Re: Rubie Clooney suit Pics please!!


I saw that article before on the web. Now did he accurize the suit EXTERNALLY, reworking the muscles?

 I know he reinforced it inside.

Nobody has done it and never will probably. One would need to sculpt rubber type stuff over the suit.

Re: Rubie Clooney suit Pics please!!


Ringdog,

  This was just beefing it up so it would be less floppy and mounting it to a wetsuit for the guy who was on a VERY limited budget and way before I even had a more "High End" suit.

 and squidbat, You are very welcome Bro.

  and Jon, you are soo right. (about everything you said). I feel we the "old timers" have a responsibility to help when ever possible.

I know now the most likely source for screen accurate batsuit pieces and it's NOT here.

I see there's a reissue (?) commemorative vinyl Returns cowl, maybe like the old Collegeville one.

I know CLTBat did something similar with one of the '97 Rubies foam chests a few years back. Turned out pretty good from what I can recall.

See, Ed, there I go again with that memory!:p

Re: Rubie Clooney suit Pics please!!


Here's my old Rubies suit...
Image
I reinforced the chest piece with a hard plastic chest, added straps, and removed the shoulders.
I also added a pleather cape, and one of Brucewayne131's belts to bring the level of the suit up some more.
I always loved Ed's tutorial, I may have to get another one of the Rubie's suits just to see what I could do with it now.

That's a Rubies CLOONEY one? I was'nt aware that the reinforcing the insides would do that much for the outer suit's look. Even the muscles on the leggings stand out, some anyway.

 Alas, studio grade cans of liquid latex is'nt avaliable to me but the Rubies would still be inaccurate.

My analness comes from being around Trek models guys who HAVE to have their star ships really accurate. Same for their monster figure models, etc.

Ringodog,

  You also have to be aware that early versions of the Rubies suit were MUCH better. The story goes that they were "supposedly" pulled from movie molds (thought I highly doubt that was true). The truth is though they were originally more accurate (I have one that was actually preordered) but the ones they are spewing out now are horrible. The one I have even has back muscles and would probably mod out fantastically. The one I modded for that guy way back when was a horrible pull and I basically just did the best I could with what I had in hand. Incidentally the guy was very happy with it and IMHO that's all that really mattered.
