Or maybe you’re really into dressing up as a skeleton for costume parties, but you hate when the facepaint gets washed off in a storm.

Whether it’s the muted blue tones of a rainy daytime or the abrupt flash of lightning or a streetlamp coming through the film, you’ll be kept dry by something way more interesting to look at than a sheet of nylon. It’ll take a bit of effort (and maybe a radiologist friend) to make one of your own, and it looks like it might have a hard time closing, but unless you’re Gene Kelly, you probably want to stay dry somehow.
