I like when you shit post about your life and you should do it more often.
I’m glad you enjoy my bizarre sitcom life, and yeah I should post more original content again in general even if its just funny text posts
right after I posted that “Kinky Boots and Leather Clothes” started playing on my shuffle. Ah yes. My other Satsuki song.

psssssst. i'm going to cosplay akihiko, but the one part i'm having trouble on is the gloves and the scars, how did you manage to do those?
I didn’t respond to this right away! Sorry sorry!
So for P4 Arena Akihiko I know there are a lot of ways to go. I’ve never actually gotten asked about the gloves and the scar make up before!I’ll do my best to give you a good answer here.
(What make up, they’re totally real, man)
The gloves are barely held together at this point, I’ve been meaning to replace the inner glove at least. They were made from a variety of firm plastic/foam chunks and sewed into a glove that was then painted red with ruby red fabric paint. Specifically the knuckles were separated by a really thick needle and thread. For how impossible it sounds to force something like that and get it straight (it was quite thick!) Pulse did a great job! Basically all the pieces of the gloves came from her.
Finally, I hot glued Velcro strips to either end of the ring bits, when ever I put them on you just pull it around your wrists. I REALLY recommend sewing the velcro on though, since I have problems with it wearing off over time.
If you didn’t want to go to that much trouble to make these gloves (there are definitely easier ways) something I’ve considered is buying MMA fingerless sparring gloves and ripping of the label, but so far I haven’t found any that I think match better. Let me know if you have better luck!
For the make up I don’t have a specifically great picture, I think they change every time. Just remember it’s always starts at the top left of the chest and ends at the bottom right. The very first time I wore Aki we used a Collodion solution to make the scars have more of an imprint on my chest. However I feel as though it was hard for it to stay on the whole day what with all the moving around. As of recent I’ve been content with simply having the scars drawn on (almost always by someone else!) with different make up pencils and then blended to my chest until it looked convincing enough. The same applies to all the other scars, but I’d focus on the big bear scar first and for sure.
Long winded answer, but I hoped that helped! As you may have noticed, a lot of the stuff I mentioned was all very shakily put together and sort of just one of those "does it look right? —okay" things, which I believe is how a lot of cosplayers think! If you want to know any of the other specifics, feel free to message me again on or off anon!
Gonna hijack your post to talk more about easy solutions for scar makeup! If you want the bare minimum just use eye-shadow or eye liner, preferably three shades (darkest, mid tone and a light highlight shade) applied in that order. Then blend with a makeup sponge, and clean up the edges either with makeup remover or foundation that matches your skin tone. (I’d also suggest fading over the whole thing with the lightest tone so it doesn’t look unnaturally dark)
If you want to get fancier with it you can use rigid collodion or something like this to add dimension to the scarring. I would still suggest adding some color via eyeshadow or cream makeup though just so it shows up from afar better.
Got any guilty pleasure songs?
