This is, without question, the BEST fan-made Superman costume I've EVER seen! This is, of course, based on Christopher Reeve's costume from the movies. I've seen a LOT of Superman costumes and more often than not there's usually something not quite right about them, either the trunks are too big, the boots are too short, or the guy wearing it just doesn't live up to Superman's physique. But I've never seen a costume more impressive and accurate as this one. Everything about it is absolutely perfect and the bloke wearing it actually makes a pretty darn good Superman. I would give the man credit but I have no idea who he is, only that he calls himself Martin-El and is located in Birmingham, England. I found these shots on a really cool site called The League of Heroes, which is comprised of fans who are really into super hero and movie character costuming. Check it out when you get time, it's pretty neat. Great job on the costume, Martin! Up, up and AWAAAAAAY!!!!!!

Ken Epperly, one of the co-owners of Magic Makers Costumes in Huntington, was in a quandry as to what to do with an old 1975 Cadillac that had been in his possession for quite a number of years. Well, this was his solution: covering it in jaguar/leopard fur!!! He said he'd always wanted a Jaguar. Now he has one!
