Finally It's My Turn - My 89 Batsuit


First off I would like to say thank you to both Janty and JPsimmons for not only offering these amazing costumes, but also putting up with my almost daily "where is it, where is it" emails. I have been very happy with my costume.

This is my 1st batsuit and I am sure its not gonna be the last either. I didnt get a chance to finish it 100%, but thats okay. It was a huge hit both at my work and the roaming halloween party at the University of Dayton.

What have I learned this weekened? One, the cowl is hot, but its a small price for the level of quality it is. Secondly, and more importantly, chicks love batman (and I didnt even have a batmobile). I cant tell you how many people came up to me to ask about the costume or touch it and ask where it came from. :) Oh, my girlfriend just loved that. "You know all the girls in the bathroom line were asking "Did you see Batman!".

I still need to get some "real" 89 boots and gloves and glue to the rubber down to a different undersuit. I'm thinking a new scuba one piece deal. Anyway, here are my pics and I will post more when I get them. Again thank you Janty and JPsimmons!

Thanks in advance

John,

I guess that means JP is responsible for the cape only and Jants is all the other stuff (-minus the boots), right?

Question brubakes, how tall are you?

Thanks in advance.

Blackwood Bat, you are right on the money. The cape is JP the rest is Janty. The boots were a last second pick up at WalMart. I didnt have time to get the real 89 boots made, although I do have the parts from Janty.

oh, and I am 6'1".
