Okay Ladies and Gentlemen, here is my new about to be "it" product (about to be because it's not in my hands just yet)...
I had heard forever ago about something referred to as "butt glue" for models, swimmers, and gymnasts to keep those bottoms properly secured on their tushes and now it looks like I have found it and loads of uses for it as well! I see this as being cosplay GOLD. This particular product is not for swimmers or anywhere one might get wet because it washes off with water. From the reviews I am reading it also is no good if you work up a sweat, which makes sense.
It can be used for holding thigh highs up (oh rejoice because I can't stand walking around in garters all day), gauze bandages, wigs (I am guessing a little dab at the hair line), shoulder straps, light theatrical makeup, slippery bra straps, tube tops, tops of arm warmers, tops of gloves/glovelets, leg warmers, strapy shirts, the bottoms of shirts, I can think of so much more...
I am thinking this will be amazing for my Supergirl. The top tends to pop up so I had to pin it to my bra at NYCC with this product I might be able to stick the front down and have it stay where I want it to. The skirt is also just low enough to show half of my tattoo so maybe I can stick it up a little higher in the front and let the spandex do some work. I bought tattoo coverup makeup, but because it covers half of the tattoo I am afraid of ruining the skirt with the makeup if it rubs off.
I am concerned about the water issue. Living on a island we have damp weather here. One of my big problems with fashion tape is that sometimes it doesn't stick to my skin because the weather is too humid. I think at $2 to $7 a pop this product is certainly worth a shot. However, do NOT buy it on eBay. The one seller is selling the same $7.50 2oz bottle from Amazon for $14 plus shipping... it pays to take a look around or let me do it for you. I like researching. ;o)
Seriously, give me something to find and I will find it. It might not be ideal, but I will find it.
