YJ: Standing By by MangoSirene YJ: Standing By by MangoSirene
I just got home from Florida to news that we'll be getting a lot of our ACEN photoshoots back in the next few days - so I'm trying to get the last of my M'gann photos up before then! :D

Kind of similar to the first one I posted... but *CourtoonXIII decided to get fancy with the camera~

More info on my Miss Martian cosplay is here: [link]
If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask! :heart:

I've never watched Young Justice BUT I was a HUGE Teen Titans fan when it was on TV so I'm thinking I should watch it. Teenage superheroes... I love them.

And I love how you look in this picture! The body paint looks amazing <3 btw if you're looking for a different brand, I used Mehron StarBlend pancake makeup for my Princess Bubblegum and it lasted an entire con day without really coming off. The only thing only thing is their colors are kind of limited, I don't like the only pink they have :/
Man you just look so freaking cool, how do you do it?

DO IT. Young Justice is absolutely amazing. Seriously, I haven't been this obsessed with a series in years! :la: It definitely has a Teen Titans feel to it, but it's a little more serious. I think you'd really like it!

Ooo, I've seen your Princess Bubblegum! The paint for that looked so nice! I thought about using Mehron, but after talking it over with Elemental I think I'm going to give PAX a shot- just because then I'll have completely control over the color. I'm sooo nervous though, I'm going to get the supplies over the summer and give it a little test run beforehand... Eeep.

Hahaha thank you- I honestly owe it all to Courtoon, as we've discussed I'm quite the derp but she always manages to make me look a whole lot better! xD

I just started watching the first episode online, it TOTALLY feels like TT except with a less cartoon-y animation style. Omg I totally flipped when I saw the arrow with the detonator on it, I was like "OMG THAT'S SPEEDY"
I feel like such a nerd ahahahahaha~

Omg you looked at it? :heart: And I want to see how PAX works out. It's more professional-quality, right? Like Mehron is too, but usually it's for face painting. I'm going to be cosplaying Raven from the TT cartoon so I need to buy more body paint for that and I'm curious to see what other brands I could use.

HNNNGHHH ROY. Oh lordy. I don't think I've ever been so attracted to a cartoon man before. But... dem arms. I just. I can't even. /swoon

I'm glad you're enjoying it though!! New episodes should be back in July... hopefully. At least that's the word on the street. Fingers crossed it comes back soon though!

PAX is what they use in the movie industry, it's about as good as you can get for bodypaint! :D Again, I still haven't used it myself, but it doesn't seem overly difficult. *the-sushi-monster actually just posted up a huge journal entry about her experience using PAX for the Demon Sisters and Corset, so I'd definitely give it a read-through if you're interested in using it for Raven! (Which you're going to be AMAZING as, ommmgggg slfkgjhlsjg you make me want to cosplay Starfire, hehe!)

Okay I FINALLY finished the first (first two?) episode of Young Justice. I'm gonna watch the whole thing :3 It's a lot different than Teen Titans, and I still like Teen Titans better, but it's like a combination of Justice League Unlimited and Teen Titans. And when Miss Martian showed up I was like "OMG IT'S SIRENE" and also where is Speedy?

My friend is going to cosplay Kneesocks and she wants to use that tutorial, but I might just stay with Mehron. I found that another brand on the same website has a better color for Raven (and omg you saying I'll be a good Raven makes me so excited <3). I'm just doing it on my hands and face though so I'm not too worried, I have gray tights to use already. And I found a zentai suit place that makes them without heads and I'm commissioning my friend to make the jewels out of resin and I already have the shoes and I found the perfect fabric for the cloak and and and omg I'm so excited! I just need OATZ AND SQUATZ til the con oh god.

That's a good way of putting it! I'm glad you're liking it so far though, hnnghhh it's just such an amazing show! :la: And Roy/Speedy/Red Arrow isn't part of the YJ team, he gets fed up with being a ~*sidekick*~ so he decides to do his own solo-hero act. He pops in from time to time to be really attractive. Although Episode 10 is Roy-centric and it's beeeeaaauuuutiful!

