padded bodysuit

Hi all,

Apologies in advance if this is in the wrong section but here goes...

I'm hoping someone would be able to help me with regards to what I'm looking for and if its available on the market. Basically, Im looking for a padded bodysuit of some sort that isn't too thick, but will make you bulk up a bit in terms of your size. I'm a slim man, but for the cosplay I'm doing (Kylo Ren), I wanted to have a bit more size on my arms, legs etc and I thought a padded bodysuit or even just a padded shirt and trousers would be perfect (if this sort of thing is available of course).

Also, can anyone recommend any cosplay online stores (in the UK) for not only craft stuff for making costumes, but for also other cosplay related stuff as well?

Any help for my queries would be awesome.

Thanks!

Yes and no. Muscle suits and shirts exist, but they aren't natural, they are exaggerated and more Hulk like, or Arnold ish.

How slim are you? because Kylo Ren is a pretty trim guy. His costume simply has bulky waist armor and good shoulder pads. You'd be surprised how much a set of ordinary shoulder pads can change the look of an outfit

CCM, Under Armor and few others make these. Hockey players and lacrosse players will wear them for extra protection.

Ah, I see. Yeah, a suit that makes me bulk up like The Hulk probably isn't the best lol.

As for how slim I am, I'm pretty slim but with a few adjustments, I'm sure I can work around it. Thanks for the tip on the shoulder pads. I'll look into it. Thanks again.
