Re: Batsuit storage/transportation


Might be reading the replies wrong, but....I don't believe I see anything about storing the suit and accessories....just stuff for transporting.

We have company coming over soon, and I have to give up the Batcave for a few weeks....how best to store latex cape, urethane suit and latex cowl?

I have a big plastic bin I could use....how long could I keep everything in there without any issues?

It gets warm in Texas....any issues with keeping the box in the garage?

Re: Batsuit storage/transportation


I've been thinking about getting one of those Gladiator garage cabinets for storing my suit at home. They are made of steel, lockable, and about $250. I could get my friend to machine me a large metal bat for the front, I think it would look pretty cool. And it would cost less than a begins closet.

I just use a hard sided suitcase with one of those travel handles and wheels.

Re: Batsuit storage/transportation


I thought about having a mannequin, but am familiar with having to undress a mannequin to wear the costume each time I need to. And that was for a Vader costume, I don't want to think about removing a skintight rubber suit from one. :shootme
  Just having a cool looking storage unit is enough for me.

Good point but I don't think I'll be wearing mine much. Let me think about that one

Re: Batsuit storage/transportation


Well i use both a mannequin and a storage device at least for my Anakin costume. When Im not wearing it its on display on a mannequin in my house. When i go to a con it gets put in this and its perfect for the job and got it at home depot.

I plan on doing the same thing for TDK when i get that finished.

Re: Batsuit storage/transportation


OKay


Let's take the mannequin out of the equation, and let's say I am not taking the suit anyplace for a few months....at least October.....

Any issues at all with storing a rubber bat suit in a 90+ degree garage for any length of time? Presumably a bit cooler in the plastic storage bin, but not much....

Will that harm my latex cape and urethane armor? Will the gluing points of the armor/undersuit come loose? Other than putting the styrofoam head inside the cowl, should I do anything else to prepare the pieces for being in storage for a while?

Your friendly neighborhood HOME DEPOT for like 60 bones. ITs made by Stanley Tools. Its big durable and lockable. I saw it when I was there for something else and it was like a light went off over my head. DING! So i bought two. One to replace the anakin bin i have and one for the TDK suit i will be getting.
