Skyrim Orc Mage by habren Skyrim Orc Mage by habren
My Orc cosplay from Anime Boston 2012!
Four hours of make-up application.... but so worth it.

Hand made costume.
Makeup and Bald cap from Mehron.
Hand sculpted nose bridge with wax/putty from Mehron.
Staff borrowed from =Pyek

This was the third day using the same bald cap. I'm actually really impressed with how it held up. :)

Photographer: ~dmcfoto


See the rest of the photo shoot with me and my kahjiit sisters!:

You are a very beautiful orc and I mean that from the eyes of an Orc.^^ I'm a half-orc myself, so you can take it as a compliment.^^

Sorry for the late reply!
They're just regular vampire teeth upside down. I had to walk around with my jaw jutting out, but it was worth it. :)

Would you possibly be able to make or sell a costume like this one? I'd definitely buy it!

Oh wow, I don't know! It does have a few discomfort issues, I'll let you know up front. But I would be willing to part with it, I think. xD

I'm guessing you're the one that e-mailed me though? I'll get back to you there!

Can I ask what kind of make up you used to get your skin like that? It looks really great :D
Reply
:iconhabren:
habren Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Of course you can!

I used Mehron brand green paint and put it on with one of their sponges. Then, to make it more skyrim grungy, I added some brown. I also painted the brown on my eyebrows because they had kind of disappeared behind the green. Then black pencil eyeliner and mascara-- which made a huge difference in how real the skin color looked.

The nose shape was done using Mehron's wax putty. I used a toothpick to shape it while it was on my face and then blended the edges in with liquid latex. I was actually able to take it off and use it more than once! The bald cap is also from Mehron. The ears are just some cheap ones I got at a costume store. ^_^

Here are the direct links to pretty much everything I used:

Paint: [link] I used green and sable
Sponge: [link]
Wax/Putty: [link] (this smaller size was plenty. And the fixative "A" made it hard so it kept its shape.)

If you do it, let me know how it goes!

Thank you so much for the info :D Last Ohayocon we tried mixing eyeshadow w/ lotion...the color was good, but didn't spread evenly.

Oh, I've never heard of that method! Well, I think the Mehron paints are definitely a good investment. Also, I didn't even end up using that much of it, so there's plenty left for next time. :)

WONDERFUL !!
I would fave this picture 1million times if it was possible, it's..... breath-taking =D
All details,.... wow.... the war paint, nose, skin, teeth, the dress which is a full replica of the game.... Oo
You put a VERY hight level for the next people who will want to cosplay orc in Skyrim, I'm not sure it's possible to do better ! ^^'

Perhaps there is one default, the mage's stick isn't in Skyrim but it's not important, it works perfectly with the character !
