Changing my skin colour??
Heya ^^ I was just wondering if anyone would be able to recommend any products for turning my skin brown? I'm hoping to cosplay Yoruichi from Bleach, which will mean I'll need an even brown colouring over pretty much the entire top half of my body (without bad streakiness or runniness :s). I was thinking just either brown face paint or a dark foundation, (very very dark, my skin is pretty much white!) but does anyone have any specific items they've used for this sorta thing that worked well? Unfortunately Im a total cosplay idiot and don't have a clue! ^^,

There's this Loreal stuff that I used to darken my skin for Uriel. It looks natural but probably won't make you look as dark as you're going for.

Still, it does darken your skin and still look natural so I say try that to start ^_^

mmmm, for my part, i'll try with a dark fondation,it would be pretty long, but way much natural.
In 2 or 3 applications, and compact and loose powder between , it would stick on your face and not anywhere else.

With a sponge delicately, and you'll be fine.

you can get the dark fondation at "Bobby brown", it's a make-up for black and color people basically so you wont look grey or orange depending on the lights around you.
(The powder might be "Basic brown 4", or 5), an oil-free fundation (walnut 8-9), and stick fundation (the best)

Definatly foundation for dark skin. It works wonders.

Use that dream matte mousse in the darkest shade, with powder on top, or I'm pretty sure theres a brand for darker skinned make up!

The foundation idea is good, but also you might want to consider applying a dusting of bronzer over every part you've browned? It makes it look a bit more natural and skin-like, as foundation just makes you all one colour and as humans our skin is not all one colour at all! (Whether you use professional face paint, expensive foundation, or cheap foundation, a dusting of loose powder or bronzer in a similar shade to the one your wearing will make the look a lot more natural.)

Careful not to get any of this stuff on your costume hun ^^

I used a theatrical arabian skin makeup for my Marik cosplay; it worked well but I had to go for a relatively low budget option so it came off when I washed my hands. I'm aware that you can get pro stuff that can be removed with an alcohol solution - have no idea how much it would cost though!
If using dark foundation on your skin it may be worth getting some makeup setting spray, which should stop it from running, melting and shifting throughout the day.

Oh yes please don't get it on your clothes. I was unfortuantely wearing white the day I discovered this T_T
