I'm trying to figure out the whole green skin thing for She-hulk. I'm trying to decide between painting my entire body or a body suit (http://www.doitstyle.com/Dark-Green-...it-p12328.html) that I'll cut the head and neck from and then just paint my neck and face. Any suggestions or ideas?

I agree with Darien. If you were to paint your body, it would be very time consuming, and possibly wipe off on anything you touch, sweat off, etc.

A few considerations before you decide on a path forward;

-Painting your entire body will not only be time consuming but also fairly costly, as any decent body paint isn't really cheap. So consider your willingness to sit still for a few hours and the cost of doing the whole body every time you want to costume. However, if done correctly (READ: Airbrush) it can be a great costume.
-Another option, consider breaking up the paint application with other costume parts, such as a Fantastic Four suit.
-If you do a green bodysuit / paint combo be sure to match the color perfectly or break up the shades with other colors to blend the green. Example: match your body paint to your suit and then use the purple/white leotard She-Hulk is known for wearing from time to time which will hide the differing shades of green on the suit and your body paint.

Just a few things to consider.
