¿Conoces el princess challenge? pues.... / ¿Do you know the princess challenge? well....
Lately in social networks a "challenge" has been viralized called Princess Challenge, it consists of taking a photo of you looking like a Disney princess, I sincerely wanted to do it but I got tired of looking for a princess that looked like me, none represents me so I decided do my own challenge "Cosplay Challenge".
Cosplay: Disfraz que se utilizan mayormente para representar personajes o roles, casi siempre se utiliza mas que todo en representar personajes de anime o manga.
Cosplay: Costume that is mostly used to represent characters or roles, it is almost always used more than everything to represent anime or manga characters
I chose a character from a series called "Naruto" this character is called Gaara, he is a male character, but I wanted to represent him in a female version, so I decided to put on makeup and edit the photos since I do not have red hair or eyes like him.
Here I show you my disastrous makeup case, I started to put on makeup in a somewhat simple way, since I was going to edit the images later.
Antes del maquillaje / Before make up.
I started adding foundation to my face, I put on the lightest foundation I got, and then I put the powder on my face.
The next step was to make up my eyes, I was guided by several photographs of the character at the same time that I put on makeup to do my best.
Usé este lapiz de ojos primero, y luego que delinee completamente todo, repase estas lineas con delineador liquido.
I used this eyeliner first, and after I completely outlined everything, go over these lines with liquid eyeliner.
Now with this pencil I paint my mouth and shade my eyebrows a little to make them look lighter, since my eyebrows are very dark.
With this same pencil I made the mark that characterizes this character on the forehead, this was the most difficult part, because I had never drawn any Japanese letter.
At this point I finished with the makeup, and I started taking the photos :)
Since I wanted to look very similar to the character, I edit the photos using red color for my hair trying to give it a slightly darker tone than the original character, also edit the eyes as well and played with various effects that we will see next.
In these two photographs we can see the change from the original image to the edition, try to make them look too exaggerated to make them look more like the style you wanted to achieve.
Well folks, this was my post trying to do this "cosplay", I think it looked good despite not having all the accessories that the original character should have and the editing took around 2 hours.
Todas las fotografias son de mi autoria y las edite con picsart.
All photographs are my own and I edit them with picsart.
