Hey there, hi there, howdy. Been a while since I have been here, been away in Army training and such, but I've recently been inspired to start a new costume, and I figured I could come here for tips, advice, and mental councilling if need be, lol.
Anyway, as you could have guessed from the thread title, I'm designing my own concept for a Deadpool costume. I'm not trying to change too much about the character's look, but make it a little more practical (skin-tight bodysuits just don't scream "mercenary")
Anyhow, I'll have pics of some of my concept sketches later, but for now, I think a description would suffice. Tell me what you think, and if you have any ideas better than mine, I'd love to hear them.
Anyway, for the body, I'm thinking a red long sleeved shirt under a black faux-leather vest that replicates the pattern found on his bodysuit. The problem I find here is having the red of the shirt match the red pants I would have to use. Any advice on what kind of shirt and/or pants I should use would be very much appreciated.
As for the mask, one idea I had was to build it as a dual-layered mask. Obviously, the outer layer would be red, and underneath, would be black. For the eyes, I was thinking of somehow permanently affixing silver mirrored lenses from some aviator sunglasses beneath the eyeholes of the black mask. Not white, I know, but I think it could look good if done right.
I have some ideas for accessories, some serious, some comical, but any suggestions there would also be welcome.
Anyway, I'm glad to be back, and I can't wait to get started on building this and showing you my progress from start to finish!
