Light Up Fabric Flame Tutorial! ~ Halloween & Ao no Exorcist / Blue Exorcist Cosplay

Okumura Yukio from Ao no Exorcist / Blue Exorcist - Having a bipolar moment. lol
Is your costume need of some pyrotechnics that are street safe?... or Hair SAFE!!! In the world of CG this can be created in film convincingly but for us mere mortals that dawn our costumes on the street or stage you don't want to be a fire hazard.

I made these flame to be blue but you can get the same effect with shades or red, orange, yellow and white for normal fire. ;)

Urban Decay, Too Faced, Physicians Formula, Milani, Annabelle, Sleek (missing from phtoto), & MAC
I'm starting this mini series of one of my favourite products ever. The gel based waterproof eyeliners pencils. As some one that does 16+ hour makeup looks I want the products I use to last with out any or minimal touch ups! The obsession started with cosplay makeup (or as I like to call it Extreme Bridal Makeup!) because the makeup has to look good in person, in photography, and on stage which is a tall order that many braids can attest to as well. As in the fact your probably wearing a number of heavy layer of fabric during the summer doesn't help in staying cool in a braids dress for a cosplay as well.

Also pretty much all the gel based pencils are made in Germany by the same manufactures for all these brands with minor formula tweaking.


Here is a cross section of different waterproof eyeliner in black shades from both drugstore and high end line for review.

This post covers:
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil $19US or $23CAN
Too Faced Perfect Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner $18US or $24CAN
Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Eyeliner Trio is $12US or $15CAN

Milani Baked Blush in 01-Dolce Pink and 08-Corallina: Swatches & Review

PURCHASED
Milani Baked Blush in 01-Dolce Pink and 08-Corallina
These retails for $799US and $9.99CAN at Zerhs. Now there is a rumour that spreading tha Milani will be merging with NYX. It's just a rumour but in the US you can find Milani now at the Dollar Tree with a lot of recent new products (probably the stock from Target as they remove Milani from their stores in the US for space for NYX products). So it's time to haul you lucky US galls.
