spidey tank 1

Put on Spider-Man’s iconic red and blue suit without slipping into spandex thanks to this new design from Her Universe. This is the latest look in the company’s Marvel line, and I have to say that I’m a fan of the hooded tank. The hood even looks like Spidey’s mask! This is a much better option than getting bitten by a radioactive spider.

Armored Spider-Man

Think you’ve seen every possible cosplay of Spider-Man’s outfit? Not so fast because Torontoironman is basing an armor build on Spidey as seen in the game Shattered Dimensions. He looks a little like a disco ball, but it’s one badass disco ball.

The costume is still a work in progress. From the cosplayer:

Armored Spider-Man work in progress. Just have to make the shoulders, arms and boots and add lenses to the helmet. Helmet will open up at the back and close in place with magnets. And this is my duct tape mannequin I made last night with my daddy’s help, THANKS DAD!!

We already brought you the news that actor Donald Glover will be getting a crack at Spider-Man by voicing Miles Morales in Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors. Now there’s a cosplayer who has absolutely nailed the real-world version of the character.

Nikolas A. Draper-Ivey is a 22-year-old comic book artist from Lansing, Michigan who first found out about Miles Morales’ Spider-Man when his friends said that they looked alike. Boy, they weren’t kidding.

Draper-Ivey hopes that this will encourage the powers that be to make a live-action Miles Morales Spider-Man movie. Sara Pichelli, who designed and co-created Miles Morales Spider-Man commented on one of his pictures saying, “You’re perfect,” so it looks like people are noticing.

captain spider-man 2

If you took Captain America and Spider-Man and squished them into one character, they’d combine to make an epic costume. Redditor Darayz worked Cap’s red, white, and blue into a Spidey suit, and it looks striking and weirdly natural. I’m a fan of Captain Spider-Man. He’s still working on the shield, and I hope it has webbed lines in addition to or instead of the usual circles.

hair art 1

Cutting hair and styling it into new looks is one thing, but Rob Ferrel, a.k.a. Rob the Original, takes the skill to a whole new level. He creates detailed portraits using hair and dye. He’s clipped everyone from Spider-Man to basketball players onto heads, and I can’t get over how intricate the designs are. Ferrel said the skill has been developing for eight years and started when kids brought requests for art to the barbershop with reference pics: “At first it was simple patterns and designs, but now if they bring me any image, I can replicate it in their hair.”

See more of Rob’s work after the break, including videos of him creating Steve Jobs and Walking Dead haircuts.

ff spidey 1

Why cosplay as a character when you have the option to cosplay an entire comic book cover? We’ve seen Luis Romero dress as Spidey from the cover of Secret Wars #8 before, and now he’s built the cover and costume from The Amazing Spider-Man #659. This is Future Foundation Spider-Man, and he even got a photo with the one and only Stan Lee while he was wearing the ensemble. Excelsior!

More photos of the costume after the break.

Superheroes often spend their days surrounded by people who need their help. While it’s a worthy cause, it’s going to wear them down. A photomanipulation series by Benoit Lapray showcases what heroes might do in their off hours. The collection of images features cosplayers dressed as Wonder Woman, Superman, Captain America, and Spider-Man out in the wild enjoying nature and peace and quiet. They’ve earned it.

See more of the series after the break.
