Need help with Midna Imp form bodysuit/helmet

I'm semi-new to cosplaying, but I've always cosplayed an easy character. So, lets get to the point. I need some help finding a bodysuit to cosplay Imp Midna. I found one that has been pre-painted on zentai-zentai.com which is about 78 dollars. I'm not sure if it will be easier to get a plain black one and have my friend (who is being Link) help me paint it or just buy the one pre-done. Also, I need a bit of help making her fused shadow. Help would be greatly appreciated!!

I always prefer to create things myself, but the midna zentai doesn't look bad. you would still have to do some painting on it though (like the green twili symbols)

I think you can decorate it with classic design, according to your choice of color. This will add more beautiful look. pharmaceutical packaging

This video will save your life (I'm doing the same cosplay, so trust me on this)

the girl doing it is a little annoying and hard to follow, so I took notes. I can send them to you if you want, just private message me

I would buy a white one, and paint the black part, instead of painting the white parts on a black one. The result would be better. Actually, that is what I had done cosplaying imp Midna, because the white came out grayish on black.

For the headpiece, I used a thin foam mattress, cut the round piece and the front piece (you find plenty of patterns online). Then I modeled the details on it with clay (I did a thin sheet of clay covering the headpiece front part on both sides and attached decorations on it). After it dried I glued the two parts with extra strong glue, and then sprayed it silver.

Trying out Midna

I am trying to do a midna cosplay as well (Imp Form) and wanted to know if it would be a good idea instead of painting a Zentai suit to get two of them and pattern it out and sew them together. one white. one black?

I'm trying to find either a good template or anything to work with because I have been reading that the pain can bleed out onto everything you sit on sometimes when you wear it and i do not want that to happen...

Help would be appreciated!

Also from my experience paint isn't very reliable for such big areas. But I know some people have made it work for their bodysuits.

It is possible to buy two suits and sew them together. It's going to be a complicated process but it's definitely possible. What I did for mine was I patterned each piece out and made the suit from scratch with two different color fabrics. This way you won't waste material. But I gotta say, lycra fabric isn't very cheap, so two low-price suits may even come to about the same price range.

My midnas both did paint for their suits. So long as you seal the paint appropriately, it's no problem!
