Do you like leather jackets? Do you want to dress like actor Eric Martsolf from Smallville? Do you have $178? If you answered yes to all three of those questions, Sky-Seller.com might be the site for you!
Or maybe you'd prefer to save $3 and order from LeatherJackets.com:
Hmm. That image looks awfully familiar. Where have I seen that before? Oh, yes, I remember now:
Sky-Seller.com is registered to a private company in Panama. LeatherJackets.com is registered to an apparel company in San Francisco (B.L.K. International) which claims to have been in business for 20 years. If you look closely, you'll see that the LeatherJackets image is a poorly retouched version of the Sky-Seller image (you can clearly see the use of the clone tool to cover where the "Sky-Seller.com" watermark has been removed).
So Sky-Seller "borrowed" and retouched the image from thomdave's original forum post, and LeatherJackets "borrowed" that image and retouched it. Neither of them appear to have anything to do with Polakow, who has her own craft store on etsy.com.
The moral of today's post, boys and girls, is before you trust someone with your $175, you might want to do a bit of homework. Anyone who takes credit for someone else's work might not be the most trustworthy vendor.

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.)
