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.

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

"Look, I KNOW the running shoes with individual toes are weird, but I NEED them to be a parkour warrior! Geeze!"

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?

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"?

I was thinking about something like for a motorcycle. not sure what kind of material they are made of thou.
DanielHeard Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2013
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.

this is very well done. had spidey been created in the 2000's a design like this would have been fantastic.
