    Dang this is your 2nd costume isn't it Longest? Didn't you post one on the Marvel boards of the Coipel costume?
    By the way what's the helmet made from, not the wings but the actual Head part?

    I'll tell you...you would definetely scare little children with your very convincing aesthetic. And a few elderly people too.

    I've seen all kinds of Joker attempts over the last couple of years but your's comes the closest to the real deal.:awesome:

    I worked at a Renaissance Faire Tell me about it. Tight's, when they were needed, were expensive! I only used mine tending bar and managing a shop.

    @ TheLongestDay: Looks awesome man! I think the LEDs are inspired. Plus you got the locks and baby blues to match. The Joker costume is unreal. Thanks for posting both.

    First, I'm not too fond of what I've seen so far of Thor's costume. I would ideally prefer his movie duds to reflect John Buscema's artwork from the 70s. I'm OK with the chain-mail outfit, though. I just don't like his whole biker-look, with the leather pants and black work boots. Is Disney trying to make him into a "common man" or something? And if Iron Man is allowed to have armor, why can't Thor have his traditional yellow boots? And I sure hope he has his winged helmet. Thor without his helmet is almost as bad as Thor without his hammer.

    I don't know if you've seen the trailer, but I'd suggest you find it and check it out. He clearly is not being made to be "the common man". He looks and acts very brash, arrogant and extremely self-confident. I don't think black pants/boots=common man either!
    He does have his helmet! Again, check out the trailer. He's wearing it in a couple shots and yes it has wings.

    You know what, the trailer'll be out pretty soon anyways. Probably with Tron. I'm sure one of the helmet shots will make it in.

    I've deliberately denied myself the luxury of seeing the bootleg Thor trailer, since I want my first experience of seeing the big-screen Thor to be at the movie theater in all its big-screen excitement with buttered popcorn and Coke in hand - not a cheap quickie-look online. Seems to me that's like peeking at your Christmas presents in your parent's closet the day before Christmas. However, I'm pleased to hear that Thor has a helmet after all. I'm still not crazy about his outfit from the waist down.

    I think the outfit looks perfect for a live action "Thor" film. The yellow boots & blue pants would not translate well to the silver screen.

    Those "biker boots" were just for concept art, the final version of his shoes are still black but they're shaped very similar to the yellow boots from the comics.

    Think about it, black pants with black & slightly red boots look MUCH better with a black shirt & red cape. You gotta remember these Marvel movies are set in a "semi realistic" world.

    Yellow boots and blue pants with a black shirt & red cape? The general audience would laugh at that outfit. Trust me, Thor is my favorite superhero but some changes are for the better.

    What is unrealistic about yellow boots and blue pants?

    Taste and good fashion sense are another matter entirely.
