Based on a folkloric character from Puerto Rico, often seen in Puerto Rican parades, this rendition of El Vejigante appeared in Marvel's one-shot "FANTASTIC FOUR IN...ATAQUE DEL M.O.D.O.K.". I love the costume design by comic book artist Juan Doe as it showcases Puerto Rico's flag.
Being a Christmas gift for my pal, Paul, of Puerto Rican descent, I wanted to customize a Puerto Rican patriotic superhero for him. This was the most visually stunning one I could find.
Body - Green Lantern Medphyll with Red Lantern Skallox feet
Head - Redakai Gold Bruticon head with fodder pieces for horns. Sculpted over most of the head.
Cape - After 2 unsuccessful attempts of having paint flake off from 2 different capes, I went with creating a satin cape. The first satin cape turned out terrible so I had to draw out the schematics on paper then transfer them unto the satin fabric. I added thin metal wires near the edges for articulation. Added blue polyester ribbon near the bottom of the cape. First time creating a cape from scratch, but I'm happy with the results.
Thanks for looking, Realmers!
I hope you all like him.
