So I'm nearly finished with a cosplay for Hiei
from Yu Yu Hakusho. (The short guy, not the dragon, for those of you not familiar.) Usually, he keeps his right arm bandaged to contain the power of his dragon or...something (the show was never very clear on that particular aspect of his backstory), but as I'm not entirely sure I can make the bandages happen, I'm looking into tattoo pens to just have someone draw the dragon on me as a Plan B. And having never shopped for such things before, I have no clue where to look.
My priorities are as such, in order of importance:
1. Easy removal: I have other short-sleeved costumes planned for the con I'm attending that do not
involve dragons winding their way around my dominant arm, so I can't use anything that takes days to wear off or leaves stains. I want something I can clean up with soap, water, and a washcloth.
2. Durability, I suppose: Something that won't flake off or start fading fifteen minutes after I get out of my hotel room. I don't want to have to reapply while I'm on the con floor, basically.
3: Quick drying: Not like, insta-dry, necessarily, I just don't want to have to worry about smudging it if I go to put on my wig right after it's done.
I've seen tutorials suggesting to use liquid eyeliner for this sort of thing, which would fit all my needs if I used a good brand, but as far as I know, it only comes in teeny tiny bottles with teeny tiny brushes, and that's not really feasible for a design like Hiei's. Any suggestions?
