so I've been talking with shiimaxion about wrestling gear lately, and I was thinking about just what I should get made for wrestling gear. As far as a "look" goes, I'm pretty sure that i want to stay rather close to how I dress now... the stylish International Male (but with an edge) that I am...I'm pretty sure I don't want tights. They're just not me. I've been practicing in my karate gi pants and I find that quite comfortable, but I think I'd want something a little flashier for in the ring. So I was thinking of getting shiny wrestling pants made. I knocked around in illustrator doing a little today and came up with a few designs. So once again, its time to do a little living life by committee and see what people like:

pants designs

I'm surprised CafePress doesn't have a "shiny wrestling pants" option.

Jesus, pleather wrestling pants... I'd imagine you'd have to pretty much replace those every match or two...

well, they aren't pleather in the purest sense. They're a much lighterweight material, but rather durable... specially made for wrestling... (hence their price -- would probably run me a little over $100 for these designs)

I only see the use of the pockets with there are hidden weapons in them to vanquish your wrestling foes.

Otherwise I am all about sigils with flames.

well there's always the dreaded, blinding white powder... but yeah, I wasn't even thinking of them as functional pockets... just design elements. Elements which apparently no one likes as much as the sigils.

My main concern withthe pants is that you're giving your opponent something to grab onto. Not to mention, pull down.
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: January 1st, 2004 - 01:49 pm (Link)

ah, but grabbing tights is illegal... only a devilish fiend would do some such thing...

Grabbing tights, sure, but what about pleather pants?
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: January 1st, 2004 - 04:11 pm (Link)
yeah, those count as tights...

Anyway, I was joking... grabbing a fistful of tights is a tried and true heel (bad guy) means to victory... its illegal, but its part of the sport...

I kinda figgered...

I dunno, I just think flames on the bottom of the leg/cuff is almost overdone. You have, like, Bam Bam Bigelow. And some dude I just saw last night on Smackdown. That's at least two dudes.

Karate gi pants can be so comfy tho.

None of the above.

If you don't wear pants, your opponents will be a lot more afraid of you.

I like the pants, but I think that in general, you should keep little stuff off your ass. No sigils, no pockets, unless they're really big. I don't know why I think this. Maybe because small stuff makes asses look big.

I dunno. I think simple elegance is best. I would pare down even more and have just the sigils without the stripes on the sides. Sort of a minimalist asian-inspired image. Fierce simplicity. It would be different since most wrestlers (that I remember from being subjected to RAW and all that good stuff when I lived with you) look like a parade float after the tragic fire has melted all the shiny plastic together.
