    Hello everyone !
    Let me introduce myself first : I'm 25 yo and I live in France.
    I'm planning to make the amazing spiderman suit before next February :)

    I have some canva and materials but what I need for now is to make the mask. The problem is that I'm not very skilled in sewing and I'd like to get a pattern that show precisely how I have to cut canva to fit my head.

    I tried 2 patterns but they didn't work at all :(

    I'm not using spandex for the head. I use urethane material to match the "wetsuit" look of the red parts ;)
    I'll putt the same material on the blue suit to get it as accurate as I can.

    Do anyone can help me with a good pattern, please ?
    Thanks in advance !

    Steve

    Well, I was busy a moment but I finally got pieces I need to make the lenses.
    The right one is done, I'll build the left one tonight after work XD

    I realized that I can't make exactly the same suit because of some details on the netting.
    So, I'm trying to get it the more accurate I can, but keeping in mind that Peter Parker is a student without a lot of money. So, if I don't have skills for some part, I'll do it with material I can find and I know how to use.

    For example, the black part around the lenses. I make it with Stormtrooper Neck Trim :p

    I think the first pics will come tonight or tomorrow.

    Can't wait to know what you think about what I'm doing ;)

    Here's what I've done so far :

    I've got to wait before making the other lense because I didn't succeed in making the second with the same dimensions and I don't have another "ball" yet ^^"

    What exactly is that mesh material you used?

    This is an sheet of window aerator mesh. In alluminium I guess.
    I found it in a work shop :)
    I painted it with a gold color.

    Thank you ! :)
    Your idea is pretty cool too

    Well here's a little update : The basis of the bust is complete (minus web details and spider) ! Just a few adjustments to do to make it fit me good when the suit is complete :D

    Hello there !
    Well, seeing this thread http://www.therpf.com/f24/mcl34ns-wip-amazing-spidey-costume-updated-6-a-140975/ make me want to continue my own suit.

    Just remember that I'm totally new at this kind of project, more used to build SW armors :p

    So, I rebuild 3 times the lenses to go to this :
    [​IMG]
    On the left : the final product. On the right : a previous colored version too light.

    Then, I made 4 tries of the head to finally go to :
    [​IMG]

    As we can see some blue shadows on ref pics I used a spray of canva paint and then drawn the webbing and test with the new lenses (before I paint them) :
    [​IMG]

    I used tulip 3D puff paint to do the final webbing :
    [​IMG]
    You can notice that it's not regular. Well, my hands can't do it :( but when it dries, it looks better. You can also see an angle in the middle. Well, this is because the head I use to display the hood is not my size. But when I put it on my own head, the web fits me right :D

    I'm trying to do the honeycomb texture. I hope I can do some pics with it on my head by the week end :)

    Cheers !

    Probably the best thing to do is lay in the 3D webbing and Honeycomb on the lycra or spandex material while its flat, not already sewn together. Something to keep in mind for the rest of the suit. It will make your life easier. Good start though!

    Thanks !
    Yep, for the next parts I'll do the webbing and honeycombs before sewing ^^"
    It's a little bit difficult to do it on a sewn hood ;)
    But, I already "level up" in costuming XD

    So the reds and blues in the suit will be sewn together and not a one piece print?

    Exactly.
    As we can see on the ref pics, they are sewn so I'll do the same :)

    Well, I finished the first version of the hood this week end.
    I'm proud as it's my very first mask. But the webbing is not perfect and not symetrical. The same for the lenses : one is very good, the other doesn't fit my face well.

    So I'm planning to focus on the suit and rebuild the hood later :)

    Here're some pics

    looks really great. how'd you get the "weathered / dirty" effect? i think that makes it work really well.

    It turned out pretty good without the honey-comb texture!

    I simply used a blue spray paint for canva. The same I'll use to underline the muscles on the suit.

    @Merles, thank you ! :)

    Just saw the movie yesterday and noticed a lot of details on the suit :D
    And, in a scene on the top of the building, it is really the asics we all bought as we can see Peter wearing them before he use them in the suit ^^

    I began to work with my girlfriend on the boots.
    As you know, I want to be able to remove them so I do not print them on the suit but make them on the asics :

    The color scheme allows us to know where to cut, sew and how much the sock's canva must be outstretched when we draw the pattern on the final material.

    And, here's a pic of the web shooters I ordered from carl9149 :

    I cut the first shoe's templates yesterday and will sew them together by the week end.
    I also assemble the web shooters.

    And !! I have to say that my girlfriend has wonderful ideas : as you can see on the shooters' pic, they are the display ones. So 2 threads go out the cartridge and I had to remove them to assemble the shooters. She said : "keep the threads, and, when the shooters will be finished and fully painted, put the threads on the front to simulate that your shooting some web and make your costume more alive"
    This is gonna be really great, don't you think ? :)

    Well if you don't know what she meant, I'll take a picture to illustrate it ;)
