Franklin's Journal Presents: How to Make Your Own Latex Catsuit... just a few easy steps.

Things you will need:
One half-naked chick
Liquid latex
Foam brushes
One drop cloth
One Unitard
Saran wrap
Silicone-based sex lube (ID Millennium works well)

The first thing you'll want to do spread out the drop cloth. In fact, it's remarkable how many things one can do on a Saturday afternoon that start with "The first thing you'll want to do spread out the drop cloth"...but I digress.

Stand the half-naked chick on the drop cloth and wrap saran wrap around all her underthings.
This accomplishes two things. First, it's a lot of fun; in fact, it's difficult to overstate how much fun you can have with a roll of saran wrap and a half-naked chick. Indeed, if the chick is completely naked rather than half-naked, it's about twenty-two percent more fun than most people can handle...but again, I digress.
Second, it protects the underthings from latex that soaks through the unitard. Believe me, latex WILL soak through the unitard

The reason for the saran wrap is that you'll have to paint the unitard while it's on the half-naked chick. You'll want to make sure it's made of Spandex or something equally stretchy; cotton, not so good. So:

Put the unitard on the half-naked chick. Technically, at this point, she is no longer half-naked, more's the pity. The cat in the background is strictly optional, and will disappear quickly anyway; cats don't much appreciate the smell of liquid latex.
You'll probably go through two or three 16-oz containers of liquid latex to cover one unitard.

Now it's time to get busy. Grab a brush and start painting!

Use the foam brushes to start painting the liquid latex on the unitard. You'll note that the back door is open in this photograph; that's because you won't much appreciate the smell of liquid latex, either.
A number of thin coats is better than one thick coat. You'll go through a lot of foam brushes; when the latex starts to cure in the brush, it has a habit of leaving streaks. Don't even bother trying to wash out the foam brushes. I tried it, and you don't want to go down that road. When they start getting rubbery, throw 'em away and use a new one.
You'll want to keep the lid on the container of liquid latex when you're not actually sticking the brush in it, too. If you don't, the latex starts curing in the container, and that can only end in tears.

When you're done with the first coat, you'll have to wait for the latex to cure.

Liquid latex takes about half an hour or so to cure. During this time, it will stick to itself aggressively, so care must be taken to make sure that the formerly half-naked chick wearing the unitard doesn't let any part of herself touch any other part of herself. That means arms and legs apart, which is always good.
If you want to take pity on your formerly half naked chick, a hair dryer speeds up the curing process significantly. Or, you can just watch The Matrix: Revolutions while it's drying.
"Mister Anderson, welcome back. We missed you!"

Or: can do both.
Why, Mr. Anderson? Why? Why, why do you do it? Why, why get up? Why keep fighting? Do you believe you're fighting for something, for more than your survival? Can you tell me what it is, do you even know? Is it freedom, or truth, perhaps peace, could it be for love? Illusions, Mr. Anderson! Vagaries of perception. Temporary constructs of a feeble human intellect trying desperately to justify an existence that is without meaning or purpose! And all of them as artificial as the Matrix itself, although only a human mind could invent something as insipid as love. You must be able to see it Mr. Anderson, you must know it by now. You can't win, it's pointless to keep fighting! Why, Mr. Anderson, why? Why do you persist?

At this point, you may discover that you've made the same tactical error that we did. You see, no matter how careful you are, you're probably going to miss some spots with your first coat.

Now, if you're more clever than I, you'll use a unitard that isn't the same color as the liquid latex you're using. That way, it'll be easy to find the places you missed.
Then onto another coat, and more foam brushes. You may find that it's necessary to lie on your back to get some of the bits.

Now it's time for the silicone lube...and no, it's not what you think. Even after it's cured, latex has a certain...affinity for itself. Which means that it'll stick to itself tenaciously when you pull off the unitard, and you're not likely to be able to unstick it.

The solution is to rub down the half-naked chick with the silicone lube. It keeps the latex from sticking to itself...

The silicone also makes the latex nice and shiny.
Mmmm, shiny.

At this point, you're nearly done. Remove the unitard, returning the chick to half-naked status. At this point, you'll be glad of the Saran wrap, believe me. You may also have to peel the unitard off bit by bit, as latex is almost as tenacious at sticking to flesh as it is at sticking to itself.

Then comes... touch-up. The edges of the collar and the wrists and ankles will probably need a bit of touching up, and if you did what we did and used a unitard the same color as your latex, you might find other spots as well.
