I bought a costume belt on ebay, it's an adult size toy one that lights up. I'm going to use that. It was only $12. Does anyone know the size the chest emblem should be? height and width?

It's nowhere near 12 inches. The screen one is 9 inches at the most, but maybe smaller. He says it's cast from an original, that's complete bull. It's not even close.

Hi guys, watched the superman film on saturday afternoon i think that thesuit is made from thin neoprene like they make triathlon suits from. I also think that the cape is made from rubber when he's in the rain and lycra at other times! The suit lookstoo thick to be made from lycra and makes everything look smooth like neoprene does!

the cape is made from wool, and latex, they made a table with the design of the cape then they poured the latex, then put the wool on top of that

And the shield is extremely small, flimsy, and the colors are off.
