The color is great on it. Very stoked to get mine. Read up on shortening zippers from the top down. Very easy actually. And spandex doesn't really fray whatsoever so not much finishing work will be needed if I did decided to take the head off completely.

Cheers!

Hi, these are the boots I chose for my batman costume. They're rubber wellingtons (sorry I don't know what American's call them) made by toggi and they have a soft gortex linning, I bought them from a farm shop called countrywide. They're a nice tight fit and were a fairly reasonable price.
I was thinking of cutting the tops so they have the trade mark slope. Has anyone else done this?

I would go ahead and give them that slope. I've seen several different guys on here (and some online videos) do the same.

Re: Classic comic batman Belt (costume to follow)


those rubber boots are nicely shaped...the ones we have over here have very wide openings, hence the need to make it smaller so it doesnt flip flop around when utilized for costumes. ..looking good.

Those look very similar to the hero 100 boots I have without the slope. An easy fix is to trim the top down into the slope shape, then just use a black Sharpie to color in the cut edge if it is not black after you trim it.

Once the hard plastic ears were fixed into the rubber cowl I then filled them with expanding foam. hopefully they'll stay solid.
