10:58 pm - more dress up Mav
Been playing with the wrestling outfits more. So here we go, time to vote on whole outfit choices.

I took the word "Maverick" off of the stripe on the jacket as suggested by so many people and played with a couple other designs as well. (I'm still torn on the whole tons of buckles thing on the jacket... its kinda Michael Jacksony as some people have pointed out... but sometimes I think I really like it... other times not as much -- I'd love to hear people opinions on that in the comments).

Any other suggestions and comments are of course welcome.

Make sure to keep in mind that this outfit will be warn in the ring (right?). Buckles will be smashed into your skin when you get pushed in to turnbuckles, the floor, other people and such, and can be grabbed and pulled on.

no, not quite... I'll be taking the jacket off to actually wrestle in... so look 3 is likely what I'd wear once actually wrestling. The others are kinda stuff to wear to the ring as dressing. Kinda like a boxer has a robe.

OK. That makes sense. Stylistically, I think they look a bit busy, but that might change when on real pants rather than little pictures.
However, how set are you on the white tank top? If you want my opinion, I'd opt for a red tank top over a white one.

I am not at all set on the white tank top. Actually I was thinking I might change it each different match... kind of a little bit of variety. But yeah, I have red tank tops too.

I definitely think the buckles are a bit too Bad-era michael jackson... which not only makes the outfit look dated (even tho' I love the 80s) but it brings up bad thoughts of jackson's current situation. Of course, that could just work to psych out your opponents and make you an EVEN SCARIER wrestler :)

so hey, why is there a white guy wearing your gear in these drawings?

Belts and Buckles, but lose the shoulder buckles.

I like the stripes best, but the buckles meshes nicely with the pants. But I don't know if I quite like the buckles on the shoulders. Totally up to the Mav. :)

I like the Stripes. But I still think "Maverick" should be on the back. The buckles are cool but not to be overdone, ya know?

I think I'd like it better with either 1 should strap on each shoulder or none. It's really awesome though!

I chose #2, but also think that the outfit choice depends on your character. I think #2 is more suited to a super-heroish kind of character, and outfit #4 a regular joe from the hood type character. #1 is somewhere in between.

If you choose either #1 or #2, I think you should make the red a darker shade--it looks too close to pink here, at least on the front of the jacket. I do like the way your symbol's "eyes" look more menacing with the shade of red you have here. Maybe you could keep the brighter shad on the back of the jacket and make it darker on the front? Maybe have the shade change gradually on the sides of the jacket?
