This was the first time I made a superhero costume and I didn’t have a clue how to make it. My first choice for the fabric was spandex but the commissioner requested a non-spandex costume, so, I had to find a different type of fabric. I didn’t know what would work well for a superhero costume. At the end I bought a fabric with 3% of lycra to have a moderate stretch.
The cowl/mask was the one thing that was a pain in the neck to make. I had to made it two times. But at the end it was a lot of fun to make and the best thing is to know that the boy was happy with the costume.
