Hey all, I'm in some serious need of some help here. I'm creating a X-men Movieverse Toad costume for ComicCon next year, but I can't seem to find any decent pics of him to create his costume. I can kinda make out most of his costume in the movie, but I need some pics for some closeups of his vest and pants. If anyone can help me, I'm eternally greatful ^_^

...Or if anyone would know what his vest is made of perhaps?

This should help:
This is a page from Gordon Smith's website (he's the make-up designer from X-Men and X2). I think that's the extent of the Toad shots (most of the X-Men pics in his portfolio are Mystique and Nightcrawler) but at least you get a nice clear full body shot and a nice (well relatively speaking) close-up.

Hey thanks a bunch, Ive been trying to go over my movie... and so I got a few good shots of the back of his vest too... is it just me, or does his vest look like it's made out of chainmail... or some sort of metal mesh?

No, it does look like fine chainmail - I think you could easily cheat though and use a cloth mesh. It would be a lot lighter and you could grubby it up to get a rusty metal look.

I remembered the official site of Ray Park selling off his Toad Vest a few years back and think it was made of mesh cloth rather than chainmail.
