Re: Inferno Neck question


I removed one of the "segments" on the front of the neck which helped considerably. Plus, it really helps when wearing it and you need to tilt your head forward to look down.

But rather than get all slimey with KY or look like Beetlejuice with baby powder all over -- try a plastic shopping bag. I just slit it into a big sheet, then line the neck piece with it, leaving it open slightly where my face goes. Then just pop it on your head like a hat, and pull down. The bag itself will slide really easily, so it's just a matter of controlling the stretch on the urethane to work your face through. Once on, just pull the bag out and you're good to go. This works especially well on cowls too.

Now... getting the neck piece off is another issue. Personally, I just start tucking the plastic bag back in and line it again before pulling it off. Still can be a bit tricky, but not too bad.

Re: Inferno Neck question


LISTEN TO ME EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!


I post this to everyone always and no one seems to remember. the BEST non messy way to put on a cowl is the following:

Get a piece of Swimwear spandex fabric (just a bit thinner usually), black or whatever color you want! Cut a piece wide enough to wrap around the inside of the cowl neck openning, and have it long enough to hang into the cowl to at least past the neck openning a bit. Glue the fabric to the edge of the cowl neck openning only 1/2 at most is all you need. Trim any excess fabric away from the mouth or eye opennings that might get in your way.

TADAAAAA now you have a slick lining in your cowl which allows you to pull the darn thing right onto your head without ripping out your scalp!!! lol

I have done this to EVERY cowl i own. It is the BEST least messy way to get a cowl on and off your head. the spandex also can help add to the comfort too, because you wont feel that rubber of the cowl right against your skin. It will also absorb some of the sweat leaking out of your head from dripping as badley down your suit.

I have 1 more cowl to line right now, so im going to make a dam tutorial already to show everyone so its stickied already for everyone to use.

I keep meaning to do the lycra liner, as it's basically the same as the plastic bag method, only much nicer and more convenient. And less risk of asphyxiation. emoticon

Re: Inferno Neck question


Thanks for all the input guys. When i posted this I had just tried maning (ie. to do something in a macho, masculine way) the darn thing on and really wrenched my neck.
