|Well many might say this is a VERY easy costume and partly they would be right, the design is simple as hell! but its soooo easy to make it look cheap and tacky. Sooooo as such I have thought of a few ideas to make it look more like a costume.|
Superboys costume is youthfully arrogant and its easy to see why he dosent just yet want to be associated with Superman that much. As such instead of getting the DC direct T-shirt which is fairly accurate. I have opted to get a tight fitting black shirt and making a plain red S from Vinyl. Vinyl is a popular material that pro costumers use for alot of their costumes. Its not as heavy or difficult than casting one out of Rubber Urethane and its much easier to attatch.
I will be putting more in my journal when I put it up.
Thanks guys! love to hear your thoughts!
UPDATE! - I have decided I will probably be wearing this casually around Kitacon 2011 or mabye if we decide to go out for food as its fairly non descript.
Compression Shirt (Posted 21st March 2011)
Well since im not alltogether happy with my body at the moment XD still trying to get into shape! its gonna be full steam after april but until that time im left deciding what to do. Well I have had advice from some Superhero costuming chummies in the US that Compression shirts work well for shaping your body if you have fairly broad shoulders. Well I am gonna be testing one out next saturday and tring it on underneath my Shirt and seeing how it looks, if it pulls me in a little I will be taking the shit in accordingly as its quite baggy now *new I should have gotten the Medium! never listen to people trust your instincts* so yeah! fingers crossed!
Well I bought myself a little something somthing. (Posted 11th January 2011)
I caved and got a bit of money knocked off the DC Direct shirt so I decided to buy it at such a cheap price. This is partly for the tester shots but also because I kinda just want the shirt for regular wear ^.-. So until I get the Legion Buckle made 100 percent decent! I will use this shirt for now. The buckle is main priority for this particular costume ^.-
Legion Buckle! (Posted 19th November 2010)
Well gonna be wearing a Legion buckle and ring to make it a bit more fun! and be a bit more like Connor in the Legion of 3 worlds! XD I know you dont see him wear a buckle/ring in that but im taking creative licence! XD haha But hopefully getting it made by Friend Laban who does stellar work!
Vinyl S Emblem! (Posted 19th November 2010)
Well I have a friend in the US of a that can make Vinyl S's and got offered one for my shirt. So I decided this would be a great opportunity to get a size accurate one that wasnt the official shirt *as its slightly smaller* so I will probably be attatching it with some velcro to get that embossed superhero emblem look to it. This also means I can was the shirt without damaging the Vinyl in the wash and can replace the shirt when it gets old. so yeah im resonably happy with what im doing right now! good ideas progress! and we are on the way ^^
