I'm wanting to cosplay Cheetara
from the new Thundercats in a few months. I was planning on using a bodysuit for her skin for modesty and convenience's sake. I have some questions on how to go about doing it, though.
Can I buy a yellow bodysuit and paint the stomach area the cream color? Would I need multiple coats for that, or would it not work? Or do you think it would be better to buy a cream colored bodysuit and paint everything else yellow?
Also, what could of painting method would you suggest for this? Can I just paint on fabric paint with a brush, or should I airbrush it? Is there a specific brand of paint you'd recommend? Where can I find a cheap airbrush to do this with? I don't foresee myself doing many cosplays requiring me to paint large areas of fabric so I'm not sure a pricier airbrush would be worth it--unless you think it comes in handy for any size or shape of fabric painting? I just don't know, and I need you painting experts to help me! Thanks so very much!
