i made my suit entirely EXCEPT for the emblem and belt, which i obtained from a very talented friend of mine. I know it's not 100% accurate, but i like it like this...

The only thing still left to do is attach the emblem to the suit, and get a haircut. I'll also add that i'm not taking requests for suits like this. I do this for my own collection.

Cool, dude! I notice you went with a plain cloth for the cape instead of the leather type, is that right? Again, great work. :up:

What kind of material did you use for the body suit? Well, what kind did you use for all the pieces? It all looks great. And can you PM me contact info for the people that did the molds for you? I must have a good Superman costume by Halloween this year.

Christ, that's a brilliant Wonder Woman costume - fairly close to the approach I'd like to see the movie take, though not quite. I don't like the big W accross the waist particularly, I'd prefer a traditional, more slender belt and a gap between the belt and chest-eagle.

Uh, Kelly's actually a guy :)

Orlando Spider - the design of your Superman costume is awesome. The colours and the whole "cut" of it is great - the sizes, shapes and arrangement of the various elements - is much better than the real Returns one, much more faithful, even though the changes themselves are slight, they are significant. If that costume was made with the same level of quality as the actual Returns suit it would look absolutely fantastic (this is not a slight against you at all - just acknowledging that a Hollywood feature film's costume is made to a higher standard). I prefer the longer cape of the Returns suit, but apart from that all your design choices are superior - the collar is a vast improvement.

Is the cape able to drape over your shoulder a bit, the way Frank Quitely draws it in All Star Superman?

Nice codpiece. Did you make the boots yourself too? They're better than the movie ones. And for the costume, is it spandex or another material?

lujho 02-18-2006 02:04 PM

Re: Custom Superman Costume
 
I could be mistaken but it doesn't look like lycra/spandex to me. That's the problem with all "spandex" suits... actual Spandex itself sucks, it's an unattractive looking material which no superhero costume should ever be made of. It's just got a horrible sheen.

But if you make a "tights" based costume out of another, high-quality material it can look great. Orlando's costume doesn't look as great as the real Returns or F4 or Spidey suits as far as what it's made of, but it's way better than Dean Cain's shiny lycra.

Most of those KMD costumes suffer from being made of spandex, even though they're incredibly well made. If they were made of another material thay'd look a great deal better. Alex Ross' art suffers from the same thing - most of his heroes actually look like they're wearing cheap lycra, when he could be painting them to have any nice-looking finish he likes.

Yea it is. Although Batman does not make an appearance, he's just a friend lol.

Re: Custom Superman Costume
 
Hey guys, thanks for the kind comments on my suit.

Concerning the Belt and Emblem, to those who have shown interest:
Although I did not make them, the artist that DID has only done these two items, and these two only. Since these were molded he has begun work on a new version of the emblem and belt (as new reference has surfaced since then) and probably will not have any readily available until closer to the premier. As it stands, my belt and emblem are 1 of a kind.

Concerning the body suit material, All materials are lycra (aka, spandex) based materials (cape included). What i do not understand, is that MOST spandex fabrics have two sides, a solid side, and then a rather shiney side... and for some reason, most costumes are made with the shiney side and end up looking like crud, whereas the solid/flat side looks better. I always make my suits with the flat side. So to answer the question, yes it IS a lycra/ spandex blend, but it's just incorporated in a better way.

Concerning the boots:
I got them off of a generic shoe website, they are imported and very cheap... however with some modification and vinyl/ leather spraypaint, (as well as in my case, switching out the soles) you get a good looking/ comfortable/ and durable boot.

And concerning the Codpiece comment...
What Cod piece?
