Costume Information

Description
I know, yet another Superman suit from yours-truly, but I can't help but show my love for the big blue boyscout. He's one of my favourite superheroes of all time. That and I've had this suit for some time, lying around half finished, so thought I'd go ahead and finish it up. Maybe I'll even get around to putting a Clark Kent suit together like the one Brandon Routh wears in the movie.

DO NOT USE COSPLAYFUL.COM (Posted 26th October 2010)

Ok, so, 2 pairs of ill-fitting Superman Returns boots later, and I get an email from Philip Shanz at Cosplayful.com saying their "auditing team" won't let me get my boots remade, even though I can't get either pair on my damn feet! GRRRRRR

I'm not gonna get into the details, but frankly I'm disappointed that, with accurate measurements of my feet, they couldn't make a single pair that FIT! DO NOT go near them, they won't do good work for the money you pay them.

Nuff said

Boot Camp (Posted 23rd September 2010)

The boots arrived, and look great, but didn't fit at all! I sent the folks at Cosplayful a rather upset email, and they've offered to remake the boots for me entirely, which I'm much happier about. I've since sent them VERY precise measurements of my feet and calf, and hopefully the new boots will fit MUCH better.

Upgrades (Posted 14th September 2010)

Got these lovely new boots on the way. My old ones were awesome to look at, but WAY too small for my size 13 feet. So got these beauties commissioned and they're on their way. I've also recently got 2 new bodysuits to choose from, a light blue and a royal blue. I'll try out both, but I think I may go for the royal. We'll see.
