**HELP** how would I go about this?

Okay. I'm planning on cosplaying this girl Nevy [picture] I know what to do for everything, EXCEPT HER SKIN! Being a Homestuck, I know much about body paint. One thing I know is that you do NOT want to wear that much of it (all over your body) for a whole day. So, my first thought was maybe a zentai suit. Sadly, I looked around and could not find one in her correct color. She's magenta/fuschia. So can someone PLEASE help?

Is there a chance you could either buy a white zentai suit and dye it or find the correct color fabric and make your own? Those are the best ideas I could think of besides painting yourself completely.

Can you paint one of the suits with fabric paint if you get a white one? youll probably need to put it on a dress form of yourself while you paint it though so its stretched out! I saw someone do it for a cortana (halo) cosplay.

I would paint a suit. The time it takes to do a full body duct tape dress form is well worth the final result you'd get from a beautifully painted body suit.
