Funkster's ASM1 Symbiote - Pattern by Grampsee, webs by El Fett, sewn by TrophyWife

After having so much fun in my Kino ASM2 suit and being inspired by Grampsee's build - http://www.therpf.com/f78/spider-man-symbiote-suit-build-210215 - I decided to go down the symbiote route.

Keen to try and avoid the "black pajama" look of some plain symbiote suits I looked at a few different variations.
I looked at a Taylor McManus print, tried my hand at modifying Ken's ASM2 file and contacted El Fett about one I had seen him do,

I finally settled on Grampsee's pattern but asked him to remove the muscle shading and to invert the colours on what would be the blue sections of the ASM1 pattern
He was great and I ended up with this.

I did try and use a UK company for the sub-dye, but after 2 sample prints, one of my modified Ken file and one of Taylor's print, coming back as just black, off to FOD it went

As well as my normal 9-5, I am also an Ironman triathlete and train about 12-20 hours a week.
Add to that a lovely GF whom I want to spend time with and the fact that my painting skills are not the best, I was concerned about the 80-100 hours of painting required.
This meant only one thing............CALL EL FETT (well PM him)

Not wanting to pay extra shipping/customs (once to me $50, once to El Fett) I decided to gamble and get the print sent straight to El Fett.
I was banking on his expertise in recognising a bad print and letting me know.

Email from FOD said the pattern was being printed this week.

Imagine my surprise this morning, as I got a PM from El Fett saying they had my print, and had completed one leg already!!

Obviously (he says hoping) the flash makes the black dye pattern look lighter, but I was considering some over-dying anyway.

Updates to follow

Nothing too much at the minute.

El Fett estimates about mid February for the suit to be fully painted.

Am just looking at faceshell options at the minute

Okay, so El Fett thinks he'll be done by the end of the month.

Now onto other matters.

Lenses

2 options here really.
I can use my Oracle faceshell and lens combo for a ASM2 type look or he also does a frameless Scarlet Spider lens.

They could be made without the extra sections on the top/nose

That would make it more like this

Shoes

Again options here.

I could go down the ASM1 route and paint a pair of Dirt Dogs
I could just attach a sole from some wet shoes
or
I could use the same as my ASM2 and have a pair of shoes inside and then a flat sole glued to the outside

What we thinking?

well I meant you can get any of them, even tjacks and just paint the frames white

Yeah I get that, just not sure the white frames look that good,

Grampsee / Brandon went for black ASM2 frames and lenses

Oracle's are easy to get for me as I'm in the UK and if I order from TJack, I get hit with customs

I'd go with the frameless option, I think those would look super cool on a symbiote suit

Well I've ordered the frameless ones from Oracle. We'll see when they arrive.

Have decided to go with shoes inside and a sole outside, similar to my Kino ASM2 suit and Lunaman's Ultimate.

Now just need a seamstress.

TrophyWife hasn't got back to me yet, but El Fett says he may have someone.

And is in the UK.

Should be here in the next day or so.

Onto lenses now.

My frameless ones from Oracle are out as the visibiliuty was almost zero for me and my eyesight - shame as they looked so good.

Options now are

- Oracle's comic style (ordered but not arrived)
- My Orcale ASM2s
- Comicsuitfactory ASM2 mirrored lenses
