Description
OK FIRST OFF THIS IS GOING TO BE FUCKIN EXPENSIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well this is for May expo 2011 for the masquerade groupy! and just generally fun times! my GF Fables is doing Arisia see so it should be a laugh.

This is because Ranma 1/2 is powering on with his star saphire and I would hate to make a crap costume when his is gonna be so radical!

Planning on working with a lot of Urathane rubber for the mask and emblem. :)

Let me know your thoughts!

Luke.

Come on steve...do I need help with lats? XD haha erm tbh im all about alex ross which shows heroes as real as possible, showing supermans strength as an extension of his Kryptonian skin cells as opposed to him being hugely ripped. im a classic sort of person, so take it as the icon for this costume, or check alex ross green lantern and you will see what I mean :)

not a big latex fan...its a bit...smelly and gimpy if you get me? the closets your gonna get is the mask being cast from Urathane Rubber :P and the emblem! urrrg! cant wait ^^

Oh yeah I remember now ..the Alex Ross treatment.
Hmm Latex rubber does smell ..rubbery, there's no getting around that.

Urethane Rubber..Oh I see in journal. Looks cool! Presume it is held on with theatrical glue?
