I really love how you did the makeup and shading!
Do you have any tutorials or advice for a newbie trying their hand at a Cass cosplay..?

Thanks for the compliment and the fav! Some general advice would be to google or search in YouTube for "male contouring", "female to male makeup" or something like that if you have a feminine face, and of course use pictures of Castiel as references to get that bone structure down. The stubble was done with a stubble sponge and paint that's meant for skin, I'm sure there are tutorials for that too. Good luck! :>

Is the stubble natural or makeup? ;O; (sorry, I honestly can not tell.)
And if it is make up, from one Cas cosplayer too another, how did you do that?
(sorry, I just really like how you did this~)

It's make-up, I'm actually a girl. :> But nice to hear that it fooled you! 

The stubble effect was made with a stubble sponge and water-soluble paint that's meant for skin. I've also edited the pictures a bit, since the paint was somewhat smudged already when I took the photos.

Pretty awesome! I'm trying to perfect Cas cosplay but I just can't do this kind of face... How did you do the shaved beard effect? Really curious...

Can't you just grow your own? :'D (Yeah, I know that people's beard patterns vary so not nearly everyone can get that kind of even full beard.) I used a stubble sponge and this watercolour-like paint meant for painting on skin.

Holy crap that make up that is AMAZING how do you do that?

valastaja Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2013
Thanks! The shadows under my eyes and cheekbones are just light brown eyeshadow, and the stubble is done with a stubble sponge and this watercolour-like paint that's meant for painting on skin (+ some Photoshop since it was a bit smudged when I took the pictures).

:D You make a seriously good Castiel!

...May I hazard a guess and say that your natural hair colour is reddish/pale brown?

(Also, just wondering, but are your eyes really that blue or do you use contacts? ...Just curious, because I'd love to do a Castiel cosplay myself ;p)
Reply
:iconvalastaja:
valastaja Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2013
Thank you (for the fav, too)! My hair is naturally this mousy, greyish dirty blond, so I guess you could say it's pale brown. :'D And I was using contacts, so I got the blue eyes and didn't have to wear my glasses - two birds, one stone!

:D First of all, you're most welcome!

...I'm gonna need contacts for my own Castiel cosplay too, guess I'll just have to find them and then learn how to... apply contacts. I wear glasses so... yay, that's gonna be fun... :O_o:

:iconvalastaja:
valastaja Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2013
Just visit an optician: they'll teach you how to apply them and tell you what kind of contacts you need. Have fun! :>

These expressions are fantastic, I could really easily believe this as a Cas whose vessel had been de-aged, or something.
