...in 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!"


...you 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...

...final 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.

I always thought you'd be the last person to use the word "chick". :) Don't ask me why...
May. 22nd, 2006 01:49 am (UTC)
Heh. Y'know, funny thing is, when I use words like "chick" (and write entries like this), to me they're so obviously over the top that nobody could ever take them seriously. The tone is deliberately intended to be tongue firmly in cheek, but I'm told that no, it's not obviously satirical at all.

In fact, it sometimes surprises me when I'll say something that's so obviously over the top as "stand the half-naked chick on the drop cloth and wrap saran wrap around all her underthings" and have people seriously believe that I look at women in a possessive or derogatory way, but I guess there are enough people who do really behave that way that it doesn't come across as satirical at all. *sigh*

And now I'm processing at you about it. Hmm. :)

This entry is just beggging to be send to one of my groups

Looks like you guys did a fabulous job. I can't wait to see the finished product in person.

One note that the fabric pedant in me can't help but make:

"You'll want to make sure it's made of Spandex or something equally stretchy; cotton, not so good."

Her suit is either nylon or cotton (possibly polyester) with some amount of spandex blended in. You don't actually need much spandex to make fabric extremely stretchy, and really it's the weave - that is, the fact that it's a knit rather than a woven - that gives it most of the stretch.

How many coats did you use?
Jun. 8th, 2006 05:58 am (UTC)
Yes, it was a cotton/spandex blend and we used about 3 full coats plus several more patches over the spots we missed the first few times. I have the finished product images on my website at www.theinnbetween.net

Super hot!
May. 25th, 2006 02:37 am (UTC)
Awesome tutorial.
Just as fun to read as it was to see happen. But probably less fun than the actual doing.
Jun. 26th, 2006 02:41 am (UTC)
Please do it again with contrasting colors. Also, how did you get it off her?
Sep. 11th, 2007 09:48 pm (UTC)
We simply waited for it to dry and peeled it off of me

Re: that "chick" in the catsuit
Sorry, I don't post my email address publicly on the internet, but you can reply to me here. Why do you need my email address?

i'd REALLY like to masterbate in front of that chick with the glasses wearing that latex catsuit
Jan. 26th, 2012 08:45 pm (UTC)
Not interested
May. 28th, 2010 03:41 am (UTC)
this comment is delayed but i've got to say, this post is great. hilariously written. was wondering about the post-dry catsuit procedures as well though. there were no zippers added at all? wouldnt literally pulling it off stretch it, or, at least, be extremely difficult?
May. 28th, 2010 10:50 pm (UTC)
Keeping the latex conditioned with a silicone-based lubricant helps make it easier to take on and off, in addition to preventing it from sticking to itself, but it's still some work to get on and off.

Work that's fun to watch and even more fun to help with. :)

What brand of latex? Where do they sell it? Is it the skin latex used as body art? Again, what major store carries it?
Jul. 2nd, 2011 11:22 pm (UTC)
Re: latex
Liquid latex is available from a lot of different places. Costuming shops and theater supply places will have it; you an also find it online here.
Jul. 17th, 2011 06:14 am (UTC)
What was this cat suit used for? Do you have any photos of it in use after it had finished?
