The unique characteristic of chroma key green is that specific tone is
rarely found in clothing and flesh tones; therefore it is easy to "key-out"
the extreme-bright-lime-green with video editing software. A gallon of Rosco
video chroma key green paint is around $80

.

A slightly cheaper alternative to get started with chroma keying is to buy
a large canvas of chroma key green fabric

but wrinkles create shadows that are difficult to key out. You could try
taking the cloth to a paint store to see if they can custom mix a match,
but I'm not sure it would work as well.
