OMGS Superman! (Adam)

Sooo Excited!!

So first off, I don’t really make my own costumes for anything. Normally they look really sad and get thrown away after the event.  However, nothing says bitchin clothing like something you’ve made over the course of 8 months. However I don’t really have that time to do that, or the skills, or the drive. So for Comic-Con I decided to enlist the help of the internet to put together everything for me. Yeah thats right… the internet. Apparently through this magical piece of modern technology any costume piece auto-magically comes to me.

My first costume that I’m putting together, is all about this guy.

 

Superman

Superman !!!

Yeaaaaaah Superman! Hes been among my favorite super hero characters since I was very very little, and this would make me so happy to give homage to him at Comic-Con.

But lets take a step back here. While I really want to go as superman, I have a kryptonite of my own, TIGHTS. Fuck that noise. It takes someone who is REALLY dedicated to make that commitment at the gym and I just cant see myself doing it. Also, if possible, I want to get some additional wear out of what I buy for Comic-con. To solve this conundrum… enter Tom Welling.

Tom Welling

Oh Tom Welling, you didn’t think you would be playing Clark Kent for the last decade, but you did! This year marks the last season of Smallville, however I’ve actually only started watching it recent months, but I have REALLY enjoyed it. The show, despite nerd/internet rage, is actually decent and fun, in a campy kind of way. As long as Lana Lang isn’t around (she has a terrible storyline). But anyway thats not what this is about! This is about me wanting to not wear spandex!

So Mr. Welling plays Clark Kent on the verge of becoming Superman and recently he has finally donned the famous “S” Shield, (it only took them 10 years :P), in the form of a more modern leather jacket. I’ve decided to go with this incarnation. It’s sleek, its recognizable, its awesome and most importantly it makes me look like a godamn badass. So there. Also, I think leather jackets rock and I TOTALLY will wear this all the time in addition to Comic-Con. And as I’ve mentioned before, anything can be acquired through the internet. So here is the jacket that I’ve ordered.

Pretty bitchin right? Hopefully it will arrive as awesome as I want it to be. That is the only downside of the internet. While I am getting this custom made for me, I will have no idea what it looks like or how it really fits until it is at my door. I’ve already got the other parts needed (its really simple stuff), so I should be all set once this comes in. It is going to be amazing and I can’t wait!
