On Quick FX this week, Knoptop shares some tips on creating a superhero on the cheap. It's no secret, but using your local thrift store as a costuming resource can be huge. I've worked with several costumers who take the cast to one of these stores and find great stuff to make the characters look right. I also like Dave's tip about the crafting foam-into-logo trick. I've never seen that one before. It's a great idea.
Oh, and if I ever saw Snot Rocket Boy coming my way, I'd run in the other direction. He has to be one of the grossest superheroes ever. I'm glad he's on the side of good.
