Beautiful cosplay! I'm working on my She Hulk cosplay for next Comic Con around here. I'm 6'1 and she is so my woman! I have a few questions if you don't mind. You see, I'm just joined the wonderful world of cosplay and I'm still learning. I've seen your page, you definitely seem to know what you're doing.
First, I saw in a previous comment, you said you used PAX for the arms. I was just thinking of using tights for my legs (Really long legs!) and arms and then just paint my face. I would love to paint my arms if I could get away with it. How well did that stay on and how long do you think it will stay on. I'm sure as you know, Comic Con is an all day event and I do decide to paint my arms, I would like to be running to the bathroom as little as possible to touch up, ya know? And one thing I've always noticed about other cosplayers is how it rubs off near the leotard and comes off in the armpits. Same with the face paint you used? How well and how long?
Secondly, where did you find your leotard? I ordered a purple spandex leotard but wasn't thinking how to get that white stripe on and now I'm realizing I have to idea how to get the white strip on. Any suggestions? Do you think a white belt will work just fine?
Lastly, I'm assuming you're wearing tights for the legs? Where did you get them? They're perfect. I can't find any without the "shorts" pattern on it. Or what kind are they so I know what to look out for?
Wow! It sounds like you'll be an amazing She-Hulk.
The PAX paint definitely stays on very well, except for my armpits- but I think this is because I used a deodorant that ate away at it. It was actually HARD to take off, and you need the remover for it, so just be careful. The face paint is Ben-Nye with a top coat of powder, and then final seal. It stayed very well, but of course a little rubbed off around the neck.
I made the leotard myself, and it was actually a tedious process because I didn't use a ready made pattern and had to make a bunch of adjustments. if you want to intsert the white part into a pre-existing leotard, I would suggest you cut out the section of the leotard that you want to be white, and use that piece as a pattern to cut out the white part (adding a small seam allowance), and then sew that piece back in. Another option would be to use fabric paint, but I don't think that would look as nice.
The tights are white dancer's tights (I used Capezio specifically) that I dyed to match. I think my friend was able to find tights without the line on WeLoveColor (I believe the Microfiber solid tights). I'm sure you could shoot them an email and ask which of their tights have that control-top line on the thigh.
Oh my goodness! Thank you so much for answering! You're amazing! And I will definitely take all this into mind. Our Comic Con isn't until summer (Usually in August) so I have plenty of time to plan but because of that gamma radiation, I want to do some test runs. Haha. I will definitely let know if I have any questions! Thanks again!
Now with this pic in the light I can see the whole package including the the gorgeous color of purple in your outfit. Stunning!! Nice job with your body paint. You have used the right shade of green for it and your wig looks great!! The only little, and I mean little, touchup would to use some dark purple lipstick Just for a nice tease to the men!!
I hope I don't sound like a pervert or anything, but you look extraordinarily sexy in this picture! Seriously, the body paint looks perfect, your hair looks perfect, your outfit complements your figure and your face looks very pretty.
I used PAX for the arms, and ben nye cream makeup set with powder and Final Seal sprayed over it for my face. PAX paint is PAX adhesive mixed with acrylic paint, and there are a few tutorials online on how to use it!
