Hey guys, i was shopping around for some items for our Peter and Gwen outfits, and I was shopping on H&M where i found LOADS of useful items for a good price (well, where i live clothing is really expensive so even with the currency change and shipping cost, it's still cheaper xD and easier to find too lol) the only con is that they only ship within Europe, so either you need somebody who can ship it to you, or be in Europe, otherwise it's no good u.u unless of course you have an H&M near you and can go pick these up :3 but i noted there were more items in the European site than in the US site.
Just to be clear, these are not the screen accurate items, unless otherwise noted.
For this outfit (minus the jeans)
Black Jacket: http://www.hm.com/gb/product/04005?a...-A&variant=004
Blue hoodie: http://www.hm.com/gb/product/97033?a...-P&variant=004
Camel shirt: http://www.hm.com/gb/product/01655?a...-D&variant=004
Blue thermal shirt: http://www.hm.com/gb/product/00468?a...-D&variant=004
Blue belt: http://www.hm.com/gb/product/99605?a...-A&variant=004
Light Blue Coat: http://www.hm.com/gb/product/97666?a...-D&variant=036
Brown boots: http://www.hm.com/gb/product/00569?a...rticle=00569-D
Teal Gloves: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Teal-Thinsul...item3a632af78c
I had found a nice sweater to go with it but it's now out of stock, the stockings are grey wool stockings, and she has a white shirt underneath.
Peter's boots from this and the previous outfits are Frye's Rogan Hiker boots, here's a link to Amazon
And Spiewak's Ash field coat, the closest I could find to Vince's, on Amazon
For other Gwen outfits, here are some items, the boots are the same for every outfit, she only wears something different in the rain scene, where she has some black Converse sneakers.
Last Scene Gwen
Polka Dot Blue dress: http://www.ebay.com/itm/320951518560...84.m1436.l2649
Blue Cardigan: http://www.hm.com/gb/product/00650?a...-B&variant=003
The screen accurate dress for this version is Marc Jacobs's dot dress, as stated by the user Gwen Stacy in a previous post n.n
School/Oscorp Gwen (the only difference is the lab coat, and that in the school she has a thin headband and loose hair)
Tweed Skirt: http://www.hm.com/gb/product/00028?a...-I&variant=036
The screen accurate dress is SAID TO BE Gap's printed tweed mini skirt, but I havent found a clear enough picture to be sure, the user Gwen Stacy has this skirt, so she might have better info on it :3
The navy blue/white striped shirt is out of stock too u.u they have a long sleeve version, you could wear it like that under the lab coat or cut the sleeves for the school version, the stripes are actually a lot thinner but i couldnt find a better match unfortunately
And add black stockings to the look.
I'm still looking into her leather backpack, if anyone has any idea please share T.T i've been looking like crazy lol.

I remembered today that I also have another board my brother gave me when I was 12 that's been laying around for years. It used to be a really nice board, but now the ends are all chipped up and the bottom is all nasty and splintery because I left it out in the rain a lot because I was 12 and irresponsible, haha. but I sanded it down smooth, marked up the bottom using a sanding wheel on my drill, spray painted it white, darkened the marks, did all the sketches and equations, and then scratched and smudged everything real good. I like the way it turned out, I just need to get some trucks and wheels for it. I'd like to just get a new nice board and do it the same way because I could make it look a lot better.
But anyway, here are the progress pics:
I got a little ahead of myself before I took this pic, haha.
I've considered breaking it in half... I can't decide if I want to or not.
I'm having buckets of internal debate over her boots. I've convinced myself they are leather as opposed to suede, but I can't make heads or tails of a particular brand that I like for them. There are a couple of distinctive traits that hers have which I haven't seen replicated anywhere else - most specifically being an inside zip, going up about halfway from the bottom to about mid calf or so. Very hard to find anything just so. I went for some good ones I found online, they're a more tan leather but I've got them up in the post I made before and I think they did the job.
For the knee/thigh high black stockings, save yourself a touch of trouble and look for boot liners. I found some that were relatively inexpensive and they look stellar when paired with the boots. They're meant to go up that high and hold up well.
Her Oscorp shirt is also giving me mild fits. When my new one comes in I'll do a super fast test run of everything. All I'm battling with now is printing out the OSCORP logo onto some transfer paper and ironing it onto a lab coat. Last piece that I have to handle!
Of course, then I took another look at this outfit:
and am now possessed with the desire to throw it together as well. SIGH.
Some good suggestions there Peytonriley. My Missus will be happy.
I'd have to agree with Gwen herself though and say that I reckon her boots are leather instead of suede.
I think the boots used might be Vince Camuto's Branden boots, the only thing off is that Emma's boots have a zipper on the inside and these dont, but I was telling Gwen they might have it cause Emma might have had a tough time putting them in if they didnt have a zipper, here's the link, you be the judges :3 Amazon.com: Vince Camuto Women's Braden Boot: Vince Camuto: Shoes
Frye's Betty boots might be a good choice too, these have a zipper so they are closer i think (more expensive too lol) Amazon.com: FRYE Women's Betty Boot: Shoes
Btw i LOVE your suit Redtogusa! You kick ass
not an exact screen replica of the jacket but i think its close,
Decorative zippers wind oblique long-sleeved leather jacket

Well my wife ended up going with these:

i don't know if you found the jacket yet but i did Buy Vintage Olive Drab Field Jacket at Army Surplus World this is the exact jacket from the movie or so they say on their Facebook page
Nice spaidy suit.
Hey guys, i know this isn't 100% accurate since her's a black brown in matte leather, rather than shiny, but this is a cheap option for a Gwen backpack :3
I'm either between buying a black one or buying a light brown one and trying to paint it darker, any thoughts?
