Akiba : Least but not the last, can you give your fans here tips in cosplay, how you make up or styling your wig, and how to make a best angle in your photo?
PD : About a wig. i think when you want to set a wig you don’t have to be scared. you should learn how to cut and fix this by your self first. Because a wig is on your head. Also don’t put product on wig much > Wax / Jel < it make wig heavy. and you can’t set wig up. and if you want to wash a wig you can use shampoo and don’t use powered.
– About angle for photoshoot… i think is up to one. or character. if i cosplay as cool guy i should turn my face a bit in 45degree for show my chin and jaw line.And move your shoulder up and look wide. and keep your hip behind your walk step. post like you have long legs.this is a point for men . I don’t cosplay as girl much but i think point to photoshoot is eyes and cheek. hahahaha
