    Yes I know what to get.. but I was hoping if someone had any links.. .. I didnt know anybody still used aerobic tights... I assumed everybody used the Bycycle Riders outfits.. because they breathe and you dont sweat so bad.... I forgot the name of the popular brand.. the normally sell for $40 shirt long sleeve.. and pants are $30''' Walmart carries and off brand for $12.. which is great.. The 501st use these according to some of the Guys on the Dented Helmet..

    Anyway.. I could swear the name was Armorwear or something like that..

    Target. Womens warm up pants. 10 bucks. I have a 34 inch waist and I stand 5,11 and I take a size medium. They're cheap, comfy, snug and easy to clean.

    Yup, I do the same as Armando...

    The same company that makes those Under armor knock offs from walmart...makes the warm up pants.

    AthleticWorks is the name. I think mine were like 12.98. Just take your wife with you when you get them, or you will get weird stares if you standing in the womens section holding pants up to your waist.

    Try your local Costume store. Mine put me onto an old lady who used to be a Dress-maker. She has a Shed full of fabric. She made my whole suit for $20 including materials.

    Just an avenue for you to explore.
    :thumbsup

    I used a dive skin for my first undersuit, but I prefer the Walmart athletic compression 'under armor' KO stuff.

    I also use underarmor. It's snug, thin, and breathable. :)

    I cocur with Jimbo, I have the Walmart UA KO top (compression shirt really holds the fat in too.) and I got a pair of matching bottoms at Academy. 2-piece is the way to go...so you can pee-pee. UA is too expensive.

    go to ebay and put 'Zentai suit' into the search bar. These freaky sex suits zip up in the back, have a seperate crotch zipper, come with bootie-socks and gloves sewn in. I got mine for $26 including shipping from China. I used a glue gun to attach the neck seal (which also attaches up the back) and presto my entire under suit is attached and wont come untucked.

    Go with UnderArmor, but you have to buy the right one. There are two types. I forget the actual names of their product, but one is an insulator and the other is designed to cool by drawing moisture away from your skin. If you live in a hot climate, do not buy the insulating one. Same idea for the cold environment...

    You would want the "Heat Gear" version. "Cold Gear" UnderArmour keeps you WARM.

    DO NOT use a dive suit unless you want to end up like that guy at MegaCon in 2003. HEATSTROKE. :wacko
