Oh yeah and Anime Boston was great :D.
I was pretty much in cosplay 24/7, even to preregistration. Surprisingly, my Takashi (HOTD) cosplay wasn't too popular, but Tracey was (I never knew he had so many fangirls! Haha~). Either way, I'm glad that my bloody baseball bat prop made it through weapons check!
Ikki Minami was by far my favorite cosplay though. It actually was perfect for the randomly freezing weather. And I met a ton of awesome Air Gear cosplayers there as well! We took so many silly pictures together ;p :w00t:

In other news, I'm totally getting back into One Piece and am already planning on a Captain Red Haired Shanks cosplay. It'll fit Boston's March weather perfectly for next year's Anime Boston (since it involves a heavy black cloak). I'll also get to experiment with drawing stubble on my face again~ (hopefully I've improved on that since my Mugen/Samurai Champloo cosplay haha).

My DA's kind of switched from an art account to a cosplay account, heheh ^^; Sorry guys! D:

Sounds like you have a lot planned! I hope all your future cosplays work out.

I don't know which technique you've been using to paint stubble onto your face, but using a textured sponge for make-up effects [link] or a dry stippling brush works really well. :)

I was considering using a mascara brush since I heard that works well. But those stippling brushes also seem to create a good texture... Maybe I'll stop by the local art supply store and pick some up. They don't look too expensive C:.
Since this is what he looks like: [link] I'll also have to experiment with creating those scars by my eye too. Maybe just using liquid eyeliner? D:

Yeah, I heard mascara works well too to create darker hairs.

I think red eyeliner would work well on your eyelid, but if you wanted to create a raised-scar effect on your brow and cheek, you can use liquid latex. It can be bought relatively cheaply at costume/art stores to create a ridged outline on your scar. :)

Thanks a lot, you're a huge help! Because his scars are partially above the eye, then extend below, I might opt for a simpler method, like the red eyeliner you mentioned. Thanks again :D

My pleasure! I hope you come up with a solution that works. :)
