Or maybe 93% better? 128%? A more modest 78%? I’m not going to crunch the numbers here, but I can definitely state that Twitter user @kasyuu’s trick for adding a face to anime cosplay—best when you’re posing for pics and not walking around, but hey, maybe swinging around foam weapons has left you with high arm endurance—is pretty damn spiffy. Just load a pic of your character’s face onto a tablet, line it up so it matches with the rest of your cosplay (still gotta do that hair), and voila! Instant giant eyes/practically non-existent nose/anime tears/blush lines/tiny mouth/huge screaming mouth (circle as applicable).
