Zentai Suit is King — Special Anime Battle Suit Appreciation (Part 1 American Comic Heroes)

We can discover beauty in everything, even battle has its own aesthetics, and battle suit is an aspect of showing it. Undoubtedly, the most typical one is zentai suit among all battle suits. Under its tight covering, each and every move would show strength and beauty of the human body curve. In anime world, there’re all kinds of zentai suits in diversity of form and function. Some may be even more impressive than their wearers. Now let’s have a look and appreciate them.

Part 1 :Battle suits of American Comic Heroes

 

superman

In American comics, ever since superman puts on his blue zentai and red cloak (oh, don’t forget to wear a red underwear outside) in times of crisis, and saves the world as a hero, “zentai + super hero” is a normal attribute for American comic heroes. Can’t you see that even steel armor in Avengers is tight and showing the curve of strength? What these heroes in zentai suits have in common is that they are powerfully built.

1). Captain America

Captain_America_Portrait_Art

Imagine Captain America wear a zentai suit on his former small sized body, that would look like a young ballet dancer, right? By the gods of Marvel, this slim guy who was chosen for his uprightness became a muscular man after injecting super warrior serum. He is not born as a hero, he is not immortal, he is just tougher, braver and smarter than ordinary people.
Captain America is regarded as an emblem of America’s spirit. Not only his name included the country’s name, but also his zentai suit is featured with national flags as well as his shield.
Old-fashioned is never out of date, Captain America will always fight for humanity with his spirit of freedom.

2). Spiderman

Spiderman

Spiderman has a keen perception — “spider sense”, and he can shoot very strong spider-web strings from wrists via web-shooters. He is agile and vigorous. He sews his own costume to conceal his identity, which is a zentai suit. The zentai suit includes a red top with araignee lace and dark blue tights, covering him from top of the head to the toes. Do not worry whether he will feel suffocated, after all spiderman is a superhero turned by spider genes. This zentai suit doesn’t hamper his movements at all. Spiderman is one of Marvel’s flagship characters.

3). Batman

Batman

Among so many heroes, batman must be most famous tuhao. He spends much money to build himself a combat gear with the world’s advanced technology. The batman costume is fireproof, bulletproof, anti-shock and anti-explosion. The gloves and boots are also strengthened to protect him. The material of the costume even has attemperation capability. He seems always so cool in his zentai suit.

Just to mention a few other heroes: The Flash, red zentai suit with a golden lightning logo on the chest; Green Lantern, green zentai suit and green sunglasses (thank god no green hat); Martian Manhunter, green zentai suit, red cross straps, blue shorts, blue cloak and blue boots (all I can say is this outfit definitely comes from Mars).

Thus it can be seen, to be a superhero, besides owning special powers, you also need to have a nice body that underneath a zentai suit. Justice League? Maybe we can call them Zentai Suit League. (Forgive me for saying that)

 

Next post , we will discuss the Battle suits of Japanese Anime Manga Heroes .

How to choose a Dragon Ball Goku costume with different symbols?

goku1goku3

Goku_Kaio_symbol

Goku wears a few outfits in Dragon Ball Anime. Some of the them look the same, the only difference is the symbol on the costume. When cosplayers are going to cosplay as Goku, many may get confused.
Now I’m going to write some introduction and meaning to these different symbols. Hope you’ll know which one to choose.

 

1. First one, the symbol on the costume is kame

This is Master Roshi’s kanji, pronounced kame and meaning “turtle”, is the kanji that all of those trained under Master Roshi are given to wear after completing their training. This kanji is a patch worn on the top right side of the Turtle School uniform, and on a much larger patch on the back.

Kame-dragon-ball-z

Our Goku costume with Kame Letter

9042x2(4) 9042x5(1)

 

Goku was trained by Master Roshi when he was a kid, so this is the first costume he wears. And if you’re buy a goku costume for your kid, this is the best one to choose.

goku kids
And Goku competed in the World Martial Arts Tournament wearing this outfit.

21st World Martial Arts Tournament

 

Two other characters who also has worn the same outfit. You can also cosplay as them using just one costume. Or you can form a group cosplay. This is the costume you should wear when you attend the con togerther with them.

Krillin
Krillin (Goku’s lifelong best friends)

Yamcha
Yamcha (once an enemy of Goku, but later became a friend and ally)
2. Second one, the symbol on the costume is eddbbe19cfbf80_full

It is Goku’s kanji, pronounced Go (meaning “wisdom” or “enlightenment”) is the kanji that Goku adopts after his training in preparation for the upcoming battles on Namek. Goku continues to wear this kanji until the arrival of the Androids.

So this is the costume you should choose when the cosplay background is Namek.

Goku’s son Gohan has also worn this outfit once, you can also cosplay as him. And it is also a good choice if a father is cosplaying together with his son.

3. Third one, the symbol on the costume is symbol_of_goku_by_expoartexplorer-d69yng0

It is King Kai’s kanji, pronounced kaiō and meaning “world king” King Kai wears these two kanji on a large, round patch on the front of his uniform. When Goku dons it, he wears it only on the back of his uniform, keeping the Master Roshi kanji on the top right of the front of his uniform. Yamcha wears it in reverse to Goku, having the Kai kanji on the front and the Master Roshi kanji on the back.

So here’s another choice when you do group cosplay with King Kai and Yamcha.

Hope this article is helpful when you choose Goku and other dragon ball costume.

Have a nice time cosplaying as Goku from Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z!
