Kane the Nagai
« on: Oct 19, 2012, 06:06 PM »
so i've decided that for my kit i'd like to have a Nagai as my base.

Nagai, or "knives", are a species from the firefist satilite galaxy who invaded the "skyriver" and caused some havoc ;)

like their nickname suggests, they love knives :laugh:

they were known to the galaxy before their invasion, but awareness of the near-humans was limited...

for this i'll need black hair spray-on dye (short term stuffs :P) and white makeup... (AKA flour :laugh:)

what say ye?

Could work. I'd go with a wig though, as it would be hard to both paint your skin and then darken your hair. If you can get a wig, you can put your real hair into a tight fitting net, paint your face up, then place the wig on.

Don't the nagai also have pointy ears? In my story about Cando his mando mentor is a Nagai, and I wrote him a lot like Leonard Nimoy, not spock...but Nimoy himself. It was a fun and interesting character :)

Dang it! i forgot the whole "angular features" thing :( hopefully only the ears are notably angular, otherwise i'll need a fake nose :P

judging from the reference pics, the nose and chin aren't that angular so my natural face should pass muster.

looking at them again, i've gotta say... Cando you've ruined me. all i see is spock now :rolleyes:

After the surrender, the Nagai were given Saijo to settle on. Only a few did so, joining the Alliance; the others (accompanied by the Mandalorians) went to liberate Nagi from the Tofs.

Nagai and mandos really do go hand in hand :P

Nah, Vulcans don't dress nearly as cool as that. I love the Nagai. I just want you be prepared for those who don't know about the nagai, you will get a lot "Hey, look! A Vulcan Mandalorian!"

Some people just don't get it, but...if you dress like that, have hair like that, knives like that, nobody will make the connection :)

You might be better off with pancake makeup? I know it's greasier,  but flour? If you sweat at all it's gone...

Try looking here.

http://www.clownantics.com/clown-makeup/ben-nye-makeup-71-1-c.html

I was just looking into and buying supplies for a drow cosplay and many in my group recommended the Ben Nye make up and the neutral setting powder to keep it from rubbing off. You'd be going opposite of what I'm doing with drow, but should work the same with appropriate colors.

Also, here's a link from the same group for ears:

been doing some research and i keep running into Arkanian Offshoot :-X. i was never really sure about nagai in the first place (though they were always my first choice).

maybe i should keep looking for other species before i decide :rolleyes: (there's something about putting on clown makeup that keeps me from really enjoying the idea of a nagai kit... well, that and 40 dollar ear addons :-X)

The ears shouldn't be that big a problem if you know where to look ;) depending on the size you want you can get em for around $12 or $15

Look for ear tips instead of full ears then. They usually come in a variety of sizes and the smaller ones are pretty subtle.
