You're adorable! If you ever want to chat makeup, I'm happy to toss advice. *smiles* (reading that it lacked staying power in the comments).

The problem seems to be that Singapore itself lacks a lot in the makeup and props department. I must have hit every costume shop and makeup store I could find in my efforts to scrounge Louis's kit together in time for Halloween, and I only found ONE place that sold a (ridiculously expensive!) color palette with red/purple/blue for his eyes, since Singapore is apparently obsessed with baby-pink. I also couldn't find white powder ANYWHERE. The lightest offered would have been flesh-toned - albeit pale - foundation.

Well I'll be flying to Holland this Christmas, where I hope to find thigh-high heels in my size because I don't order shoes online, and Singapore is disturbingly lax in the shoes-in-my-massive-size compartment. I usually have to buy men's shoes over here, and obviously Singapore doesn't sell heels for men ... I'd need to go to Bangkok for that (no, really, advice from a drag-queen friend from one of my teachers ...) ... so I'll be looking for makeup over there too. Otherwise I'll definitely ask you for advice.

Thank you dear! But so much went wrong with Louis's! I'll definitely need to use some kind of foundation base next time, because by lunchtime the white powder was already getting smudged and blotted with patches of skin-color. Blech.

It is AMAZING to be able to realize a real character, there is better cosplay for a person only a character that it is already:
Create his own character in drawing from his real character.
Very beautiful resemblance in any case :D !

I began a rather similar project, I already have the characters but not still their graphic version.
But it is encourage to see your job :).

Well done you two :D

Sak, I absolutely adore Louise and James :giggle:
I have to be honest with you though, when I first saw them I thought they were OCs that you made for Pirates of the Caribbean. I hope I don't offend you with that but I feel like I'm not the first person to make that comment.

I'm also a big fan of your Neopets characters too. I remember that golden eyed Zafara all too well from when I use to play a lot more.

Actually you're the first to assume they were for PotC. Most people just suggested crossovers, but no, I have bigger plans for the lot of them.

By the way! I've been wondering this for awhile. I think I've read your descriptions enough to make an educated guess, but what is Louis, or what does he identify as? My first guess is that he's just a flamboyant crossdresser, but still identifies as male. My second guess being that he's transgender, and identifies as female.

By the way, I kind of just quietly followed you a bit ago and never really got to properly express my love for your character. I've fallen in love with Louis-- he entertains me and fascinates me. I always get excited whenever you post new drawings of him, and I am all too eager to learn all about his backstory.

Just.

Transgender in the 17th century ... I wasn't aware they had the procedure back then. Louis is a man on his own terms; he's not crossdressing, he dresses in ridiculously overdone Baroque clothes for men. He'd never dream of changing his gender, and does not identify as female.

OH. MY GOSH.
This is SO awesome!
...I find it kind of ironic that you cosplay your own character -- and yet do it so awesomely! With the makeup and wig and everything, you look exactly like him. I can't even imagine anyone else who would make as amazing a Louis.
Wow.
This is just plain awesome and hilarious, oh my gosh.
(the drawings are great, too!) XD

Happy Halloween to you, too!
