The costumes will probably cost about $100-300 for you guys when all is said and done, but they will be dye sublimated cinema quality 7 piece suits.
What style of suit is it?

That is, if they accept my request to print. It is with a company that prints large flags.

Hey guys, I'm trying to make a Spidey costume myself. I am hopeful for a seven piece suit, but I am also open to two or three. There are a few things I'm going to specify...

My budget is not large. The highest I'll go is 150, but preferably 80-90 bucks.
I am going for a more classic look. John Romita style, to be specific.
I am not an newbie at costume making, (I made a Spider-Man Noir costume) but I've still always had trouble with cloth costumes.
I have a little sewing experience, (not much) and I have access to a sewing machine.
Mostly advice I'm looking for boils down to two subjects: how does one make white eyes that one can see through, and where does one get spandex that comes in seven (ish) pieces?

EDIT: You people reading this, respond! Say something...

Get an old boombox from the thrift store, pop out the speaker grilles and spray paint them white. Then you need to cut them to size, and form fit them to your face (don't cut yourself!) viola! You have some lenses. Put the hood over them, and the frames over the hood.

SPANDEX! Buy swimming suit material at your local fabric store (between $9-19 per yard, YIKES!) take your measurements, and feel free to use the pattern I have posted here several times to rough up the shape of the cuts.

Hey, thanks a lot for the helpful advice! I'll get to that right away.

So I am a little further along in my SDCC 13 suit aquisition process, and as you may have read, I need to buy suits in bulk. If anyone wants one (this will ship to you as a sheet of dye sublimated lycra, you have to sew it, but otherwise, it is good. Cinema quality) I am going to be charging about $125 per suit you want done.

You may have also seen my designs are a little less than traditional, so I went ahead and whipped up this pattern if anyone would like it instead of my more TASM take on the classic suit.



Here is the gist of what my "Amazing Fantasy" suit will look like. It is a reinvisioning of the classic suit from Amazing Fantasy, with a thin chest strip, and a low riding spider-symbol.


It has the more modern honey-comb pattern, that is what makes it modern, and the redesigned spider-symbol. A hybrid of Webb's symbol, and the contemporary symbol seen in the comics


Web shading. It makes everything look real nice, inspired by how Romita Jr. draws Spidey's webs. I always liked how he made the space between the webs look segmented. I wanted to emulate that in a way. And in the process of trying to make it look passable, I came up with something that looked cool as all heck.


Just PM me if you are interested.

Tinkering a bit with the colors of the suit posted above, as well as making a variation with dye sublimated cloth eyepieces for whoever is interested... It is experimental, and my test print will be this mask with cloth eyes.

Here is a look at the preliminary mask that will be used in my upcoming Spider-Man film:


And a sketch of the spider symbol:

Sweet Spider-Symbol. The shape of the eyes are neat, too.

Not to toot my own horn, but I almost made sweet love to this mask after I stepped back to admire it.

Thanks. The costume should be done in a week or 2 (just in time for SDCC) and I will post a few pics, and I have a photoshoot lined up IN SanDiego for a more professional Spidey Shoot. I have lost about 20 lbs since last year, so good bye fat Spidey, hello love handles Spidey!

In this same vein, I'm looking for someone who designs these suits to make one custom for me, please. Could you contact me at gbrittellejr@icloud.com? Thanks!

Other options (just in case you guys weren't aware) you can do your dye sub printing thru www.fabricondemand.com and you can buy wire mesh (for see thru eye pieces) at Michaels Craft stores or online. Good luck on your Spidey suits guys!

I just received my Spider-Man suit from Zentai Zone and although it is good for the price, I was not happy with the white gauze material they used for the lenses. It is quite easy to see the eyes through this material.

So I had a think about it and in the end I cannibalised a pair of metal speaker grilles off of some Dell speakers I had knocking around. Then I cut up a clear PVC bag (bought specially!) and painted one side of the grille white and the other black. After the paint had dried I placed my PVC cut outs either side and then glued the edges together.
This gave me two benefits, first, I get the glass effect look of the lenses outside and inside my eyeball is not scraping against a painted metal grille.

Then came the stressful task of unpicking the stitching that held the white gauze material in place on my mask. This went fairly well and luckily left me with a "pocket" of inner and outer material to fit my new lenses into and then to be able to glue it into place between the lens and the inner mask.

All in all it looks not too bad. I can't see my eyes anymore!

Have a look at the comparison image I threw together...



Here is the mask complete and original size, which is why I enclosed it in spoiler tags

After tinkering a bit with my new Zentai Spider-Man suit. I have a hankering for something even better....

Done some research and I think the following will give me everything I need for an astounding ASM2 suit

Thought I would share...

http://gunheaddesign.com/the-amazing-spider-man-2.html - For the design
http://www.fabricondemand.com/ - For the printing
http://www.therpf.com/f13/spiderman-...option-179568/ - For the lenses

All I then need is to talk my partner into making it for me. Luckily she is a dressmaker!

Had an idea on how to make an inexpensive face shell....

You will need plaster of paris bandages, a bucket of water and a friend.

My intention is to make a face shell that goes back to and covers the ears and goes down under the jaw. So essentially the entire front part of the head is cast.

When I get it done, I'll post some pictures. But I have to talk my other half into doing it...
