This was a great challenge!! I actually cut and sewn the material into place. The boots were a nightmare!! It's all done!!
That 9" Mister Sinister body is perfect size to make a custom mego Colossus!
My daughter hasn't seen it yet. This is a surprise waiting for her tonight!
The material is vinyl and paint specially made for vinyls. I used the Mister Sinister body's outfit as a base and cut and sewn fabric pieces together and using fabric glue instead of thread and bonding it to the vinyl.
By using fabric paint, there is some sort of rubber silicone in the paint so it allows the material to stretch and bend. So he is very movable and looks a lot better then this picture makes it out to be.
The trick was cutting a diamond out of red material and getting it even and bringing it down on both sides and sewing it to the vinyl shorts. Then I used the belt that came with Mister Sinister and repainted it.
