I usually use the Ben Nye creme line, but that's just because it's the only form of Goldenrod they have.

My brother and I are going as Finn and Jake, which is totally awesome b/c he's going to be Finn and is six-five, and I'm going to be Jake and I'm 4-11 so the size difference makes it work.

I am actually going to be using snazaroo paint as it is the closest color I could find from one of the big companies for doing a magicman cosplay. I haven't bought it yet so I guess I can look at the Ben nye stuff again, anyone wanna help me choose? XD

And awesome! We needed a Finn and Jake, kind of makes the whole thing complete!

WantAGuava: Yea, I guess it just really depends if they have the color in the first place. I usually use the cremes for stubble/facial hair. XD

Wonreii: Dude that's what I was thinking of using too if I can't find any for Ben Nye. XD Magic Man's skin color is almost similar to Huntress/Hunter Wizard's. If I do get some tomorrow, I'll post a pic of the green colors or how ever many light greens I find.

Ok so for my cosplay I am either going with the snazaroo pale green or the Ben nye gecko green. The snazaroo one is closer to the actually color of his skin sk that is what I am leaning towards. Has anyone else ever done large amounts of body makeup? This will actually be my first time xD

I also had an awesome idea today! What do you all think about me getting some custom m&ms with magic man's face on them and also the phrase 'eat it' I would hand them out when people stopped me for pictures

Man, I totally thought Micheal's carried Snazaroo make up. I went today and they said they didn't have it. Oh well, looks like I'm going to have order online. But yea, I'm going to go with the pale green too, maybe mix some white in there. Also, go to Walmart or Ultra because you can find some white sponge wedges in the hair and make up section. They're really cheap and it comes with a lot in a bag. I'm going to be using those to apply my body paint. :3

And that sounds awesome! Go for it man! XD

I know about the wedges, worked in theatre for a while, but i was never a makeup specialist so I just got little tricks along the way. Like getting barrier spray, that shit is AMAZING for keeping your makeup from smudging and getting on stuff
But yeah, the pale green looks good :3 I know i will probably end up getting a shadows and highlights pack of makeup just so my face isnt so flat from just 1 color

Cool, I'll totally look into some barrier spray! I'm always worried about make up coming off. XD
Also, I found this site that sells Snazaroo in single colors!
http://www.facepaint.com/vendors/sna...t-632-1-c.html
They also sell a lot of other brands and sizes of Snazaroo.

Also, I kind of need some advice. Should I just paint my nails the same color as my skin? My design for Hunter Wizard is one half fingered glove so both hands are exposed. I think it would look weird if they were any other color. And I guess I'm just going to paint my lips with the body paint as well. I considered dark green or black paint for the nails but that might look too feminine maybe. XD

I would say go slightly lighter on your fingernails. I have the same issue as magicman has exposed fingers and i plan on going with with the same color as my skin or slightly lighter. Gunna have to test it out some and see.

Ahh yes, of course. I wasn't thinking of going lighter. XD Thanks! Yea, I think that would look really good/natural. Can't wait to test it out!

Yeah :3
Make sure to get some black and white little ones as well because you can just blend those in and make things look more natural

Does anyone know if Snazaoo is sold in stores? I really don't want to pay $25 for two semi small colors online. That's too much money for what I need. -_-

Try browsing on Amazon for some Snazaroo, it's what I usually do c:. And yeah I think you guys should use Snazaroo if you can instead. Ben Nyes a butt to take off and then buy. Snaz sells a lot more for the money uvu....

The M&M idea sounds so adorable! You should do it if you got the funds ovo!

And for fingernails if you really can't find a shade matching I say yeah go a bit lighter if you can't find anything matching. Or a spur idea I have is maybe cutting out leaves to the shape of your fingernails and putting them on, or get some fake nails that have a wood design on them.
