Looking for a place to rent Sumo Suits for a corporate team building event. Anyone know of a place in Santa Barbara? Any other unique ideas?

You should get those over-sized foam boxing gloves and let employees knock out their boss. I'd pay to do that! As for team building.. those group brain puzzle games are fun. Olympic themed maybe?

I'd make sure those suits were disinfected, sterilizd and de-loused before I put one on considering the surface areas they cover!

Sumo suits are degrading for so many reasons it shocks me to know that someone would still use them. You have to be within a certain height and weight to fit in these costumes. Additionally, as someone else pointed out, the cleanliness comes into question.

We used those suits for a pep rally once and, honestly, they are SO much fun, ringworm be damned! I hope you can find them, because you will laugh so hard you won't believe it.

How on earth is a sumo suit degrading?

Fat people may think it is degrading because they cant fit in sumo suit because they are fat already. Fit people don't think twice about it because it is funny to them and can be taken off.

As a fat person, I find these sumo suits very uncomfortable to look at. It seems to be just one more way to poke fun at fat people. I agree with 818. These suits are degrading.

Boy are people sensitive. They are fun. Our company had them a few years back. I don't know for sure where they were from, but I think the company that put on the whole event had them. Maybe try party rental places or event planners?

People surrounded by padding running into one another is funny.
Are clown shoes degrading to people with large feet?
Comically large wigs offense to people with big hair?

If they wrote your name on the sumo suit it would be degrading otherwise just harmless fun.
