RorschachMy favorite holiday of Halloween will be here sooner than you know it, so I’ve been perusing the interwebs in search of some cool costume ideas while there’s still time as I’m such a procrastinator.

I came across this video of someone who made a mask based on The Watchmen character Rorschach. YouTube user guinness0507 utilizes a thermochromic powder that he mixes with a transparent base to create a paint which can then be used on fabrics. When the wearer of the mask breathes and the temperature of the fabric reaches above 86 degrees F, it’ll show a cool “moving” effect similar to that of the Rorschach character.

This isn’t cheap as the powder alone is currently marketed at $45, but is it too expensive or a good investment knowing no one else will probably have it?
