    One thing's for sure, you'll need to start collecting some makeup stuff, especially green and black eyeliner. The rest is up to you to decide and experiment~

    1. Where can i find a cheap place where i can get the costume and wig?(Reliable too)
    ans : the only cheap place is : our Sgcafe market, cosplay section.
    u can join batch order in some of e thread.
    Taobao.com is another option

    2. As you can see, he has a really pale complex, how do i achieve that?
    1st : toner
    2nd: moisturizer
    3rd :Foundation (i use BB cream frm etude hse) *if nt so sure just ask e shop attendant "I WANT FOUNDATION TAT MAKES ME SUPER WHITE!!"
    4th : concealer just buy no.1
    5th : base powder *He is pale right so just buy no.1 from watson
    6th : loose powder. also no 1
    i bet you'll be super white!!
    If nt white enough just dab more cake to ur face OTL. XD
    3. What should i use to draw the green lines down from his eyes?
    u gt 2 option : green eyeliner or green white board marker LOL

    4. Is there anything i should look out for particularly?
    foundation,base and loose powder, must be applied at neck area so that you won't look like you're using a mask.
    And pls buy a Lotion make up remover at sasa/ watson.
    if u dun wan ur face to spoil.
    also ask for attendant tips if u dunno hw to use smth u bought.

    5. What do i need for the eye make up and how exactly ( need help on this since im a guy >.< )
    Use Black eyeliner. go youtube see tutorial how to use it.

    6. His sword, and how to craft one.
    Not so sure. Go back to ur sec school borrow eq from ur D&T department lols.


    I hope That helps =D

    no 1 is for the very fair ppl (basically is the most white and bright lor)
    after appliying all the power then just use eyeliner blabla~
    the knitted eye brow u can use black brow pencil or black marker lols..
    just draw across and there u go~

    lotion make up remover is to remove make up lor..
    water is not enough to remove e make up.
    it'll clog ur pores if u didnt use e lotion.
    oh year need to draw eyeliner right?
    u must have eye make up remover too..
    buy loreal de.
    is like blue colour.
    in e bottle u'll see 2 layers.
    blue colour oil ontop and below is lighter blue liquid.

    I;ve got some questions for you:

    1) Have you read the FAQ for beginners?

    2) Do you have any friends who are girls? They can help you tremendously with make up.

    3) Did you go through art class and D&T? Any good at it? Ingenuity is the key to making props.

    4) Practice your acting as the character himself.

    i dont even think you need any foundation or powder for ulquiorra.

    His skin isnt pale. ITS WHITE. lol.

    for him you'd need to use Face paint/body paint.

    the green-black lines down his cheeks can be achieved with eyeliner and face/body paint as well.

    the paint can be found at art friends.

    try googling on how to apply. im sure theres a tutorial.

    the black around his eyes would be eyeliner.

    Costume and wig. try the market section or local tailors.

    his mask. try playing with clay/jumping clay.also to be found at art friends.

    No other man for me but HIM.

    His face is white. If you don't use body/face paint, your face won't be white.
    ....For that matter, his whole body is white.

    And it won't necessarily look like EW GROSS AND FLAKEY LOOKS LIKE A CLOWN and crap, it can look pretty nice.

    Yes I do. Careful on the neck/areas with folding and alot of movement.
    An alternative is greasepaint, or similar makeup products.

    And, what everyone else said about eyeliner.

    And I'm not a 'sir' hurrdhurr.
