Ah body paint. A fun make up tool in cosplay, and also the bane of most cosplayer’s existence. I say that because unless you choose the right body paint, you’re gonna have a irritating time. As in, not being able to touch anything, when you sweat bits and pieces will run off, and not to mention it is hard as hell to get off.
So what could possibly be the solution to do this problem? Simple. A different body paint brand.
Got your attention now? Great!
This paint is called Mehron! It comes in several different colors and is a powered filament based so it’s not cakey and extremely irritating. And it’s just activated with a touch of water.
With this paint you can do a whole entire cosplay, for example my Sally cosplay. Her skin is completely blue right? Well, I had to use that paint and paint my body that exact color and I had a full con day to go to.
So, I used my blue Mehron paint and it stayed on the whole entire day without any issues too!
I don’t think it comes in spray paint form, so it can be a bit hard to apply at times, but good Kami does it do a good job. Plus it’s quite cheap on Amazon. Heck, I may even do an article sometime on body paint tricks. I know I would have found that handy when I was just starting out.
Welp, that’s it for this article! Wanna talk more about Mehron and how awesome it is? Just leave me a comment below!
