I totally knew what it was from the thumbnail, might be the fact that I play LARP Tongue

Awesome costume btw. Love the armour-esque gear you've made.

I personally use baby-wipes to remove any make-up I use when dressing up.

I knew what you were from the thumbnail too ( from my sordid past playing Forgotten Realms D & D  Grin), but I agree that even if noone knows what you are its still a frickin' awesome costume and I think you'll get rave reviews. Go, geek chicks!!! lol

I know what a Drow elf is and I am not a huge fantasy fan, I only have friends and a husband obsessed with the Drizzt series and D&D. I think this costume is awesome and you should wear it! Even if people don't get it, which I'm sure at least a couple will since there are more geeky people in the world than one would think, they would think the costume is amazing, which it is.

I don't know a Drow elf from a pepperoni pizza, but this is a fantastic costume even without the make-up, and would still be amazing with other skin colors, even human earthling skin color. It just wouldn't be as recognizable as a Drow elf....

Without the dark make-up:
Maybe you could say you're a SICK Drow elf !  Shocked
Or a genetically engineered Drow elf!  Roll Eyes

Don't tempt me - it's the makeup that makes it hard to wear!  I actually thought of making it a regular elf after the first go, but the makeup won't come off the ears - so it's either new ears, or stick with the onyx skin. Okay - not really - I have always chosen to play drow in any game, and I'm really quite taken by Drizzt  Cheesy- that's what prompted the creation in the first place!

Thanks so much everyone for the comments!  Craftster folks really get what it takes to make something - and I appreciate you guys so much!

I used normal face paint with succes. It was waterbased, so I just used a painters brush to get it on.
Just make sure your skin isn't dry before you start to put it on..

And trust me, you'll always be finding black makeup a few days later.
I even had it in my inner ear.  Roll Eyes

This is from the time I walked through Copenhagen promoting a Midwinters festival for Roleplayers, Vikings and Medieval.. And my dad didn't even get a decent picture of me when I was finished with the makeup.
The paint does come off with wear, though. My neck was funny to look at after the cape had been chafing me.  Wink
(And it doesn't show the pretty necklace I used as a kind of crown.)

If it's not the time yet, I say go for it! It's an awesome costume, and I wish I had something like that!

Nice job!  The water based face paint wore off my neck completely with the cape - I ended up with black streaks in my white hair, etc. but when I put it on at first it was nice and smooth like yours.  With my second attempt, I like how the eyeshadow stayed put much longer even under the clasp area.  I think it looked more like "skin" than the face paint I used - a lot of people were amazed at how skin-like it was - not flat-looking.  It took a whole cake of eyeshadow (Loreal Lush Raven applied with fingers and small sponge brush) but I really liked the results and durability better than my face paint attempt. 

Thanks for the compliment - you definitely know your makeup!
