Re: Movie/TV costumes

I recently went to a comic con and out of all the costumes I've seen, I'm tempted to get a Deadpool costume myself. There's something about being concealed inside and pulling off wacky Deadpool poses. One of my friends wore a wetsuit painted red and added a cape to make it into a Robin costume. Look...

Re: your wetsuits

I got the Orca TRN too (but mine's red). It's a great suit - cheap, thin, stretchy and smooth on the outside. Go for the tri wetsuits if you like the smoothskin finish (warning, it's addictive). I also have surf wetsuits (Billabong Foil and Xero). They're a different kettle of fish. Not smooth on th...

Re: I am getting a rubber suit!

Nothing beats trying stuff on. Size charts can be unreliable, but at least rubber is stretchy enough to shoehorn into (with lube, that can be fun to slip and slide!) Like wetsuits, you want them snug, not loose. If you go custom, follow their instructions and measure accurately, ideally multiple tim...

Re: New leathers

Looks good so far, but feels much better once you have the boots and gloves. Makes riding much more comfortable and safer too, when everything sits perfectly on the bike. I rode pillion once on a Harley Davidson. The boots worked a treat, but not having gloves at the time meant my hands got way too ...

Re: New leathers

Did just go out a walk in your full kit or something then? It was cold and rainy outside so I went out in my black leather jacket, black tshirt, black leather pants, tall harness boots and gloves to stay dry. Caught the bus downtown to visit a few touristy places. A few people asked if I rode a mot...

Re: New leathers

Thanks Gordon.

It looks nice! Did you get matching gloves and boots too?

I just went out today in my full kit. A few people asked if I rode a motorbike.

So Gordon, are you going to get a Deadpool or Flash costume and re-enact it? :D

Re: I am getting a rubber suit!

Looking forward to this! Should be lots of fun! Get a full suit with no seam down the middle, just like wetsuits. Tight and smooth with no seams on the chest is the way to go. You can even get stretchy ones with no zip! The only way in is the neck. There's also hoods, gloves, socks and sheaths, if y...

Re: How often do you suit up?

I voted "every few months" which is bad coming from the person that runs this website, just lost all interest in gear again :cry: You're not alone. Years ago, I used to suit up for fun or go the local swimming pool nearly every week. Now, my suits usually sit in the closet for months until I go on ...

How often do you suit up?

How regularly do you guys put on wetsuits (for whatever reason)?

i like someonelse being in charge of my zip :)
I'd happily do that if we lived in the same town. :)

I find the tightness a turn on too, as long as I can still get in and out of it.

Re: Slicking up

Silicone oil without nasty impurities (like Pjur original) is safe on neoprene. After all, they're safe to use on latex condoms. :D One can even find silicone wetsuit sprays at a dive shop. But they can leave an oily mess that is difficult to clean up without soap and water (especially on the fabric...

Slicking up

I've seen this ages ago, but has anyone tried slicking up suits with silicone lube (or similar) like this guy? The results look incredibly shiny. Much slicker than unlubricated smoothskin and different from wet nylon suits. https://www.flickr.com/photos/llbdevu/5627713966/ https://www.flickr.com/pho...
