Zentai At Night (temperature)

Post by metal450 » Wed Jul 30, 2014 2:00 pm

Does anyone have experience wearing zentais at night? I've made a tron suit, but the only material is black skin-tight nylon; after some more reading I'm concerned it'll be far too cold.

If it's likely to be - any experience on how to combat? i.e. wearing thermals or underarmor under it, etc?

Thanks! :)

You could make a Tron blanket too.

Nighttime temperatures can vary a lot. It can be cold fuzzy coat weather or warm tank top weather.

Oh, good to know. So then I'm probably safe just bringing the zentai, and saving it for the moderately warmer nights? Or might you still suggest having something to put under it? I just feel like having stuff under the spandex would kind of ruin the look/effect...but I obviously wanna make sure I get the chance to use it ;)

Bring your zentai suit, and you'll get utility out of it from sundown to 10 or 11pm. After that, sometimes the temperature remains in upper 60's a little longer, or can drop quite a bit. Bring a fun coat. :) You can roll it up, stash it under something and dance nearby (keep a little bit of an eye on it) then reclaim it and walk on. :)

There have been years that the nights where so warm that wearing one of my suits was a bit much, there have been years that have been so cold that I brought a portable heater into bed with me (and made him breakfast in the morning). Bring a range of options, but with a zentai I would definitely make sure you have a coat or something you can put over it. They're pretty thin.

Love to see some photos of that tron suit! I was considering making one a year or so ago but I was eying up 1mm wetsuits as a base to build on.

Here's a vid of the front from last year when I first made it. I don't have one of the back, & it's not functional at the moment(still needs some repair from damage sustained at a festival overseas ;))

Since there isn't really anywhere to hide the electronics in a spandex bodysuit, I made this for the batteries / inverters / etc:

Let me know when viewed, I wanna pull em from dropbox :)
