As you might guess from his moniker, Spidey Matt Cosplay is all about cosplaying Spider-Man. He dressed as the classic red and blue Spidey for Dragon Con and also put together a Wolverine meets Cyclops mash-up costume. It’s not the most simple of ensembles to get right — things can go wrong from the texture of the suit to the pattern to zipper placement, so Matt put together a post with some advice. He started with talking about the pattern:
1) The pattern
Find a good pattern online. Some Zentai shops will have their own patterns made in-house, but these are usually not super accurate to the comics or movies. Look around online for good patterns. Sellfy is a great website to start with. @crazyfranky and Web-HeadStudios make some awesome patterns. You can usually ask them to make one on commission as well.
