Hi all, I was just wondering if anyone uses morph suits in their haunt, and what the best uses for them are. I saw an advertisement for them on YouTube, and they looked really cool and are actually affordable. Thoughts, feedback, uses, and opinions are greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Morphsuits are great, but I dont buy from that company. They are actually really over priced.
If you go to ebay and type in zentai then you will find hundreds of them listed. I normally get mine for about $30 each. On ebay you have plenty of options for them. Including eye holes and what not.
I use them whenever A creature needs to be non human head to toe, I airbrush them and add hair to them, Ive sed them for Zombies, werewolves, Trolls, ghosts, dot room guy, all kinds of stuff.
I love em! but yeah, every time I buy them I feel a little creeped out.

Hey Allen, you are always great helping people out with questions here. Thank you!
I have one for you, how do you keep the spandex costumes clean for other actors,
like one's with latex parts. I've wanted to use them in my Haunt or sell them but
hygiene seems problematic.

Thanks,

I turn them inside out and wash them on gentle cycle. Im moving to using silicone on all these suits because that will hold up better to water and sweat. Im having good luck with tin silicone (tube- depot variety) in plaster molds, the same as latex, then I attach the pieces to the suit with more tin silicone.
Inside out on gentle,
thats the short answer and let them air dry, I make two suits for each actor in case they take to long to dry.

Thank Allen! Those costumes are incredible, great job! That was the best answer I was looking for, I know they were used for dot rooms but I never thought about full body costumes/characters and thats what I was hoping to hear about. Thanks for the eBay tip too, I'll be sure to use that instead. You rock! :)

Yeah, I was looking at them for a shadow room as well this year, but I never thought of the costume base aspect of them. Very cool.
