The Rob Granito Of Spider-Man Cosplay


From the Evening Express in Aberdeen, Scotland.

AN ABERDEEN comic book fan has taken his love of superheroes to another level – by making his own Spider-Man costume.

Graham Alexander created the outfit from scratch.

The 27-year-old from Peterculter said: "It took me 60 hours to do it all.

"There are hundreds of thousands of little painted patterns on it."

The costume was designed using Photoshop then transferred on to fabric using a digital printer.

And the results have impressed bosses at Aberdeen's Cineworld Queens Links where Graham was invited to greet cinema-goers for The Amazing Spider-Man 2's first showing.


That name was certainly familiar. Graham Alexander… quick! To Google! Oh yes…

He gained some notoriety for commissioning a Spider-Man costume by an independent designer, before claiming it to be his own design, before selling it on. He got quite a lot of internet hate, before he then went back and amended posts to remove any suggestion he was the designer. Though, obviously, he missed a few. There were a number of long threads across the internet detailing it all.


And now he's back to saying he created it all himself! I'm sure that won't cause any problems at all.

Oh look, the newspaper article has a comment thread.
