So, many of you may know about my desire to play in something a bit different than a pair of board shorts. I’m looking to maximize the exposure of all the hard work done in the year for carnival while setting myself apart from the board short wearing hoards and still keeping true to theme for the band (and my heterosexuality). Let me start by saying that no blubber or flab will be let loose on the masses. Me and my crew make sure we are in tip top shape and I would advise all men planning to deviate from the board shorts status quo to ensure the same.
I, fortunately, have made contact with a costume designer. He has agreed to advise and guide me to ensure that I’m spectacular rather than a spectacle!
So I have decided to start with my monday wear. I’m going to wear spandex both days.
There are several options when it comes to length. When I think back, I have seen several men in tribe wearing spandex. From my memory I think that it’s rather difficult to look “manly” in batty riders, so I will wear long cycle shorts.
After googling for this product I have been mentally scarred by site after site offering soft core gay porn pics masquerading as product photos. I thankfully found out that amazon sells spandex…without the porn! Im also sure that most places have local options…even buying the fabric and having the shorts made would be a cheaper option.
There are different lengths…I will stick with the longer shorts which is an 8 or 5 inch length from crotch to end.
There are infinite colours…Black is my first choice but I’m also looking at other interesting options such as camoflage.
Now, I’m proud of what I got, but that doesn’t mean everyone has got to see it. I have no idea how to do this part. I was told that just stitching a cloth over the crotch area looks tacky so I’m going to ask for help from the experts and will tell you the options for that later.
Any advice? Post a message and let me know!
