San is one of the primary characters in Studio Ghibli’s Princess Mononoke, and her costume is popular with cosplayers. Roxy of RoxyRocksTV recently dressed as Princess Mononoke and she’s put together four videos going over each part of the costume. She released the first video today and she discusses how to do San’s hair and makeup. She wears a wig for the costume, and the first minute of the video shows how she pins her long hair. It’s worth watching for that alone just so you can see how easy it is to wear a wig. Roxy then goes over all the steps for applying makeup and provides details on each of the products used in the video’s description.
Keep with Roxy’s latest costumes and projects at Facebook.
