"Over a century ago, mankind faced a new enemy.
The difference of power between mankind and their newfound enemy was overwhelming. Soon, mankind was driven to the brink of extinction. The surviving humans built three walls: Maria, Rose and Sina. Then they lived the next century in peace, under their protection.
However... on that day..."
I am finally back from my long awaited absence and lo and behold, I too have been caught up in the latest craze/ fandom: Shingeki no Kyojin, also know as "Attack on Titan". I've read all the manga chapters that have been released, kept up with the latest episodes of the anime and can I just say...I LOVE IT! Both the storyline and characters so far have really captivated me being both interesting and jam packed with a combination of action, horror, gore and drama.Definitely
my type of thing.
Who to cosplay you ask? Well of course
that was the first thing on my mind too! Like I said above, there are just too many amazing characters to choose from and when I eventually settled on (Lance Corporal) Rivaille...I found that there were already a handful of other amazing cosplayers most of my idols
having already done so. MOTIVATION OUT THE WINDOW
bottle of red facepaint, FIVE
hours and some prosthetic makeup later....BAM. Colossal Titan I swear there was no pun intended "OTL Just like how he actually appeared haha!
. So there you have it! How my Colossal Titan came to be and I have decided that I will
cosplay him because I'm about 158cm and will be the most chibi titan ever xD About the makeup
To achieve Colossal Titan's facial structure, I basically had to "remodel" my face to look like his via the use of prosthetics (liquid latex) for the most part, on my brow area and nose. In the later stages of post-production, Photoshop was used just to accentuate certain features (i.e. Cheekbones) further to create an almost sunken in and hollow look. Over this I applied concealer before facepaint and added details by painting them on using different shades of red to create the muscle-like sections and as for the teeth, I used false acrylic nails which were each trimmed and filed down before being glued to my face. KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR AN UPCOMING TUTORIAL ON MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL
Look forward to photos soon when I get my morph suit!~
