Not another Batsuit, My Batsuit


This thread I'm intending to use to document my batsuit build. I don't have a lot of money but I do have skills and patience, so I don't consider this a budget build.

I'm currently building a batsuit from scratch. Originally intended for Halloween about 5 yrs ago, I built a cowl out of paper, duct tape, and cloth but since then and through a few heavy revisions, it's turned into something completely different. I found a construction adhesive called 'liquid nails' and after experimenting, I realized it was a pretty awesome sculpting material. So I took my paper/cloth cowl, covered it with LN, sculpted it into shape, then sanded it down once it cured.

The next step is to construct the neck piece. My plan is to make a diver mask essentially, or buy a cheap one, then pad it with foam to form muscle definition, then possibly spray it with plastidip to match the material/sheen of the headpiece.

Below are the most recent images I took. I'm currently reshaping the ears a tad and am adding more detail to the scowl. There's 2 mockups as well to show how it could look with the neck piece finished.

That is a nice fitting cowl, it looks great in proportions to your face, and that is the most important aspect to make a cowl look impressive. I also like the eye covers. I also used covers this year for the first time and its very convenient because I did not had to use black color. Congratulation on your built!

That's a pretty impressive result from some not so standard materials (as compared to what others do. Congrats on it. Looks like your suit is off to a great start.
