Shazam! Costume Help


New Member
Hi everyone, I know, long time no see and I miss you all! Luckily now my schooling and job is giving me a little more time to do some costume work.

I've already made a Marvel cosplay so I think its time to give DC some love as well. This time I really wanted to work on my sewing so I'm going to use my favorite hero of all time, SHAZAM!

Sadly, there seems to be a little bit of an issue with this project, I am a small person, around 5' 5" 150 lbs avergae body. I really would like to do a Shazam, Mazahs or even Freddy Freeman, but I feel like I dont have the body type for this. I really want the costume to look good and make it something I'm proud of.

My question is should I try the costume, find a different character or god forbid hit the gym

Dude, do what you want. If you are happy with it, that's the important thing. I am in the 501st and we encourage people to build what makes them happy. You will occasionally get the "aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper" but it's all in good fun. I love the character and will be impressed just to see it come to life regardless of the size it is. Besides, at a con most looking at the costume will be kids and you'll still be a giant to them!
