Since I'm only a few more days away from getting my MCL34N ASM suit (SO EXCITED BTW) I decided to start this thread for my very own reveal pictures and personal review.
I also realized It's been almost 10 years to the day since I got my very first suit made. I thought it'd be fun to do a trip down memory lane and visit each one again. Most of these are gone now, some of them were actually made by and/or for other people. I only kept the OLLIE suit which I felt to be the definitive Raimi suit. That, along with my new ASM suit will be all I need to have an AMAZING collection!
So without further a do...Here's the pics!
Check out the time stamp - almost 10 years to the day!
Old school pics since it was before I even owned a digital camera. This suit was made by a seamstress for me, I actually airbrushed the muscles onto it and eventually upgraded the mask to latex webbing and better, more accurate eye frames as they became available. Not too shabby for my first suit, wore it a couple of times for Halloween back in the day.
My next suit was leaps ahead, Made by a fella going by the name of Spider-Ham. This is the suit I owned but not me wearing it, for some reason I couldn't find those pics. I think they are on a CD somewhere.
My next suit (circa 2004) was also made by Spider-Ham and I wore it to Dragon-Con that year. Got into the Masquerade but won nothing
I purchased urethane webbing from Bob Causey and upgraded the whole thing. I don't know if you can tell from the pictures but I actually attempted to do a face shell with magnetic frames. I could never really get them to align correctly though...The cool thing was I could switch out my frames though and I made a couple of different looks for it.
Circa 2005-6 I started taking commissions on suits for doing all the web gluing labor and eventually even produced my own prints and offered to have them sewn (by a seamstress I knew) and kept purchasing urethane webbing sets and frames to lay in myself and deliver a fully finished suit. I sold about 3 and eventually got very burnt out by the process as school got a little more demanding.
The finished product:
The suit on the very left was the third Spider-Ham I came to own.
More after the jump.
