    Where is the best tutorial and how to get some shoes integrated into a SM suit? Also... what do most of you guys do about the, er... spider-nether-regions?

    Thanks,
    Magnoli

    I haven't made anything myself but I've looked at a few threads and what I gather is you just place a solid shoe into the suit and then glue a sole (from either the aforementioned shoe, or separate) onto the suit by leaving your foot and the shoe (protected from glue) in the suit. As for the Crotch region, I've heard of using multiple layers of compression underwear or wearing a cup. I've never worn either so I'm not sure how it'll work but I've gotten this information from the threads of Lunaman, Iracel and kenlandrum.

    Found some great threads using goolge search instead of the internal RPF search and found a lot more info that way. Thanks!

    Shoes

    Get a kung fu shoe for inside and then take the sole off a water shoe for the outside (or you can even buy hard replacement soles on Ebay)

    Arach-nad issues

    I wear a pair of compression shorts and then a full seat dance belt over the top
    No issues with support or bulging

    Goldbond powder or baby powder (swamp * is nasty) then compression shorts. If you're still bulging, add a cup or wear a full seat dancers belt. I have tried both dancers belt and a cup. By far dancers belt is a lot more comfortable vs a cup. Having the cup pressed against somewhat limits some mobility and flexibility. Let alone sometimes can cause injury due to being pressed too tight and it can rub you the wrong way leaving red marks to small lesions. Alternative is compression shorts and some craft foam to "smooth" out the region. I'd say grab yourself some goldbond or baby powder be generous, good compression shorts with a nice smooth shape (if you're going the foam method) or cup/dancer belt.

    Shoes, it honestly varies. Depends on how "accurate" you're willing to go vs comfort vs price.
    Ive seen several builds with water shoes, flat sole glued to the bottom while the inside of the suit uses those gel inserts etc people are creative. I overall go for comfort due to the heat and humidity that can literally heat stroke you D:

    I ended up getting a cheap "Kung Fu" slipper, ripping off the sole as recommended and attaching it to the suit using 2-part epoxy. Worked great! I ended up wearing a FlexDesign muscle suit so I wouldn't have to worry about the "modesty" issue.

    NB: The web pattern is a little off on my face as I had to do a quick re-adjust shortly before the photo and I forgot to fix it. The lenses are magnetic, not permanently fixed to the suit.

    Thanks again guys!
