Uh oh, too dark. Help?

So, I picked up a jacket today for my fem Riddler outfit (riddler reference).

The jacket I've got is a dark, forest or hunter type green. Short of sewing my own jacket in less than two weeks, it's my best option. Any thoughts on how I could make it look a little lighter? It's 36% polyester and 64% triacetate (whatever that means).

I know that it's too dark for dyeing but maybe I could try a bit of "airbrushing" with some watered down acrylic? Would fabric medium for acrylics be worth investing in for something like this? All suggestions welcome!

triacetate/ acetate = plastic. I hate the stuff personally.

Yes, you want your paint to flex, that is what fabric medium does, keeps the paint flexible.

I would personally just make sure your hat matches - maybe paint on some highlights but not an all over color....maybe even question marks?
