Is there any product or something that makes you tan only until you wash it off? I don't want to walk around school looking like the sun goddess. It wouldn't be so bad if I didn't have this terrible set of tan lines (dubbed Band Lines)!

Try using spray on stockings for your body, and darker makeup for your face? and then... maybe some body-makeup sealant? o.o;;;

Isn't there some self-tanning stuff.. um.. like that bronzing lotion?.. Doesn't that make you tanner?.. well.. either that, or like make-up and stuff...

I'm afraid I've never heard of any wash off tan products. I understand you not wanting that sudden tan goddess look, but the only things that would pass for a tan is some kinda makeup or...stockings?? sorry.. -_-``

I know you can get full body tights, but they're really expensive. Those spray-on tights for legs, will they work on the rest of the body? Because I know those wash off.

For my Gerudo costume, I used some bronzing creme that I bought from Walgreens. It was okay..but it only made my skin about a shade darker. I think you should buy dark theatrical makeup..like Ben Nye powder..and use that. It will probably work alot better. For your legs, you could just wear dark stockings.

I can't really do stockings because I'm wearing lyrical sandals with a thong between the toes. I can get the spray-on stockings. I only need my skin a shade darker because I'm pretty dark already. Would it be a good idea to use a sunless tanner that shades a little per application to even out, then use the bronzing cream?

You could also try the airbrush tanning..they do it at quite a few places. It can be full body or just the areas you want filled in. I had it done full body and the cost was about $25. It only lasted 2-3 days. Be sure to get it done the day before you need it because you won't be able to shower for 12 hours and most have a darker coating that helps the tan set. It washes off easily when you shower.

If you are somewhat tan already, you might only need the bronzer. If it doesn't make you dark enough you could always apply multiple coats. Also, if you decide to buy some you might want to test it out before going to a con.

Yeah I think I'm going to use a bronzer lotion. I'm not getting an air brush tan. I had a friend get one of those and I'm not exaggerating, she turned the color of the little AIM guy under our names. And it was like that for a couple weeks.

Wow..really? I never had any problems with mine but i guess it all depends on where you go and what product they use. It usually only lasts for a few days..that's odd.
