Hey guys. With Halloween coming up I was wondering have any of you ever used body paint before? Can you recommend a brand of paint to use? I went to the local craft store and I saw a bunch of water based paints but they were more for crafts. I asked a lady who works there and she pointed me to the kids face paint (also water based) which was expensive. Any suggestions? Thanks

Is it for a lady to go naked, but painted as if she's wearing clothes? If so pics.

A film fan forum might be good for this, I bet amateur film makers would know the good quality stuff to use. I know a few burlesque dancers also, so will ask them.

No its for me. Haha. I just asked my friend who had body paint done before and his friend did use theatrical stuff on him, Ben Nye paint, but I don't know where to get it besides online.

A burlesque girl recommended Snazaroo, she does a lot of horror/ rock burlesque themed acts so uses body paint quite a lot.

Thanks for the suggestion. I settled on getting liquid latex body paint. A lot of sex shops carry that. Haha. I heard it is so much easier and cleaner to remove than regular body paint.

I had great interest in painting and I want to participate in painting competition that is going to held next month in our school. It is the first time I am participating in a competition. Please suggest me best body paint of reasonable rate that has also no any side effects.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
