Hi! I'm looking up air compressors for airbrushing troll makeup, and the only ones I can find that are for makeup are a max of 15 psi. I know in an earlier post you said somewhere around 30 psi is what you use. Will it make any difference as to how to makeup looks or will it take longer to apply if the psi is 15?
Hello! Slight disclaimer this kid did most of the research before purchasing our airbrush machine so I always like to direct people to him for more knowledge but just from my experience in general… first of all you have to match the psi to whatever your airbrush can handle. For doing anything besides light airbrushing (like painting a model or something), you definitely want something with a greater output. I imagine that 15 PSI would take forever to paint someone’s body. (I believe ours is over 40 and it still takes quite awhile) Makeup compressors are gentle with the intention for using on someones face, for body your probably gonna want to look more into the realm of compressors used for larger scale art. You have to think of it in terms more like painting a car (ok maybe bad example haha) as opposed to a compressor used for fine detail painting. I know there are a ton of guides to purchasing the right compressor for your airbrush out there you just have to do a bit of research. And I would try looking around ebay or amazon there were a ton on there we found when looking! Used is probably your best option if you can find one cost wise. Ours is a modded compressor from an old art student and it works great. (and is small enough to lug around to con hotel rooms lmao) Best of luck finding a compressor that works for you!
Hello! Your Asuka wig looks amazing! I was wondering, do you have any tips for keeping long wigs from frizzing and tangling throughout the day?
Hello and thank you so much! ;w; Honestly a lot of it has to do with the quality of the wig. Poor quality wigs are going to tangle and frizz a lot easier than ones made out of nice fibers. I don’t cosplay a ton of long haired characters mostly because long wigs are the bane of my existence lmao it’s next to impossible to go through a whole day without it getting a bit frazzled haha. Personally and this probably looks a bit weird to onlookers but I will try and hold the ends of my wig when I am walking around esp if it is windy and stuff like that. I also constantly run my fingers though my wig and I think that helps keep any major tangles out throughout the day. My Asuka wig is pretty nice I didn’t have any tangling problems but I’ve had some really bad wigs in the past where I’ve had to take more extreme measures. I know some people will suggest motions oil sheen and conditioning spray (or some other form of detangler) which I’ve used in the past and it works pretty well, but you have to keep in mind wig hair is not real hair so be SUPER careful because it will make your wig look greasy really fast. I usually just use it on the underside of wigs when needed. Conditioning wigs can help a ton as well. A few really troublesome wigs I’ve given a fabric softener bath, that stuff works wonders on nasty wigs I know there are a lot of tutorials out there you can find on google. Also when brushing out wigs I find it easiest to use a super wide tooth comb and work from the very bottom up, otherwise you risk damaging the fibers. That’s probably more info than you wanted but I hope it helps! :3
just curious, what is your sexuality?

Just as a side note though it’s SUPER CREEPY to me that tumblr just takes my selfie and throws in on random people’s dashes. I don’t know promoted posts in general give me a weird intrusive vibe maybe it’s just me haha.
