FFXIII: Just Pretend by MangoSirene FFXIII: Just Pretend by MangoSirene
"When I couldn't see a future, I was afraid. When the future was clear and it hurt to see, I just close my eyes and lose myself in happier days."


1. I love Clinique mascara. Seriously. That's au naturale. I'm like a freaking giraffe when it comes to eyelashes.

2. Not sure how I feel about this shot, but I do like how it shows off the necklaces, which are probably the only part of this cosplay that I'm 100% satisfied with. And the tan belt, too, but that's not in this picture~.

3. We tried to recreate that infamous screen shot of Vanille. Kind of failed because we didn't have a reference to get the correct angle. But it was Saturday night at ACEN, and the day had been absolutely crazy, so you know, it's okay!

Wait, so those lashes aren't falsies? Holy crap, Imma have to get me some of that!
Gorgeous cosplay, btw. The wig is excellently styled and looks so natural!

Nope, I don't use false lashes~ xD If I did... Man, that'd be even MORE intense! But yeah, Clinique makes the best mascara ever!

Thank you so much! :tighthug: I'm actually in the process of redoing the wig from scratch, I wasn't really happy with how intense the color turned out on this one, and I wanted to try a better method of back-parting. :)

Absolutely, it's one of my favorite cons! :D What days will you be there?

Let's seeee~ for Friday, I'll be Stocking in her school uniform, Friday night I'll be Vaporeon (we have a huuuge 30+ member Pokemon group!), Saturday I'll be Vanille with my XIII group, Saturday night I'll be Rue from Princess Tutu in her rehearsal outfit, annnnd last but not least, on Sunday I'll be Nia Teppelin in an artbook outfit of hers. :faint: Phew! Do you have any cosplays planned for the con~?

I'm thinking the whole thing. I'll be going with *QPUPcosplay. And I have a friend who will flip to see Stocking xD For sure I know I'll be doing Rinoa from FF8. My boyfriend (who's doing Squall) may or may not come (it depends on if he can get cash or man up and let me pay for him). QPUP's trying to get me to join their Sailor Moon cosplay, where I'd be doing Sailor Neptune. I'm a little skeptical, since I never liked Sailor Moon and the idea of a short skirt and bright teal wig kind of unnerves me. They've done a Pokemon cosplay, but I don't know if they'll do it again. As to after that, I have no idea. I was considering doing a gag cosplay of the O RLY? owl, like with a foam fursuit kind of mask. But I'm not sure how popular that would be, I've already been to a con dressed as a character no one recognized xD

Thank you so, so much~! ;o;

And yes, I made the wig myself! It started off as a medium-length white wig from eBay. I dyed it using the FW ink method. For the back-parting, I bought a pack of white extensions from CosWorx and dyed those too, then used Katie Bair's wig parting tutorial. :) After that, I curled each pigtail using a blow dryer, plastic curlers, and probably a bottle of Freeze Spray! xD
