my batsuit


hey guys, im new to the board and i wanted to post my costume i made to get some feedback, I have a few things i am going to fix, one being the bright yellow belt, im going to spray-paint it darker, and i also need help with my cowl, i got it off ebay and all, but the bottom of the nose portion droops down a bit, so can anyone help me fix that problem.

also when you look at the pictures the actual jumpsuit looks shiny and silver like, but that is because of the flash on the camera, i got the jumpsuit from [sign in to see URL] and though it was made with a shinnier fabric, it still is pretty dark when just looking at it, but if you could help me with the nose of the cowl, that would be great.

Re: my batsuit


Hey Welcome!
Great looking Bat.
I'll bet you scared the hell out of those picnic'ers. :rollin
I use to reinforce the area under the nose with guaze bandage, and latex.
Now I would probably cut a little "V" in that area under the nose, pull it together, and Bondini another piece of latex inside the nose area, to draw it together a little more.
Good luck with it.
-Brin

Re: my batsuit


good call, that actually would be the best idea how to fix it, i have under the noe inside where my nose rests a foam pad right now, so i can take that off, cut the v, then put it back on with super glue to hold it together and stop the droop, cause that is teh only real problem i have left with the costume, thanks again. :signal

Re: my batsuit


Perhaps also cut the neck line to a "V" and put the cape under the cowl. Great suit so far

Re: my batsuit


Are your eyes supposed to glow in those last two pictures? Just makes it look more menacing.

Oh and get us some daytime pictures while you're at it!

Re: my batsuit


here are some pics down in the basement of my house, so you can get a better viewing of it, check them out, and remeber the actual spandex is darker than the flash on camera makes it.
