Full Time Superhero.
Currently living in Doncaster, UK.
'You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.'
Triathlon, Cycling, and swimming.
Comics and all things geeky - collecting the models/toys.
Especially into Superman & Spider-man,
but love nearly all in the comic book genre.
Rather partial to Star Wars/ Trek too, but wearing Stormtrooper armour isn't quite as comfortable as spandex - though I do have the armour.
Re: Superheroes and costumes:
I have loved making costumes since I was a small kid, mainly as I always wanted a Spider-man suit and you couldn't get them in those days as easily today
(no ebay), so I taught myself to sew and improved with time. In the main I make all my costumes, but have bought bits here and there too. The importance of
good accessories and an accurate looking quality costume takes precidence - I'm not proud ;-) That said, I am partial to
adding my own touch of 'design' to a costume, either due to practicality or if I think it'll look better in my mind. Some suits just dont look like
they would work in the 'real world' like they do in the comic.
Also into Japanese Water Gardening
and Bonsai, Motorcycles, hiking.
