    Hey guys, what's up?
    A few months back, me and my friends decided to organize a Halloween Party, and I decided to go as Spidey. So I bought the fabric and paid a dressmaker to sew the suit. That's how it is currently:

    I have a few problems now:
    1) How do I posicionate the lenses?
    2)What do I use as model to puff paint the head (and the body as well)?
    3) What is the best paint to use for the webs?

    Your next move from here would be to either free hand the webs or get a template and trace them on to the suit using a marker, and then puff painting over them. And for the blue I would add a brick pattern there which you maybe able to trace as well.

    Thanks, but should I use something like a mannequin to trace or it isn't necessary?

    Like putting the suit on a Manny and then tracing the webs on it? I'd recommend it for sure.

    A full body can go over $100, if price is a issue make a duct tape manny. Much much cheaper but you'll need help doing it. :)

    I would not make the brick in blue part because once the suit is assembled, it's almost impossible to get something great, moreover this will take too MUCH time ... By the way, free hand the web by using a pen is a great thing like said cha0tic.
    Personally, I don't use a dummy, hardest to work on, I'm working on flat surface, but you need to do as you prefer/want

    I thought about use a faceshell but I want to remove the mask easily, like peter do it in the comics, so I decided to try without it first.

    Hey guys, I'm making the front spider now, but before make it in rubber **** I made on E.V.A. to compare the size:

    so what do you guys think? the spider it is too big? I'm 6′4″ so it has to be a little bit bigger than the majority

    I was like you before, and then, I've discovered the faceshell, the face looks so much better with it ;)

    I know that now I have to draw the webs, but i have a doubt: What kind of pen can I use in lycra/spandex? Do you know? something i can wash after puff paint.

    I think you have sewn it too quickly.
    If I were you, I would have drown the web lines first, traced them from a picture or the computer screen with a ruler and a marker.
    I am wondering why would need a washable marker, because when you puff paint on top of the line, it will become invisible.
    But there are washable inks which are water based. http://www.stubbypencilstudio.com/product/LIQ_ECOLORGY8/Washable-Markers/
    I guess it is easier to correct mistakes.

    if you want to draw the bricks on the red part, do them first before you do the web lines.
    I would recommend you to use a metallic black marker or a silver marker (if you dont find metallic black) to do the blue bricks.so you do not need to puff paint them in the end.
    puff paint without guide lines is harder to control and you can not use a ruler as a means of help.

    At this stage you can use card board pieces inside your suit to make it flat and easy to work on (on a table).
