    So with the spare time created by the safe practices of our global situation, I was able to piece together my gym workout set. I did not purchase the KP Body due to its reported issues, so finding a suitable body was imperative.

    To offset the high price of the head and costume set, I tried to find an inexpensive body. I figured 95% of the body was covered anyway, so a cheap body would suffice. I went with a DID soldier body, wrist pegs, and feet that I found on Monkey Depot. I was sold on the double-jointed elbows. The cost with shipping was just over $18.

    I still thought the body was lacking in muscle mass, so I added some bulk with some stretchy athletic tape. Two inch wide 9" long strips around the thighs and 6" half inch strips around the biceps. I added a spare fat suit I had laying around that was meant for another project that I never got around to (LOTR Samwise).

    Now here's where the fun begins. I wasn't happy with lightness of the stain effects on the clothing. So, using watered-down transparent acylics, I stained the gym shirt and pants even more. I saturated both with water, then dabbed on the paint stain on the appropriate areas (chest, arm pits, pant cuff holes, and knees). Wetting the clothes allows the paint to spread naturally and not dry with an ugly edge. I spattered a few more spots along the bottom of the pants and stained the drawstrings. I went a step further and detailed the wrapped fist hands with more grime and a little cow carcass workout damage.

    And here is the final result! I'm very happy with the set, although i felt is a bit overpriced, but no regrets! A Butkus to go with the figure would be perfect finishing touch!

    If you commission a tailor to do it, pretty good.
