Secret Wars/Symbiote Spider-Man
I've been a big fan of the Secret Wars maxi-series and toy line since I was a kid. I really loved the black suit Spider-Man, and this is a costume I've always wanted. A lot of the zentai suits just didn't look right and so many of the dye sub patterns seemed a little off.
I found this pattern from Supergeek Designs, and fell in love with it. He offers 4 variations, one with blue highlights, one with purple, this one and one with red instead of white.
I like the texture, its not too over the top.
The suit was printed and sewn by the infamous zentai-zentai. They did a fantastic job. The secret is to ask for the nice printer, line up everything and ask for the better fabric. I've ordered many suits from them and they haven't let me down yet. This is by far the best quality suit I have received from them.
I made the lenses and web shooters (not shown). I will wear modified TASM2 shooters because Peter did wear a black non-symbiote costume a few times in the series, and the web shooters are a cool detail and I have fun making them in different colors.
One thing I need to do is take the mask in to a seamstress and alter it. Even with the face shell, it is a bit too big. Bringing it in will make the lenses look better as they will be in the correct position. Other than that, things are good to go.
