Meanwhile, DigitalFusion talks about designing Spidey's trademark red and blue suit in the second and third films:

"The catch was that we had to print on stretch fabric, so conventional color sync methods only applied so far," said DigitalFusion’s Hugh Milstein. "The trick was to play with the levels of saturation and density so that when we pulled the costume over Toby [Maguire], a darker color would stretch and become lighter - we took that into account with the digital patterns."

The site continues: "The key element in creating the suit was the subtle variations in shadow to emphasize muscle so that when Maguire put the suit on he instantly looked like he was in superhuman shape.

As for the Spider-Man 3 costume: "It's a top secret process right now," says Milstein. "But I can tell you, you're going to want to get a ticket for this one."
