What’s In My Makeup Bag?

Looking at other people’s makeup is one of my top guilty pleasures, so.. here’s mine! I pack a lot of makeup for cosplay – let’s see What’s In My Makeup Bag!

If you are unfamiliar with makeup, I recommend reading my dedicated post on Cosplay Makeup first! This entry is to show which products I like to use myself and take with me for events rather than as a guide.

None of the products mentioned here are sponsored. Everything I have listed was bought by myself, I have not been paid to recommend anything! If you are interested in anything listed here, I recommend you do some research on the products first and see what works for you!

In Review: 2018

How was your 2018? I’m looking forward to 2019!

Outside of cosplay my life pretty much fell to bits this year, which in turn impacted my enthusiasm and productivity. But that’s how life goes isn’t it? The optimist in me thinks, “it wouldn’t be interesting if things went smoothly all the time!”, while the cynic thinks.. well, stuff I’d rather not repeat here. Hah!

Despite a rocky year, here are some of my cosplay highlights!

Press Restart

Hello! Welcome to my blog!

If we haven’t met before, my name is Exelia and this is a little corner of the internet where I like to talk about cosplay! This website is finally back with a nice shiny update and lots of new content – I hope you enjoy exploring and reading everything I have to share!

My Profile is much more streamlined and the Costume Gallery has been completely overhauled. Each costume has a gallery to browse, with detailed Construction Notes Construction Galleries explaining material choices, techniques, personal critique and progress images. It’s not a complete portfolio of my work, but it’s a lot of it!

This Blog has also been updated! A lot of my older entries have been removed to tidy things up, so it’s looking a little empty right now. There will be lots of dedicated articles and advice coming soon – the kind I share at events during talks or panels, but in a handy permanent format to refer back to!

Event entries are retired. Costume Roundup entries have also been removed from the blog, as they have a new home in the Costume Gallery as Construction Notes!

If you have any feedback on the updates, please don’t hesitate to let me know! I’m always looking to improve my content and share my experiences in the best ways possible!

If you like my work, you can support me on Ko-Fi!
