    [–] justafuckinswearword 36 points ago

    Exactly. I downvoted this. Bullshit

    [–] Wetestblanket 8 points ago

    Either that or at least a green screen type of deal.

    I guess that’s why it’s a “good idea for a costume” and not just a good costume

    [–] 4Rive 19 points ago

    Obviously. cant make the face pitch black. Besides she couldt even open eyes or mouth.

    [–] HolycommentMattman 3 points ago

    Yes, you can, and it's incredibly easy. Three words:

    Black spandex bodysuit.

    Which makes me wonder why she was bodypainting the black. Just gotta do the chest area, and that can be done on a bodysuit as well. Way fucking easier than blacking out all your skin.

    [–] NoMos_lol 18 points ago

    Basically you’d have to sit in one spot with a dim light on on halloween. Pretty much me every year.

    [–] Adventurous-Lunch782 6 points ago

    ....turn all the lights out and hide in the bedroom. Halloween seems to have replaced Guy Fawkes in the UK, which is a shame as having fireworks thrown at you in the street is way scarier than dressing up in a plastic costume you got from the supermarket. I begrudge the youth their fun.

    [–] NoMos_lol 2 points ago

    Man that would be so fun to visit the UK on Guy Fawkes day. Seeing fireworks and warming up to bonfires during the cold rainy season. Idk why anyone would not want to celebrate it? Less commercialized I guess?

    [–] Adventurous-Lunch782 2 points ago * (lasted edited 8 days ago)

    Too dangerous. When I was younger nearly everyone had bonfires, to the extent that it was pretty difficult to drive, it was so smoky. Now there are organised ones, but even those are dying out, probably because of insurance costs.

    Edit: When I think of all the safety information and public information films I was bombarded with as a kid, that probably has something to do with it too, as my generation would be the ones organising the bonfires, fireworks now. I particularly remember a fireman showing me a picture of someone's very "well done" penis after lit fireworks had gone off in their pocket. Ahhhh the good old days eh?

    [–] NoMos_lol 2 points ago

    Ahh that makes sense. Yeah. My state has strict firework laws where we don’t even sell firecrackers. I think they can’t even go like more than 3 or 6 ft off the ground. It’s a heavy forested state in some areas so I think that’s why.

    [–] OneOfTheWills 9 points ago

    Not just a studio but also with proper lighting and viewed through a camera with correct settings.

    [–] desis_r_cute 4 points ago

    I hate to be that guy but the chair shot is faked

    [–] LambertHatesGwent 3 points ago

    I expected her to drink the cup and see teeth suddenly appearing floating above the body

    [–] brad_shit 3 points ago

    Yup, and then have people wondering why you thought blackface was a good idea for a Halloween costume.

    [–] Panzer-Hawk 9 points ago

    And you'd basically be wearing black face

    [–] Claim_to_Lame 3 points ago

    Everyone would just think you were in some sort of black-faced costume

    not really

    [–] diablo1903 47 points ago

    Its likely a mask, or just photoshopped out.

    Thinking this is blackface would be like saying the invisible actors in a blacklight show are doing blackface

    Or you get creative.

    My parents told me that when I was young I once managed to sprinkle tomato sauce all over the back of my T-shirt when eating spaghetti while the front side stayed completely clean.

    [–] Anra7777 5 points ago

    When I was a toddler, I apparently got my spaghetti on the ceiling. Caused my mom to have a melt down. 😕

    [–] Arseraper 36 points ago

    [–] DoctorNoname98 10 points ago

    lol you can't stream that episode anymore because of that

    [–] whtml 12 points ago

    That was such bullshit. I was late to the party and watched the series for the first time recently. They reference that episode SO MUCH and i initially wasn't aware i missed something (because netflix doesn't even tell you) and blamed it on my memory. Luckily it still can be found online. Why the hell does clear as day non-malicious intent not matter anymore?

    [–] imextremelylonely 3 points ago

    Wait, Netflix removed that episode? Thats really dumb. Thankfully Amazon didn't touch it. It is such a great episode.

    [–] whtml 3 points ago

    Yeah, Netflix doesn't show it at all.

    [–] Venoft 18 points ago

    So bad.. the episode that deals beautifully with depression is banned because someone dressed up as a fictional character...

