I forgot he had one. In fact, he doesn't even wear any pants at all in "Man of Steel". Holy Tripe!

As Keenan Ivory Wayans' Men on Film would say "HATED it!"

Uh, but the belt looks good - sorry I lost focus for a moment. I got taken in. I'm no longer too young for that sort of thing.

Hi Leon,
Great Job!!!!! George was my favorite hero as a little boy during the 50's and I had one of the 1st Supes suit that was made for kids and it was accurate!
Two quick questions? What type of fabric are You using for the basic suit? Is it a 1950's style or something more modern?
Thanks and....Cheers,
Larry

Again we get to see a fan made prop. I Love to see these efforts from fans. Who didn't love George Reeves as Superman. He was my first (as was he to many others)exposure to the character. This belt looks fantastic! Great job my friend.
