Dye-sub? so they're flat. The pic makes them look a bit fuzzy. Is is out of focus? Also, how do they look when stretched across a body?

BatDemon - yup Dye sub. might be a little out of focus.. i'm not knowen for my photography, so far it hugs the body really well.

sorry, I meant do the diamonds distort much when stretched on the body or has that been taken in account with the print?

NWJedi- Ebay, unless you what to buy tons of baseball cards hoping to get one of the swatch cards.

not a great deal no. there is some minor distortion as it conforms around the body but thats to be expected

I am going to make the suit but tailor it to make it look good on ME, Those tiny panty looking shorts Routh wears would make me look silly... I am all for movie acuracy but I am willing to make a few exceptions to prevent public humiliation. ;)

Cant wait to see your work Corpseguy..

So, who's doing the boots?
[/b]
noone to my knowledge. Someone tried getting a favorite bootmaker to make some, but the response he got was something like not enough interest at this time and mor importantly,(I give credit to the maker, here) they couldn't replicate the sole. Someone did make their own veriosn for their fan costume,though.

I received my topps cards today....first impression.. the lights make the suit look a lighter shade than the swatch. oh, the diamonds ARE slightly raised...screenprinted, I'm sure.

The boots are being done by a fella on the BOTB and he is custom sculpting them. He is nearing completion and I will keep you all updated.

I found this on Ebay:


It's a Collector Card with an actual Swatch of the Real Fabric Used.
[/b]
that's the swatch we've been talking about.....the color and scale of the swatch looks way different than pics onf the costume on Routh...lighting and stretching of the fabric is what I'm gathering. I do like how none pf the cards i've seen pics of have the fabric oriented correctly. Mine is sideways that one is upside down.

Awesome work. Any chance you can do this in dark gray for the spaceship suit? Red, yellow and blue couldn't clash harder with my flesh tone, but I'd like to have a dark gray top with the 3D logo.

I was able to get one of the Superman Topps cards in a Trivia contest and the diamonds on the suit are very slightly raised.

I was wondering if the grey suit would also be in the making. In the movie it looks just a duplicate of the blue one with out the briefs, belt, cape and boots.

I had to laught. I have seen this movie 3 times in 3 days and I noticed something.

In the hospital, I think they know what Supermans suit looks like because it has the same design as his suit with the diamonds all over except the are multicolored. I'm not sure about this but I'll check next time I see it.
