That's a Super Suit

This is different. Am I now a fashion designer, or have I just insulted the world of fashion design with my flippancy? The answer of course is neither, please read on...

 A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be in the fairly unique position of creating the pattern for a super hero themed suit. This was for a company "Stag Suits" that makes fun outfits for, as you may have guessed, stag nights (or any occasion really). The pattern is made up of comic-book style super heroes all flying around doing their thing, complete with sound effects. My instruction was to make the characters look like they could come from the comic world without actually just drawing superman or spider-man for rights issues, however this made the project into much more of a creative process for me.

I think I would need a few drinks inside me already before going out wearing it, but it was a great project to work on.