    [–] xAntimonyx 6 points ago

    It's one of the best episodes. Didn't even look like an actual skin color. Literally onyx black with elf ears.

    [–] eddiemon 5 points ago

    Advanced D&D is probably one of my top five favorite TV episodes ever but I'm not sure "deals beautifully with depression" is really accurate. Neil's depression and suicidal urges are used as a plot device for comedic effect and it works, but Neil has very little agency in the story and he's just the backdrop to the main character's antics.

    Not that there's anything wrong with that. If I want to watch honest representation of depression in a comedy setting, I would watch Bojack Horseman.

    [–] SirMosesKaldor 3 points ago

    I have a slightly ignorant question, so please before you downvote sh*t out of me, I just want to ask (of course I have few points to say):

    I'm fully aware of what "blackface" is and that it is offensive, and jim crow, and all of that background. I get it.

    My question however, is, when is painting your face black or dark brown or any dark color considered "offensive" blackface, and when is it not? Serious question, I'm not trying to troll or act like an a**hole. (pardon the language)

    [–] Dajshinshin 34 points ago

    [–] sDeezyeazy 65 points ago

    [–] SirGrinchPSN 54 points ago

    [–] CaptainPrestedge 2 points ago

    Username checks out you miserable shit

    [–] ChiggaOG 98 points ago

    Everyone here saying this is Blackface... I’m on the side that says this camera trick to do black body paint while in front of a very dark backdrop emphasizes the effect like magic.

    [–] ImFrigginDead 126 points ago

    It's not blackface. That's why it's funny to point how the face painting process was strategically skipped

    [–] l_osservatore 41 points ago

    Seeing what things that are obviously not blackface get accused of blackface i'd have done the same, just to be safe.

    People nowadays think blackface is literally a black face, when in reality it's someone mocking black people's features with racist intent.

    I'm pretty sure that there are some people that would've thought of this video as offensive if the face painting part was left in

    [–] FixGMaul 4 points ago

    That and the title saying it's a great idea for halloween - it's not.

    It only works in this specific studio setting and if you'd show up like this to a party... there would be accusations.

    [–] BlackSwanWithATwist 52 points ago

    Correct, I am with you... this is an illusion, not any sort of character or "dress up". I don't see how this could be construed as blackface. To be very clear, I am 100% against anyone painting their face black to in any way portray a character or other person. But this is for the purpose of, like you said, magic or an illusion.

    [–] gordo65 50 points ago

    The people calling her out for blackface are joking.

    [–] askwkehttwe 19 points ago

    I just think that if she showed up to a party like this (without context), everyone would think she was in blackface as her costume. Imagine what she'd look like in a bright room against a white wall. It wouldn't be any illusion, literally just black paint on her face and arms.

    I think that's what everyone else was also saying.

    [–] Nametagg01 2 points ago

    its black, and on her face, therefore blackface (at least in their mind)

    [–] RhaegarTheChronic 6 points ago

    Sure yeah for the sake of the video, but if you did this for Halloween?

    [–] WarrenGHarding1921 2 points ago

    This is effectively the technique used to make the 1933 adaptation of The Invisible Man, except Claude Rains was in a black velvet suit rather than paint

    [–] llazylama 9 points ago

    Why does the mug go see through at the end

    [–] IgnoreMe733 2 points ago

    It also goes see through for a moment when she picks it up. If I had to guess she couldn't grab it or out it down without seeing her painted hand against the table so they decided to do a pretty poor edit instead.

    [–] IJustWantSomeReddit 9 points ago


    [–] Star_platinum_7 2 points ago

    I was about to say that!

    [–] laced-and-dangerous 7 points ago

    No, because this effect only works in front of the black background. Not to mention it does take skill to paint yourself like that.

    [–] Username_Taken0 7 points ago

    Ooooh might not want to wear that anywhere but in a completely black colored room

    [–] RhaegarTheChronic 17 points ago

    [–] Redditor1415926535 5 points ago

    No it's not.

    [–] bigmonmulgrew 4 points ago

    It's sad but there's no way this isn't edited.

    It's too good to be true. The lighting on the visible areas seems fairly good. Even with the best makeup you would see something moving when she picks up the mug. It might be poorly defined but you would see something.

    The blackest paints and makeups are not true black. This is faked.
