The NYX FACE Awards second challenge is up and running and this challenge is ‘Anime’! I nearly fell out of my chair when I heard that that was going to be the theme! Seeing as I was already making a costume for an anime character for AVCon this year, I thought that I may as well use this as a test run to see how I was going to do my makeup on the day and how the base of my costume looked. So for this challenge, I’m recreating the Snake Princess, Boa Hancock from One Piece!
For AVCon I’m going to be cosplaying her Impel Down outfit because I really wanted to wear one of her caped outfits because it’s winter here in Australia and I wanted to keep warm. Boa Hancock is kinda known for her revealing outfits and for winter, that was kinda not possible. I don’t exactly have the body (boobs) to pull off one of her more revealing outfits.
I love Boa Hancock so much because she’s so strong and feared but then when she’s around Luffy, the only man who’s shown no interest in her, she’s putty in his hands. Her daydreams are my favourite part of One Piece because she’s so ridiculous.
I also maybe get a little silly on snapchat whenever I get into costumes and here are some samples of the snaps I took while in my costume.
This was also the first time in about a year that I’d worn contacts and I must say, it was a bit of a challenge to get the first one in after having so little practice but it made me really miss wearing them so I might have to purchase more soon.
