We havent found any evidence that they actually were cricket pads used for the legs. No evidence that the undersuits werent scrtach built. Not saying those items werent used but we cant find a match anywhere...yet.
what model hockey gloves are those used for the suit?
I'm up here in Canada and if you need and help locating more let me know as well as any other hockey gear that may have been used.... i think i see white shoulder pad parts(the laced up thing on the chest)
a lot of used equipment and thrift stores!:thumbsup
If you would like to PM me, I can give you the details of a guy you might like to chat too.
I did a modelmaking course in the UK and my tutor was the modelmaker who worked on the original helmets. (he said).
The hockey gloves are Coopers. There are at least 2 versions in the film not including the kids. Dallas's have 2 seams running from fingers to wrist that are absent on Kanes..not sure about Lamberts.
The kids sized are different but I havent studied them quite yet.
The shoudler pads are Vintage coopers as well. I need about 10 sets of adult L or XL if you can come across these.
Thanks for the pic. Thats the initial costume that were using for refence material. Ea. suit has a few indiosyncracies so we may or may not copy ea. suit but may make a general costume based on our best reference material.
Man, what an awesome project!! The progress is looking amazing so far.
Are you planning to offer an entire suit? The soft parts as well as the armored areas and helmet?
I love the patina finish as well. Looks great!
Man..if I dont get a break at work ..weve flown 12 straight hours! People, stop hurting yourself!! Im ehausted now! I m gonna need a vacation just to get thru the front box....
We plan on doing 3 full sets of the costume and then well see what we can offer of the hard items. Darthwalls is helping with the undersuits. He just finished his Space 1999 suit of which we helped with the helmet etc. If you would like to contact him later about soft items hes a member here.
