A fabric containing viscous fluids between two layers of latex that’s heat and pressure sensitive may not be any closer to becoming a fashion trend in our world as it was in Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ Watchmen, but for cosplayers trying to pull off Rorschach’s unique ink-shifting mask, YouTube user guinness0507′s impressive substitute for the fabled material that should please those longing to “Hurm” it up like champs.Despite spending a chunk of my adult life printing t-shirts, I wasn’t fully aware of the potential for thermochromatic paint. Turns out that the stuff can be used to create a neat pulsing look when applied to t-shirt material and then wrapped over a wearer’s face as it changes color from black to white at 86º F. That’s perfect for would-be Rorschachs, although it might not work quite as well on excursions to confront Ozymandias in the Antarctic.
