It's not sold in any store. I made it myself. Do I pass?

My bad.. I should have worded it better.. What happened was, I bought a standard Superman costume, paying the additional five bucks for the enhanced muscle chest. Then I painted all the appropriate areas in rich silver, and added black and titanum white plus a little metallic white to it, so it would look more Cyborg-ish than Man of Steel-ish. I couldn't find a comics scene with the Man of Tomorrow's back without the cape, so that was up to my imagination. Half of the red "S" was filled in with a black permanent marker. The cape and belt I left as they are.

The red superhero boots I ordered with the costume, painted much like the rest, and covered the red zipper with silver duct tape.

The mask came with a do-it-yourself cyborg skull mask kit. I covered it with the silver make up, then added red and black later. Then I cut it to show part of my face. The liquid latex adhesive I didn't have the patience for, so I used scotch tape instead.

And, I used a medium latex glove from Publix, panting it just like the rest.

Unfortunately, I live in South Florida, so both costume contests I planned to go to were cancelled due to the hurricane. :(

Ah, well... I still think it rocks! Not bad paint work to be sure. ;)

That is an amazing costume. Great work man! I've only done one modified DC based costume myself and that way years ago as I was Catwoman! Here's an old pic of that by-gone costume:


It's nice to see someone so into Superman (other than your screen name here being a major-tip off) as I try to keep up on what he's doing, but I normally stick to the Batman/Catwoman side of things...

You'd win our costume contest if we had one! :thumbup:
