Sep 19, 2012, 10:21 PM - Deadpool Costume
This is my first post. I am in the process of making a high quality Deadpool costume and wanted some input. so far I have my mask basically complete and am waiting for a few materials from ebay to start the costume.
I was going for a bit of a mean look. It's spandex over a Neoprene balaclava (from ebay) I bought the balaclava as it had a defined jawline.)
I went to Fan Expo in Toronto for the first time and wished I had dressed up so next year I will be ready!

Very nice mask, very unique way of tackling it! Looks great!

I love this mask....... It's the kind of deadpool mask I've always wanted
Is it hard to make?

Well considering I have next to no experience in making things like these I would say yes it was very dificult! It took me a solid days work but I was really into and even forgot to eat :S I will post my process in the future unfortunately I didn't document it very well along the way.

My boots came in today!, They are motocross boots. Fotunately the were among the cheapest on ebay but they actually lend themselves perfectly to my vision! I just need to take care of those logos...if memory serves deadpool doesn't have any sponsors.
So far so good, I am hoping to work of a muscle suit this weekend, I'll keep posting updates for all who are interested.
I'm new here so if possible can anyone tell me how to add a photo directly into my reply so I don't have to keep linking to flickr?

I'm also interested in making the fabric darker. My initial thought as a light dusting of either black or very dark red spray paint. but if anyone has a better idea I'm all ears. I have a pair of under armour pants and a shirt and the reds don't quite match perfectly so I need to even the field a bit. of course i have no intention of using the under armour alone. I'm getting some sewing experience adding a tight knit mesh where the black portion of his costume is. (any thoughts on that idea?)

Just an update, i worked on my muscle suit. I have no idea what was going through my head when i chose yellow foam over the exact same foam in red...but well here we are.
As you can see in the pics you can see not only the outline of the foam but also the colour behind the fabric :S Aside from that I like how the shape is turning out. what I may do is just buy a secon pair of pants and just put them right over these ones. (I do have a concern about how warm that may be though)
Please excuse the black shirt as my red one hasn't arrived yet. I've also got fabric to enhance the look.

I have gloves. I needed to shave off the logos of course...still wondering how to go about the same thing on the boots. I'll have pics of the gloves up soon. Really the main part I am waiting for is a shirt...as soon as it arrives I will post a pic of everything together...Still far from done of course...Plenty of sewing left to do as the spandex look isn't going to cut it.
Sep 27, 2012, 8:41 AM - Re: Deadpool Costume
OK, the gloves. I shaved off the thor logo. I love these! so much better than plain spandex gloves. again the only issue i will need to tackle is making sure all of the reds match.
I also found ankle weights that will work beautifully as ammo pouches when attached to my belt. I do need to dye it from grey to black. I'm getting axioms for the shirt I ordered to come in... once it does I will take a shot of everything put together...it will finally start looking like deadpool!

Wow, it was a big day today! I got my belt my wrist guards and my neck guard! Again I need to do something about logos... I'm getting a little frustrated as the red under armour shirt I ordered a month ago has still not come in! Really without that everything else kinda just falls apart...doesn't look anything like deadpool if I don't have a red shirt...Soon Enough...worst case I bite the bullet and buy something close as sport check.

Alright. I have most of the major elements in I decided to put them all on. No keep in mind aside from my mask I Havn't really done any tweaking to the part. But rest assured i will. This is my big jumping off point. if anyone has any opinions of my progress so far please I would love to hear them.

Cool I like the boots!
I am working on a Terra Nova Security Costume but need to get extra money for boots. I had some that broke and gave them away for free I could have used them lol.
How are you taking off the logo??

If you stare at that big block of random text long enought, you'll see an image! Get real close to the monitor!
Dec 23, 2012, 7:54 AM - Re: Deadpool Costume
That I have had trouble with. I figured I could throw it under a heat press and then peel it off...but no dice.
Fortunately my change in direction has offered me a way to hide it.
Dec 23, 2012, 11:19 PM - Re: Deadpool Costume
That's actually looking pretty good! Love the way you did the eyes!
Dec 24, 2012, 11:20 AM - Re: Deadpool Costume
Here is the shoulder brace I Mentioned. I Photoshopped it in for now...I'll need to buy two and do a little fanagling to get it to work though but I think it'll give it a really good look.
