View Full Version : Greed, specifically ultimate shield help (Brotherhood SPOILERS)

08-12-2011, 12:49 AM
Hey everyone, first post here but not first cosplay. My first was Zero from Vampire Knight and second was Chris Redfield from Resident Evil. However, this is the first time I've needed to use any kind of make-up/body modification aside from hair dye, so I'm kind of at a loss. Anyway, I plan on going to Dragon*con in Atlanta as Greed #2, and I want to have one forearm covered in the Ultimate Shield. I'm thinking either using body paint or liquid latex, as I've seen both options used. I prefer the latter, but I'm also on a bit of a time constraint (as well as having no clue what I'm doing with the stuff) since Dragon*con is the first weekend of September. So finally to my question; is there any way to find enough liquid latex in a local store (Party/craft stores, etc) to both figure out how to use the stuff and do a proper paint job, or would I be better off going with the body paint since it's just one forearm, maybe a bit more if I'm feeling bold.

P.S. I have some other parts I still need to work on, and if anyone has the time and is willing to answer some potentially simple/cosplay noobish questions, please PM me or let me know if I can PM you. Thank you for your time!
