*Need a bit of help*

Hello!

This year for A-KON 24 I plan on dressing up as Magic man! ~insert confetti toss and cheesy music~
The problem is that I will either have to put on a LOT of body pain as his belly,arms, and face are all green, or put on a morphsuit for the large portion of it and then paint my face and neck and such. So the dilemma I have right now is which one should I choose? Also if anyone has suggestions for places to get such things I would appreciate that.

Reference images:

Pros/Cons to morphsuit:
Easy to put on and less time consuming to get ready
Less maintenance and care
Possibly less accurate
Usually are shiny (I am trying for a matte look because he isn't very shiny)
Very flexible and covers everything without worrying about smudging

Pros/Cons to just paint:
Could be VERY cool looking
easier to get the most accurate color
no chance of shiny/latexey look
can rub off easily
VERY time consuming
Can miss spots


P.S what are you all's thoughts on contacts for him. I have blue eyes and I was thinking either black or white contacts for my eyes. White would possibly be creepier but i don't know which one to get.

Thanks for stopping by. Leave a comment or bump or whatever you feel like,

I'd go with the suit. I've heard a lot of Homestuckers have the same problem when it comes to paint, and they usually opt for grey stetch-sleeves when they can. Besides, that way it's safer for other people's costumes, too. No risk of bumping into someone and smudging onto their hard work.

Not sure this it the right forum, though. Did you mean to put it in crossplay?

When i noticed it I had already submitted it in and there was no way to take it back.
I kinda hoped they would reject it xD
