Now, I realize I could just paint this green, and with a few coats it would look okay, but I want something more skin-like. So, I was considering coating the suit in liquid latex. My first question is, will this result in the skin-like appearance I'm aiming for? And, if so, I'm betting it's going to be tremendously warm to wear...

I'm rather new to Cosplaying, so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Also, anyone care to suggest a good place to buy liquid latex in large quantities for a reasonable price?

Thanks for your help!
