Superman, anyone?

Considering the new Superman movie comes out in about 2 weeks, I was wondering if anyone is doing any Superman related Cosplay this summer?

For the past three years I've done Superman themed costumes: Last year, I was "Krypto the Superdog", the year before I was "Sailor Super Mask" (Aka: What if Superman existed in the Sailor Moon Universe?), and the year prior to that I went as "Goth Superman".

Shockingly, though I have an extreme love for the character, this year I'm not doing anything Superman related. Instead, I'm going with the original Superman Knock-off, Captain Marvel.

So, since I'm not doing Superman myself, I'm hoping that others are doing him, or characters related to Superman.

Anyone?

Oy, supes would be an expensive venture (assuming you are doing the Movie version). The fabric used on his cape was imported from France.. it's like $90/yard! Eek!

Yikes! Well, no one would really have to use that fabric. Plus, I don't mean just "movie" Supes, but any version, variant, of Superman, or even his supporting cast from the comics/cartoons, etc.

I cosplayed as Supergirl and my boyfriend as Superboy Prime (from Infinite Crisis) this year. We met the two creators of Infinite Crisis, Geoff Johns and Phil Jimenez too, and we all got along really well.

It's all done but i need to add the cape to the shirt, other than that i'ts pretty acurate too, ^_^. While at the movie opening i saw a few supermen runnin' around. But on a whole there weren't many cosplayers, -sigh-

There weren't any Superman cosplayers around for the opening of the movie here, not that I saw anyway (Apparently some theater had a huge Superman party, and cosplayers were there, but I didn't know about it until like 2 days later! ARGH!!). I, however, went in my Clark Kent outfit ... which was basically khakis, dress shirt open to reveal a Superman t-shirt, and the "S" curl in my hair.

I've seen the pictures of you guys. Fantastic job! You guys going to be at Otakon or Dragon*Con by any chance? I'd love to get my own pics of you two. Really good take on the Superboy Prime costume!

Well you don't need a fabric imported from France... They used Milliskin for the movie costume (custom printed for the diamond pattern, but...) you can buy Milliskin from spandexhouse.com
And the "S" shield was made by casting latex into a mold and laser cutted (and engraved with hundreds of tiny "S")

Awesome Superman cosplay Tsuyosa, where'd you find the boots? I want a pair of those just to wear around town, haha.

I'm hopefully going to have a Lex next year for Dragon Con and I'm planning to do at least one, if not two of Kitty's outfits. Right now I'm thinking the one that sort of resembles a riding outfit that she has on while Lex reads the Superman Returns issue of the Daily Planet, and the other being the outfit from the car wreck scene.
