Another thing to consider is that sometimes zentai suits come already having been painted to get a certain color or shade, which unfortunately probably makes the act of painting again more difficult.
One strength of this suit is that it doesn't look like this is going to be a painted one, but don't quote me on that or anything. The tutorials for zentai painting that I've found thus far have pretty much all recommended going with a white base and then painting what you want, for the described reason.
