    Hey,
    What costumes are you guys doing, if any? A Spidey group would be cool to see! You know, different Spidey duds and villains, too!!:spidey:

    I have never seen a decent looking Spoider-Man costume. In fact, 99.999% of all superhero costumes I have seen look like crap. Anime fans have a much better sucess rate, they actually manage to look good most of the time.

    I used to think that too. I've only seen the costumes on the internet though. These guys did really awesome ones. http://www.gothampublicworks.com/

    That means you have never seen me at the Philly Cons and I do the spider and a couple others, you sure you can say they all look like crap?

    I have come to Philly Con and the other majors across country for about 5 years now, and I get some great reviews on what I wear.

    those don't look too bad, btu noi, I haven't seen you.

    The principle problem though is that most Superhero costumes inherently look silly when portrayed in real life. That's why most movies change things. I can certainly suspend my disbelief enough to enjoy a film like Superman or Spider-Man, but when it comes down to brass tacks, you still gotta say to yourself "this is some fruit in red and blue pajamas."

    When dealing with costuming I always say to each their own. But to talk it is one thing, but to walk it is totally another thing.

    I REALLY REALLY want to go in a Scarlet Spider costume. Problem is....I don't have one.

    So I'll probably just wear my Punisher t-shirt and register my name for the convention as Frank Castle. lol
