RootSuit Costumes
 If you REALLY want to stand out in the crowd then you need a Root Suit. What the heck is a RootSuit? Well if you go to sporting events and have seen full sized spandex costumes representing the teams colors, then you have already been exposed to the Root Suit. These spandex suits invented by Colin Grussing have been known to transform you into any character that you can dream up and anonymously get as creative as you want to be. A costume that instantly gets you into character that is sure to be a blast at any party or event.

What started out as a fun costume project has mushroomed into a full fledged business now sporting dozens of spandex suits and accessories to choose from. They gained a lot of exposure for their unique costumes when the Cartoon Network was having Shaquille O’Neal host one of their Award Shows and wanted him to wear a Root Suit during his performance. The only problem was his size in which they custom made a XXXXXL Rootsuit just for Shaq.
They also got a tremendous amount of free publicity during a Vancouver Canucks Game when green men in rootsuit spandex suits was doing their best to distract the Hockey Players in the penalty box.

This helped propel the full sized spandex suits to thousands of more eager customers that continue to send in videos about how much fun they are having while wearing a RootSuit Costume. In fact the root suits have become such a major success that there is now several copycat spandex suits now on the market. But as with most knock-off products, you get what you pay for and the copycat rootsuits are made much cheaper then the originals.

Hm, I wonder who that is?
I can't help but see the connection between the Root Suit and the GameFace Company that was just on the Shark Tank Show. Mark Cuban ended up investing in the Game Face and was already seen at the Dallas Mavericks Game prior to the Shark Tank episode. Both companies are targeting Sporting Events to Halloween Costumes and the new designs are only limited to your imagination. It would sure seem like a good fit for Mark to add this to his list of successful companies that he can also promote at his basketball Games.

On the other hand how proprietary is this invention? I can already hear Kevin O'Leary saying why cant he just start the Mr. Wonderful costumes that also covers your face. Whats stopping other copycats from also making spandex suits? Then it will all come down to Branding in which the Root Suit clearly has first movers advantage. They already produce dozens of different colors and styles and an impressive list of accessories. I really like the neon light tie that you could make a business out of all by itself.

    You're right. It's not a proprietary invention because the rootsuit is just a cheap Chinese-made zentai suit that's OEMed for them with their logo. If you look up zentais, you will see they've been around for a long time, and rootsuit is nowhere near the inventor of the all-over spandex bodysuit. It was a bit perturbing to see the guy try to pass it off as if it was his own invention, though.
