It may be a bit tricky, but I wouldn't recommened fabric markers. That's just way to many markers, and you'll probably get dye streaks (i'm guessing, i don't know for sure). You could of course, dye material the color you want buuuuut I shouldn't bring up such a thing cuz i have no idea on how to go about that ^^;
A bodysuit seems to be the best :) or if you can get those darker pieces to stick to your body in the proper spots, then go for it. Tricky costume to think about at the moment.
Sorry for...not helping much .

What paint to use depends on what your body suit is made out of. Fabric paints will stick to most fabrics, but I found that they didn't stick to my body suit (zentai suit bought on ebay made out of lycra/spandex with some kinda shiny coating). Actually I never found a paint that stuck very well to mine. So I would suggest that you buy a body suit that is made out of a fabric that you already know you have a paint for. Meaning that if you buy a spandex body suit, you have already researched where to buy paint that will stick to spandex.
And I wouldn't worry about paint sticking to you. Even super glue comes off of the skin easily (I know from experience). But if the safty labels on the paint say not to get it in contact with the skin, then be careful.

two things you can do:
1) buy two body suits, one black, one white and cut out the details then sew the edges of the two together (alot of people do eva plugsuits like that) and then just use neon green dimensional fabric paint for the little details.
2) make yourself a duct tape twin (furries use them to make their bodysuits so check furry fandom tutorials), put the white suit on the duct tape manequin and then paint away. it'll be alot easier than trying to paint it on yourself or having someone else paint on you since the manequin won't fidget much.
