Dear fellow SPG cosplayers!

nightdenizen:

Do you do bot make up? You do?!?

What do you use for your black? Snazaroo or black pigment?

How do you seal it? Do you not? What do you like to do first when doing your makeup? 

black snazaroo seems to be the most popular choice among fans. i’ve tried a few different powders but nothing stays quite as beautifully as the mehron metallics.

i have now done full fanbot makeup twice, and i occassionally practice on my arm. i have yet to really “seal” my blacks (i’ll be experimenting with this again soon) but what i’ve been doing is dipping the brush into some mehron mixing liquid and then brushing a small amount of the liquid directly onto the snazaroo cake. swirl the brush around to pick up some pigment and then paint normally. the alcohol in the liquid evaporates quickly so you will have to continually add additional drops to the cake whenever the consistency gets too thick—just don’t go overboard with it!

i do NOT recommend painting large areas with gel eyeliner. it will look amazing for a short time and then it will begin to crack. i had to constantly fill in the cracks with liquid eyeliner, which caused the gel to flake and peel further.

ufojockey:

Are there any fanbots who use things other than just facepaint for their cosplays?

Like, making some sort of mask or put metal plating on their face?

I’m curious because I’m considering doing something like this and I’m looking for ideas. All I’ve ever seen done is facepaint. 

for grommet i do the rivet thing where you paint googly-eyes silver and then adhere them to your face using spirit gum. i also have a nose screw and two cheek screws that i made out of craft foam. if you go the spirit gum route, i recommend getting this.

I still don’t have much backstory for Grommet but I’ve been working on my irl family tree (which has grown SURPRISINGLY LARGE) and it helped me complete the tiny, fake one.
Blue is male, pink is female. The more saturated boxes represent the characters that’re still living.
Roughly even ratio of males to females (among the living).
The company is founded by Portia, her husband Princeton (he takes Portia’s last name), and her brother Phineas. Of the trio, only Portia is still living. I realize this is a pretty commonly used plot device, but I’m currently playing with the idea of people dying from some fatal illness inherited from Pierce. Victims will include Pierce, Payton, Phineas, Persephone, and Parker. Princeton’s and Phillip’s deaths will result from experiments attempting to cure said disease. Prudence dies of natural causes.
Grommet was built for Portia by her son, Patrick. Still not sure what for, but atm I’m thinking she is the main caretaker for Portia, as well as Phoebe’s remaining children. Along with everything else, this is subject to change.
Phineas, Patrick and Paul are engineers, Princeton and Phoebe are chemists, Phillip is probably a bioengineer or something idek. And I think Pepper is or will become CEO.
Ummm what else
Percy was born as Primrose but is FtM Trans*. Phillip García is part Filipino and his children are part Filipino, German, and who knows what else. Grommet fires people from the company a lot but she is property and doesn’t actually have that power so everyone just ignores her. I may or may not create an additional bot or two, we’ll see. Kinda need to live up to the “Tech” part of the company name…
OH RIGHT, MY FAVORITE PART: all the females’ middle names are Uriel and the males’ middle names are Ulysses.
SO EVERYONE’S INITIALS ARE PUG. Coincidence?!

Anyway Portia is the HEAD PUG. And my irl Gramma really loves dogs so Portia will probably have a pet pug. Named Pugnacious???? His nature may or may not go against that name :B

EDIT: also I was just gonna have the Guentzler watermark/background happen once but then I tessellated it and now it reminds me of the TARDIS
