    I've been dying to have a Quicksilver shirt, but nobody's made one to my liking yet so I started working on my own. I obviously can't get my hands on the same material used in the film because it was custom woven.

    Here's the design file

    I've already sent it off to FOD and it's in the process of being printed. I'll update the thread when I receive the print.

    I created the design file myself. I found hi-res photos of the shirt and Re-created each style of knit by hand. It's very very accurate.

    The design looks great! I thought the first picture was of the actual print.

    I can't wait to see it finished.

    Do you plan on putting up the pattern for use here? Or is it private?

    I definitely plan on selling the digital file :) I'm just waiting to sew the first print so I can fix any errors in the design.

    I haven't landed on a final price yet. This is a very intricate design in which I hand drew the different knit types.

    Totally. I almost called to swap my order for the $200 ones, but I just couldn't justify spending that much on sneakers for a casual cosplay.

    Gorgeous shoes! Definitely would buy it.

    Also there's an actual quicksilver compression shirt online. About 90% accurate but I reckon you could easily mod it. They're currently out of stock which sucks, argh!

    As for the rest will you dye your hair white or get a wig?

    The sleeves on the UA are totally off, but the bigger issue is the color. Thejackemoore's is probably the most accurate one I've seen yet.

    Yeah, I've got the Under Armor. It's all grey and the sleeve design is very different. It's a great workout shirt, though :p

    I'll be trying to find a decent wig.

    Can't wait to see your design(and price) of the shirt! I'm going as Quicksilver to ComiCon and I can't stand any of the shirts that are available online. I do have one question though, what do you plan on doing for the pants, as those are customized. I was thinking of sewing something together, but I don't think we ever get a clear shot of the back of his pants in the movie.

    Can somebody please tell me what pants quicksilver wears? Judging from the materials and the shape it seems to be a cross between track suit bottoms and minimal protection motorcycle pants. Maybe their custom made but I highly doubt it. I've been trying to find them for ages and any help is greatly appreciated

    The pants are just a dark denim with some other fancy stuff on it. I'll just be buying a pair of dark jeans and sewing stuff on top.

    Thanks for the insight man btw the White Lightning bits on the chest piece appear to be reflective material like the stuff used in cycling clothes for night. To my understanding you can purchase sheets of it online if you wish for the authenticity or just put normal white Lycra instead

    It's not. The white shapes are a regular fibrous material. This is a hi-res photo of the actual shirt.

    I will only be selling the digital file. I made this shirt to my measurements, and I'm not much of a pattern make so I wouldn't be able to scale this to fit different people.

    Just got the print in! I can definitely see some areas that need color tweaking to account for FOD's printing process making the design darker. I'll be sewing it up tonight to find any alignment or pattern issues. Then I'll make my tweaks to the file and make a thread in the classifieds.

    Looks good! But lack the texture that the actual one has. Yet still very well done! You didn't include the under armour logo at the back there did you?

    This is looking great!! I had a question though how did you create the patterns Wanted to do a Destiny titan undersuit but not to sure how to go about making a pattern for it.

    The texture is there, but isn't visible because of how dark FOD printed it. I do have the UA logo, but it will be removed when I sell the pattern for legal reasons. If you have the know-how, you can easily add it yourself.

    i hand drew the texture in Photoshop and then made it into a repeatable pattern. You can look up photoshop tutorials for repeatable pattern.

    ----------

    I sewed the shirt up last night. Only some slight pattern tweaks need to be made.

    I see it now. Not bad. But not feeling the turtleneck at all.. The back is still kinda off. Missing the lines at the center.. Still hoping someone brave can modify the one from Under Armour. That one is still the closest to the material used in the movie..

    On of the pictures show the top without the turtleneck. Even then you can still always cut it off I guess

    1) Can't wait to see how the final looks!

    2) Has anyone else looked into the HUMMEL Jacket that he wears at the beginning of the film? Its apparently a women's, and I'm wondering about the fit...

    I'd actually like to print this out on some kind of synthetic to make it sweat-wicking and functional. Just to go running in....:cool

    Looking awesome dude!

    I've been looking for a screen accurate shirt as well but may end up just getting the under armor. However I found this on eBay
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Avengers2-A...t=LH_DefaultDomain_0&var=&hash=item2a51e52158

    Havent' seen anybody here mention this one and it looks accurate to me I think (expect the grey on the stomach area instead of navy, it's even got the thumb holes which I'd really perfer to have....what does everybody think?

    I found some pretty neat fabrics online, which are very close to the fabrics of the original costume in terms of structure and color.

    I was searching the whole day for some print stores, where i just could print the pattern on spandex or stuff, since i didn't found any good in my local fabric stores.
    Somehow i found my way to this thread. When i saw the post with the UA Shirt i was just like 'i think i just forgot about something important'.

    So i started another online search with these: "thermal knit" "thermal fabric" "thermal stretch fabric", since that is what the UA is made of, isnt it?

    And guess what: You find a lot of great fabrics. I just ordered some here:

    www.naturesfabrics.com

    and

    https://www.fabric.com/apparel-fashion-fabric-knit-fabric-thermal-knit-fabric.aspx

    I don't know if i'm the first one to find those, but i think these are pretty good. Since I'm german, i probably need to wait for some time until they arrive, but i will definitely tell you when they're here!
