The Darkness Costume

The Darkness costume 1

When I think about costumes inspired by comic book characters, I think about brightly colored spandex and capes. The range is so much bigger though, and cosplayers make it all. Replica Props Forum (RPF) user jacksadventures made a replica of the Darkness. The primal force takes over human hosts – Jackie Estacado at the moment -and gives them incredible power. Jacksadventures started his Darkness build in February and finished it near the beginning of May. He made the character’s foam muscle suit from upholstery foam and then skinned it with 1/8 inch upholstery foam and latex. It’s attached to a $40 morph suit. He said:

I used barge contact cement for the adhesive, and I’m using a 1/8 upholstery foam to skin the bigger foam muscles. Then I will be covering all of it in liquid latex. Then adding the lights and painting and all that. I spent a lot of time trying to make it look like the comic and not goofy size wise.

The amount of time he poured into crafting each step of this costume is impressive. A few progress photos:
