Naokunn :- For the make up wise, i think it's better to make your make up slightly whiter (In My Opinion) Because he's still a demon~, but take note of your skin tone around your neck area too! and play around with contouring, for his eye make up, it's best that you do a cos-test first so at least u can try out first~ can try sharp eye make-up too and play around with Brown eyeshadow and apply abit below your eye and use a red eyeshadow apply it more to the side and blend it. remember to use make up brush when applying~

It also makes me feel more relaxed and I'm able to enjoy, It help me a lot in life too. As I have back problems, Cosplaying really helped me so I'm able to relax and enjoy myself, but it will still cause me pain. but Cosplay is a important hobby to me!!
