I have to say that we here at Look Glam Box were just as intrigued as everyone else with the barbie and anime looking girls. So we decided to look around a little more to see whether they are just one off phenomenons or whether there are a lot more out there we do not know about.

According to the Urban Dictionary, cosplay means “literally “Costume Play.” Dressing up and pretending to be a fictional character (usually a sci-fi, comic book, or anime character).
That is one hell of a costume (and we think it is super cool too).

Well we can’t get away with not mentioning Halloween and we found this very talented makeup artist Angie Starling plying her craft to look just right for the night:
“On average, she spends around six to seven hours on her videos for makeup looks but for her spectacular Halloween faces, she spends upwards to 30 hours teaching viewers how to get the look just right.
She described the Halloween how-to-guides, as ‘quite the labor of love, At least 20-30 hours per video from conception, to visualization, going an finding products and costumes.’
‘It’s something I really love to do so it doesn’t bother me … I have a vision and I want to do it.'”
