview pic of the makeup before I melted in the sun. Those lovely contacts are bought from YouKnowIt.com, and most of the eyeshadow is from the Coastal Scents 88 color palette.

Hi! I'm actually planning on going as Kuo for Halloween this year (my bf's going as Cole - he's making an amp and everything!) - i was wondering if you could give me any tips? I've never done much costuming before so I'm pretty lost. You came out as an awesome Kuo so if you have any time I would really appreciate any instructions!
Thanks for any help!

hey - i understand if you don't have a lot of time right now or anything, but could you maybe really quickly tell me how i can get a shirt like kuo's? i can't find anything similar (and have little sewing knowledge)

Hi Tabi,
I got my shirt from an one-off auction on Ebay, so I have no idea how to find another one, sorry... as for the makeup, I used the Coast Scents 88 color palette and just applied the darkest blue near my nose and the lightest towards my temples, blending in between. I think I used about 4-5 of the blues on that palette.

Tabi said...

Thanks so much! I appreciate it - just one more thing, do you remember what kind of color contacts you wore are called?
