Cosplay body paint?

I'm planning on doing a Zetsu cosplay for Anime Central this coming year and I'm having trouble figuring out what type of body paint to use. I'm going to have to paint half of my face black and the other half stark white, plus my arms, neck and hands. It has to be able to withstand an 8 hour con day and take less than an hour to get off, plus not smudge off while I'm wearing it.

I would suggest using Kryolan's Aquacolour because it's light and doesn't smudge. However, many people have suggested Snazaroo or Wolf as well. For your arms and hands, perhaps you can substitute with gloves?
Good, Cheap, or Fast
Pick any two...

If its Good and Cheap, it wont be Fast

def go gloves for your arms and hands. use wolfe or krylon, both in the hydracolor not in the creams. make sure u seal it with a sealing spray (both brands make them!). use snazaroo as a last resort. it works but isnt the best quality.

Use any top brand face and body paint, they do vary and have varied learning curves but nothing with practice you can get the hang off.

I suggest Wolfe Fx as the white is the most opaque on the market. White can be hard to apply but with a good brush Wolfe white will be a great choice.
