Vein tips?

soo, i'm dressing up as a Silent Hill Nurse for Animazement this year. i went to Metrocon as the Crowbar Nurse(nickname), and a fellow cosplay friend(female) painted the veins on my body using pax, and it looked good!

my problem is this year i'm going with my boyfriend and his cousin. and i'm most certainly NOT sitting in those...compromising positions with the cousin! so that leaves boyfriend, as a lot of the angles are very difficult for me, like trying to do the right side of my body, back of my legs and arms, and my chest. while he is quite familiar with Silent Hill and it's nurses, he doesn't have a lot of artistic experience.

so i was hoping for some tips on how to make it easier for him, and to help ensure a decent result. me painting the majority of the veins is a last resort. information on the materials: regular no tack pros aide, and the paint colors i have are red, blue, black and brown. i will probably get disposable painting brushes...nice thin ones.

thanks guys!

Honestly? I'd recommend letting your cousin do it, if you're happy with how it turned out last time. I mean, your boyfriend shouldn't have a problem with it because s/he is family. Just my opinion.

KaytieKat97, it's not her cousin but his cousin........
Best way to paint veins is to look up photos of actual veins. It ends up looking much more realistic

thank you for pointing it out for me animenerd...XD it most definitely was not the cousin who painted them last time, but a female friend for a different convention.

i suppose i could pull up pictures of the movie Nurses, since that's kinda what they are based on...i do know the trick of painting over the actual veins, but let's face it, you can't always see all of them(now that'd be a weird super power...O.o)

i suppose so. plus i have some pictures of the previously painted veins, which may make a good reference....bwahahaha, i just imagined walking into the hotel to check in, covered in my veins...XD it does tend to weird people out, especially out of costume. love it. and their reactions to my beautiful crowbar. which reminds me, i needa post pictures online...

plus, a part of me reeeeally wants to trust the Silent Hill knowledgeable fan in him...he's played most of the games, and what not, so i generally trust him to understand this stuff. i'd like to trust him to KNOW what is disturbing and humanly unnatural and whatnot.
