If you are in the market for a new Spidey suit, you have probably stumbled upon Zentai Zone. Zentai Zone is a great place to get a custom made Spider-Man suit, and these 5 suit features will ensure you don’t run into any mishaps, like I did. Be sure to check out my Iron Spider suit review for the full story!
Here are the top five features I recommend when ordering your custom Spider-Man suit:
You guys should know by now how I feel about forearm zippers. They are an absolutely necessity if you are going to be wearing a Spider-Man suit. Whether or not you decide to implement accessories such as web shooters or Venom claws, having these zippers will ensure you will have a full range of motion. You can use your phone, eat, drink coffee– the possibilities are endless! Without these, your hand use becomes very limited.
2. Zentai Zone Face Shell
If you watched my latest review, I was a little disheartened that I didn’t have a detachable mask. If I had, I would have also included a face shell in my package. A face shell not only creates a more realistic Spider-Man facade, but it also makes it easier to breathe since the mask isn’t sitting directly against your mouth and nostrils. The face shell can either comes with magnetic lenses (my preferred option) or attached lenses.
3. Detachable Mask
If you opt to get the face shell, then make sure you choose the detachable mask detail. I personally feel that these companies should offer this as a standard, but it is not. If you don’t choose this option your mask will come attached to your suit and be quite frustrating and uncomfortable. So, I’ll say it again– make sure you click this option.
Having shoes already embedded into your suit make it look more realistic. Plus, it takes out the hassle of you having to add the shoes yourself later. I recommend ordering half a size to a full size up if you are ordering from within the U.S. because the sizes for these companies (shipped from China) tend to run small.
5. U-Shape Zipper
This is up for debate, but I like the U-Shape zipper because it creates a seamless effect in your suit. It is a little awkward to put on at first, but once you become used to it, I believe it is easier to put on than the standard zipper. It also makes it easier for you to put on if you don’t have anyone to help zip you up.

If you’ve seen any of the Spider-Man films, and you’ve found yourself wondering how you can get your webs into your own Spidey suit– then look no further.
The RPC Studio is one of the cosplay community’s most reputable suit-makers on the block, and chances are, you’ve seen your favorite cosplayer sporting one.
However, there are a few steps you have to go through while purchasing one of their products. To simplify things a bit for you, Cosplay and Coffee has written down the step-by-step process of buying your very own unique Spider-Man suit:
Step 1- Choose Your Design
The RPC Studio offers over 100 suit options for both men and women. From the newest Spider-Man design that will appear in Avengers: Infinity War to Gwenom, it’s almost hard to choose just one! This is the first step in purchasing your own Spider-Man suit. You can browse through the RPC Studio’s Instagram for inspiration in deciding which suit calls to you.
You can also select a custom suit from your favorite designer such as Brandon Gilbert. After you purchase your custom design (most sell for around $40), send the file to the RPC Studio for professionally sewing and detail.
Step 2- Give Your Measurements
Have you ever had to give measurements for a suit? A tux for a friend’s wedding or a dress for your high school prom, perhaps? Well that’s what this step is for– except in a lot more detail.
Not only do you need to know your chest, waist, and hip measurements, but you also need an accurate number for your neck, head, and height. Thankfully, the RPC Studio provides picture demonstrations on how to get the correct measurements for each area. You will also need to provide your most precise weight and and shoes size. All measurements can be given in feet, inches, or meters. This helps the RPC get you a suit that is form-fitting and comfortable at the same time.
Step 3- Add Details
Now for the fun part– adding details. You can choose to get a suit without a mask, or as a detachable mask (seen above), with no price difference. However, if you want those cool Spider-Man lenses, you have to chip in for the added detail. And if you want to be able to remove the lenses themselves, that’s a little bit extra as well. As for the lenses, you can choose to have fog-free lenses or the glossy version you see in these photos.
Depending on the suit, you can also add claws, shoes, and zipper options. All of their zippers are seamless and invisible, adding to the overall movie-quality effect. If you get a classic Spider-Man suit, you can also choose how vibrant you want the central front symbol to appear (i.e. with or without puffy paint).
And that’s it! A simple, albeit tedious process that ensures you will get the best cosplay on the market. The RPC Studio suits are 100% customize-able. They are made of breathable spandex, bright colors, and movie-quality details. It doesn’t matter where in the world you live; RPC Studio ships world-wide and they even offer a generous payment plan option.
Suits are also available for print only, allowing you the fun of sewing the suit together!
