This is seriously awesome! How did it hold up at the con?

It held up really well. Only had to touch up the parts I kinda rush over. I actually only put a very thin layer on my hands for the comic con because I knew I would be shopping and I'm sure the comic book vendors probably don't want face paint all over their merchandise. But if I wear it to an anime convention I'd paint my hands like I did here.
How is this paint serving you?
The color looks awesome, but did it take a thousand coats? Lol.
I'm trying to do a fullbody with this color and with airbrushing.

This was only like two coats (one coat on fingers, and thinned out more for the palm of my hand). The paint I used (Snazaroo) comes in a dry cake and I just used a damp sponge to apply it. It seemed to dry almost instantly but for the first 45 minutes it rubbed off easily until it was "fully dry." My advice, use makeup setting spray or hairspray, and avoid water like the plague - assuming you use water-based paint. I'm using it next weekend so I can let you know how it holds up at all-day conventions.

Just thought of something else. Apply any prosthetic pieces first. I applied the paint to my hand before I started on the webbing here and putting spirit gum on top of the paint was a bad idea - the spirit gum was more slippery than usual and I had blue lines between my fingers for the next two days. LOL.
