This is for dying your skin for larp or other costuming stuff
I played a half troll prostitute in a LARP (live action roleplay). And I hated the way creme paints felt on my skin. I hated the way they stained clothes. I hated that no one could touch me. I also dye my hair a lot and one time when I was cleaning dye off my face I figured.. oh! Why not?! And since then I started to use hair dye to stain my skin green for larp. It only rubbed off on clothes if I sweated a lot, and it didn't rub off on other people.
You have to use Manic Panic hair dye! It is a vegan brand and thus non toxic to the skin. If you have sensitive skin do NOT do this.
Do not put around eyes, eyebrows, or private bits.
If while dying your skin starts to sting, you develop a rash, or get hives, wash off right away and consult a doctor
Before you start dying your skin for the event day you should do a test piece. I'd suggest your legs/back of your calves or someplace no one else will see if you get a rash. As with hair dying do this test 24 hours before hand.
Also if you are doing the vast majority of your body (as I did) you will need a towel to sit down

A helpful and patient friend!!
1: Shower before hand. Scrub yourself till your red. You want all the dead skin and oil off of you.
1: When you are ready to get rid of it just take a nice hot shower and scrub it off. You might still have some dyed spots around your elbows, knees and eyebrows (if you were brave enough to do them). However after a night's sleep and another shower you should be fine.
Always plan ahead and make sure you have at least 24 hours before you have to work or go to school. (Or don't care like I do! :D)
I usually ended up still having dyed armpits, knees, and elbows.
