So I think I finally settled on a look that I was happy with. I dropped some serious coin and got my hands on a foam muscles suit from Flex Design FX (Brandon is fantastic to work with by the way). Picked up the most expensive belt I could afford from the Bronze Armory and got an entirely new bodysuit printed and sewn. The print turned out much more black then I was expecting – but I was okay with this.
I think out of all the suits I own this is probably the most recognizable and unique looking. If I were to add up the time I spent running around in this suit I think I easily say that capped off about 125 separate appearances in it. The suit was finished and brought out about the same time the Heroes Inc was formed so it was my suit of choice when I was out with the crew.
This suit is easily the most difficult to do long period of time in. The foam body suit that I wear under the spandex not only doesn’t breathe but also several restricts my movement. I generally start to over heat in it after about 2 hours and on several occasions have actually be rushed away from an event with heat stroke! So the only tip I have for anyone else trying to piece something like this together? Bring lots of water!
