HOW TO COVER THICK EYEBROWS: Cosplay tutorial.

After my Uta cosplay I got a lot of questions on how I covered my eyebrows, mine are rather thick and a lot of people have trouble covering their eyebrows when they’re as thick as mine so here is my tutorial for you! This by no means the perfect way or right way, this is just what works for me.

MATERIALS: Glue stick, plastic knife, White powder, concealer, regular powder and face paint (optional)

  1. Get a gluestick, doesn’t matter the color. Cut of a big chunk of it and slap that sucker onto your brows, don’t worry it will wash out and not tear off your eyebrows. I’ve done this many times. Take a plastic knife or what ever tool you prefer and smooth the glue across your brows till they are fully covered. (I rushed so mine could have been blended better but eh whatever)
  2. You will want to get some white powder/makeup and cover your eyebrows where the glue is. I unfortunately ran out of my powder so I used white face paint instead for this, while it still works you’re MUCH better off with a white powder, it gives it a cleaner look.
  3. Time to use yo liquid concealer. Smother yo brows with concealer till no purple can be seen, I also used a little bit of pink facepaint to cover places where the purple stood out a lot.
  4. Now take your powder and whatever other makeup you use and BLEND IT ALL OVAH. You want to make it look as seamless as you can (Step one comes in VERY handy here, the better you blended the glue the better it will look at the end, I went back and blended my glue a little more.)

AND TA DAH! Now you’re an eyebrowless beautiful person.

Just bringing over a tip I posted on Facebook that I thought might helpful to cosplay folks.
Soooo a lot of times the metal buckles you grab off the shelf be it for armor or straps or jackets are going to be a shiny plated nickel. It’s possible to find an antique nickel finish, but it’s rarer, especially if you don’t have a specialty store like Tandy Leather near you. For me, Tandy didn’t have the antique finish in the buckles I liked best, so I picked up the shiny ones and tried to figure out a way to age them for Fili.After some internet digging I found a few different methods for darkening/aging the metal, but I didn’t really have the time or tools for them. Then I randomly found this product and decided, why not. The stuff is called… Nickel Ager. And hallelujah, it does exactly what it says. In the pic above, you can see how shiny my buckles were in the top picture. The middle picture was after letting them sit in the solution of Nickel Ager for TWO MINUTES and then letting them dry overnight. After that I buffed them with steel wool, and the result is the bottom right buckle. Bottom left is before being buffed. The result is beautiful, and half a bottle of the smallest bottle covered 6 buckles and a handful of studs and probably would have gone further if I was being careful (aka not lazy).So yeah, if you have bright shiny nickel plated buckles and need them to have a natural aged look, THIS.

Got my hands on one of these cheap on eBay. It’s for the best cosplay documentation cover EVER, since it’s an officially licensed product with reference photos right on the cover. The front side shows the back, and the back side shows the front. Makes sense, right?
Now to work on the stuff to put in it (other than my trading card with the real movie costume fabric swatches on it) so I can wow the cosplay contest judges at Archon!
