    yeah it looks good to me as is, but i know if i paint it, the colours will not stick out as much as the mask thanks again lee (usurper) for the great job, and of course brandon from flex design for the suit awesome. after talking to neokazama he said the samething and well he would be one to know for sure how well the colours would look since he does do an amazing job on the other suits i have seen on here.

    Can you put latex over it than paint it?

    That is what I am thinking I have a full set if skins I have been trying to sell but noone seems to want them so if that is the case I was thinking of cutting it up using it for texture in places that will be visible. But I want to save the suit so in case I want to do something else for Halloween do not want to start gluing things onto the suit.

    Mike, thanks for the kind words.

    About the suit, Tweikarikna (Spencer) used the same type of skin suit that you have, I believe MeanGene83 (Gene) painted for the NYCC '10 he could probably give you an idea on how good are this suit for painting. I don't think he coverred on latex but just paint it over it. Again give him a shout, im sure he will be able to help you.

    This is a pic of Spencer's suit or should I say DJjalles suit.

    Wooo that is my ole bad boy. What we did was coat it in latex, we only did a coat. I would do at least 2 coats of latex if your going to paint it. The reason being is, the paint will bleed through just the one lair. Also you have to use some type of cover coat because if you dont or dont use adhesive in your painting the paint will flake off in the areas where it wears off. (Under the arms and between the legs.)

    Its a catch 22 because you want to be flexible in this suit, but you also want a good latex base to go with it too. We used acrylics, but if you have access to inks use those instead.

    Those body suits are the most form fitting things ever. Im using one on my next bat costume. Only down side is the bathroom aspect of that thing, once your locked in it thats it your in it to win it. I won mulstiple contests because how real it looked though. When you breath you see your chest expand in and out and that sells it. Or dont coat it and paint it and see how you like it. that way you can always coat it if you want.

    I think I will be going the way I was thinking but didn't want to do it and that is use a set if skins I have been trying to sell use the texture from that paintit it the way I want, that way I can put it anywhere I want on the body suit.And I asked for mine to be made with a zipper in front for the number one calls.:)

    [sub][sub]can't decide on what kind of gauntlet blade(s) i should use, should i go with the chopper type just one big one and is stationary or should i go with the standard 2 bladed type. and i can possibly make them move back and forth, any ideas?[/sub][/sub]

    chopper would be my input.as it is a custom pred go for something different.

    Been leaning towards that direction was even thinking of making it extend and retract as it sits on top of the gaunt
