    well , the title pretty much explains it all. thanks to the amazing Taylormacmanus, i can now start this...my first, costume project. the only thing is that halloween is only one week away, so let's see if i can complete this within that time. i just came across a printer here in los angeles who will get this printed to me in 2 days or less, so that's the first step. i'll be posting pictures as this develops. wish me luck guys!

    well i'm working on a quick muscle suit as we speak and i have to rearrange some pieces to slightly in the pattern to fit their machine, but will do that and it will go to print tomorrow, finished by wednesday, then probably getting sewn on wednesday or thursday. found a really decent way to make a muscle suit...pix coming soon.

    Re: Miles Morales Ultimate Spider-man costume (MUSCLE SUIT UPDATE PIX) 1 week challen

    ok soooo, my project got pushed back by a day when the bar i work at called me in to cover someone yesterday ,so i dropped off my file to be printed earlier today and they said it will be done tomorrow morning or this afternoon which is awesome. so i figured since all that's getting taken care of i should throw together this mucle suit. i'm a decently in shape guy, i'm just on the thin side, which is fine, but i want to look a bit beefier so i put my resources together and created a makeshift body suit.

    the suit consists of these lil puppies. 'active shaping technology' pads from andrew christian. 10 bucks for a set of 2. but it ended up being 5 bucks since i know someone who works there.
    [​IMG]

    i purchased an 11 dollar compression shirt (on clearance from 17 bucks) from target and stuffed some of the pads inside to play around with. oddly enough...it was EXACTLY the look i was going for. it enhanced my chest , biceps, triceps and calves. i think i'm gonna stick with the thermals i have as bottoms since they seemed to work just fine. what do you guys think?

    arm before and after (this is with a thermal, it's now replaced by a compression shirt)

    calve before and after

    full torso

    so far so good. i also purchased some green foam from joanns that i was going to use for the chest, but now i think i'm just going to use it to beef up my thighs a bit, since the pads did the trick for my chest. so far i'm more than pleased with this. so muscle suit was around 35-40 bucks total. not bad if you ask me. especially given my short timeframe :)

    Get some memory foam available at Walmart for $6 fo a 15" square piece, it has the perfect density for making foam muscles.

    also, any ideas for zipper placements? the one seamstress that was up on this task of making this suit now can't do it...sooo...it looks like i'll be tackling this myself. which isn't half bad because it seems decently straight forward, and i was forced to buy a certain yardage from the printer, so i'll most likely have two suits printed instead of the one. feel free to shoot out ideas guys. thanks

    People usually do it from the armpit, down the side and under the belt (which the Miles suit doesn't have) up to the other armpit. But the easiest way would be just straight up the middle of the back, i might be resorting to doing that for my Spidey costume haha.

    Re: Miles Morales Ultimate Spider-man costume (MUSCLE SUIT UPDATE PIX) 1 week challen

    Yeah I was thinking the same thing. I knew about the armpit/ back combo but with the absence of the belt I figured it would break up the continuity. So I guess a straight zipper would be best, especially if I'm doing it myself, it'll just be easier to navigate. Also, does anyone know if a regular sewing machine Will suffice for this?

    I've got a symbiote Spidey suit which has the zipper placed from the armpit around the belt line and up the other side and it doesn't look to bad at all. Great work on the muscle suit by the way! Would love to see it underneath a regular Spidey suit as well as the miles morales version.

    Re: Miles Morales Ultimate Spider-man costume (MUSCLE SUIT UPDATE PIX) 1 week challen

    Thanks! I would love to have the zipper there but if I'm gonna be sewing this myself then down the back it is lol. Yeah I'm happy with the muscle suit. There was nothing on here that didn't cost 700 bucks or that didn't look like a body builder in its finished state. So I figured I'd throw something cheap and effective out there for someone who wants a more natural look vs. An overly big appearance

    Yes and when placed under a compression suit you can hardly tell even at 1" thick, it's best to bevel the edges or sew the edges of the foam so it's thinner around the extremeties so it will blend in and avoid seeing the definition lines, Regular foam doesn't give the same results it;s too dense, memorie foam is very very soft and comforms way better.

    aaaand the pattern is printed. for some odd reason....we can't figure it out...the shading and bricking didn't show up on the fabric, which isn't a big deal to me, so meh, whatever. but yeah, 3 hour turnaround, i'm happy. so now i'm off to my friend's cousin who says she can sew this thing up for me, wish me luck...pix to come as more gets completed.

