Re: Some Recent work on MAN OF STEEL Movie accurate suit .

Hey Leslee, Saw the video, the material is SUPER, doesn't loose shape when stretched.

As for the cape, its coming quit good, but I do have a couple of points: It looks like the cape in the original costume is tucked on both ends, and the material clearly looks dark red Velvet.

What do you think?

Yes.... i also keep watching the video before making my cape ... it really looks like Velvet material , similar looks to the The Dark Knight cape as it shiny reflect with light . And also it look like only thin layer . But i will follow the way that on the tour suit display that most of members see in person .

The material just sits on top and as affixed with straps/Velcro and magnets...pretty close to how he has it.

The material is a two sided micro suede from those who have seen it in person.

The Micro suede fabric that i used is only one side ..... not sure that i can find 2 sided ... any source ?

If you have the metal emblem blu ray tin there's a extra disc that follows alongside the film and shows and talks you thought how they made the film it talks and shows how the cape was done.

Thanks bro , i will get that Blu Ray soon . :D

Tip ; the movie cape is actually medium to dark crimson red, and you are right on the microfiber suede lol!

Thanks.

I think the crimson color we sometimes see in the movie is due to post-processing after the movie was filmed.

I don't have the disc kapow7 is referring to, but in this clip (at around 35-36 seconds in)
Man Of Steel Behind The Scenes - Stunts (2013) - Superman Movie HD - YouTube

You can see someone taking the cape off, and shortly after you'll see some green-screen stuff which shows the actual post-processed footage in the bottom right corner... You can see how the post-processing changes the cape color to make it appear more of a darker red. Put it at 720p and full screen it for a better look

So AJ, are you going to be sharing some pics of your work on that undersuit?

Thanks bro ...i also watched this video previously and decided to make the cape fix to the shape , as u can see the person taking off the cape , as its still in the shape , not like in the movie as it looks simple as a thin layer .... also noticed that most of the scene , the cape might be added by CG ( Not sure ) cause with some making scene that Henry performing stunt , there are both RED dots on the shoulder belt , that might be the marking dots for CG ? Thats my thought . :unsure

I've seen the screen-used suit in-person, masked rider's pretty good on the color. The cape is post-processed to look darker in the film.

Re: Some Recent work on MAN OF STEEL Movie accurate suit .

Im gonna have to agree on the microfiber suede and cor. Yes there's the difference between reality and Digital Grading. So, Im gonna have to agree on the microfiber suede and colour.
But what about the cape in terms of attachment?

I will attach my cape with Velcro belt or direct glue Velcro on the shoulder and also sew on the cape , like pics that i previously post .

I made this small aluminium clips , this is to put inside the small space of the shoulder armor , so the clips will cover inside the neck shoulder piece , and stay in place .

Is Pannaus supplying emblems for your completed suit run?

Thanks bro... Yes..I've previously order 10 emblems from him.. 5 pcs only the RED "S " and another 5 pcs finished emblem. I've also tested a special rubber gold paint custom mixed from my paint supplier. It works great on the fabric printed with chainmail. So , guess we have the accurate chest emblem to go... thin layer without the yellow piece.

Stunning details man, looks fantastic.

Thanks bro.. glad u like it.. ;)

That's wonderful news! Any chance that paint could work on the boots as well?

Re: Some Recent work on MAN OF STEEL Movie accurate suit .

My girlfriend's friend was at the legends studio workshop where they still had concept pattern pieces. There was originally even a second chainmail design concept. And even a darker red blended with a pewter tone red for cape. She did say colour was stated crimson red. Cape was never post processed other than when it was full cgi. Also the warner costume tour suit was not even actually used in the movie. It was used only in preproduction final test shots. Its crazy all the back and fourth information out there. Always good to go by micheal wilkinson's words too lol!

Fair enough, but the entire film has had some intense digital color grading, I didn't mean that they specifically changed the color of the cape, I meant the cape looks different in person than it does on screen because of the post-processing.
leslee's cape is indeed crimson red.

Ive done airbrush some tone effect on the gold , so now it looks more accurate and metal look . :D

Looks awesome. Can't wait to see it attached to the suit! Do you think you'll be able to do a similar effect on the yellow portion of the S?
