Silver(ish) Skin? (Scarecrow from Arkham Asylum)

Sorry if there's already a thread for this, but I'm at a bit of a loss. My boyfriend is doing a Scarecrow cosplay from Arkham Asylum, but the main issue is that his skin is kind of a silvery color. We're not sure how to achieve that.

(It's huge, I know)

So far we're toying with trying Baby Powder or the like, but we'd really like to find something inexpensive that a) Won't be too hard to get off, or b) Won't be impossible to keep on. I'm not sure if he's planning on being shirtless during the rest of the con, but I'd rather save housekeeping the trouble of silver sheets.

I'm not seeing silver. I'm seeing a shiny copper...I think you might be best off buying a bodysuit and airbrushing it to the right color for the muscles. it would be easier than applying bodypaint every single time you wear it.

The main problem with that would be actually not only aquiring the suit, but getting it to be the right shade and to make it look like flesh. I'm alright with using body paint or the like, I"m just not sure of the easiest and (cheapest) way to go about doing it.

The best way for a bodysuit is to buy a flesh colored one and airbrush the color on.

I googled copper bodypaint, and apparently they sell liquid latex in copper. Warning, there are some skimpy girls...http://www.amazon.com/Mr-S-Leather-L.../dp/B002KIS9CG

If you're totally set on painting, I would suggest Mehron bodypaint or aquacolor. http://www.fxsupply.com/kryolan_catalog/aquacolor.html You're going to have to have at LEAST 3 colors. One being the base color, one for shadows, and one shiny paint.

Baby powder will NOT stay on, it's a powder is white, it would be too flaky and easy to rub off.
