Yzma from The Emperor’s New Groove

Yzma from The Emperor’s New Groove

Makeup details: I had the best time cosplaying Yzma! It’s true that villains have more fun. I went very cartoon-y with the lines and experimented with water-based makeup (Mehron’s Paradise paint) and an airbrush. Overall I’m very pleased with the face, and the makeup didn’t budge so I will definitely be using Paradise for future cons. I do want to make the lines softer and neater next time, and I need practice with the airbrush (the gloves cover how spotty my arms were).

As usual, @wasuu/wasuu.photography did an incredible job; I’m especially loving the bubbles for the potion and the Aztec background for the walls.

Last but never least, @nocturnevulgaire makes the best Jack Sparrow and Yzma is always on the look out for strapping young men.

Zenkaikon 2018 – Yzma

I had SO much fun cosplaying as Yzma. It was fun to be silly and to have regular people recognize my character! I’m pretty happy with the final makeup too, at least on the face.

I borrowed an airbrush from the lovely @nocturnevulgaire and I’ll have to practice the water/paint ratio to get a better coat next time on the arms, but it did create an interesting marble effect. I’ll call it a happy mistake and see what I can make with it later!

The last image shows the colors I used (I let them hang out on my hand most of the day since I had gloves). All of it was done with Mehron’s Paradise Paints and barrier spray. It stayed on all day, and it came off with very little mess.

Practicing for Zenkaikon and trying out water based paints. I’ll cover the rest of my skin too for that con, and alter a few of the harsh lines, but otherwise I’m pretty happy with it – especially since there was a it of a learning curve the first time I tried!
