1939 Batman Project NEW PIX


Hello fellow members of the BOTB. This is going to be something a little different, but hopefully fun, for not only the individuals involved, but for the board as a whole. There has been some less than inspirational things happening as of late and the hope is that this will bring some excitement back to the community.

First, the explaination. Four current members of the board decided to go in on a group project, namely a 1939 costume project. Each one has a different vision as to how they would like to create their respective look, however all want the same type of '39 styled cowl. There are a couple cowls that are currently available but a custom cowl was what was decided that would be needed. The 4 contacted a 5th member for a custom sculpt, who agreed, and is now involved with this project. We do want to share this project with our fellow members, but wanted to do something original in the process. This member account was created for the 5 involved to use to post updates, but to also keep our main usernames a secret until each of our respective projects are completed. This user name will only be used in this thread and for updates on the project. When this project is complete, we hope that it can be moved into the archive so that future members can share the experience.

Now, let the fun begin.....

Re: 1939 Batman Project


why the need for secrecy? It sounds like a cool project. although other 1939 batman suits do exist.

My one real question pertaining to the suits.. If you all 4 are going to do seperate styles of the same costume, what kind of variations are planned? You say you commisioned a 5th member to do the cowl, does that mean you will all be wearing the same cowl in your suits?

Im interested to see the outcome of all this, but still dont get why you have to create a new username, and keep your identities secret. I was under the impression that being a community like this, more information would be revealed as to who is involved and such.

Anyway, good luck whoever you are. Ill stay tuned for updates.

Re: 1939 Batman Project


I gotta refute the post from Willrobin.... I mean, what's more exciting than a little SECRECY? I am TOTALLY on edge to see how this turns out, I have been reading the original few years of the Batman comics and I gotta say, what a costume that was! I'll be watching this thread religiously! You've got my attention!

Oh and on a side note, the drama lately ahs been a huge turn-off, I have been spending less time here because of the lack of FUN! I am SURE I'm not the only one. Good work so far, whomever you are!!

Re: 1939 Batman Project


Figured the "secrecy" thing may come up, but we are only doing it this way to do something different. Nothing more. Just to add some fun to the board.

yes, we will all have the same basic cowl, however a couple have ideas for distinguishing theirs from the others.

As for the suits themselves, without giving too much away at once, each one has a particular style in mind. One is going for a straight up 1939 replica. One has an idea for a more noir/horror look, while another is thinking along the lines fo a possible wetsuit/armor look, and the final being a more "industrial" approach.

You've got a right to do whatever you want. It's your project! I can't wait to see how this turns out. I love seeing stuff like this. Keep us updated! :up

Re: 1939 Batman Project


Neat idea. I like a little mystery now and then.

Maybe the cowl is still in the design stage, so I hate to sound nit-picky, but shouldn't the ears be a tad longer?

P.S

This project is gonna be one of the most interesting ones I've seen. The suits that come out of this should be pretty amazing!

D'oh! :geez

I just reread the first post. It's a miniature, not THE cowl sculpt. Mea culpa.

Where's an Edit button when you need one? emoticon

I think we lost the edit button about 2 weeks ago with people putting their foots firmly into mouth! My bad typing skills are going to show.....
