Hi! This is kind of a poll.

I am going to be cosplaying the Spirit Healer, which is only present in the game if you die. You have a chose to find your dead body and return to it or ask her to revive you.
How ever I came upon a stump in the road to what body paint to get. White or light blue.

I prefer the white because in most cases you see her as a white ghostly figure (never once have I seen her light blue). I want others options on this before I make it final.

Whether she's white (rather grey) or blue probably depends on your video settings. I definitely say she's light blue, though.

All my video settings are on default and she looks white every time I look at her. I died a couple of times in different areas and the only time see looked light blue was as a human.

I was one of three spirit healers at Blizzcon 2010, we all had blue skin. The wing color varied however. I modeled mine off of the image from the WoW Model Viewer which looks like this:

Here's some pictures of the different cosplays:

I don't know where the option is in the new video settings, but do you have death effects turned on? (I'm not sure what default video settings are) The one that makes your screen go practically black and white when you die? I think how you see them is going to depend on that.

The second spirit healer linked had more of a greyish slightly blue color:

The second one is me. The unitard I chose is called "Smokey Blue" and the wings were painted to match. In the picture you linked the spot light on the floor really washed out the color.

Let me just say that color matching different fabrics and then trying to tie in matching makeup is something I told myself I'd try to avoid at all costs in the future :)

Her skin and wing tone is blue because she is translucent. If you want to make an impact, get a tealish blue (for your whole body as a base) and a navy body paint, mix some of the teal blue into the navy, and do the shading effect on the body paint with a shading sponge. If you do it all one color (like most people do, probably for ease), you will look very flat and opaque. Same with the wings -- use a wire frame and sheer fabrics, then more opaque white material on the feather tips. You can do this just by layering material (blue base, layer black or white on top for shading) and hot gluing it. Hope this helps.

Don't forget she also has two pairs of wings, too. Her wing setup is like a butterfly.

@Nozze: That's a very good point... I never noticed that. But I would definitely say she is blue. Yeppers.

I have the wings practically done. However, the version I am going after is the one when you die and see her. She is Translucent and very white with highlights of blue.
The pic below is the screen shot from my game.

She's definitely blue. Even if it's just after you die, she's still a transparent blue. Her clothing is white, but not her skin :)
