This thing has been a wild ride. Where do I start? I guess I should start with introducing myself. My name is Brandon Lane and I am the founder and owner of Flex Design Costumes. I guess I've always had an interest in muscles suits! From stuffing socks into my sleeves as a kid to my first attempt at a muscle suit for Hanz and Franz. The pivotal point in the development in this muscle suit all started in 2006 when my Pastor approached me about our school needing a mascot. Once I found out that our school mascot was supposed to look like a high-school wrestler I was off searching the web for the most ripped, vascular, muscled mascot I could find. I searched long and hard for anything that would work but with no avail! The one thing I did find was the fact that I wasn't the only one trying to find a realistic muscle suit that could be worn "shirtless". Finally I asked my Pastor if he wouldn't mind if we attempted to make the mascot in house. That started a two year long research and development of what eventually became "Christian" the contender who finally surfaced in 2008 just in time for a tournament...which our school happened to take first place at! Needless to say, Contender gave me the confidence to attempt a scaled down, more realistic suit. Shortly after, I sold my first prototype on Ebay and made a friend that directed to join the League of Heroes. It was in this forum that so many extremely talented and gifted individuals helped develop and promote these suits...which leads us to our present state!
Hope you enjoy the website, it's long overdue but it sure has been fun
I hope and pray that this will challenge others to chase their dreams as well.
Never give up on your dreams!
