My comic costume


I've been a member for quite a while, though I must admit I lurk far more than I participate,and I've finally decided to post a pic of my comic style costume. These pics were taken a couple years ago when My buddy Andy(the Joker) and I were doing promo work for the Memphis Comic and Fantasy convention, and as I am once again going to be the Bat for this years con I thought it would be nice to show off a bit before I overhaul and upgrade my suit!Image

Don't change the cowl, it looks perfect with your face.
 I like the belt pouches as well, by chance could you tell us where you got them and what kind they are? :up :up

Re: My comic costume


actually the belt pouches are kind of a funny story, I found them a while back at Walmart, they were originally black camera pouches, and they were on clearance. I liked the shape of them so I bought them and painted them with acrylic paint. They have a really cool leather like texture now. As far as the upgrades go, first I have been working out like crazy so that I can be in better shape come this October. As far as the costume, I plan on getting a Dye sublimated suit, building some New 52 style gauntlets and boot armor and getting some new gloves with the kevlar knuckle armor, and to top it all off I'm going to get one of Reeves new 2 piece JL cowls, same shape but I'll actually be able to turn my head and it wil fit a little better, as I had to pad the hush cowl a little bit. I'll post pics as it gets closer to completion, and thanks for the nice comments guys! emoticon

Batman: Year One jumped to mind. That's just a great classic look. Look forward to the next stage.

Re: My comic costume


Thanks, year one is what I was going for!! It is my all time fav story in the comics, and the DC animated movie was even really good! And no I don't have any pics of the new cowl, but he has posted a few on FB I think.
