    Jun 1, 2011, 5:33 PM - Black Panther Costume #1

    I've been thinking for the past year what costume I've been wanting to do from a couple of my favorite Marvel characters.
    I've chosen Black Panther!


    I already have my own reference pictures of his current costume in The Man Without Fear series where he has the vest and gold claws and other accents.

    For the base of the costume I need help for a more heroic figure that isn't shiny.
    Like the popular spider man costume.
    Any ideas on the specs and full body 'spandex' suit I should purchase?

    Do you want no shine at all? Like a matte spandex or a tricot knit perhaps?

    Might also consider a wetsuit, or something similar in texture, they are generally less shiny I feel than spandex.

    Yeah no shine really.
    A wet suit sounds good. Especially if I can get it full body and all black.

    But with a wet suit could be expensive.

    Anyone know what material is used for the spider man costume?
