OOh I forgot about the Ghostbusters. Those are awesome Ghostbuster suits. I was especially thrilled with the Ernie Hudson pic, he is a really cool [sign in to see URL] of my favorite actors.

Re: A few of my costumes


Thanks Deadcities and Escapist,

  I just had GL put together for me this year and I was so lucky to have found those contacts. That was the main thing everyone was saying "he even has the eyes!" It seems like it would have been a waste if I didn't have those contacts. Mark Hamill stopped me in the street and payed me a compliment

  :rollin

It was really cool meeting Ernie Hudson too. Dressed as Winston and then meeting the real Winston was a real rush.

  Al

How did I miss this thread?! :embarassed :geez

Great costumes Al. My faves are Blade & Green Lantern. Really nice job on them both. I too love the green eyes on Lantern as [sign in to see URL] touch, Just like the JLA one on CN :wink

Al, I'd seen pics of Blade and GL online before and was real impressed with both. You're GL is the best I've seen. The eyes add so much to the costume.

 :up

So could you tell us a bit about the suit's creation? Is it sewn out of leather and if so is the seam up the back or across the shoulder like Spiderman? What did you use for the gloves? And where did those awesome green boots come from?

We are a friendly lot but inquisitive.




 :cheers

Incredible GL and Blade! I remember seeing you walking around SDCC and thinking, "that is the best GL I've ever seen! All the way down to the eyes!" Great touch. And the Blade is too cool... and let's not forget the Ghostbusters! Awesome job on all of the them! Welcome to the cave!

Re: A few of my costumes


Lori, Chris, Brin, darknight89, thank you for all of the compliments on my costumes, I really do appreciate it.

  As for GL's design, I used the same leather shop that created my Blade costume the previous year. It is sewn leather and the zipper goes right up the middle of my back. The gloves were just some simple female theatrical styled gloves that I found at the last minute. The ring was actually made by a good friend of mine. The contacts were the UV reactive kind so they showed up really well with the flash of a camera :pics . And last but not least, my boots were made by [sign in to see URL] And again, this is a great cave :applaude
