Well I wish more people would do what you do then. Looks so much better than the shiny side.

I think it might have something to do with the perception that it looks more like the comics Where you have black shading and super shiney highlitesand accents muscle mass.. Although it looks fine on a comic, it translates Horribly into real life (via lycras anyway..... PVC does a good job of looking similar.... however only on costumes that are meant to be made from pvc... like catwoman, venom, etc.)Also having a solid physic similar to the character also adds greatly.

I'll definitely use the advise when I decide to stop being lazy and make a Superman fan film. First I need about $10,000 lol.

The spandex shouldn`t hold the cape. Use your arms to do it. Like what Dean Cain used to do in Lois & Clark.

huh? You mean the cape shouldn't be attached directly to the necktop? It is with mine.... and i like it that way. BTW, Dean Cain's suit is gay. Dean Cain is also gay.

I`m saying that the spandex doesn`t hold heavier materials like leather or etc, so you can attach the cape to your shoulder and then put the spandex over it. That`s how it was done with the Dean Cain costume, wich had the best cape of them all.
Click here so you can see what i`m talking about.

Oh. I remember someone posting a link with materials for a red leather cape. Can anyone post it again?

I just finished my Custom supersuit this week.




The tights and briefs were done by Spandex outfitters
The cape was done by K.M.D. theatrics
the belt and buckle were from tandy leather and I plasi-dipped them yellow
and the shield I designed myself based on concept art from Superman:lives

Yes, Kelly (KMD Theatrics) does some FREAKIN FANTASTIC work. I'm sure he can do whatever you want. I am also able to help if you have something special. Just give me an email at jherman312@hotmail.com. I've made several differnt styles of Superman costumes. The George Reeve (1950s), Christopher Reeve (1970s), Dean Cain (1980s) and I'm working on the new movie version of the costume. I've even made custom orders/styles. And I can help with other kinds of spandex based costumes.











Cheers

"Was I in a hurry??"

I don't understand. If you mean was the suit complete? No that was just a work in progress for a customer. I eventually finished the rest of the costume with the wings, ears cut out, lower tights with briefs and belt and boots. Oh, and the gloves. I just don't have any pics for that costume finished. LOL I just wanted to show some of the variety of work that I've done.

Cheers~

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.

Sweet costume. Very good, best one I've seen thus. And thanks for posting the materials you used. I am looking into getting a costume made and I didn't know what type of fabric or material I should use.

LOL "Life!!" Work, sew, eat, sleep (occasionally). That's my life. But I enjoy it. I really get a kick out of the creative process. And every costume is special all on it's own.
