Geekanerd has already taught you how to get some of that Mad Scientist style.
Now, we will teach you, the reader, how to look like a total scary badass, ALL THE TIME.
The secret is: EYE SCAR. Get an eye scar. This is a vertical scar that appears above and below the eye socket.
That's right, an Eye Scar. They're not just for Scar anymore. Though he does have a good one.
Eye Scars say to the world, someone tried to stab my eye out, and it just makes me look cooler. Cable knows it.
You can compliment the scar with a dead-eye, if that works for you. It's makes you look more creepy and villainous, but you risk losing sex appeal. Le Chiffre manages to pull it off.
This is probably going overboard, but you can decide the size of your eye scar yourself.
This is just the beginning. Much more after the jump. You know you're interested.
You don't HAVE to be evil if you have an eye scar. John Locke is a badass, but he's still a good guy. OR IS HE? You can never tell, with eye scars.
Hudson from Gargoyles is a good guy, but there's that edge. He also makes the dead eye work for him. "Grizzled" is an adjective you can often apply to people with eye scars.
Eye scars indicate that even if you're a cool customer like Jet, you are not to be messed with.
Eye Scars are also a good indicator of capacity for evil.
If you put an eye scar on an otherwise inoffensive looking person, like Bullworth Academy student Gary Smith, it's a good indicator of insanity.
Eye scars can be messy....
If you want to push yourself into the realm of "freakishly intimidating", you can make the eye scar REALLY messy.
At this point, the eye scar is just a jumping off point. But be careful; as with all forms of plastic surgery, it's easy to go too far. You don't want to end up like....
...or God forbid, THIS.
As long as you avoid these pitfalls, a good eye scar will inspire intimidation wherever you go. I should know; when I was fifteen, I crashed into a tree and had an eye scar for a good month or so. It was the greatest month of my life, and I was feared and respected by all. It can work for you too!
