Hi all,

I finally bought a mannequin for my Superman 3 Evil Suit # 18632


This picture was taken at night with a pure white fluorescent bulb, no flash.

This picture was taken during the day, with sun light entering the room. Notice difference in color. First picture is closer to true colors.

This suit can be seen during the filming of the bar scene till right before Superman flies off. This was filmed in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
The junkyard scene was filmed a different time in the backlot of Pinewood Studios in England. Not sure which was filmed first.

May I asked where you go the mannequin at?

The Mannequin is by Roxy Display # MC-BRADY03.
I chopped the head off, because it didn't look right and looks better without one. I will eventually cover the opening. Website writes that mannequin is 75" (6'3") tall, but when I measured it, it was about 6'4"-6'5" tall. Mannequin is really muscular and broad shouldered, and really stretches the suit out. You can kinda see through to the mannequin, especially with the flash on since it has a gloss finish. I probably might paint it satin black.

I have ALWAYS wanted to do this particular suit for Halloween because then people wouldn't look at me strange being unshaven and drinking. Unfortunately in the bar industry now a days no body would get the reference and I'd just be asked why I was wearing a dirty Superman costume.
