Which Akatsuki character is the most popular to cosplay and why?

What are some common mistakes to avoid when putting together an Akatsuki cosplay?

Each Akatsuki member has different characteristics and outfit details. The black cloak with red clouds is a key element and you need to make sure it has the length from your shoulders to your knees.

The common mistakes, aside from the length of the cloak, also happen mostly on the makeup and wigs. Make sure you cosplay your preferred character with the cloak as well as the right makeup style -such as eye color, and the style and color of the wig.

Are there any tips for applying Akatsuki-style makeup, especially the eyes?

The most important tip is to always prep your face because it is key. To protect your skin, invest in a primer and setting spray and use eyeliners and eyeshadow correctly to make your eyes look larger and more ‘alive.’

Brush on eyeshadow around your eyes using softer and lighter shades to accentuate the appearance of most anime eyes. Then use colored contact lenses based on each Akatsuki character carefully.
