I was wondering - do his shorts look black or blue? I got blue shorts, but now I'm having second thoughts :(

Interesting... I always thought they were black. I never really paid all that much attention, but I remember... black spandex. ^^ I doubt anyone'll really notice or mind the difference as long as you don't have baby blue. ...That pic isn't working for me for some reason.

Pick isn't working for me either, but I always thought they were black. not an avid fan of GW though, so I could be wrong.

I'd say they're black. spandex tends to give that lighter-color-sheen to it... you know what I mean ^_^

all the promotional items are in black...

I think his spandex pants are black... but I also think he wears like jeans for a while...which are blue... ^^;;

They are /definitely/ black.

I have a number of production cels of Heero and the paint used for the shorts is always black.

As a side note, make them shorter than the normal bicycle short length or your legs will look really short and not all that Heero-like.

Black. And Babbit-chan? I don't think spandex takes dye very well... I could be wrong, though.

Babbit: We dye our own spandex (actually, it's a swimwear-grade lycra-spandex blend) for most of our costumes, and have had great luck with it. It sucks the dye right up, and the color is extremely intense. ;^_^ The only inconvenience is that it takes a lot of effort to get it to rinse clean afterwards.

So check the tag on your shorts before you give up on them, because dyeing could be very worthwhile. ^_^
