This brings me onto another patriot character of mine that I'm having trouble loving, Albion Hawk DP/MC Blaster. I like the name, I like the AT, but i'm just struggling with the costume. For me, the costume makes the character, it gives it a personality. Without it, or with a wrong costume the character just will not work for me and i'll lose interest.

 

So Albion Hawk is a remake of one of my main Live characters, British Hero, a Rad/DP Speedster Defender, but the costume has just never worked for me:

I've had a couple of attempts to redesign him and find the right genre for him, the first being my old Bristish Hero retro 50's costume, next a steampunk inspired costume, and then a pulp 30's type of look, but none of them gelled.

I'm now playing with this 70's golden age era look, we'll see how it feels...

Let me know what you think, cheers guys 🙂

 

Damn how did you make that head of that 70s golden age era look?

Here's Mega Fist.  She's very (all the way) tall, but I forgot to add anything to show scale nearby.

Damn, I have gone through this whole thread (returning player) and you have some of the best characters I've seen. Bravo!

Ok, I think this is as close as it'll get. I've never struggled with such a simple costume before, but I just could not get that golden age feel right. It's still not perfect, needs shorts rather than briefs and long sleeves, but hey ho, it's not possible. I'm going to play him a bit and see how he feels 🙂

 

@Professor Sad his helmet is as follows:

 

Head - half helmet

Face - any - devious

Helmet - freedom corps

Detail 1 - retro goggles

Detail 2 - Ventilator

Helmet Detail 1 - Celestial Wings

Helmet Detail 2 - Finned

 

 

 

Cheers for looking all 🙂

My latest couple of 50s:

 

Violett, Fortunata specialising in undercover work, until a stint with the Carnival set her on her own path.

Debug, beam/devices blaster specialising in shooting all the things.

Back in the day I used to have a couple characters that made full use of the multiple costumes. Monster Child was a teen and a giant demon and a time-displaced half-man/half-demon combo. Polly Morph was a shapeshifter. I wanted to do that again, but different. So here is Every-Were, the ultimate animal changeling.

 

The pic is really big, so just the thumbnail here. Click to see the larger version, then click the down arrow to go to full size.

I wanted to use the glowing Yakuza tattoos as the transformation method, but I didn't realize it was only on the female side. Which is no biggie, but I was driving myself nuts trying to find it in the male side. After that, finding a top/belt combo that covered the human skin when she transforms into various creatures was a challenge, but it mostly works. I can't explain the pants. I guess they're magic pants.

By the way, I saw a guy tonight on Everlasting who has made the costume you're circling. Maybe it'll help spark an idea.

I can't say I've ever been particularly drawn to the animal headed option and I've certainly seen lion-headed angels before so its not an original concept. Still, I thought I'd have a go at it and see what I could come up with.

Since you are allowed to recreate movie characters,I made the Kurgan from Highlander.

(Deleted pic)

Edited by Palehood
I deleted pic cause pic doesn't count as a "best" design.

That sort of thing's always bugged me too.

Sure, rub in the fact that there are no Hammer Pants😢

 

There could have been:

Admittedly it would have been a somewhat different style consideration. 😁

Finally! 163 pages is a lot to look through! But I can finally post a few pics. Some original, some inspired by a few of the really great costumes you all have shown us.

 

First up is Rail Baron. He's inspired by the Living Locomotive I saw 30 or 40 pages ago. (Sorry, I forget whose design that was.)

 

Rail Baron is a Victorian era villain who finds himself in the modern world. He's a train themed power armor guy and inventor. Invulnerability/Dark Melee Tanker.

I love that he has a cow-catcher on his face. 😂 Perfect!
