Supermannequin…

A truly incredible and unique display – this intricate life-size creation was on loan from Stephen Lane’s (Propstore of London) personal collection to the Movieum Of London (now renamed the London Film Museum) last year. Not only is the reworked portrait of Christopher Reeve generated from one of Stuart Freeborn’s few surviving life-casts but the costume is 100% original and one of the finest examples still in existence today.  Worn by Reeve and screen-matched to the Luthor’s lair confrontation scenes in Superman: The Movie and the alleyway change scene in Superman II, the costume is ideally preserved on a custom mannequin and standing proudly in the magnificent rooms of County Hall, a breathtaking and eerie experience to behold. The detail evident in the images above were so revealing I was able to compile arguably the most definitive article to date about the Superman costume hosted exclusively here on Jim Bowers’ incomparable capedwonder.com where you can see more images from my shoot on the day…