Yeah, for Raven I think you'd be fine with a more "normal" bodypaint like Mehron considering you're covering just a small portion! But for things like the Demon Sisters or Miss M (who wears white oh god character designers what were you thinking) PAX is a better choice because then it won't rub off all over your costume. xD But ommmgggg I'm so excited to see your Raven!! What con are you making her for again? (And ohhh lordy I hear you on the oatz and squatz, I need to start doing those before I cosplay Batgirl!)

I'm on episode 7 now, I'll probably finish today :B I was waiting til graduation to get into it and I graduated on Friday plus I got my own computer for college so I'm able to watch it on my bed :'DDDD
Also man Roy seems like an asshole to me >:'| I just gotta keep watching though haha. Also I know I've watched too many cartoons when that scientist lady appears and I go "oh that's Tara Strong" and I look it up and it is her lol.

I'm just a little worried because Raven wears all black and then I'm wearing light gray body paint so I'm a bit concerned with it getting everywhere. My Marceline had that problem, she had white body paint and a dark dress and it got all over it >: So I think I'll get a sealant or something.
I'm gonna be wearing Raven to Kumoricon in September BUT~ I'm going up to the San Juan Islands with my Terra (who was also my Marceline haha) and we're gonna try to get some amazing photos up there along with some video >:3 I'm worried about getting in shape in time, but at the same time I'm pretty much completely covered; I have tights that'll help my legs and then I'm going to get some Spanx or something to wear under the zentai suit. Raven is fucking curvy, way more than me. I have big hips but I'm going to try to get one of those butt-enhancers and I'm gonna have to stuff/layer bras.

Actually I don't usually get con creepers or anything but I'm just a bit concerned about the fans that Raven has, I googled some refs to find the color of her hair and all sorts of hentai and suggestive fanart showed up >: And then my Terra and Starfire are both gorgeous so we're just going to be in trouble haha. But we have a friend who is cosplaying Slade so hopefully he'll keep us safe lol.

Episode 10 totally redeems Roy, that episode is just all kinds of glorious. Hnngh. ROY. DEM ARMS. But yeah a lot of the voice actors are really familiar - there's actually a lot of crossover between the YJ and TT casts! As if they needed something else to make the shows similar, derp

Yeah, I think as long as you seal the body paint, you should be just fine! Maybe try one of the spray-on fixatives instead of the regular sealing powder, just to be safe? I've never used it before but that seems like it might be more "secure," if that makes sense.

Girl you're going to just ROCK Raven, I know it! Tights are a godsend though, I actually may see if I can find some to match my Miss Martian paint instead of painting my legs because tights just look sooo much better. And then I wouldn't have to worry about it smearing... Hm. This may need to happen. And spanx are glorious too, god knows I would've felt so awkward in my Nia plugsuit if I hadn't been wearing a full-body unitard underneath, haha!

Ugh, creepers are annoying - and yeah, for some reason the Teen Titans girls get them bad. Just stick close together and you'll be fine though! :hug:

Eee I'm glad you like it dear~! I know a lot of people don't like using dancwear knits for superhero costumes, but because Miss Martian is from, well, Mars, I wanted that little bit of extra flash to her outfit. xD

Painting! For this shoot I used Kryolan Aquacolor. But when I wear this costume to a convention, I'll be using PAX for my arms and legs, and then probably stick with Aquacolor for my face. :)

The paint looks so AWESOME.... Since I briefly had experience with body paint, though mainly just on my face, it was SUCH a B****! So kudos on doing an amazing job on the green paint dear!

And ughhh, the paint was SUCH a pain! I'm switching to PAX for Youmacon because I need something that won't wear off throughout the day... But I'm really nervous about it. D:
