It was super hard to keep it from getting on my clothes, and it actually DID get on sometimes (had to go use water to wipe it off sometimes) What I learned is, you don't have to look WHITE WHITE, you can just use the white skin make up with the pad, add a tiny bit of water, so that it mixes and blends as if you were applying foundation. It'll give you a good pale natural look. Or if you want to WHITE WHITE, I would suggest looking up tutorials on youtube for maybe clown or harley quinn type looks, but they use extra stuff like pre make up skin toners, etc etc. I recommend using the light pale foundation look rather than the all white, you'll end up looking more like a clown than death.
And AWESOME!! Are you going to SDCC? I was planning on going as Death there as well! <3
