Greetings to all your lovely little eyeballs! I heard from my overseas friends that a big contact lens store recently shopped shipping to the U.S., and people are scrambling for a new source for cosplay lenses. I thought I’d share my favorites to help you guys out! 😊
After years of knowing these sellers, I can attest that they are trustworthy and earnestly supportive of cosplayers. If you were wondering if these lenses are safe to use — I’ve used these lenses for years (especially from the first source I will mention) and have had no issues. I get my eyes checked by an ophthalmologist periodically, and he says my eyes are healthy. They’re not damaged by using these lenses, also because I observe proper lens care, eye care, and general hygiene.

When I cosplay, I normally prefer to tone down the color of my lips unless the lip color is an identifying trait. Considering that cosplay makeup looks can have a lot going on — for example, lots of detailing around the eyes — I like to downplay other areas to keep the focus on those features that really define the character.
My natural lip color usually looks pink, so it gives the appearance that I’m wearing pink lipstick even if I’m not. So I prefer to color my lips something close to my skin tone so it’s not distracting.
For this post, I’ll get into my favorite lip colors in my cosplay kit, and how I pick colors for certain characters!

To start, let me just say that this process is not strictly only for Naruto! 😄
I’ll discuss general concepts that can be adjusted to suit a variety of different characters, and show you some of my cosplay makeup supplies!
This is going to be a long photo-filled post, so brace yourself, get some refreshments, and let’s begin!

An updated routine, years after my first skin care post! ✨ I have such fond memories of that first one, and it makes me really happy when up to now people tell me that they learned so much (and laughed a lot) because of that journal entry! I had no idea it would generate so much interest, but I actually enjoy this skin care stuff and am happy to encourage more people to take care of themselves!
This isn’t necessarily only to prepare for cosplay, but it’s something you can benefit from for everyday life. Our face is something we regularly present to people and communicate with, so it’s great when you can feel more confident about it. 😀

Today is the second anniversary of the Big Hero 6 release date, when so many of us were touched by this film. ❤️ Seems as good a time as any to share some stories and additional behind-the-scenes photos from one of our most featured cosplay photo sets based on Big Hero 6! This was first shared over at: my original post on Tumblr (158,996 notes as of now)
Even if you’ve seen the main photo set before, I’m sharing some extra things below!

Hey, guys! This is Jin (behindinfinity)! Thank you for just being here and reading this!
Welcome to the first post of the new Tux Team blog! I haven’t kept a proper blog in a while, though in truth I have been missing it terribly. There is just something I’ve always loved about writing something more substantial than the usual Facebook/Instagram photo caption, and telling a story through a sequence of photos.
Some of you have followed my work from when I would mainly post on my DeviantArt, and until now tell me how much they enjoyed my long photo-filled journal entries there. But I doubted if anyone still enjoyed that type of posts now that so much has changed with all these newer social media platforms. I wrote a post on my Facebook page last week to ask if anyone would be interested to read it if I started blogging again. I was really touched by the response! So here we are!
Thank you guys so much for encouraging me, and sharing your thoughts with me. Truly, it means more to me than I can express. So all I hope for now is that you will enjoy what I will share here, and that you will not hesitate to by shy about commenting on my posts here! ❤️ Whether you want to ask a question, offer some insight, or just say hi — everything is welcome! I always look forward to comments from you guys!
The interaction I have with you guys is what really keeps me going when it comes to sharing online. I am always grateful when people take a moment to show their appreciation, or share something from their own experiences. I learn so much from you guys, and I hope we can continue to do so together!
While I work on getting more content here, here are other places you can follow our updates:
- Jin (behindinfinity) Facebook page
I do regular updates here, from showing work-in-progress photos of our current projects, to first looks at photos from our shoots, as well as live updates when we’re at conventions!
- behindinfinity on Tumblr (or TuxTeam.net)
This is where I post photo sets of our shoots after they’re released on Facebook. Sometimes I would put blog-like posts in here as well.
- skybluedays on Twitter
Probably where I am most random, ahaha!
