Congrats to all of the honorable mentions and finalists… and now here’s the winner! – Chris Arrant
First Place Winner: Mike Dimayuga!
Total Score: 56 (Out of a possible 70 points)
Vito: 9. This is what I was talking about in Kris Anka’s design. The lack of a spider logo isn’t missed here in Mike’s because the web pattern serves as an identifier. The scarf is cool, but I can take it or leave it. The webs coming from the fingers is a huge addition, one that I wish Marvel would implement.
Josh: 8. Lose the scarf. But those web fingers? That’s some lateral thinking, and no one else in the group did anything like that. Again, the helmet is a nice touch, and while multiple eyes are hinted at, it’s subtle, and doesn’t gross me out.
Ron: 7. I kinda like the scarf. It keeps him warm and is swashbuckling in a 1920s pilot kind of style. I too like the finger-web shooters, but I always dislike the bracelet/external webshooters. Those should be hidden. Not a big fan of the multiple eyes but this does make it work, so I could warm up to it with this one.
Conor: 7.5. I LOVE the web fingers. Fantastic. I am of two minds on the scarf. On the one hand I’m a big fan of scarves. They are jaunty and keep you warm. On the other, it would probably get tangled up in the webbing and would be easy to yank on in battle. Again, the multiple eyes thing freaks me out, but I am willing to accept that that might just be me.
Rachel: 7. I really like the general design of the bodysuit, but the red parts look more like brick than web. Bonus points for the tabi boots, which make a lot of sense for Spider-Man, since he’s all about the dexterity. Does the mask remind anyone else of one of the various Goblin iterations?
Chris A.: 9.5. Man oh man, does Mike D. draw for me or what? The cut of the suit, the vertical piping, even the buckle-less belt all add up to amazing. That helmet is amazing, but the scarf has to go.
