I really struggle with the 2012 film costume design for Spider-Man. I mean, many edges are contoured, then some are not; web starts then stops. The silver slippers. The yellow lenses. The strange cuts to the midsection. And all the texture, and ribbing, and ribbing on texture.
That said, I was still pleased they changed it up over the traditional look, and to be fair, designing the Spidey costume to look like it was made in 2012 is going to lend itself to some greater complexity and zoominess than the traditional look. I just thought the design needed some cohesiveness. Despite that, I didn’t do a redesign this week. Just a straight-forward homage… and oddly enough, in the sequel, when they returned to the traditional comic style, I missed this one!
