Spider-Man Webhead 2.0 by DanielHeard Spider-Man Webhead 2.0 by DanielHeard
My Spider-Man redesign for the Project: Rooftop redesign contest.
I chose to make mine a continuation of sorts of last years Spidey redesign. [link]
That costume was based on what a 16 year old could cobble together with a budget of 500 bucks and a hobby bench. But this Peter Parker is the 26 year old Avenger, Future Foundation science adventurer with a decent job. He's been slinging webs in the 5 boroughs for a decade, and sewing his own costume the entire time. He's gotten really good at both, and this costume reflects that.
I wanted this to be first functional, then realistically constructed. So the man gets zippers, where he can reach them, that way he can get in and out of his costume without the aid of magic tech or assistant costumers. Navy blue is durable but elastic trampoline textile. The red patches are light "armor": nylon twill that cover squares of Impact foam, the kind used for bike helmets and ski suits, designed to absorb blunt trauma.
Spiderman, doesn't need bulletproofing, he dodges bullets, so the padding could in no way hinder his mobility. So no padding around the joints and bend points of the abdomen. It would be hard to tuck into those classic Spidey poses with padding in the way.
The helmet is stainless steel, lined with impact foam as well. The two extra eyes are the lenses of light intensifier tubes used to give his goggles night vision.
He has 4 zip pockets. The two on his thighs are under the impact foam and carry his smartphone and a leatherman all in one tool kit. The wrist pockets carry his web-fluid refill cartridges. The shooters themselves were designed to look a little more raygun tech. The "barrel" spins when in action.
The Shoes are styled after the Fila Skeletoes, [link] , designed supposedly for parkour runners to have a greater barefoot gait and thus more agile. Worn almost exclusively by science dorks like Peter.

The only issue I have with this design is the feet. They shouldn't have the armor or padding on them. It should just be simple red or black socks so that his feet would have no trouble clinging to walls.

I like it overall, but some parts stick out to me a lot. I assume the top must detach in some way so he can actually pull the zipper down. if so, couldn't we do an oval abdomen like section on his stomach region, I appreciate the use of negative space there but it just seems like it leaves something to be desired. Also, why nothing on the lower legs? Again, that's my sense of aesthetic.

Love the light intensifier idea especially since it visually makes the helmet more spider like. Very tight design overall :3.

In "Amazing Spider-man #30" he is thinking about adding pockets to his costume, but decides it's a stupid idea since the zippers could possibly alert person he is sneaking on : )

As a word from me: overal idea is prety well though, I just don't buy the stainless steel helmet. I mean he has to be fast and agile, you said that, why not a regular helmet?

DanielHeard Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2013
Thats great, thanks for the bit of trivia. Though for the life of me I cant imagine why he would unzip a pocket whilst sneaking up on someone.
And I will answer your question with another: what's a "regular helmet"?

mostly plastic designed to break in order to distribute kinetic energy. I choose stainless steel because he could pound out any Rhino Fist dents that occur.

ooh a follow-up, how quaint !
yeah really digging this design.. but the light should be a bit more intesified near the abdomen.. something like what the iron man has,albeit seperated to give place for his maneuvers..this will lead to a smaller spider symbol and less visibility of the zipper . butplease loose the 'foot' ..its ,if nothing else, its very disturbing ... a boot is perfectly fine.

another question -- how does he carry it around? previously he jus kept his mask in his backpack and wore the costume under his civilian clothing , but with the advent of padding ...the costume would become much to obvious..

This...is...one...of the COOLEST redesigns I've ever seen! You mixed functionality, wonderful aesthetics (the negative space makin' up the spider was inspired), and characterization very, very well.

Great job all around!

I must say that redesign wise, you're the closest to my sensibilities. You give the costumes functionality while taking in consideration the character's powers and abilities. It's pretty much what i call object oriented design which is much more to do with seeing the costume as a tool to improve abilities or make up for the lack of some. I like more fashion related suits as well, but they should be given to characters whose powers care not for physical prowess nor skill.

Exactly. Invincible or Superman can wear tights, because their bloody invulnerable. Really only then does it makes sense.
My main rule is form follow function, and it's a great joy when I can shoehorn the classic design into functionality. My best example being Vampirella's zipper pull [link]
And thanks again.
