Fake blood that doesn't stain skin?
Good afternoon, lovelies!
I've got Youmacon coming up on Halloween weekend, and will be debuting two different cosplays. On the first and last days, I will need to coat my hands and forearms in blood up to my elbows. For the middle two days, I will be in a gorgeous gown in a cosplay that has nothing to do with gore.
Therein lies my problem - I need a fake blood that won't stain my skin for the two days in between. Nobody likes a murderous TARDIS. I have an advantage in the convention being at Halloween, so there are numerous Halloween stores springing up around my town. I've been in a few, but the bottles of blood I've found can only recommend that they don't stain clothing, not skin.
I'd be open to any suggestions for brands of fake blood I could buy that you know won't stain skin, or even recipes to make my own. Tried and true recommendations are greatly preferred. If you give me a recipe, please also recommend what you use to transport the fake blood with you after it's made, because I can't seem to think of what to do in that situation!
Thanks so much in advance!
