Kabuki Face Challenge

Geisha’s Blade has always been in love with Japanese tradition, culture, and arts. Included in their list is kabuki, as a lot of popular stories about samurai and historical events in Japan have been played in its theaters. Kabuki is not only known for the stylization of its drama, but also for the elaborate makeup worn by some of its performers.

At Geisha’s Blade, we’ll give you a chance to become a Kabuki performer and get an opportunity to win a free sword with our “Kabuki Face Challenge!”

Check out the entries here.


• Simply paint your face like a kabuki performer with makeup or whatever you have available. Just make sure you don’t use something toxic that would put your health at risk. Then take a photo of your kabuki face and email it to us.

• No sword is required to join this contest, but you must be at least 18 years old and a resident of the Philippines to join. Wearing a wig is a plus and other props you can use (e.g. horns, contact lenses, etc). No need to wear a costume as you’ll only be taking a photo of your kabuki face.

• Once your photo entry has been approved and uploaded on our Facebook page, you need to share it publicly on your timeline with the caption:​​

• There’s no restriction in the design, pattern, or color of your makeup.  Overall, it should be considered a “kabuki” and not a “face painting”. Be very creative, your face is your canvas!
