How do superheros make their costumes?By Susan | Comments: 15 | April 24, 2015
This was a topic of discussion the other night. We were watching the new Daredevil TV show and I was complaining about the fact that regular clothes with a bit of fabric tied over his face does not a super hero costume make.
In the Spiderman movies not only does Peter Parker find time to teach himself how to sling around buildings he somehow also manages to figure out how to mold and make an entire latex/spandex suit…overnight.
At least in Superman (Dean Cain version) we knew that his S was on his baby blanket and that his mum helped sew him an outfit. So from a sewing knowledge/skills point of view that all works. Plus they made this natty montage too.
Thor comes from a planet where he is a ruler so I’m sure he has an entire armory contingent to make his leather and metal armour so he doesn’t need to make his own.
Bruce Banner/The Hulk seems to just wear his regular clothes but why do his pants increase when he changes but don’t shrink back down when he returns to being Bruce Banner?
Is Alfred the Butler really an amazing latex tailor in his spare time to create and maintain Batman’s outfits?
But all these others how do they do it? and if learning amazing technical sewing virtually overnight comes with being a superhero then is there a secret stash of fabric in the batcave?
