Haha, well everyone's different? I usually only get mine waxed for a clear shape, or I'm too lazy to pluck for 10+ minutes to shape them. Usually they shape themselves, but after a while they begin to lose it, and that's when I get them waxed.

Hmm.. well I'll figure something out! I only need to cover a little bit of my eyebrows, not them entirely.

Evidently, water-based spirit gum works to cover your eyebrows.  I've not tried it yet so I can't speak from personal experience, but that's up in enough places that it's probably worth a try.  :3

Really? I didn't know that. Where do you get spirit gum? Could you get it at Michaels or JoAnn's?

Not really.  Because wigs are composed of wefts (those lines of hair you can see when you turn a wig inside-out), spiking a wig meant to be worn down will result in lovely gaps between the wefts.  There are wigs done specifically for spiked styles, like the ever-popular Punky; I'm pretty sure there are short black wigs out there which come prespiked, but if you're going to cut/style one down, make sure you get something that's meant for those sorts of punked styles rather than being worn down.

Thanks for the tips!  I'll have to look into that.

Sayda, just a warning, if you do use the nose putty, make sure you have plenty of lotion on hand.  The stuff sticks to EVERYTHING, and lotion was the only method I had to cut it.  What I did was put a dab of lotion on a clean wash cloth, then scoop up as much putty as I could (the stuff stuck to my finger too much to apply it that way).  Then I'd rub that on the eyebrow, trying to get as much putty off the washcloth and on the brow as possible.  After that, I smoothed it out with a finger (with lotion; I can't stress that enough).  It had a tendency to crack where the putty met my face, and I couldn't raise my eyebrows or do any other exaggerated expressions (but as Nikki said, I luckily didn't have to XD).  To take it off I put more lotion on a washcloth and scrubbed a bunch.

That putty should be pretty cheap right around/after Halloween, so it might be worth it to get some and experiment.  If you can find a method that looks better/is easier to apply, I'd really like to know about it.  The putty is a bit of a pain. :/

I went to the Halloween store near Washington Square today, but they didn't have any of what I was looking for. I asked the guy, but he couldn't find it.

Thank you for the tip though! I'll keep in mind to use lotion. I only have to cover up a small part of my eyebrows for Axel, and fortunately the part I need to cover doesn't move as much when I make facial expressions, so hopefully it'll all work out and won't crack (as much). If I find another/better method, I'll definitely let you know!

I doubt it.  It's a stage/fx makeup thing, so your best bets would be costume shops or theatrical suppliers.  It's easily ordered online as well.

Oh alrighty. One of my friends the other day pointed out Spirit Gum in Michaels, but I'm not sure if they were just kidding and that the product looked like it, or if it really was Spirit Gum. x.x

I used to work there, and I don't remember ever seeing it. Michaels usually only has crafty costume stuff or cat/dog ears/devil horns, but I would check anyways. The stock always changes according to what's popular.

I need to get started on my Albel Christmas costume....I think I will do it without the claw for that. Because I picture the costume being more relaxed so maybe I will just wrap my arm...

but yeah I need to get red shirt and fabric and white trim.....it wouldn't be too hard. I'm not sure what I want to do for the belt. I don't know if I want the belt to be white or if it should be black (Santa has a black belt >_>) Any suggestions?

Alright I will do that then. I'll also have to get another pair of white stockings and dye them red......but maybe as time gets closer I might be able to find a red pair......hmmmm.....I think I'll wait ;D

I might also need boots (like combat boots).....I don't know what would work with the costume >_>

You could use one of the dressform techniques here on a guy that has a torso bigger than yours, then use that as a frame for your papier mache.
