Muscle Suit


Has anybody done a lightweight under spandex muscle suit?

Don't want something that covers totally, something more like the muscle suit used in the Spiderman movies. Seperate muscles applied to a spandex suit.

Would shaped upholstery foam work?

Re: Muscle suit


That's what I'm thinking....I've been experimenting with the idea for a couple months now...the key is to find a good way to adhere the foam to your base suit, then give it a slick, yet slightly compact surface for your Batman suit to slide over.

If I manage to nail it down I'll post about it and how it's done.

Re: Muscle suit


It's been suggested to me that skilfully carving away at upholstery foam with various electronic tools would be the best way to go on a tight budget.

Watch the Hellboy extras to see the best undesuit I have ever seen get made. Also look for Steve Wang video/dvd extra. Cant remember which one but he is the master of undersuits. Cant remember if I saw one in the Blade extras also.

Re: Muscle suit


Hellboy's only just coming out in the cinema in the UK... It'll be a while 'til we get the DVD, unfortunately.

The "Steve Wang extra" you're talking about, is that on the Hellboy DVD?

Would it be worth importing from the US?

Re: Muscle suit


most folks seem to want to wait for the directors cut DVD - which incidentaly is the version we are getting in the cinema...

finaly a reason to not feel bad about waiting longer to see a movie.

 Oh and I can borrow the extras disk if you like?
