To bodysuit or not to bodysuit...HELP!?!?!
I'm trying to sort the base for my Karin (DNA2) Cosplay.

Now, i've a few issues would appreciate any advice!

Problem one...
Material - sometimes it looks shiny, sometimes matt.

Problem two...
Colour - sometimes a very dull plummy colour, sometimes BRIGHT purple

Problem 3...
Pieces - do I go for a leotard over leggings or do I go for a bodysuit









So... i've picked a few possible selections from ebay. Spandex, cotton, PVC, lycra, leotards, bodysuits...
ARGH!

I'd say the PVC looks most accurate to me but you might want to go for lycra and spandex for the sake of comfort (neither of which would look too bad either). I definitely say a bodysuit.

If you're going for the shiny/bright look which would be quite accurate I'd go with this one http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/WOW-Lycra-Zentai-spandex-Unisex-catsuit-Metallic-Purple-/190503221876?pt=Adult_Fancy_Dress_UK&hash=item2c5ae07a74 (but the zip?)

I'd be more tempted to try and make it look a little more 'realistic' if I was doing this cosplay by going with
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-Purple-Spandex-Lycra-Catsuit-Fancy-Costume-/271183591611?pt=Adult_Fancy_Dress_UK&hash=item3f23cd38bb or

But that's a personal preference thing, I choose less 'bright' things when cosplaying and try to think how would this look if it wasn't on paper ! Anyway any of them will be fine really, you can just add the detail to them to pretend the seams of a leotard (if you want to). I think leotard and leggings separate might be harder to pull off (just opinion though).
