unless you can get one dirt cheap, i wouldnt recommend buying one. with the resources on here youd be happier piecing together a fan suit.

SB,
  Hard to follow that advice when you make the store bought look so good bro.

I meen that sincerely too. You both have done great jobs with seemingly basic kits.

Here's mine from many years back.
Remember, the castings of these suits are not NEARLY as good as the were years ago, and they weren't so great back then either.

Im not sure, but i believe there has been alot of work done to all of them. When rubies suits are plain, the latex is quite floppy, there isnt much muscle definition and the castings arent normally all that clean.

Correct me if im wrong bro's

Re: for those who have those store bought RUBBIES/Morris SUITS


Well idk about the other guys but I did my upgrade in over a couple of weeks.

I first cut the rubies suit apart into the shape that I saw the custom peices being made. I cut the built in bat symbol out so that I could have my cowl's symbol rest there.

Then because the latex is so light I reinforced the inside with black silicone caulking. This was the most time consuming because it had to dry between each layer of silicone that i put in to make it more beefy. I did that to the chest, shoulders, cod and legs.

Then came the glueing to the 1mil wetsuit. before glueing I affixed velcro to the chest portion of my wetsuit where the cowl would attach once the chest peice was glued in place. I let it dry for 24 hours.

Then Superglued all the edges. let that dry again. While that was drying, I used a dremel and/or nail clippers on the zits left from casting so I could have a smooth surface... there are still a few, but. oh well.

Then I put on 6 coats of [sign in to see URL] painted beyond all the seams of the peices, painting parts of the wetsuit. I did about 3 coats a day.

When that was done and the belt and suit were plasti-dipped, I attached the belt with velcro securing points in the back. I can take it off but generally just leave them on. I also, as I said, attached velcro to the chest portion of the wetsuit where the velcro attached to the cowl would meet.

I didn't use the mask, gloves or the boots that comes with the suit. I bought that stuff special.

But like I said, took me about a week, a week and a half. The major part for me was the silicone.

So IDK if you consider that difficult, but thats what I did for the most part.

Re: Improving a Rubies/Morris Suit


I have a whole tutorial somewhere about improving a Rubies Clooney suit. Shoot me an email and I'll dig it up for you. I posted it here years ago but hell if I know where it is at this point and besides the pics were hosted on my photobucket so I can't hotlink them here anymore. I'll be glad to email you the doc and pics though.
