La Muerte Body Paint

So I'm in the process of working on my La Muerte cosplay for Katsucon. And recently I've started to really look at body paint brands since i need such a considerable amount of it. I wanted to get opinions on the brands listed below, their pros and cons, how opaque the paint ison the skin, its staying power/longevity, any useful things to know about the brands themselves, etc

Graftobian - specially the propaints
Mehron - specifally the Paradise Makeup AQ
Diamond FX

i personally use only wolfe fx and kryolan~ they are my fav to use by far! They are a little pricey, esp wolfe, but their colors last super long and they are high pigment! I use the water activated cakes from both, tho i have only used white in wolfe, but they are 2 coats only for a super even white surface! you def need sealer sprays but i love them~ i can show you a test of the white tomorrow if you want

All are good brands

Graftobian ProPaint and Paradise AQ (glycerine base) are alike - Graftobian is richer in color, deeper pigment, I use both but more Paradise, just because Graftobian is new (2014) and it has just not yet worked alot into my kit.

Wolfe and Diamond (wax base) are alike - I use Wolfe

Kryolan Aquacolor(glycerine base) is more like the Graftobian and Mehron, rich colors, but a softer makeup.

You can combine these brands, say Paradise for the white base and Wolf for the gold lines.
The softer glycerin based brands are easy to bo bases and wax base brands are good for details.
