Ok, after some talking with some friends, positive compliments from you guys, a few pm's about commission work, and some folks from Gen Con asking where and how and how much?, I am thinking of making and selling skins with the "Flash" method I used on my Axertor based suit. I am on the fence on wether or not to have a go at this. I am worried about customer satisfaction and happiness with the skin. There are a lot of you guys who offer commission paint jobs and great skins and/or both. Just wondering if anybody is interested or if I may be wasting my time.

The link is to my Completed Suit thread, thoughts, comments, much appreciated :) Link

Yes and no. I custom cut the muscles from upholstery foam, tighten the slack on all the appendages (if requested), and add velcro (if requested) like I did on mine. I also mix a small amount of acrylic paint to tint the latex (which would be chosen colors of your choice) and add all the colors to have a finished ready to wear suit. It uses the same basic idea as the Mr. I suit, but is different, so I dubbed it the "Flash method"
