This year I will be cosplaying for the first time. I am planning to cosplay as Akashi from Kuroko no Basket, and I have a few questions regarding to makeup. Is make up necessary when cosplaying? If so, what kind of makeup do I need to cosplay as Akashi?

Thank you!

Well, to be honest, I always say that cosplay is all about having fun. Whatever clothing, props, makeup, etc, those are secondary. If you don't want any makeup, don't wear any

If you do want to wear some, and if I'm looking at the right character, maybe some eyeliner would be good? It's a tough call, though... could you post a picture of your favorite version?

I've never cosplayed before but I think that it's really up to you whether you want to wear makeup or not. You could wear foundation and a little bit of powder for a nicer, smoother complexion that most characters have and adding eyeliner might make your eyes pop a bit more, but it's definitely not necessary.

If it's too much of a hassle, just do without it XD
