Greetings, Vocal readers. This article is for all the Spider-Man fans out there. On this day a year ago, the most amazing thing happened to me that it almost didn’t become a reality. I’m talking about one of my cosplays: Captain Spidey. On November 21, 2018, I got my very first Spider-Man suit from Zentaizone, which sells different kinds of suits, including Spider-Man suits. It took me a while to customize my suit and choose my measurements, such as the size of my waist, feet, and arms. Luckily, I got the hang of it and ordered it. I had to wait a few weeks for my suit to arrive. On the day it was supposed to arrive to me, there was a problem. It was sent to my old address as opposed to my new address. So I had to go to the leasing office of my old apartment complex and pick up my package. I opened my package and when I tell you, my eyes lit up. I couldn’t believe that I now owned a Spider-Man suit. I posted pics of it on my social media pages and did a live stream, receiving positive feedback.

So what do I think about my Captain Spidey suit a year later? So far, I’ve gotten a lot more attached to it than when it first arrived to me. Since then, I’ve debuted it at three cons, a Free Comic Book Day event, and a pride parade. Speaking of the pride parade, I did wear the suit and took lots of pictures with me. I’ve garnered so much attention that day and it was a great experience I enjoyed. Im hoping to do a cosplay photoshoot in my Captain Spidey suit sometime in the new year. At one of the cons I attended earlier this year, I borrowed one of my friends’ Captain America shield to carry around with me for that day. It was the first time holding a shield like that and it suited well with my cosplay.

I recently bought another Spider-Man suit, but I’ll tell you more about it in another article. A few months ago, I’ve done a review of my Captain Spidey suit and praised Zentaizone for customizing it what I wanted to be. If you haven’t seen my review for it, I’ll post a link at the end of this article so you can read it yourself. I feel like my Captain Spidey suit and I are meant to be and you’ll be seeing more of him and my other Spider-Man suit in 2020.
