It's been awhile since I posted or made a topic here what with college and all but as the semester draws closer to the end I find that I am starting to try to settle upon a new cosplay to attempt.
This led me to make this topic. Ill admit that the things I know, I KNOW. But the things I dont know about...well I REALLY dont know about. One of these is makeup. I try but I know when its time to study up.
Here is the problem. I am considering doing The Dark Prince from Prince of Persia The Two Thrones for a cosplay. I have figured out ways to change eye color, make my body produce a sandy smoke, how to glow, etc.
But sadly Im having trouble with body color.
The Dark Prince's skin is a dark almost pitch black. I have considered liquid latex but have already ruled it out due to how rubbery and wet it looks. I also have ruled out a sheer body suit dyed black due to getting runs and overall fragility.
This leaves me with literally painting or dye-ing my skin. Now in the past with body coloring to become tan I have found that I , as I grew hot or become moist in any manner, would smear makeup on items and clothing.
I wish to dye or paint my skin with cosmetics without having to worry a lot about rubbing off makeup on con goers or vendor wares by accident.
A dye job sounds in order for this but I really dont know about safety nor about removal procedure for body dyeing so I implore the advice of you the dedicated cosplay cosmetologists. How can I turn my skin black safely?
