So I am going to a Superhero themed BBQ. I was planning on buying a set of Iron Man armour but the awesome coofunkcurly/finhead stuff disappeared and now I have left it too late so.. I decided to go as my favourite though less well known hero Captain Britain.
I have found somebody to sew the spandex suit for me based on the suit Captain Britain wore in the run up to and early days of Excalibur (IMHO the best suit).
However the problem is, and reason I have avoided Spandex in the past, is that unless you are actually built like a Superhero (which I am not) you end up looking a bit tragic. So I figured the best solution would be a muscle suit.
I did some research and came across Flex design costumes who make some awesome muscle suits but they are a bit overkill for my needs.
I figured the best solution would be to roll my own with a flesh coloured zentai suit and some upholstery foam.
Zentai Suit, and electric knife have been ordered. My next decision is which foam would be best. Do I go for the cheaper low density foam or would something denser be best.
Has anybody done this sort of thing before and got any hints/tips/gotchas I should look out for?
