In the Cave 2 by ferasha In the Cave 2 by ferasha
My partner and me, from a recent cosplay for the Tolkien Fantasy Festival held in Belgrade. The idea was to slightly troll the concept of Tolkien's sublime and dignified high elves by appearing as D&D Drow, but given that we opted for gray body paint instead of jet black, in the pictures we sometimes looked a bit bluish and came across as a weird mixture of Drow and WoW Night Elves. 

Still, we stood apart well enough in comparison to other elves at the event.

You two look absolutely awesome!
I love the fact that you chose for grey makeup. When I do Drow I always use grey as well. And I'm also familiar with the problem of the grey seeming blueish in some photos. Some folks even compared it to the Na'vi from Avatar. XD

I would have done the eyebrows and eye lashes white too though. Dark eyebrows and eye lashes takes down the idea of Drow having the typical white hair.

Thanks!

Grey makeup does look blueish in some photos - not only that we were also compared to Nav'i, but some friends have teased that we looked like Smurfs, which is, I'm sure you'll agree, a less flattering comparison - but in reality, it looked really fabulous. With white hair, grey skin and black clothes, we looked completely monochrome, as if somebody switched off the colors for us, y'know, as a piece of a black-and-white movie in a multicolored crowd.

As for the dark eyebrows, I purposely asked the makeup artist to make mine black, given that the main inspiration for my look was the Valsharess from "Neverwinter Nights: Hordes of the Underdark" video game - and then my partner just went along with it...
