Well here's me doing a test run of a desire costume and makeup just for the fun of it, and possibly for next halloween, my boyfriend and I might both go as Gaimen characters although I'm having trouble thinking of a good one for him to be. I know it's far from perfect (this was the first time I've ever done makeup as desire, so there are a few things I'd change) and I know my hair's not right (sorry can't use styling products right now due to a *long string of obscenities* rash), and I know that my corset highlights my bosom a bit too much (what little bosom I have) but still in tribute to my favorite member of the endless... I give you...
Close ups of the makeup:
You'll note I didn't do a full white out on the face, and I have a reason for this, although Desire's skin appears stark white in the novels, his/her features are very sharp, and a full white out tends to soften features, so I paled myself out and added some contour to get a desire-ish effect, I need to work on the eyes though and the lipline isn't as clean as I'd like. Should I maybe drop ten pounds or so to get desire's angular look?
We're ok with playing the gender we aren't (Ie: me as guy, him as girl, both girls, both guys)
