    This is stupid. He clearly looks like he’s in makeup. Everyone’s reaction is like, “Stupid cosplay freak! Get a decent costume, Derp!

    Being neanderthal is a state of mind not a state of makeup.  Go sell some insurance.

      Wholehearted concurrence.  What a fantastic waste of time and money!

      I’m from Wisconsin, so you can take it from me that a lousy $3 4-pack of some watery pilsner will do the job twice as fast and ten times more cost effecitvely.
