There are many ways to personalize our zentai costume. Because of the computer screens color deviation, sometimes the suits I got is a little bit color different from the pictures I see online. This is not something big, but it would be cool to get something just as I wish, and most of all, some camouflage I want can't be found in these online stores. So my first idea for personalize my suit, is to paint one with special graphic. I have fallen in love with a beautiful tiny flowers picture from my storage, so I ordered a white shiny metallic zentai suit online. After it's arrived, I couldn't wait and began the painting at once on the following weekend. I have an old paint brush, and applied a few layers of paint coats. At first it seems good, except the paint was not shiny, however after a while I saw the color changed as the paint was mixed with the original white color of the metallic suit. That's by then I realized this shiny metallic suit has a layer of paint on it already, so it needed to be kept away from water! So first trial, failed! Then I ordered again a white lycra zentai suits online, and worked again. This time I could say I succeeded, and I tried it on. The graphic looks beautiful, and the disappointed points are: here were many paint marks, and I have used about 10 coats to get the solid graphic I wanted. The later graphics was better compared with beginnings.
I have done my third trial after a couple of month, and this time I picked some big bold graphic, and it's much easier. However, because it's a big graphic this time, after painting finished, when I worn it, I realized some lines were not very smooth or located away from the right route, because when suit is loose and when I wear it, the cloth material is in different state.
Up to now, here are tips I got from my trials about painting a zentai suit:
1)Lycra zentai suit should be your first choice. Others may need special painting to do that.
2)For the first trial, pick some bold and easy to draw graphic, rather than delicate tiny ones, which are easy to mess and will cost you a lot of time.
3)ALWAYS apply multiple coats of the paint. So if there's a brush mark left, it won't make a big different as you add another painting coat.
4)It's best to wear your lycra suit when do the painting, so you won't find the distorted or weird lines or graphic as I did. However, because of this, please make sure your painting is safe for your body first. And also because of this, you may try with a simple graphic as beginning, as keep a position long time is not very fun for most people, I guess. I used Slick fabric paint and that seems fine.
5)This tip is heard from others, as I haven't tried yet. They said a sponge brushes works best to paint a zentai bodysuit, than a paintbrush, as paint brush needs about 10 coats to begin get a solid design, and also the sponge brushes also leaves minimum marks. This is from a friend who tried both paint and sponge brushes, and shows more passion for painting than I do.
If you find this helpful or interesting, you may order a zentai suits and beginning your own painting suit now! Trust me, it's even more fun to actually do it, then you could share with us your story about paint a suit too.
