1. Male Cancer Awareness Suit
Sure, that fluorescent yellow jacket ups your visibility, but if you really want to turn heads, the folks from the Male Cancer Awareness Campaign have just the gear for you – the Near Naked Man skin suit.
This full-coverage skin suit is designed to look as if the rider is, well, naked (save for a strategically placed fig leaf.)
The United Kingdom-based Male Cancer Awareness Campaign (MCAC), a charity devoted to educating men about prostate, bowel, and testicular cancer designed the suit. By focusing public attention on the parts of the male body where the sun usually doesn’t shine, charity officials aim to raise awareness of men’s cancer and reduce the embarrassment associated with it.
2. Mariachi Ski Suit
Prince Hubertus, also known by his nickname Royal Disaster, is an actual prince. He’s also the lone member of Mexico’s Alpine Ski Team in the Sochi Winter Olympics. To mark the occasion, he wore a one-of-a-kind, Mariachi-themed suit.
He chose the suit because he thinks it “celebrates Mexican culture” – and it made the Sochi Olympics so much more fun to watch.
3. Muscle Skin Suit
The Muscle Skin Suit has to be the ultimate quirky suit for daring cyclists. It was created by Polish designer Tomek Pietek. He decided to put the suits into production after the concept, released in 2009, received so much attention online. Pietek worked alongside fellow bikers and sportsmen to create the aero-dynamic, skin-exposing cycling suit. (Source)
4. Nicolas Cage Skin Suit
If you are looking for the perfect gift for someone, there’s no fancy toy or high-tech gadget that can top this Nicolas Cage spandex bodysuit. With the actor’s head plastered across every inch of the suit, it’s a national treasure.
The suit is the clever creation of Morphsuits, a Scotland-based company that features more than 200 weird and wacky designs in its online store. The “Nic Cage as Everyone” meme-inspired design was developed for an online contest that asked Morphsuits Facebook fans to vote for their favorite user-created look.

9. Tuxedo Skin Suit
This tuxedo jersey is so sharp that when you go for a ride with it on, you may be mistaken for James Bond.

10. Clown Skin Suit
Another amazing looking spandex suit from Morphsuit. There’s nothing funny about this clown, probably because he looks like an axe murderer. Squeezable red nose, slippery bananas, and sense of humor not included.
