Lightening lycra fabric?

I bought a lycra wetsuit a while back for a costume of Wiccan, from Marvel's "Young Avengers."

I thought that maybe it would be too hard, so I didn't try it, but then he got a new costume.

The only problem:

The wetsuit I bought was black, as his old costume was; the new one is gray, with galaxy print.

I was considering just trying to lighten the whole wetsuit, then attach black fabric panels and splatter paint (or just buy and cut up a pair of galaxy tights). The problem is that I know I can't bleach the lycra to get it gray, so I'm not sure what to do.

Any suggestions? It occurred to me I could get gray fabric paint and just paint the necessary portions gray instead, but I'm not sure how that'd fair when stretching...
