    Me (Samwise) & my partner Cynthia built this Hulk over the last few months... it's been a long-time coming, but we assembled our Avengers team at last on the weekend! We run an entertainment business using realistic costumes, and though we've had Iron Man, Black Widow & Captain America since our inception last year, we recently finished Thor & The Hulk to add to our Avengers!

    Take a look below!

    Our Hulk build after our first test-fitting! We were yet to velcro the pants to attach the torso & legs, and no morphsuit to fill in the neck!

    We are The Superhero Experience (www.facebook.com/thesuperheroexperience) - our full Avengers team debuted on Sunday the 12th after completing our Hulk & Thor costumes! As an entertainment group, we specialise in realistic costuemes, as well as acrobatic shows & high intensity fight sequences!

    Our Captain America & Spider-Man Stunts and Fight Shows:

    Hulk stopping a random car on the street. They didn't mind, they just kept taking photos!

    In all of the photos in this thread, Hulk is portrayed by a 6'0" performer. The suit raises the performer up 5 inches, so he becomes 6'5". Our regular performer is 6'3", so Hulk will generally stand at 6'8".
    Here are more photos from our gig, including Loki & The Winter Soldier!

    The build process!!
    We did the body-cast at the start of January, but we didn't get started on the suit until mid-February, and finished it on the 11th April! As always, since we had a deadline, the bulk of the work was done in the last few weeks.

    Big thanks to Biopredator; their Hulk build was of great inspiration to us. Initially we began following their process - after a while things began to take their own form and we adopted our own techniques and own process. The basics of it were a body cast with morphsuit on top, and lots of carving foam and gluing it to the suit.

    ^That's me in this photo here :) Me and my partner Cynthia were the co-creators of this build, but we mostly have other people modelling it later on! :) Also, our house was an absolute mess for months!

    The first coat of paint on the Torso, and test-fitting of the legs!

    First fitting of suit altogether

    And just when we thought we were done, we had to buy a new compressor for our airbrush, and thus spending nearly $200 on painting supplies in the final week!

    6'5" Hulk (during test-fit!) - 3 inches smaller than his full height will be :)

    On April 12th, we assembled our Avengers team for the first time at a Marvel Film Marathon in Sydney! (I'm in Iron Man at this point!)

    This morning we'll be taking them to the Childrens Hospital in Westmead for their first Starlight Foundation appearance :)

    It's been a hell of a start to the year, but we finally did it!

    Let us know what you think!!

    Next to come: AoU Captain America & updates to Iron Man/Black Widow to get them up to speed with their latest film designs! Age of Ultron is coming!!

    TSEAustralia,
    Nice Job man! Looks great, most don't know how much work you went through to make the Hulk. Great Dedication! :)
