Today's costume may be over a year old, but that doesn't make it any less deserving of our attention and admiration.
This is the costume that thomdave wore to Comic-Con International in 2011. Thomdave has posted several more pics of this awesome Smallville-inspired costume in the League of Heroes Yuku.com Forum. Better still, he gives us a breakdown of how it was made!
Jacket and Pants:
Custom tailored by Abby Polakow using navy blue and gold leather
Constructed from gold leather and Wonderflex by Abby Polakow
Generic leather gloves with a custom navy blue blend of Neopaque by Jacquard paint
Legion Flight Ring:
Constructed from Wonderflex and painted with Rust-Oleum metallic gold
Tucker synthetic leather shoes with custom Neopaque navy blue and true gold Lumiere by Jacquard paint
3M Tekk XF4 safety eyewear with the frame painted Rust-Oleum metallic gold
Now that we have a blueprint, Booster-philes, I expect to see a legion of Boosters at future conventions. (Thanks to Chris for correcting my oversight of this amazing costume.)
