Aquaman Costume! (Update -1/05/13)

We took a small break but we are back to work. I was contacted by a friend and an Aquaman costume was purposed to me. Not being an Aquaman Fan I was hesitant “Bah!!!! No one likes AquaMan, I Said”.

Turns out I was wrong and there is little to NO good costumes out there for the King of the Sea! So we started to design the piece, this was no easy task as AquaMan has had a few costumes and none of them were very impressive! We did find that there are some impressive parts to the Aquaman Costume throughout the years however. So we did a little research and chose our favorite parts and put them together  for what we hope will be an excellent AquaMan costume.

Here is our original design

Now to explain myself. This is the front of the costume, We will be designing the back as well. First off we Like the scaled shirt of “Classic and current AquaMan and wanted to keep that, We also wanted to bring the Scales down into the legs but not to much, we don’t want him looking like a Merman. You will notice the Left arm is not scaled, we wanted it to have Armor on that arm as I think we will also do a gauntlet on this same arm. We added a tribal type Shark to the Left armor just to give it that royal Atlantis feel. The Scales will run down the Right arm as we like the idea of the skin being covered. You will also notice we went this an armor rather than an organic look. I’m a huge fan of the New 52 and like the look of the armor, I feel it brings a little more mortality to the situation. Even If I could talk to sharks i would not do in in my PJ’s. I also Kept the Brief look, I’m not sure why, I guess it’s the super friends fan in me. I’m also keeping the classic colors Orange, Green and Gold.

Here is the design all colored up, keep in mind that the “real” costume will be darker but this is just to give you an Idea.

We will also be adding a custom made belt to the suit and boots. So stay tuned and check back often Super Friends, the back is next.

Thanks

Ok Guys and Gals we have a quick update on the Aquaman Costume. There is not alot to say about the costume thus far as this is only the back design we kept it pretty simple and continued with the design from the front of the costume. Same color scheme and armored left arm.

Here is the Black & White Design

and the color!

Thanks to you all for following along. Hopefully this will not disappoint.

(12/18/12) Update time Ladies and Gentleman,

I got a great first pull out of the molds for the Aquaman Armor, we stuck to our guns on our color scheme and are very pleased with the way it turned out. Her are a couple pic of it just kinda draped over our Duct tape dummy.

I was not able to properly mount this because the back is still wet and in the mold. Im hoping to be able to pull and paint the back tonight so that I can finish construction this week, Thursday perhaps (or at least before the world ends) . I still have to do the belt and gauntlets. I am pretty sure I am going to go Gloveless and just use regular green boots, all “vintage” style. Hope everyone is liking where this is going so far.

 

Thanks for checking in, Aquaman is getting cooler by the second!

Ok this suit is moving right along and should be complete this week. We have Nearly finished the suit with final touches being the only part remaining. We have attached both sections of the suit to the under suit, the arms gave us a little problem but nothing a little seam work didn’t handle. After 3  years of making suits this way I finally feel like we are starting to really get this under control, this was a 2 part suit a front and a back, with a couple more minor changes the seam will fit perfect.

Anyway back to this suit . Really all we have to do to finish the suit is some touch up painting, a little more seaming, and finish up the gauntlets. Thats it really. We also have to decide what we are going to do about the boots, but we are leaning towards green boots.

we are hoping to finish up the suit this week and get it photographed. I wil post pics as soon as we get them. As always, thanks for following along with our blog.

We finally got the Aquaman costume done, WOOOOOOOOOWHOOOOO! We finished off everything and added gauntlets. Up next we will be making one to send to Superhero Photography by Adam Jay to be photographed at 12 Apostles in Melbourne Australia. We will be altering the costume slightly for the photo shoot as the model will need maxim mobility. We are considering removing the upper portion of the arms and the lower portion of the legs. We will still be sending the gauntlets.

 

Please check out all the pics in our Completed Costume Page

Thanks again for following along check back in for the Australia Photo shoot Pictures.

  1. As an Aquaman fan; thank you. This is just awesome. :)

      Thank You so Much for the Awesome Comment. I knew a true fan would like this suit, its the people that dislike Aquaman that I am gettine a surprising responce from.

  2. Wonder if a half shoulder cape would look cool with this, for his formal wear? Just an idea.

  3. Artakis says:

    The suit is indeed reall good! Also, The belt still as a Batman feel. Maybe, you should design it more in the gold arm style you did (wich is awesome by the way).

    This costume finished, you should ask Bradley James wear it. It would be an awesome aquaman. It’s not like being called Arthur or King would be new to him.

      Thanks for the positive feedback and comments.
      I wanted to stick with the batman belt to give the suit a real world functional feel.

    Just out of curiosity, are there any plans on making a trident to go with the outfit, and did you already/ are you going to make boots to go with it?

    • Jeremey says:

      Yes we made a Trident to go with this suit,there was also one made for the photoshoot! As for boots we just painted a pair of hero boots we got off eBay and used the boot spats to cover them!
      Thanks
