I come to tell you guys about Mehron Colour Creamlend Stick! http://www.mehron.com/HYPERFORMANCE_CreamBlend_p/400.htm
This stuff is a miracle. I learned about it from my friend (who uses white to cosplay Animaniacs). It comes in a tube and is REALLY easy to rub/blend in. All you literally need to do is rub a VERY small portion on the areas where you want to be grey and then just… rub/spread the makeup. It its very easy to use. It took me literally 30 seconds to cover my entire hand and less than 5 mins to cover my face, and it feels nive on your skin. And, when you wanna wash it off, theres next to no residue. Also, its SUPER cheap.
I got mine on ebay for 9 bucks, free shipping. The Light Grey is perfect and requires 0 mixing, however this makeup is VERY good for blending if you wanna blend in blush for your characters. Also, they WHITE is amazing. Unlike Ben Nye, which is slightly translucent and makes you look like a Cullen (which is great if you wanna do a vampire/zombie), the Mehron white is opaque and doesnt show your skin under, so its perfect for rainbow drinkers and gamzees (if you apply it with a makeup brush).
I only did a test run and plan to use this at fanime. Again: Cheap, SUPER fast to apply, and has the perfect colour.

Model Magic for European Countries
Regarding Autumn Winter Opaques
As pre-mentioned in this post, as well as this one
I went ahead and ordered them in Gray Black because the Gray are out of stock and look like they have been for a while (I waited about a week or two before finally deciding to give #18 a try)
Now as mentioned in one of the posts, they are SOOO nice and soft and they come in such a nice variety of colors
However, being Gray Black, they are a little darker than I would like
Lighting also seems to be an issue because when pictured the color seems pretty accurate:
But if you’re sitting around in a dark corner or something, the tights are gonna look drastically darker
I’ll update when my Snazaroo comes in the mail to compare colors (and maybe actually go outside into the light to take the pictures oops.)

Counter review to This Review about This Wig
I’d like to counter that review and say that the previous reviewer might not have actually tried to floof it up. This is the wig with a bit of hairspray, not a lot (just added some to the tips to spike it) and this wig is very thick and floofy, even without hairspray.
Its perfect for Dirk, especially if you dont know how to style wigs.
And, it can also be used for dave. This wig IS as poofy as the picture shown.
NOTE: Not me in the pic, its my ex (still friends) who I let use the wig for a Dirk cosplay.

Mod note: Yeah, I thought I had actually deleted that post and not let it through. They didn’t attempt to style the wig which is dumb.
Jane cosplay wig
I bought this wig for my Jane cosplay and I’m so glad I did!
I wore this to a con recently and it was perfect. I could fit my huge amount of hair in it, and it only got a little tangled at the end of the con (which was easy to fix with a wide toothed comb).
If your headcanon for Jane’s hair is curly, I’d definitely go with this wig!

Home of Watches Review
Okay, I admit that I was skeptical at first because of the ridiculous fact that their main product is watches and they are selling wigs.
I ended up buying the Charm Long Wavy Wine Red for AradiaSprite which is on sale for 15 dollars and almost all of their wigs are on sale right now too. However, they have a weird thing where, if you transfer it to paypal, it might not show up on the main website that you made the purchase, but they have received the order if the money transfer went through.
I also never ended up getting a confirmation email directly from Home of Watches about the purchase either.
In addition, I opted for the cheapest shipping which was about a dollar or so.
PLEASE BE WARNED: It took a month and a half for the package to make it all the way from China, where the seller is based out of, to my home in the middle of the United States.
Now, the actual wig: It came in a nice plastic bag and wrapped in a net, a good sign considering my worry. Upon pulling it out, I discovered a wig cap inside the bag as well, which was an unexpected plus.
I immediately took it out and it wasn’t tangled at all, the wig fit nicely when on, and was curlier than expected. The fibers are fairly soft, but I did notice that they had gotten a little tangled in the ten minutes I had been wearing it. A quick run through with my fingers was sufficient in untangling.
Overall, I would recommend this seller as their wigs are very lovely and super duper cheap.
