sweet looking custom costumes!!
Ricky's back! Don't know what happened to him but you can find him on again on eBay at the following address:
He'll also be able to do single pieces if anyone needs them.
Man those are awesome! but also pretty expensive, wonder how much it would cost me to make my own......hmmmm....
Jbrown437 or anyone who knows. I am trying to find out where to buy the superman returns emblem to attach to my costume. Also if i buy it how do I attach it to my Lyca costume?
Again try Ricky at Custom Costumes, unless JBrown can help as his costumes are the most accurate I've seen. To attach Ricky's you'll need to sow a piece of pleather material matching the diamond shape of the \S/ and superglue the emblem to this. If you order from Ricky he should include the pleather shape but best to check as he may only include this on request.
Thanks again. I sent him a message. I hope I can get emblem. Also if anyone knows how would I make an emblem mold for future use and practice? what items is needed when making a mold?
Let us know how you get on. There's also the Bronze Armoury who sell them, though from the pictures I prefer Ricky's, his was also cheaper. Here's the link:
FYI I own a full SR costume and an emblem that I've attached to a t-shirt and both were ordered from Ricky.
I just bought a cape off of ebay for my custom superman costume. I will post a picutre on here when I get it. Sadly though I don't know when I will have time or money to get the other parts in need to complete it. But thats ok cause I know will find time to finish it.
I hope we get to see some inspirational costumes here with ideas to what Zack Snyder may create!
hi guys im brand spanking new here and i thought id introduce my self : im a huge superman fan always have been and always will be my mum told me that i was making her draw superman for me 24/7 until i could do it for my self i like seeeing superman redesigns as much as the old suit however in the movies the original-ish suit should stay none of the superman returns costume appealed to me but maybe some of you could point out facts that i realy didnt see ... also i hav recently tried to contact the designer of this superman redesign
i would really like to tackle this costume and look foward to the challenge if the designer allows me to go forth and bring it to life so maybe this could look cool what do you guys all think about this design and are there any tips for making a superman costume that are quintessential
the origin of the suit if this hasnt yet been answered is that is is made out of nearly indestructable material which was the blankets they found in supermans ship when he came to earth and his mum told him were to use his heat vision to cut and sew the strong mateerial
just a quick update to say that brohawk has given consent for me to make his costume and that i will post pics of the costume being made from scratch every now and again until i finish it i will start producing as soon as i get materials
\s/ rocks t:t:t:t:t:t:t:
Here is my 2nd attempt at a Supes costume.....nearly 4 years apart from the 1st attempt! Almost complete, waiting on boots I ordered, tweak the cape a bit and figure out if I want to keep the belt, make a new one or order one. I have a 2nd lycra top coming in a couple weeks and am going to make a more classic supes, with a gold and red "s" symbol (pictured below) with a gold belt and gold cape shield. I'll have 2 Superman costumes to wear when I got to the Metropolis Superman Celebration for the 1st time this year!
Better picture of the cape from a distance.
Not so big on the shiny spandex, I think it can make suits look cheap at times.
Here is an update on my suit. Changed the belt and the trunks. A few minor tweaks and she should be all ready for the upcoming summer con season!
A couple without the belt.
And the belt!
okay so what does everyone think about this colour blue in terms of which superman actors costume this is closest to personally imo i think chris reeves isthe closest in terms of costume ,,whad''ya think guys ?
heres the link to the product and yes i will be getting the headless version of this
hey dude was that the same cape that can be found on ebay or is it original i typed in superman cape the other day as im currently missing this part anda similar thing came up if not how did youdo yours as i really want to put the returns logo in yellow on my cape
Mine is homemade. The Returns "S" is craft foam glued onto the cape.
Here is a sneak peek at a couple of other costumes I'm working on:
Green Lantern (Hal Jordan) Power Battery
And my Thor start with the Mighty Mjolnir
Here is the start to my Thor. Going for an Ultimates/616 Hybrid. Waiting for a helmet in the mail to customize and working on the cape this weekend!
Hoping to have this finished up for the Superman Celebration next month, don't see why I shouldn't. Still finishing up the cape, just taped it on for now to see how it looked! One problem is the helmet. No matter what I try, I can't get one to turn out right....or decent at all. So I'm looking for a helmet....if anyone has any ideas or knows of anyone looking to sell or trade one lemme know.
Nice work on the costumes. I've been to a bunch of the Superman Festivals in Metropolis....it's a fun time. Be sure to check out the museum.
Here is my Green Lantern Classic Hal Jordan for Superman Celebration next week!
