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.