    The bricks and the shading didn't show up? That's weird! Other than that, the print looks good! I can't wait to see it all sewn. For the eyes, I used a grease splatter screen and spray painted it white, it worked pretty good!

    Silly question but are those the crotch or butt pads? I googled it and there are couple options. Don't wanna get wrong ones as they do great job on the bicep area.

    If your printer works in CMYK it could just be the difference in the Blacks. Even if all the blacks look different in RGB, if the black levels are the same once converted to CMYK, that will flatten it.

    It could also be that the printer doesn't have much range in the darker shades. So, if there wasn't enough contrast between the high and low tones, it might just appear to be flat.

    ...ORRRRR maybe your printer left off those layers. (If he had access to the PSDs)

    Anyhoo, looking great, man! Can't wait to see this puppy all sewn up.

    actually before taylor graced me with this pattern i was thinking of getting a zentai suit and somehow getting the red parts all done in urethane, but didn't have the resources lol. this is gonna come out sick though, i know. eeeeeven though i made a mistake and cut the fingers before the seamstress got to it :lol so now i think i'm just going to have her sew up to the wrist and then use fabric glue, or witch stitching to do the fingers since it will bunch up in a sewing machine lol
    i have no idea what that is, but i'm always up for a challenge lol

    pm sent !

    hey guys, does anyone have any back and side pictures of their hood? we're trying to figure out how the sides and backs of the hood connect, the webbing's a little weird in that area and i can't find any reference pix. also, is there any way to make the hood removeable? it's spandex and stretches , so should i just cut in the middle of the neck and stretch the bottom of the mask down to cover, or what? i realized i'm gonna have to be showing id..and partaking in drinks this weekend lol. i'm thinking i should have added an extra mask piece, but just need some ideas. thanks in advance!

    If you can wait until around 8PM when I get home from work, I can send you a great mask reference shot.

    And generally you should print a second set of mask parts for a removable mask so you can choose how much the neck overlaps. If you just cut it your neck will most likely show through.

    But for a party, no one should notice. :p

    Re: Miles Morales Ultimate Spider-man costume (PATTERN GETTING SEWN!!) 1 week challen

    yes, yes it is. we've been in an unofficial pm collaboration with this for a minute now lol. it started when i asked if anyone had thought of making the suit, and then he started the pattern, then i basically scavenged the earth to find a back reference shot, and then he finished it, now i'm executing it. lol. this may very well be the fastest spiderman suit made.

    yes!! that would be awesome, i just came across a video so i think i have it now. what i'm going to do is just see how tight the suit fits on my neck when it's completed , and if there's some bunching, then i'll cut, hem and make the mask removeable. if not, then , well, i'll just figure something out lol

    hey rich.... what about thin vertical strips of velcro that follow the webbing on the neck to hold the mask in place if you so decide to make it removable. that way its less notable and way more comfortable. lol jus sayin.

    you totally took the thought out of my mind. i know you're not supposed to use velcro on spandex because of the barbed side snagging ,but meh ,it's just a fun costume, and i'm going to need to drink, so i think i'm gonna do that

    sooo the costume is still getting sewn together but should be done by tonight, (the seamstress had some sewing machine issues), soooo while that's happening i decided to make the frames. i had to hand draw these since there were no templates for this style of frame, what do you guys think?

    [​IMG]

    these were just done with a sheet of foam i got for $.89 at michael's. i think they came out pretty decent for my first attempt. and if the red isn't deep enough i think i'm going to paint them. we'll see. also i got some white fabric today that i'm going to use for the actual eye itself.

    I usually hate the spidey costume changes that seem to come once a month now in the comics - but the Ultimates spidey suit is an exception. I loved it when I first saw it - so did my son. I can't wait to see how this baby turns out.
