    Heres a quick summary of the progress so far.

    project start date NOV 9 2011

    today my son and i went to the lair to pick our reserved copy of ultimate comics spiderman. premiering miles morales. the controversial new spidey whos half black and half spanish.

    ive been talking about this project with him for months. i even tried to join forums to find a cheap easy solution to turning my son into miles morales.

    but it was to no avail. the guys there r really talented. and i respect there work. but to try and get the secrets to makin the perfect suit from them was kinda hard. i spent alot of time on the forum learning and looking. and it has sparked my creative juices.

    so as im looking for ref pics of the suit. i came up with the idea of doing the webbing, elbows, knees and eyes. but i can only really start the knees , elbows and maybe the chest spider.


    NOV 10th....
    today i received 5 sheets of 1mm foam sheets that i plan to use somehow on the miles morales build.

    i have already drawn the shapes for the knee and elbow pads but only started on one of the elbows.

    ok so the cutting didnt go as well as planed. while cutting with the scissors i learned to be careful with the cutting edge of the scissors. if you cut at an angle you will get an angled cut. i guess its a science that ill have to master in time.

    all in all im happy with the end result of the elbow. now to sew it into some type of leathery material.....

    STAY TUNED! TRUE BELIEVERS!

    went out today and picked up the cushion fabric to wrap the 1mm elbow and knee pieces i have cut out, as well as the fabric thats gonna hold them into place and form the pads.

    sorry for my delay in posting... been kinda busy.

    heres some progress...

    ive sewn the cushion to the 1mm foam pieces. mind you... i have never sewn a day in my life. so i guess thats not bad.... right? lol

    the markings on the pad pieces are for ref to the right elbow. they will be taken off later.

    well thats it for now.. now time to learn how to sew with my moms old trusty machine. ttys.....

    @scotty.. im goin to use blue and red 4way stretch spandex. and as far as the webbing... i might do silk screen with a light puff. or i can always airbrush it. i really dont want to send it out. when i do the black and red version. imma consider sending the black to get the octagon pattern printed so i can do the red webbing by hand. now with the chest spiders, im going to cast them out of somethin jus dont know what yet. ill figure it out when i get there. lol

    k ive been sick like a dog for the past few days, but somehow mustered up the strength to start our web work for the build. i plan on silk screening if not airbrushing the webbing. another idea i would like to toy with is maybe the webbing will look cool pipped into the suit. idk. guess well just have to stick around and see.

    ttyl webb heads!

    SORRY FOR THE DELAYS IN POST GUYS!!! its hard being a single dad. and caretaker to 3 disabled adults. but hey its what i gotta do. n e how....

    heres some of the latest. i finally learned how to use cs5 illustrator and im quite impressed with myself. cant wait till my son wakes up and sees this. i still have to warp the center neck lines so that when i sew the halves together
    it comes out uniform to the outer neck webs.

    ill be back soon jus stay tuned....

    well.... in these pics. we are using a spidey face shell play mask from wallmart that we picked up for 5 dollars. i think its by marvel. it has everything we need to fabricate our own version of the shell. i looked around and brads was pretty good. but i needed somethin more. im plannin on removing the webbing and eye frames that are jus glued on to the front. extending the area above head and stretch the chin down a bit. so i could look like some what of a helmet. and replacing the frames with some frames i drew up in illustrator. gotta run. feel free to ask away... if ud like ill try to get back to ya quick. be safe and see ya soon.

    ok i havent added much descriptions lately, but heres where were at.. i made a pattern of his head and body and thanks to my good old singer and a few sewing videos on youtube here it is. still raw i will be making a screen using a 156 mesh since i will be using a puff additive to my black lines. and you really cant see the red spandex that will be under the jersey type fabric. and we cant forget the piping that has to be sewed into the edges of the red printed chest, and legs...wait till i tell you how i plan to do the spider.... your gonna love it. feel free to ask any questions and ill try to get back to you soon. o and i kinda fixed the pads in place more or less just as a mock up ok thats not how they are gonna stay...
