I started costume making back in March, (when I first joined this site) with a black modified spiderman zentai. Then I made a modified Amazing Spiderman Zentai. Over summer, I decided that I wanted to make my own spiderman costume from scratch, especially because Im a 16 year old who doesnt have money to just throw around. I bought spandex, took my measurements, then subracted by 4 on everything so it would be very skin tight. The problem with the other Zentais was that they werent tight enough to be a cool spiderman costume, especially around the waist. No sewing machine, so it was aaaaalll freehand stitching from the start, baby. After all that, this was the result.
Then i Painted on muscle shading with sprat paint and the design with puffy paints, of course. I wanted the webs to look rugged and uneven, which also relieved the pressure of them being symmetrical. I used eye and hooks to keep the boots and gloves hooked in place. I bought my lenses from T Jack, of course. I used aqua shoes to make the soles. The Webshooters are made out of molded instamorph, which is pretty amazing by the way. The spiders are just cut up polyurethane. I spray painted the back Spider red and with transparent-ish iridescent paint too.
The butt became very stretched out after putting it on, but it looks fine when its on my body, which is all that matters.
Then it appeared to be done here:
But the way the belt connected to the red, I hated it. So I made that part black, but I dont have such a good pic here of it.
And The best picture of all.
Do dont have any official training in textiles at all, but i wanted to try this. I hope you all like it.
