Re: TDK's Ribbed Undersuit; Let's Track It Down


Kevin, can't wait to see the undersuit you're referring to. It's going to be killer if it's who I think it might be.

The great thing about this board is the evolution of the suits. Each time a movie comes out, you see a million different versions of the same suit, and they just keep getting better and better.

I think we're going to start seeing some really killer TDK suits very soon, and I can't wait.

I agree with drftfan on the undersuit. The Movie world suits were meant to have been made from the same patterns and materials as the movie suits and it's definitely 1 undersuit only on them. And it's not just 1 material, it's several different materials that go into making it (as has also been pointed out before). A friend of mine got to see one of the movie world suits in person pulled apart (unfortunately no pics though).

Re: TDK's Ribbed Undersuit; Let's Track It Down


bro's I think this tdk suit is being way over thought, I had a black spandex suit costum made and sent to me from china, the cool thing about it is that the zipper is in the back and does have a crotch zipper, it came with a spandex hood and the suit has a turtle neck, so that takes care of no skin showing between the cowl and the [sign in to see URL] i did buy the mesh body stocking and i am airbrushing it with a pewter colored [sign in to see URL] bought Artsee's facade i dont have it yet but when i get i will divide it up into pieces, gluing everything down except the chest, shoulder bicep [sign in to see URL] am looking into gluing it to a light set of football shoulder pads, because that has a back, and basically once all glued down you can slip it on over your head then add and adjust the shoulder and bicep straps that i will add, i also bought some industrial knee pads that i will glue under the shoulders so they dont buckle and will be able to move like the shoulders and biceps do on the real deal suit, finally i bought the carbon fibre material and a frosted translucent material to go over top of the carbon [sign in to see URL] is my plan [sign in to see URL] for the perfect mesh and a ribbed undersuit is pointless, it will never show up to the point that everyone will say man that is dead on accurate, I mean even in the movie you can not tell much about the mesh and the undersuit, everyone is studying the pro shots and seeing the suit in person, but most of that detail is never seen in the movie, just MO.

Re: TDK's Ribbed Undersuit; Let's Track It Down


Yam the only problem is that, as you know and I do as well, that we bat bros and star wars people and spideys etc. try to be as accurate as possible. It is an obsessive thing.
I am getting my Robin Forever armor within a few weeks...
but it doesnt have the gold bars that run down the front. So I am going to sculpt a set and add them to the suit. Little things like that.
I originally didnt have the Red Robin gloves and was just going to use a pair of panther [sign in to see URL] now I have the gloves with the red trim coming too.
It never ends. Same with my 89 suit. I trimmed the back piece off of it last year when I glued it down and now I just want a complete set with the back again even though you NEVER see it and it is fairly pointless.
I understand about the undersuit thing. I do. I also agree that it seems like it is ovekill. I said it before. That is because personally I think it would look better on a solid suit without mesh. Which is what I personally feel they should have done on the movie suit as well. With the real deal mesh you have a limited contact surfase that you glue the suit down with. A solid suit for us costume guys make more sense if you are going to wear it often. Everyone is different.

I think I know who you are referring to Kevin but who knows what cost will be.

TDK suit is easily the most complicated and I can't wait to see more finished suits.

FYI, I'm not doing the movie suit but the begins/hybrid that has been floating around here for awhile. The armour is less complicated and, imo, is better looking. I'm going with a ribbed undersuit because it will add some texture and contrast.

I know what armor idea you have. I am looing forward to seeing it on you. I think that is an excellent way to do that suit.

Re: TDK's Ribbed Undersuit; Let's Track It Down


Thanks bro,

I loved the tdk suit at first but I slowly grew disinterested in it - its way too much trouble compared to the other movie suits. Look at all the threads on just the mesh, let alone a combined mesh undersuit lol

But this suit won't even begin to be developed before my comic suit is done.

We all have different goals with our suits. Just because some want 100% accuracy it doesn't mean those that don't are building suits that are "pointless." :wink

Re: TDK's Ribbed Undersuit; Let's Track It Down


Your right we do all have diferent goals mine is just tryng to get all the peices.
I would love to be accurate but I live by WB.
So if they were to see a pretty decent suit they might ask me questions would I have to tell them or could I remain silent. I think I would remain silent.
Jamie is the whole undersuit ribbed everywhere or is it just sections.

It isnt ribbed at all. It is just really thick mesh with a solid backing. But all one piece. I said in another thread somewhere that it is like newer car seats or tennis shoes. It is similar to that mesh material that is being used on products now.
