painting on lycra bodysuit, need advice

I am needing to pain a white spider onto a black bodysuit. I have decided or rather think neopaque from dharma will work best.

I need tips and advice on how to go about painting this. This is my first costume. I have made my kids costumes, but that was a lot easier.

Here is what I am looking to create.

love Dharma Trading, good stuff.

The suit needs to be stretched while painting. If you have a sewing form, great, otherwise cardboard cut outs & stuffing will suffice, unless you have a friend willing to wear it while you paint. Because it goes across the chest, it's really important that boobs stuffing be in the right place, both for paint application and layout.
