ok need a bit of help here. i am off to a uv party next week which apparently consists of uv cannons glow sticks and general mayhem. Now whilst this sounds quite fun imo (i have visions of uv splattered people a la miss congeniality) im slighty worried about what to wear!
im assuming with the uv cannons there is going to be paint everywhere, so my question is- does it come out of clothes?
My idea was to buy a white top from topshop and wear it with something (undecided yet) so at least if it got ruined it wouldnt be so bad and that way i could cover it in uv paint to my hearts content, however i dont really know what i would wear it with and i have nothing i am willing to sacrifice to uv paint skirt/pant wise. So now my question is- will this paint come out of clothing?
Im just a bit sceptical about wearing my favourite skirt out only to find that the paint doesnt come out and its ruined, then again i dont want to look about 12 in the plainest thing i can find as im worried it will get ruined lol
so really i have 2 questions
1 does the paint come out of clothes
2 any suggestions of what to wear to still look hot but not worry about getting stuff on my clothes (i usually wear skirts out so would be thinking along the skirt and top line)


thankies

xx

Yeah, it doesn't stain, it just dries up and turns into flakes which you can get off with a warm sponge...

Glow stick stuff doesn't though. It ends up looking slightly like semen.

They have cool neon tops in New Look for £8 that are great to get ruined

at a uv party I organised it came out if you soaked it straight after you got home.
But not if you left it till the next day.
We used toxic uv paint though, so the UV cannon one will probs be wash-out.

If you have a primark, go and pick a skirt up from there. If it gets stained, it won't be that much of a problem as it's so cheap

How do you know they were made in sweatshops?

If they really are, then obviously it's terrible but they are not the first and won't be the last. [I'm not saying this excuses Primark in anyway.]
As I didn't know I can hardly be blamed for suggesting it.

There are many other alternatives shops anyway.

I'm playing, they are, but so is everything on the high street.
It's kinda a joke, they're all as bad as one another. I love charity shops! :yep:

Sorry I got so defensive, just worried about being branded a monster lol.
I know a lot of shops have been accused of using them, just never heard about Primark :redface:

yus its in commons or somewhere like that (common karbon kushion you would have thought they would have come up with something a bit more off the K theme!)
lol but yes next tues it is apparently i have no idea im just going where im told to go and have been told its a uv party!
i think a primark outfit is in order! dont want to run the risk of ruining something i actually like and as for soaking it when i get in- chances are slim to none ill even realise im covered in uv paint and probably will just crawl into bed lol so thats a no go!
dont really have any money to be shopping now though but ah well!

Id tell you just to get a top - I think the fabric of most skirts and jeans is fine but it's the material of a top which the UV paint seems to sink into and stick...have a good time maybe I'll catch you there!

deffo hitting primark i think. im thinking a top and leggings or even a top and shorts as i figure it comes off skin easier than clothes! least if i buy 3 pound leggings and a long top thing then if its ruined its not such a big deal. Same goes with the shorts cant really go wrong with a pair of black shorts and a top.
i know its a uv party but im not wanting to go all in the flouro dress theme as i just dont think i can pull that kind of thing off, am also worried about my shoes- i have a fav pair of shoe boots but worried it wont come off them either but reallly cant afford a new pair of shoes!

How did it go? I wanna go to one but don't know about clothes, being blinded, how it works, drinks being poisoned! And my hair? Being blonde isn't easy when it comes to these things!

It normally comes out for me. But wash it straight away to give it the best chance of coming out.

what about white skinny jeans and white plimsolls (which you can get from primark/new look) that way if they do get ruined then it is not a lot of money that you have thrown away
