How It's Made

Today's costume may be over a year old, but that doesn't make it any less deserving of our attention and admiration.

thomdave as Booster Gold

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

Bracers:
Constructed from gold leather and Wonderflex by Abby Polakow

Gloves:
Generic leather gloves with a custom navy blue blend of Neopaque by Jacquard paint

Legion Flight Ring:
DC Direct

Wrist Blasters:
Constructed from Wonderflex and painted with Rust-Oleum metallic gold

Shoes:
Tucker synthetic leather shoes with custom Neopaque navy blue and true gold Lumiere by Jacquard paint

Glasses:
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.)
